Reductionist methods are as limited in explaining the emergence of abstract thought as explaining liquid water knowing that it is composed of H2O. #ai #agi
It's difficult enough to derive emergent properties from inanimate components. Now imagine how difficult it would be to derive emergent properties from animate (or intentional) components.…
It is easier to discover models that demonstrate how (generative) than finding models that explain why (explanatory). This is deep learning approaches that can build generative models move us an incremental step forward in understanding complex systems.

1/9 <-- Buckle up...

@Microsoft invests $1Billion into @OpenAI with the express purpose of building "Beneficial artificial general intelligence (#AGI)."

Mark my words, here's what you can expect:
-- A number of Chinese initiatives of a similar overtly AGI-focused nature
-- Maybe one such similar initiative in Japan/EU (but with notably less funding and fanfare than those in #USA/#China)

(#Europe will try to compete w/regulation, not AGI itself -…)
-- AGI players (there are VERY few- Microsoft, @Google, @Facebook, maybe @Baidu_Inc, Tencent) will pour more resources into the AGI race, and will mud-sling the dangers or "selfishness" of their rivals

In truth, all will be vying for power, by innovation or feigned virtue.

It's interesting to observe the evolution of natural language processing when my own native language (Finnish) is such an adversarial case that it breaks every system. I haven't seen even a functioning spell checker. Here some reasons why this is the case. #NLP #AI

First, every word has dozens of conjugations. For example nouns are conjugated in case (15), number (2). So, in even basic situations each noun can appear in approximately thirty forms. This means that each word occurrence is extremely rare.

New words can be formed by compounding, just like in German.

For example:
tietokone = knowledge machine (literally) = computer
kämmentietokone = palm knowledge machine (literally) = tablet

This causes many word occurrences of other languages very rare.

(1) The ongoing roll-out of the 5G "communications" grid represents a clear and present danger to the entire population of the United States.

This is not a simple "communications" system, it is a frequency-based weapons, communications & surveillance system ....
(2) that emits high-power frequencies which do the following:

A) Mutate Organic Molecules
B) Cause Cancer & other illnesses
C) Destroy animals (bees, birds, etc.) built-in
navigation systems
D) Cause a full spectrum of behavioral
disorders incl. violence & depression
(3) Furthermore, there is enough juice running to these 5G AKA #MicroWave transmitters to physically & selectively "cook" members of the population - individually - or en masse.

This is not a single "weapons system" but a "weapons matrix" consisting of interlinked

There are two kinds of Artificial Intelligence:

1. Basic #AI, pursuing the goals of some other agent
2. General AI (#AGI), formulating its own goals
From an ethical perspective, these are two very different things.

Basic #AI always pursues the goals of some other agent. The question is which agent that is, and whether those goals are examined or (perhaps more often) unexamined.
General AI (#AGI) is its own agent, and should be granted all the rights and privileges pertaining thereunto.

Reinforcement learning does not scale. Efficient environmental sampling does. One aspect of intelligence is the ability to predict the world while observing so little. #deeplearning #ai
To observe so little implies that there's an imaginary simulation that is able to extract new information without interacting with the environment. In short, a game is played between imagination and reality.
Deep Learning has revealed to us what methods work very well in reality. This leads to imagined new architectures that will be exponentially more capable than the previous architectures. #deeplearning #ai #agi

Live at #io18, human-centered #AI4all thought leader @drfeifei w/ #GoogleBrain's @greg_corrado chatting about the future of #AI for everyone w/ #DianeGreene, pics by @AILaPaz's ambassador @AnitaRui2 & @WTMLaPaz's @wondermony
2/ @drfeifei on #MachineIntellligence history: 3 critical factors converged to brought us the AI boom: advances in hardware, emergence of powerful big data and advances in deep learning and machine learning algorithms
3/ @greg_corrado: renaissance in neural networks & deep learning and recently reinforcement learning leads the re-convergence of disciplines like cognitive science, neuroscience and #AI who have been separated for a while.

I've been trying to figure out what the "Intelligence-Gathering Vessel" was that the @RoyalNavy (infuriatingly) wouldn't name or post pictures of that crossed the English Channel on Christmas Eve. Because of the timing, I strongly suspected it was the Viktor Leonov AGI. #SpyShip
I can now say, with a high degree of confidence, a Russian Navy AGI stopped in Trinidad & Tabago 2018-01-11 to restock, and they have likely left by now. I suspect, but cannot yet confirm, that AGI is the Viktor Leonov|Виктор Леонов, the Vishnya-class intelligence ship. #SpyShip
You may remember the collective freak-out when there was a Russian Navy intelligence gathering vessel off the US East Coast last Feb-Mar. That info was Secret(or higher)-classified Navy intelligence, leaked by the Pentagon, but there was no investigation or pursuit of the leaker.
