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.

I’ll post a link to the talk once it’s up, here’s an article in the mean time:

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.

Why Is Deep Learning Hot Right Now?

Deep learning is the fastest-growing field in artificial intelligence (AI), helping computers make sense of infinite amounts of data in the form of images, sound, and text. Using multiple levels of neural networks, computers now have the capacity to see, learn, and react to complex situations as well or better than humans. Today’s deep learning solutions rely almost exclusively on NVIDIA GPU-accelerated computing to train and speed up challenging applications such as image, handwriting, and voice identification.
