Science Documentary: Genetics, Robotics, Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence
There are several technologies emerging that will change what it means to be called a human being. Genetics is the manipulation of cells at their most basic levels. Along with genomics, the manipulation of proteins will give scientists the ability to create whatever they want.
In the pharmaceutical industry, one of the most exciting treatments to arise are memory pills. These should be available in the coming years to treat patients with alzheimer’s and eventually the general public. The possibilities include eventually being able to take a pill to help you learn another language, improve test taking, etc.
Another interesting promise of the future of genetics is the promise of various new vaccines to help quit smoking. Also, DARPA has developed an anti-sleep vaccine. This is a vaccine that simply shuts off the trigger that makes us fall asleep. Another human enhancement technology being developed by DARPA is a drug that triggers the body to burn fat cells.
The future of robotics involves the melding of human and machine attributes into what can be referred to as a cyborg. Intelligent machines are becoming more and more prevalent in military combat. And they are also becoming much more complex. Wearable robot suits that amplify your lifting capacity will be available in the not so distant future.
Consciousness and Neuroscience
One of the biggest mysteries in neuroscience is consciousness. Scientists have discovered a lot about the brain, but little progress has been made in understanding consciousness. It is as if the study of the brain and mind are separate. It is puzzling to scientists as to why we subjectively experience anything. If we understood every single brain cell and every single brain process, we still would not understand consciousness as a physical object within the brain. Any kind of theory of the brain, that is able to handle and support an understanding of subjective experience or neuro-rehabilitation or other such complex brain functions may revolutionize artificial intelligence and robotics.
AGI – Artificial General Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is currently being used to control animated characters in video games. Integrating Artificial intelligence into robotics has proved rather difficult. As humans, we use metaphors everyday in our speech to describe complex ideas. Trying to teach robots to be able to interpret and comprehend these metaphors could be a tough task. But as scientists progress in their integration of artificial intelligence and robotics, we may soon see more and more of our human senses replicated in a much more precise and sophisticated fashion.
Optical Quantum Computing
The future of medial treatment may involve the use of quantum computers. Patients will have a device like a cell phone that they carry with them which monitors their health and sends the information to their doctor who can then prescribe treatment to his patient. Understanding quantum physics has allowed researchers to develop this technology as well as other more and more complex quantum technologies.

Machine Learning for Engineering and Science Applications – Intro Video
In this talk, I will introduce the audience to the emerging area of
computational social science, focusing on how machine learning for social science differs from machine learning in other contexts. I will present two related models — both based on Bayesian Poisson tensor decomposition — for uncovering latent structure from count data. The first is for uncovering topics in previously classified government documents, while the second is for uncovering multilateral relations from country-to-country interaction data. Finally, I will talk briefly about the broader ethical implications of analyzing social data.
Hanna Wallach is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research New York City and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is also a member of UMass’s Computational Social Science Institute. Hanna develops machine learning methods for analyzing the structure, content, and dynamics of social processes. Her work is inherently interdisciplinary: she collaborates with political scientists, sociologists, and journalists to understand how organizations work by analyzing publicly available interaction data, such as email networks, document collections, press releases, meeting transcripts, and news articles. To complement this agenda, she also studies issues of fairness, accountability, and transparency as they relate to machine learning. Hanna’s research has had broad impact in machine learning, natural language processing, and computational social science. In 2010, her work on infinite belief networks won the best paper award at the Artificial Intelligence and Statistics conference; in 2014, she was named one of Glamour magazine’s “35 Women Under 35 Who Are Changing the Tech Industry”; in 2015, she was elected to the International Machine Learning Society’s Board of Trustees; and in 2016, she was named co-winner of the 2016 Borg Early Career Award. She is the recipient of several National Science Foundation grants, an Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity grant, and a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Hanna is committed to increasing diversity and has worked for over a decade to address the underrepresentation of women in computing. She co-founded two projects—the first of their kind—to increase women’s involvement in free and open source software development: Debian Women and the GNOME Women’s Summer Outreach Program. She also co-founded the annual Women in Machine Learning Workshop, which is now in its eleventh year. Hanna holds a BA in computer science from the University of Cambridge, an MSc in cognitive science and machine learning from the University of Edinburgh, and a PhD in machine learning from the University of Cambridge.

