Summary: Things are getting repetitious and that can be boring. Still, looking at lessons from the 90s it’s clear there are at least one or two decades of important economic advances that will based on our current AI/ML. Then some thoughts on where that next really huge breakthrough will come from that will return our initial excitement.

Summary: The ability to train large scale CNNs directly on your cell phone without sending the data round trip to the cloud is the key to next gen AI applications like real time computer vision and safe self-driving cars. Problem is our current GPU AI chips won’t get us there. But neuromorphic chips look like they will.

Summary: Real Time Computer Vision (RTCV) that requires processing video DNNs at the edge is likely to be the next killer app that powers a renewed love affair with our mobile devices. The problem is that current GPUs won’t cut it and we have to wait once again for the hardware to catch up.
Summary: There’s a three way technology race to bring faster, easier, cheaper, and smarter AI. High Performance Computing is available today but so are new commercial versions of actual Quantum computers and Neuromorphic Spiking Neural Nets. These two new entrants are going to revolutionize AI and deep learning starting now.Continue
Summary: We are approaching a time when we need to be concerned that our AI robots may indeed harm us. The rapid increase in the conversation about what ethics should apply to AI is appropriate but needs to be focused on the real threats, not just the wild imaginings of the popular press. Here are some data points to help you in thinking about this, what our concerns should be today, and what our concerns should be in the future.

Summary: Just where are we in the Age of AI, where are we going, and what happens when we get there?
When things are changing fast, sometimes it’s necessary to take a step back and see where you are. It’s very easy to get caught up in the excitement over the details. The individual data science technologies that underlie AI are all moving forward on different paths at different speeds, but all of those speeds are fast. So before you change careers or…Continue
Summary: Whether you are a startup person or data science-minded executive in a larger organization what logic can you apply to spot the most compelling opportunities for AI in your organization.

Summary: Looking beyond today’s commercial applications of AI, where and how far will we progress toward an Artificial Intelligence with truly human-like reasoning and capability? This is about the pursuit of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).
There is no question that we’re making a lot of progress in artificial intelligence (AI). So much so that we are rapidly approaching or have already arrived at a plateau in development where more effort is…Continue
