I was intrigued by this article in Techcrunch this morning: Forget Apps, Now The Bots Take Over A similar paradigm is emerging from IoT devices. The complexity of so many apps and so many devices is becoming mind-boggling. In order to deal with it I have started to use a number of automations to […]Read More Forget the Apps, Now the bots take over… Techcrunch
How do current CNN compare to the scale of the human brain? We know that the human brain consists of a 21 billion neurons and somewhere between 1 trillion and 1000 trillion dendrite connections. The closest species is an Elephant which has half as many neurons as a human brain. We can therefore postulate that […]Read More Deep Learning Part 3 – Why CNN and DBN are far way from human intelligence
2010 Convolutional Neural Nets Convolutional Neural Nets operate on raw data from senses using some basic numerical techniques which aren’t that hard to understand. It is possible these same techniques are employed in our brain. Therefore the concern is that if these CNN have a similar ability to abstract things as a human brain does […]Read More Is Deep Learning going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon? – part 2, CNN and DBN explained
Does a significant advance like the recent advances in AI presage a massive new potentially dangerous robotic world? Elon Musk Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and others. have stated that recent advances in AI, specifically around CNN (Convoluted Neural Nets) also called Deep Learning has the potential to finally represent real AI. This is exciting and worrisome […]Read More Is Deep Learning AI going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon – the setup?
This is a continuation of the series on the Disruptive Megatrends for 2015 Series 12. Perceptive APIs / Cognitive Technologies / DeepAI – smart technologies become more and more important to differentiate I strongly believe rapid adoption of Deep Learning technologies and more adoption of various AI sub-disciplines will show dramatic growth in 2015. […]Read More Breakout MegaTrends that will explode in 2015, Continuation Perceptive APIs, Cognitive Technologies, Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Networks
The AI side of the equation I started my career studying Artificial Intelligence at MIT. Back then the researchers thought that we would have computers that were smarter than humans in short order. What I discovered after observing what the AI people had done was hardly anything close to “intelligence.” Marvin Minsky called the […]Read More Artificial Intelligence, The Brain as Quantum Computer – Talk about Disruptive
