The History and Future of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)

The last five years have witnessed a dramatic resurgence of excitement in the goal of creating intelligent machines.

Technology companies are now investing billions of dollars in this field, new research laboratories are springing up around the globe, and competition for talent has become intense. In this Discourse Chris Bishop describes some of the recent technology breakthroughs which underpin this enthusiasm, and explores some of the many exciting opportunities which artificial intelligence offers.

Chris Bishop is the Laboratory Director at Microsoft Research Cambridge and is a professor of computer science at the University of Edinburgh. He has extensive expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Intro – Training a neural network to play a game with TensorFlow and Open AI

This tutorial mini series is focused on training a neural network to play the Open AI environment called CartPole.

 
The idea of CartPole is that there is a pole standing up on top of a cart. The goal is to balance this pole by wiggling/moving the cart from side to side to keep the pole balanced upright.

How to Prevent an AI Apocalypse

I traveled to Amsterdam for a week to speak at The Next Web Conference on AI Safety. While roaming the streets of the city, I decided to take some shots and formulate a video on the same topic for you guys. In the battle of good vs evil, it’s up to our community to ensure good wins. I’ll resume the coding videos next week when I get back to San Francisco.

How to Make an Evolutionary Tetris AI

Let’s use an evolutionary algorithm to improve a Tetris AI! We’ll be coding this in Javascript (gasp) because I want to try something different. Through the process of selection, crossover, and mutation our AI will eventually be able to reach the high score of 500 in record time.

How to Generate Images – Intro to Deep Learning

We’re going to build a variational autoencoder capable of generating novel images after being trained on a collection of images. We’ll be using handwritten digit images as training data. Then we’ll both generate new digits and plot out the learned embeddings. And I introduce Bayesian theory for the first time in this series 🙂

2 things
-The embedding visualization at the end would be more spread out if i trained it for more epochs (50 is recommended) but i just used 5.
-The code in the video doesn’t fully implement the reparameterization trick (to save space) but check the GitHub repo for details on that.

How to Use Tensorboard (LIVE)

We’re going to learn how the visualizer that comes with Tensorflow works in this live stream. We’ll go through a bunch of different features and test out its functionality both programmatically and visually.

Amazon Echo having a conversation with Google Home

Let your Amazon Echo (Alexa) have a conversation with Google Home!

For those who are interested in the technical aspects:

By saying ‘Echo, start small talk”, a custom app for the Echo (called ‘skill’) is invoked and the Echo starts the conversation. On Google Home, there isn’t running any custom app at any time.

Every time the Echo asks Google Home a question, it waits for its answer and (when it asks for the time) later processes the input.

After the last command has been spoken by the Echo, the skill stops. When Google Home responds with ‘Echo, you are great!’, the base functionality of Amazon Echo gets invoked (not a custom skill).

The skill is not published.

Here’s another video demonstrating some different functionality – shot in the dark:
