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

Artificial Intelligence and the Future

In his talk, Andre is explaining the current and future impacts of Artificial Intelligence on industry, science, and how it will benefit and accelerate human progress. With almost 20 years of business experience, André has a track record of success with multiple multi-million dollar ventures in multiple industries that have spanned the continent. His latest company works in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and has created a one-of-a-kind neural

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

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
