Jordan Peterson at TEDx (Redefining Reality)

This presentation is not exactly a transhumanist or technological exposition, however I think it touches on something valuable to examine as we move forth into the 4th industrial revolution or, if you prefer the terminology, the technological singularity.  In the video, Jordan Peterson talks about the necessity of maintaining a balance between order and chaos and the dangers of moving too far to either extreme.  This philosophy of balancing opposites is something I share because destruction tends to lay at the end of extremes, whether it be politically, religiously, and technologically, just to name a few.  I believe the advancement of in fields such as technology and AI are inevitable and seeking to halt progress due to fear is futile.  I urge the replacement of fear with caution because what is fear but a destructive extreme of caution?  We need to move forward with caution and a balance of intelligence and compassion or the future we create will likely be one we do not want.  I hope you enjoy this little philosophical excursion from specific technologies usually focused on here at Dawn of Giants.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Robotics and the 4th Industrial Revolution

This video discusses the future of robotics and the 4th industrial revolution.  The video includes a brief history of robotics, an overview of the present state of the art, and speculation on robotics of the future with primary focus on robotics in the workforce.  Artificial intelligence is discussed along with what advancing AI and robotics will mean for both high and low skilled workers respectively.

AI Births New AI

This short video from producer Dagogo Altraide (found on the the ColdFusion YouTube channel) discusses a Google Brain AI (artificial intelligence) which created it’s own AI offspring that “performs better than anything else in it’s feild” according to the video (this particular field is computer vision).  Google uses an approach called automatic machine learning (or AutoML) to recursively generate new architectures and give feedback to the controller neural net.  The “parent” neural net is called AutoML and the “child” neural net is called NASNet.  NASNet is a real time image recognition AI.  NASNet performed with more accuracy and efficiency than any AI of it’s kind created by humans.

Google’s DeepMind AI

This video explain’s Google’s DeepMind AI.  The goal of the DeepMind project is to develop general purpose algorithms which, along with the development of artificial intelligence, will teach us more about the human brain.  Part of the DeepMind research was a project called AlphGo which beat Go world champion Lee Sedol in 2015.  Due to the intuitive nature of the game, it was not expected that an AI would succeed in beating a Go champion for at least another decade.  DeepMind uses a type of machine learning called deep reinforcement learning.  Machine learning is not to be confused with expert systems.  Expert systems work within predefined (pre-programmed) parameters whereas machine learning relies upon pattern recognition algorithms.

Ben Goertzel – Beginnings [on Artificial Intelligence – Thanks to Adam A. Ford for this video.]

In this video, Ben Goertzel talks a little about how he got into AGI research and about the research, itself.  I first heard of Ben Goertzel about four years ago, right when I was first studying computer science and considering a career in AI programming.  At the time, I was trying to imagine how you would build an emotionally intelligent machine.  I really enjoyed hearing some of his ideas at the time and still do.  Also at the time, I was listening to a lot of Tony Robbins so you could imagine, I came up with some pretty interesting theories on artificial intelligence and empathetic machines.  Maybe if I get enough requests I’ll write a special post on some of those ideas.  You just let me know if you’re interested.
