Artificial Intelligence: Pioneering a New Path

Idonae Lovetrue discusses the difference between mental and physical artificial intelligence. For too long, she argues, we have been focusing on algorithms for mental processing and it is time to rethink this position. Since 2015 she and her husband have been running Demiurge Technologies, a startup in Zug devoted to pioneering a new path in the area of physical artificial intelligence. Idonae Lovetrue discusses the difference between mental and physical

The Deep End of Deep Learning

Artificial Neural Networks are inspired by some of the “computations” that occur in human brains—real neural networks. In the past 10 years, much progress has been made with Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning due to accelerated computer power (GPUs), Open Source coding libraries that are being leveraged, and in-the-moment debates and corroborations via social media. Hugo Larochelle shares his observations of what’s been made possible with the underpinnings of

Food and Brain

When it comes to what you bite, chew and swallow, your choices have a direct and long-lasting effect on the most powerful organ in your body: your brain. So which foods cause you to feel so tired after lunch? Or so restless at night? Mia Nacamulli takes you into the brain to find out. “Have you ever had a gut feeling or butterflies in your stomach? Has hunger ever changed

How we teach computers to understand pictures

When a very young child looks at a picture, she can identify simple elements: “cat,” “book,” “chair.” Now, computers are getting smart enough to do that too. What’s next? In a thrilling talk, computer vision expert Fei-Fei Li describes the state of the art — including the database of 15 million photos her team built to “teach” a computer to understand pictures — and the key insights yet to come.

Artificial Intelligence will kill us: Jay Tuck

“Artificial intelligence is smarter than you are.. In fact a lot of people who work in artificial intelligence believe that artificial intelligence is thousand times smarter than we are. It will be moving at speeds that are a hundred thousand times as fast as we think and it will be digesting information and data a million times more than we can. What is artificial intelligence? There are a lot of

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Society: Terah Lyons

Terah Lyons, discusses how Artificial Intelligence is currently handled by US government, and how this may change overtime. “Artificial intelligence or AI is a sub field of computer science which enables intelligence exhibited machines and even experts disagree about what exactly defines AI. But usually they can agree that if something exhibits intelligence if it interacts with its environment complex ways then we can generally call it AI. Though the field

How Will Artificial Intelligence Affect Your Life : Jeff Dean

In the last five years, significant advances were made in the fields of computer vision, speech recognition, and language understanding. In this talk, Jeff Dean discusses why and how these advances have come about, what the implications are for areas as diverse as robotics, healthcare, human creativity and computer hardware design, and why these possibilities are so exciting. Jeff Dean is a Senior Fellow in Google’s Research Group, where he

Why Diversity Matters: Matt Zeiler

Artificial intelligence expert Matt Zeiler explains why diversity in building Artificial Intelligence matters. Matthew Zeiler is an artificial intelligence expert with a Ph.D. in machine learning from NYU. His groundbreaking research in visual recognition, alongside renowned machine learning pioneers Geoff Hinton and Yann LeCun, has propelled the image recognition industry from theory to real-world practice. As the founder of Clarifai, Matt is applying his award-winning research to create the best

Artificial Intelligence is Eating Our World

Fabian Westerheide’s TEDx Talk dived into the challenges and opportunities of a world in which intelligent machines and humans coexist together. Artificial intelligence is and will be integrated more into vital parts of human life. Not only human jobs will be replaced by machines. Artificial intelligence will also challenge human thinking, art and culture. What comes after is the concept of Superintelligence and Singularity. “I got my first computer in

How AI will make us collectively creative

As a managing Director of Idea2Innovation Sweden AB, Jakob is exploring the intersection between human creativity and new technologies and his team. They focus on idea generation and co-creation. In his talk at TEDxÖstersund, he is describing how the new possibilities arising from big data and artificial intelligence will enhance our capacity to collaborate and innovate at scale and make new friends! We are facing some serious challenges today in
