Demis Hassabis: The World’s 100 Most Influential People

How Demis Hassabis is revolutionizing artificial intelligence #TIME100

  • At least a decade ahead of expectations, Demis Hassabis and his team at DeepMind created AlphaGo, a software program that defeated Lee Sedol, one of the world’s best players, at the complex game of Go.
  • Demis is one of the leading scientists creating AI breakthroughs, with three Nature papers in the past two years.
  • Of equal importance, however, Demis is deeply committed to keeping AI safe.
  • Demis has been a leader in establishing ethical guidelines to keep AI accountable.
  • If we achieve this vision, it’s likely Demis will have played a large part.

Robots Are Making Roads Safer and Less Congested in Africa

In case you missed it the first time, here it is again:

  • Robots Are Making Roads Safer and Less Congested in Africa
  • The robot traffic cops work around the clock, are beloved by locals, and they don’t accept bribes.
  • Created by Thérèse Izay Kirongozi, a Kinshasa engineer, the robots have rotating chests that enable them to do the job of four traffic lights.
  • There is already talk of bringing robot cops to other African intersections.
  • When I contemplate the future impact of artificial intelligence on humanity, African roads come to mind.

These robot traffic cops work around the clock, are beloved by locals, and they don’t accept bribes. By Nnedi Okorafor.

How Bayesian Inference Works: Tutorial

How Bayesian Inference Works (Tutorial)  #abdsc #DataScience #MachineLearning

  • Bayesian inference is a way to get sharper predictions from your data.
  • In brief, Bayesian inference lets you draw stronger conclusions from your data by folding in what you already know about the answer.
  • How Bayesian Inference Works: Tutorial
  • It’s particularly useful when you don’t have as much data as you would like and want to juice every last bit of predictive strength from it.
  • Bayesian inference is based on the ideas of Thomas Bayes, a nonconformist Presbyterian minister in London about 300 years ago.
