artificial intelligence - reflection podcast #2

May 6, 2018

In this reflection podcast, László and I are having a conversation on artificial intelligence (AI). In the beginning, we refer to Chris Paine’s Film on AI. A few quotes from that film:

* Google has 10 Million servers now and is working on an AI platform of 100 Mio servers. Tim Urban: “I’m not even sure that Google knows what it’s becoming."

* David Ferrucci: “In 3-5 years we’ll build a system that learns how to build understanding.”

* Elon Musk:” We’re rapidly moving towards digital superintelligence that far exceeds any human.” [..] ”It’s incredibly important that AI is not the other; it must be us.”
