The advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in this year alone are quite astounding. Late 2016 Google and Microsoft opened up access to their artificial intelligence engines. This year we’ve found out that Google Translate has its own internal, non-human, language structure; Facebook is playing with teaching AIs to negotiate with each other, and the mainstream media seems to finally have gotten a grasp on how revolutionary AI is going to be with respect to jobs and societal cohesion.
But what if you’re a newbie to it all? Come along to my talk and I’ll give you a broad overview of convergence machines, filters etc along with a brief overview of what has happened this year in the fields.
