AlphaGo - The Movie | Full Documentary
With more board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, the ancient Chinese game of Go has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9, 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined The DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history. Directed by Greg Kohs and with an original score by Academy Award nominee Hauschka, AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the halls of Oxford, through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of DeepMind in London, and ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What can it teach us about humanity?
Why AI is Harder Than We Think
Since its beginning in the 1950s, the field of artificial intelligence has cycled several times between periods of optimistic predictions and massive investment ("AI spring") and periods of disappointment, loss of confidence, and reduced funding ("AI winter"). Even with today's seemingly fast pace of AI breakthroughs, the development of long-promised technologies such as self-driving cars,...
Andrew Ng X-Rays the AI Hype
“Those of us in machine learning are really good at doing well on a test set,” says machine learning pioneer Andrew Ng, “but unfortunately deploying a system takes more than doing well on a test set.” Speaking via Zoom in a Q&A session hosted by DeepLearning.AI and Stanford HAI, Ng was responding to a question about why machine learning models trained to make medical decisions that perform at...
European Union regulating AI - allowing the use of deepfakes
After the success of the GDPR, Europe is doubling down on setting the standards in Artificial Intelligence. It should be clear to everyone, especially after a version of the “REGULATION ON A EUROPEAN APPROACH FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE” project leaked. While it contains interesting AI governance ideas, I will withhold further
