AI & The Future Of Civilization

Stephen Wolfram is a British scientist known for his work in computer science, mathematics, and in theoretical physics. He is the author of the book A New Kind of Science. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society. Stephen Wolfram published his first scientific paper at the age of 15, and received his PhD in theoretical physics from Caltech by the age of 20. Having started to

Artificial Intelligence and Minds

Is the brain a computer? Do machines calculate the same way humans do? Can artificial intelligence ever be conscious? What does it even mean to be “intelligent”? To answer these questions, Steve Patterson, a rationalist philosopher and author working outside of academia, spoke with Dr. Bram van Heuveln of RPI. Bram van Heuveln is a passionate educator who continually tries to improve the effectiveness of the many different undergraduate courses

Tech giants team up for artificial intelligence alliance

Some of the biggest tech giants in the country, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon and IBM, are teaming up to get ahead of the curve on artificial intelligence. CNET Editor Brian Tong joins CBSN to talk about how this will change the future.Some of the biggest tech giants in the country, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon and IBM, are teaming up to get ahead of the curve on artificial intelligence.

Making a Human Connection

We have been talking about robots and artificial intelligence forever, or so it sometimes seems. Images of smart machinery have inhabited our thinking and our literary and cultural imaginations long before technology made such objects possible. It is tempting to keep separate the art and science of the robot and the artificial intelligence that underpins it. However, there are reasons to thread them back together. After all, the AI of

Why the three laws of robotics won't save us from Google's AI

The dangers of strong AI have been explored in dozens of movies and books – including the I, Robot series from Isaac Asimov – which gave us the three laws of robotics. But are they any good? Society has often gone through fundamental changes, mainly related to man’s attempts to master the world in which he lives. We had the industrial revolution, the space age and the information age. We

Towards Bridging The Gap Between Deep Learning And Biology

We explore the following crucial question: How could brains potentially perform the kind of powerful credit assignment that allows hidden layers of a very deep network to be trained and that has been so successful with deep learning recently? 27 September 2016, Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, Berkeley University Yoshua Bengio is Full Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, head of the Montreal Institute for Learning

Artificial Intelligence And Robotics

Would you like to watch an Informative Documentary on Artificial Intelligence And Robotics recorded recently ? Computers can already solve problems in limited realms. The basic idea of AI problem-solving is very simple, though its execution is complicated. First, the AI robot or computer gathers facts about a situation through sensors or human input. The computer compares this information to stored data and decides what the information signifies. The computer

Deep Learning and the Future of AI

Over the last few years, rapid progress in AI have enabled our smartphones, social networks, and search engines to understand our voice, recognize our faces, and identifiy objects in our photos with very good accuracy. These dramatic improvements are due in large part to the emergence of a new class of machine learning methods known as Deep Learning. Animals and humans can learn to see, perceive, act, and communicate with