Some chronic conditions, such as the autoimmune disease scleroderma, are especially difficult to treat because patients exhibit highly variable symptoms, complications and treatment responses. The process of finding an effective treatment for an individual can be frustrating for doctors, and painful and expensive for patients.
With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), computer scientist and professor Suchi Saria, with Dr. Fredrick Wigley and an interdisciplinary team of experts at Johns Hopkins University, is leading a groundbreaking effort using Big Data to ease some of that pain for scleroderma patients. The team’s research is in machine learning, a subfield of computer science and statistics that allows machines to learn from data. The team designs statistical algorithms that enable computers to analyze large volumes of medical records and identify subgroups of patients with similar patterns of disease progression.
In addition, the system learns the symptoms and treatments that are predictive of specific patterns of improvement or deterioration to help doctors pick the right set of treatments for an individual patient. Doctors can then map the course of treatment for new patients, based in part on what the computers reveal about what happened to other patients with similar symptoms.
Saria foresees data analysis similar to this helping clinicians treat other chronic diseases, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

What is consciousness? “I think under certain circumstances being conscious is an important part of a mind; it’s a model of a model of a model basically. What it means is our mind (our new cortex) produces this dream that we take to be the world based on the sensory data – so it’s basically a hallucination that predicts what next hits your retina – that’s the world. Out there, we don’t know what this is.. The universe is some kind of weird pattern generator with some quantum properties. And this pattern generator throws patterns at us, and we try to find regularity in them – and the hidden layers of this neural network amount to latent variables that are colors people sounds ideas and so on.. And this is the world that we subjectively inhabit – that’s the world that we find meaningful.”
… “I find theories [about consciousness] that make you feel good very suspicious. If there is something that is like my preferred outcome for emotional reasons, I should be realising that I have a confirmation bias towards this – and that truth is a very brutal vector”..
Joscha Bach, Ph.D. is an AI researcher who worked and published about cognitive architectures, mental representation, emotion, social modeling, and multi-agent systems. He earned his Ph.D. in cognitive science from the University of Osnabrück, Germany, and has built computational models of motivated decision making, perception, categorization, and concept-formation. He is especially interested in the philosophy of AI and in the augmentation of the human mind.

As Artificial Intelligence (AI) becomes more prevalent and powerful in our society, it becomes essential to look to its moral consequences. How can a machine become moral? How do some of the deeper questions of morality, especially those surrounding religion, evolution, and reason factor into this equation? This talk explores these and other questions in the hope of motivating further research on a project that has the power to doom or save the human race, as we know it. Devin is Chief Technology Officer at the DGC Group, providing gamification technologies and analytics to large corporate clients. He regularly employs machine learning techniques as part of the data analytic services and developing on an online gamification platform. He graduated from Austin College in 2009 with a double major in Philosophy and Religion. After graduating, he spent six years in Tibetan areas of China working for a non-profit, teaching English at a University, and developing an English Training School. Devin is currently pursuing his Master’s Degree at Columbia in Machine Learning, and regularly studies the philosophical and technological implications of Artificial Intelligence. Devin is especially drawn to non-western (especially Buddhist) philosophical insights of the mind and how these may have relevance in the development of Artificial Intelligence. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
So we’ve talked a lot in this series about how computers fetch and display data, but how do they make decisions on this data? From spam filters and self-driving cars, to cutting edge medical diagnosis and real-time language translation, there has been an increasing need for our computers to learn from data and apply that knowledge to make predictions and decisions. This is the heart of machine learning which sits inside the more ambitious goal of artificial intelligence. We may be a long way from self-aware computers that think just like us, but with advancements in deep learning and artificial neural networks our computers are becoming more powerful than ever.

Science Documentary: Augmented Reality, Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence
Wearable computers have made a lot of news recently. With Google glass, Meta’s space glass, etc. But the question is, how can we make them cheaper, smaller and increase battery life. Infinity Augmented Reality has been trying to solve that very problem. They have provided the the engine that translates your physical world into your virtual world.
Normal cameras are unable to sense the size of objects which they are photographing, so Occipital has created the PrimeSense 3D sensor, which is a structure sensor that gives metric distances to the surfaces of objects. So instead of sensing colors, you sense distances.
Uses for the PrimeSense 3D Structure Sensor include, real estate applications, crime scene recontruction, 3D Scanning of people and objects, and augmented reality gaming. The PrimeSense structural sensor displays the differences in distance by displaying different colors. It can also scan a 3D image that can be sent to a 3D printer, or scan an image that can be interacted with in a video game.
Large Scale Production of High Quality Nanomaterials
As the worlds population grows, the amount of people requiring health care is growing as well. Nanotechnology has promised to provide help in this area. There are many nanomaterials available that have very interesting properties, and these nanomaterials are currently being made in the lab. But since these nanomaterials are so small you need lots of them in order for them to be of any use. Nanomaterials are created using either the top down method or the bottom up method. One way is the chemical vapor deposition method, by which nanomaterials can be produced fairly quickly, you need heat, a carbon precursor, and a metal catalyst. But we need to be able to control the production of nanomaterials or they would be useless. Researchers have been successful in controlling nanomaterials like graphene. Various factors influence the formation of nanomaterials. Graphene and copper is a standard method. Filling carbon nanotubes with magnetic material could be useful in the medical field for drug delivery. And by combining conductive materials with insulating materials, you could create efficient electronics, or sensors, etc.
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
In creating artificial intelligence, scientists have found that what they thought would be simple to create is actually quite hard, and what you would think would be hard to create is actually quite simple, since it is easier to replicate a great chess player than a small child. Combining the collective intelligence of humans and machines, or multiplicity is the idea of many people working together with groups of machines to solve problems.

