Part 2 – Part 3 – In the first of a four-part series, Yoshua Bengio opens his hour-long Keynote from October 2019 discussing the current state of Deep Learning and how Human-level AI capabilities have been worked toward in 2019. Yoshua’s opening remarks proclaimed that there are principles giving rise to intelligence, both machine or animal, which can be described using the laws of physics. That is, that our intelligence is not gained through a big bag of tricks, but rather the use of mechanisms used to specifically acquire knowledge. Similar to the laws of physics, we should consider understanding the physical world, mostly by having figured out the laws of physics, not just by describing its consequences.
