Learning through human feedback

Learning through human feedback  #DeepLearning #AI #ArtificialIntelligence

  • That is why DeepMind co-founded initiatives like the Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society and why we have a team dedicated to technical AI Safety.
  • Research in this field needs to be open and collaborative to ensure that best practices are adopted as widely as possible, which is why we are also collaborating with OpenAI on research in technical AI Safety.
  • One of the central questions in this field is how we allow humans to tell a system what we want it to do and – importantly – what we don’t want it to do.
  • This is increasingly important as the problems we tackle with machine learning grow more complex and are applied in the real world.
  • The first results from our collaboration demonstrate one method to address this, by allowing humans with no technical experience to teach a reinforcement learning (RL) system – an AI that learns by trial and error – a complex goal.

A central question in technical AI safety is how to tell an algorithm what we want it to do. Working with OpenAI, we demonstrate a novel system that allows a human with no technical experience to teach an AI how to perform a complex task, such as manipulating a simulated robotic arm.

March Madness: A Swarm Intelligence Is Predicting the Future

#MarchMadness: A Swarm Intelligence Is Predicting the Future   #AI #IBMInterConnnect

  • When Unanimous AI developed UNU in 2015, the goal was to create artificial intelligence (AI) systems that “keep people in the loop,” amplifying human intelligence instead of replacing it.
  • Unanimous AI’s March Madness bracket was able to beat all but three percent of ESPN brackets across the country on the first day of the tournament.
  • The technology makes use of the collective intelligence of people — combining “knowledge, insights, and intuitions,” as Unanimous AI puts it — to develop a kind of artificial intelligence that’s inherently human.
  • As Unanimous AI explains, “We empower people to act as ‘data processors’ that come together online and form an intelligent system, connected by AI algorithms.
  • One day, perhaps we’ll be able to combine the intelligence of Watson with that of a swarm of medical professionals to improve healthcare, or combine the insights of an investment-making AI with a swarm of finance experts.

The collective intelligence is killing it on ESPN.

6 areas of AI and Machine Learning to watch closely

#ICYMI 6 areas of #AI and #MachineLearning to watch closely

  • Those who are able to train faster and deploy AI models that are computationally and energy efficient are at a significant advantage.
  • Some have rebranded AI as “cognitive computing” or “machine intelligence”, while others incorrectly interchange AI with “machine learning”.
  • If we want AI systems to solve tasks where training data is particularly challenging, costly, sensitive, or time-consuming to procure, it’s important to develop models that can learn optimal solutions from less examples (i.e. one or zero-shot learning).
  • Deep learning models are notable for requiring enormous amounts of training data to reach state-of-the-art performance.
  • Without large scale training data, deep learning models won’t converge on their optimal settings and won’t perform well on complex tasks such as speech recognition or machine translation.


Artificial Intelligence is a generic term and many fields of science overlaps when comes to make an AI application. Here is an explanation of AI and its 6 major areas to be focused, going forward.

AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software

#AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software

  • XNOR.ai frees AI from the prison of the supercomputer
  • AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software
  • Posted 22 hours ago by Darrell Etherington ( @etherington )
  • MIT Media Lab is open-sourcing its own efforts to create learning software from other machine learning programs, and this should help with industry-wide efforts to make this a practical way to create new software.
  • Kristen Stewart co-authored a paper on style transfer and the AI community lost its mind

Who programs the programmers? Soon enough, it might not be people behind the development of advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence tech, but..

7 AI trends to watch in 2017

Seven Artificial Intelligence trends to watch in 2017 - #AI

  • A recent Forrester survey of business and technology professionals found that 58% of them are researching AI, but only 12% are using AI systems.
  • Concerns about AI stealing jobs are nothing new but we anticipate deeper, more nuanced conversations on what AI will mean economically.
  • Expect to hear (a little) less about malevolent AI taking over the world and more about the economic impacts of AI.
  • Most AI systems are black boxes -and immensely complex.
  • Watch highlights covering artificial intelligence, machine learning, intelligence engineering, and more.

From tools, to research, to ethics, Ben Lorica looks at what’s in store for artificial intelligence in 2017.

Elon Musk and Google Want You to Make Their Artificial Intelligence Smarter

  • Google’s DeepMind , the AI system that famously defeated the world champion of the board game Go earlier this year, and OpenAI , an AI collaboration from Elon Musk and others, are making their software platforms available to researchers, developers, and anyone else who wants to use them.
  • Elon Musk and Google Want You to Make Their Artificial Intelligence Smarter
  • Open sourcing an AI system allows it to access troves of new learning data, so the more people who use it, the stronger it becomes.
  • Developers could conceivably use these platforms to make the AI in their own games and apps smarter.
  • The two platforms both use deep learning, a form of machine learning that allows AI systems to grow smarter.

Musk’s OpenAI and Google’s DeepMind are opening their platforms to the public.
