Being human in the age of artificial intelligence

  • Calling itself The Future of Life Institute, its founders included Jaan Tallinn – who helped create Skype – and a physicist from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • That physicist was Professor Max Tegmark.
  • With a mission to help safeguard life and develop optimistic visions of the future, the Institute has focused largely on Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • Of particular concern is the potential for AI to leapfrog humans and achieve so-called “superintelligence” – something discussed in depth in Tegmark’s latest book Life 3.0.
  • This week Ian Sample asks the physicist and author what would happen if we did manage to create superintelligent AI?

Ian Sample speaks with Prof Max Tegmark about the advance of AI, the future of life on Earth, and what happens if and when a ‘superintelligence’ arrives

    In 2016 Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum, wrote: “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.”

  • This fourth Industrial Revolution, he said, will fuse the physical, digital and biological worlds, and affect all corners of society – even challenging ideas of what it means to be human.
  • Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson of the the Massachusetts Institute of Technology think not.
  • And in their latest book Machine, Platform, Crowd, they tell us why.
  • Joining Ian Sample in the studio, Andrew and Erik lay out their blueprint for the future of the workplace, including the role big data will play, how some processes involving decision-making could be automated, and how minds and machines can come together to cancel out each other’s errors.

Ian Sample sits down with Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson to discuss the future of the workplace and the role artificial intelligence will play

Book: Machine Learning Algorithms From Scratch

Book: #MachineLearning Algorithms From Scratch

  • From First Principles With Pure Python and

    Use them on Real-World Datasets

    You must understand algorithms to get good at machine learning.

  • In this mega Ebook written in the friendly Machine Learning Mastery style that you’re used to, finally cut through the math and learn exactly how machine learning algorithms work.
  • I’ve written books on algorithms, won and ranked in the top 10% in machine learning competitions, consulted for startups and spent a long time working on systems for forecasting tropical cyclones.
  • (yes I have written tons of code that runs operationally)

    I get a lot of satisfaction helping developers get started and get really good at machine learning.

  • I teach an unconventional top-down and results-first approach to machine learning where we start by working through tutorials and problems, then later wade into theory as we need it.

Concise Visual Summary of Deep Learning Architectures

Concise Visual Summary of #DeepLearning Architectures #abdsc

  • With new neural network architectures popping up every now and then, it’s hard to keep track of them all.
  • RNNs sometimes refer to recursive neural networks, but most of the time they refer to recurrent neural networks.
  • That’s not the end of it though, in many places you’ll find RNN used as placeholder for any recurrent architecture, including LSTMs, GRUs and even the bidirectional variants.
  • Many abbreviations also vary in the amount of “N”s to add at the end, because you could call it a convolutional neural network but also simply a convolutional network (resulting in CNN or CN).
  • Composing a complete list is practically impossible, as new architectures are invented all the time.
