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

Top 10 TED Talks of 2016

Sam Harris Can we build AI without losing control over it? Scared of superintelligent AI? You should be, says neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris — and not just in some theoretical way. We’re going to build superhuman machines, says Harris, but we haven’t yet grappled with the problems associated with creating something that may treat us the way we treat ants. Jennifer Kahn Gene editing can now change an entire

An Amusing Way to Teach Kids about Computers

Computer code is the next universal language, and its syntax will be limited only by the imaginations of the next generation of programmers. Linda Liukas is helping to educate problem-solving kids, encouraging them to see computers not as mechanical, boring and complicated but as colorful, expressive machines meant to be tinkered with. In this talk, she invites us to imagine a world where the Ada Lovelaces of tomorrow grow up

The revolution of Deep Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is so hot right now. It’s what everyone is talking about. Because it’s going to change the world soon.  Joscha Bach says “We are, right now, in the middle of a revolution known as “the revolution of Deep Learning.” Computer models allow us to understand minds as causal systems, and to test these models by building systems that begin to make sense of the world on their own.

Brain & Consciousness

John Searle one of the world’s great philosophers of mind and language, has spent fifty years stimulating thinking around the world. What he says about consciousness as a biological phenomenon will surprise you!  “Consciousness is a curiously neglected subject, both in our scientific and our philosophical culture. it is the most important aspect of our lives for a very simple, logical reason, namely, it’s a necessary condition on anything being important in our lives
