TED TALKS

How decision intelligence solves the world’s wicked problems

This talk was filmed at TEDxSaratogaHighSchool, an independently organized TED event (April 15, 2016).In this talk, Lorien Pratt discusses Artificial Intelligence, Intelligence Augmentation, Deep Learning, and how she and other tech pioneers are harnessing these tools to advance machine learning and intelligent decision modeling technology. Who is Lorien Pratt? Lorien Pratt is an entrepreneur, machine learning pioneer, and coder. The inventor of the fields of machine learning inductive transfer and

The Mathematics of Intelligence

Professor Goodhill’s research aims to discover the computational rules underlying brain development and function. He originally trained in the UK in maths, physics and artificial intelligence, and then spent 10 years researching in the USA, including 8 as a professor of neuroscience at Georgetown University. He moved to the University of Queensland in 2005, where he holds a joint appointment between the Queensland Brain Institute and School of Mathematics and

The Secret of Becoming Mentally Strong

Everyone has the ability to build mental strength, but most people don’t know how. We spend a lot of time talking about physical strength and physical health, but much less time on mental strength and mental health. We can choose to perform exercises that will help us learn to regulate our thoughts, manage our emotions, and behave productively despite our circumstances – the 3 basic factors of mental strength. No

Artificial Intelligence & The Future of Education Systems

Dr. Bernhard Schindlholzer explores the challenges that this technological approach poses to our economy and, furthermore, how they could be addressed by questioning established norms of our education systems. Dr. Bernhard Schindlholzer is a technology manager working on Machine Learning and E-commerce. In this talk he gave at TEDx FHKufstein, Bernhard Schindlholzer contemplated the implications of ephemeralization – the ability of technological advancement to do “more and more with less

Why Fasting Bolsters Brain Power

Why fasting bolsters brain power: Mark Mattson at TEDxJohnsHopkinsUniversity Mark Mattson and his team have published several papers that discuss how fasting twice a week could significantly lower the risk of developing both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. When you take a look at caloric restriction studies, many of them show a prolonged lifespan as well as an increased ability to fight chronic disease. It’s interesting because fasting and caloric restriction

Bridging the Gap Between Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience

AI and neuroscience can inform one another, if we can continue to bridge their current gap. By increasing the synergy between artificial intelligence and neuroscience, a bootstrapping process will occur: more neuroscience research will inform better AI, and better AI will give neuroscientists the tools to make more discoveries and interpret them. Let’s encourage collaboration, throughout academia and industry. Who is Alex Lavin? Alex Lavin is a researcher at the

New bionics let us dance, climb and run

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature’s own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that’s both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are?

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as “smart” as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: “Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we’re building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will

Microsoft software engineer Marianna Budnikova found out the reason why AI is female

A few weeks ago, There was an article written by Monica Nickelsburg titled “Why is Artificial Intelligence Female” on our website. According to the article, there were different causes that Artificial Intelligence is female. “In terms of how we are trained to relate to particular genders, there’s a kind of comfort that is associated with female voices, So, more warm, more welcoming, more nurturing, all those associations that are connected
