It is a two-day event.
Gideon Lichfield, Editor in Chief, MIT Technology Review, will be providing 15 minutes of opening remarks.
AI Created Text and Pictures that Seem Real
Gideon is reviewing the basics of AI. Supervised versus unsupervised learning
— he talked about the new software for unsupervised (no human help) generating new text. OpenAI generated a new story segment for the Lord of the Rings.
–There was AI that can identify pictures of cats and other objects. New AI can also generate new pictures of cats and new pictures of human faces that cannot be determined to be faked or created.
–Google Assistant is live and the generated speech patterns seem natural
–AI controlled robotic hands are now as dexterous as human hands.
A big promise for AI is for medical care.
AI is as good as or better than doctors for reading X-rays and medical images.
There will then be a State of AI set of talks by three speakers.
