Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here today; it's not just the future of technology. It is also not just found in toy robots or Hollywood sci-fi movies. It's embedded in the fabric of your everyday life. Despite AI's promise, certain thinkers are deeply concerned about a time when machines might become fully sentient, rational agents--beings with emotions, consciousness, and self-awareness. "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race," Stephen Hawking told the BBC in 2014.
Toby discusses his early dreams of building thinking machines inspired by science fiction - and covers AI Ethics and current to near term applicability in intelligent systems. Toby Walsh is a leading researcher in Artificial Intelligence. He was recently named in the inaugural Knowledge Nation 100, the one hundred "rock stars" of Australia's digital revolution. He is Guest Professor at TU Berlin, Scientia Professor of Artificial Intelligence at UNSW and leads the Algorithmic Decision Theory group at Data61, Australia's Centre of Excellence for ICT Research. He has been elected a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, and has won the prestigious Humboldt research award as well as the 2016 NSW Premier's Prize for Excellence in Engineering and ICT.
This is a clip from a conversation with Yann LeCun on the Artificial Intelligence podcast. You can watch the full conversation here: http://bit.ly/2NJiCov If you enjoy these, consider subscribing, sharing, and commenting below. Yann LeCun is one of the fathers of deep learning, the recent revolution in AI that has captivated the world with the possibility of what machines can learn from data. He is a professor at New York University, a Vice President & Chief AI Scientist at Facebook, co-recipient of the Turing Award for his work on deep learning.
Intelligent machines are no longer science fiction and experts seem divided as to whether artificial intelligence should be feared or welcomed. In this video I explore a broad range AI research while attempting to envision a future where man and machine can coexist. Both paragraphs at 5:50 were written by an AI.
Yann LeCun is one of the fathers of deep learning, the recent revolution in AI that has captivated the world with the possibility of what machines can learn from data. He is a professor at New York University, a Vice President & Chief AI Scientist at Facebook, co-recipient of the Turing Award for his work on deep learning. He is probably best known as the founding father of convolutional neural networks, in particular their early application to optical character recognition.
