Autonomous weapons, running robots, Open AI and more

Here’s some highlights of AI reading, watching, listening I’ve been doing over the past few weeks.

A couple of videos from the MIT AGI series. First, Richard Moyes, co-Founder and Managing Director, Article36 on autonomous weapons and the efforts he and others are doing to reduce their impact.

The second is Ilya Sutskeve, co-founder of open AI, on neural networks, deep reinforcement learning, meta learning and self play. He seems pretty convinced that that it is a matter of when, not if, we will get machines with human level intelligence.

Judea Pearl, who proposed  that Baysian networks could be used to reason probabilistically, laments AI can’t compute cause and effect and summarises Deep Learning as simply curve fitting.

After reading a post about mask R-CNN being used on the footage of Ronaldo’s recent bicycle kick goal I took a look at the description of the code here.

And of course the video of the running, jumping robot from Boston Dynamics. If you want to find out a little bit more about the company I recommend the lecture from their CEO Marc Raibert below.