I think right now everybody is already perceiving that this is the decade of AI. And there is nothing like artificial intelligence that drives the digitization of the world. Historically artificial intelligence has always been the pioneer battallion of computer science.
When something was new and untested it was done in the field of AI, because it was seen as something that requires intelligence in some way, a new way of modeling things. Intelligence can be understood to a very large degree as the ability to model new systems, to model new problems.
And so it’s natural that even narrow AI is about making models of the world. For instance our current generation of deep-learning systems are already modeling things. They’re not modeling things quite in the same way with the same power as human minds can do it—They’re mostly classifiers, not simulators of complete worlds. But they’re slowly getting there, and by making these models we are, of course, digitizing things. We are making things accessible in data domains. We are making these models accessible to each other by computers and by AI systems.
And AI systems provide extensions to all our minds. Already now Google is something like my exo-cortex. It’s something that allows me to act as vast resources of information that get integrated in the way I think and extend my abilities. If I forget how to use a certain command in a programming language, it’s there at my fingertips, and I entirely rely on this like every other programmer on this planet. This is something that is incredibly powerful, and was not possible when we started out programming, when we had to store everything in our own brains.
I think consciousness is a very difficult concept to understand because we mostly know it by reference. We can point at it. But it’s very hard for us to understand what it actually is.
And I think at this point the best model that I’ve come up with—what we mean by consciousness—it is a model of a model of a model.
That is: our new cortex makes a model of our interactions with the environment. And part of our new cortex makes a model of that model, that is, it tries to find out how we interact with the environment so we can take this into account when we interaction with the environment. And then you have a model of this model of our model which means we have something that represents the features of that model, and we call this the Self.
And the self is integrated with something like an intentional protocol. So we have a model of the things that we attended to, the things that we became aware of: why we process things and why we interact with the environment. And this protocol, this memory of what we attended to is what we typically associate with consciousness. So in some sense we are not conscious in actuality in the here and now, because that’s not really possible for a process that needs to do many things over time in order to retrieve items from memory and process them and do something with them.
Consciousness is actually a memory. It’s a construct that is reinvented in our brain several times a minute.
And when we think about being conscious of something it means that we have a model of that thing that makes it operable, that we can use.
You are not really aware of what the world is like. The world out there is some weird [viewed?] quantum graph. It’s something that we cannot possibly really understand —first of all because we as observers cannot really measure it. We don’t have access to the full vector of the universe.
What we get access to is a few bits that our senses can measure in the environment. And from these bits our brain tries to derive a function that allows us to predict the next observable bits.
So in some sense all these concepts that we have in our mind, all these experiences that we have—sounds, people, ideas and so on— are not features of the world out there. There are no sounds in the world out there, no colors and so on. These are all features of our mental representations. They’re used to predict the next set of bits that are going to hit our retina or our eardrums.
I think the main reason why AI was started was that it was a science to understand the mind. It was meant to take over where psychology stopped making progress. Sometime after Piaget, at this point in the 1950s psychology was in this thrall of behaviorism. That means that it only focused on observable behavior. And in some sense psychology has not fully recovered from this. Even now “thinking” is not really a term in psychology, and we don’t have good ways to study thoughts and mental processes. What we study is human behavior in psychology. And in neuroscience we mostly study brains, nervous systems.
Elon Musk, Stuart Russell, Ray Kurzweil, Demis Hassabis, Sam Harris, Nick Bostrom, David Chalmers, Bart Selman, and Jaan Tallinn discuss with Max Tegmark (moderator) what likely outcomes might be if we succeed in building human-level AGI, and also what we would like to happen.
The Beneficial AI 2017 Conference: In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients and followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.
