AI is already transforming many industries—much like how the advent of electricity impacted manufacturing, transportation, communication, and refrigeration. “The best technologies disappear into the background” says Andrew Ng, and he believes someday AI will become as ubiquitous as electricity is today. Andrew has a conversation with TEDxBoston moderators, Ryan Adams and Katherine Gorman (co-hosts of Talking Machines podcast) to discuss the importance of lifelong learning and the “surprisingly clear path to use AI to transform multiple industries.” Dr. Andrew Ng is Chief Scientist at Baidu, where he is responsible for driving the company’s global AI strategy and infrastructure. He leads Baidu Research in Beijing and Silicon Valley as well as technical teams in the areas of speech, image search and big data. In addition to his role at Baidu, Dr. Ng is Chairman and Co-founder of Coursera, the worlds largest Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) platform. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University’s Computer Science Department. Dr. Ng has authored or co-authored over 100 research papers in machine learning, robotics and related fields. In 2013 he was named to the Time 100 list of the most influential persons in the world. He holds degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, MIT and the University of California, Berkeley. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
This #ameca demo couples automated speech recognition with GPT 3 – a large language model that generates meaningful answers – the output is fed to an online TTS service which generates the voice and visemes for lip sync timing. The team at Engineered Arts ltd pose the questions. Nothing in this video is pre scripted – the model is given a basic prompt describing Ameca, giving the robot a description of self – its pure #ai The pauses are the time lag for processing the speech input, generating the answer and processing the text back into speech

Rodney Brooks, the chairman of Rethink Robotics and the former director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab, and Nicholas Thompson, editor of, examine the current state of robotics and A.I. They will cover the problems that robots can and can’t solve and the future effect that robots will have on our economy and our personal lives. They’ll also tackle concerns about the dangers of artificial intelligence, and the ways that robots and A.I. could change the nature of warfare. Dr. Brooks will describe his decades of research into this field and his suggestions for policies that will best help humanity handle the changes that advances in robotics are bringing about.
