D’Wave is the first to be commercially available in the race to Quantum Supremacy, but who else is a contender? Quantum Computing is a force to be reckoned with, particularly if/when an A.I. were to take the steering wheel…. In this video, I tried to put together helpful info that clarifies how quantum computing works, and points out the fatal flaws in D-Wave Systems, which need gigantic freezers to even work at all. Let me know if I was unclear on any points–I’m happy to answer questions asked by polite folks who, like me, are seeking answers to what is happening around us. Here are links to the videos featured in this presentation: D Wave NASA Google Quantum A.I.

Filmmaker Jay Shapiro has produced a new series of audio documentaries, exploring the major topics that Sam has focused on over the course of his career. Each episode weaves together original analysis, critical perspective, and novel thought experiments with some of the most compelling exchanges from the Making Sense archive. Whether you are new to a particular topic, or think you have your mind made up about it, we think you’ll find this series fascinating. In this episode, we explore the landscape of Artificial Intelligence. We’ll listen in on Sam’s conversation with decision theorist and artificial-intelligence researcher Eliezer Yudkowsky, as we consider the potential dangers of AI — including the control problem and the value-alignment problem — as well as the concepts of Artificial General Intelligence, Narrow Artificial Intelligence, and Artificial Super Intelligence. We’ll then be introduced to philosopher Nick Bostrom’s “Genies, Sovereigns, Oracles, and Tools,” as physicist Max Tegmark outlines just how careful we need to be as we travel down the AI path. Computer scientist Stuart Russell will then dig deeper into the value-alignment problem and explain its importance. We’ll hear from former Google CEO Eric Schmidt about the geopolitical realities of AI terrorism and weaponization. We’ll then touch the topic of consciousness as Sam and psychologist Paul Bloom turn the conversation to the ethical and psychological complexities of living alongside humanlike AI. Psychologist Alison Gopnik then reframes the general concept of intelligence to help us wonder if the kinds of systems we’re building using “Deep Learning” are [More]
Data donation will become the new blood donation. It will feed Artificial Intelligence (AI) and mean that the health of one will be inextricably linked to the health of the whole of society, becoming a new determinant of health, a “Digital” Determinant of Health. In a visionary and far-reaching talk, Rachael A. Donalds, a doctoral student at Boston University and recent graduate of the T.H Chan Harvard School of Public Health, explains how technology has helped heal her from physical trauma, and how the same technology can be used to not only assist individuals but communities to crowdsource wellness. She explains how her experience has lead to her to create the Biosay app, which analyzes biometric data to determine how your physical and social surroundings impact our physical and mental health in the real-world and in real-time. She proposes that citizen crowdsourced health data paired with AI could provide unimaginable insights into what we currently identify as remarkable recoveries or anomalies, revealing the prescient ways we not only survive, but thrive. “If we as a society continue to be driven by what is normal or ordinary, we lose what is not just deviant but extraordinary. We may be surprised to learn that what unites us and indeed innovates medical discoveries, is not our commonalities, but our latent capacities which deviate from the moderate majority. It is my vision that Digital Determinants of Health will help us re-define the boundary between individual vs. population deviations and realize a more collaborative existence,” [More]
Listen to this episode: https://whatthesaaspodcast.fiveringsmarketing.com/episodes/prateek-joshi-ceo-of-plutoshift ‘What The SaaS?!’ Podcast: https://whatthesaaspodcast.fiveringsmarketing.com/ Prateek Joshi is the founder and CEO of Plutoshift, a data platform for industrial sustainability. They help companies achieve their sustainability goals by reducing the carbon footprint of their operations. Prateek has authored 13 books on Machine Learning and his blog has readership in 200+ countries. He has been featured on Forbes, CNBC, TechCrunch, and Bloomberg. You can visit prateekj.com to learn more about him. Key takeaways in this episode: Plutoshift was created with a combination of 2 components: Prateek’s knowledge as a Machine Learning Engineer, observing that Machine learning mechanisms are not so present in physical infrastructures as they are in digital environments. A desire to contribute in solving issues related to climate change, focusing on water usage as well as electricity and chemicals. Growing up in a small town in Southern India, Prateek went through the necessity of storing water due to the scarcity of it. Realizing this was the reality of many towns in India, Prateek developed a social and moral duty to help provide such vital resource once he found out the correlation between lack of water and climate change. It was all about customer discovery in the early days. One of the first big questions to be answered was: Who would be interested enough in solving this problem and how well they are doing it today?. A big portion of the early days was also dedicated to understanding more how water facilities were managed in [More]
