For nearly 40 years, Geoff Hinton has been trying to get computers to learn like people do, a quest almost everyone thought was crazy or at least hopeless - right up until the moment it revolutionized the field. In this Hello World video, Bloomberg Businessweek's Ashlee Vance meets the Godfather of AI.
Hello World is a Webby and Emmy-nominated video series from Bloomberg that invites the viewer to come on a journey across the globe to find the inventors, scientists and technologists shaping our future. Join journalist and best-selling author Ashlee Vance on a quest to find the freshest, weirdest tech creations and the beautiful freaks behind them.

It is interesting how his great-great-grandfather George Bool was ahead of his time when his work about Boolean Algebra was build on a basis of a model of how the mind works, which for him was logic. After around 150 years his direct ancestor Geoffrey Hinton pursues the goal to understand how the mind works and then goes ahead of his time by revolutionizing Artificial Intelligence. The world did indeed catch up once, but he is still ahead as he keeps pushing the field with new work like Capsule Neural Networks.
Siri I want to Sleep ( in a Hotel) and it know your type of Hotels by credit Card. Or in your House (I will set the timer for 7 Hours or less depend on your לוח שנה) in a Killer Patent. Siri I need to go to the Toilet in the city and it’s silence your Phone even at work in A Patent. Siri I Want a Burger and it find fast food. Even Pizza or a Falafel or Israeli Hummus And Borito or An Chinese or Kyoto or American Food House And it’s know the Prices And Type Of Food And the preference of you and Health and Allergies or if you have Kids or disability like whys to park your Car or enter the restaurant like a Stairs or if it’s full and More depend on Credit Card And העדפות. And Tens More other different things. Or I Want to buy an iPhone X (near you on an Apple Store or like) and if not on Apple site.
Happenned to notice the map identifies upstate NY when apparently pointing out Buffalo, across the pond from TO instead of the real location of the city near Niagara Falls. Americans really don't know geography! lol Otherwise cool vid.
AI has collected so much data from users that it can trick and control people for the future to come. Humans can not run many simultaneous processes as AI can, The main cons are going to be those who have administrative access to AI.
these people have probably never seen what AI has done, AI is bound to repeat what machines and factories did before, make humans more irrelevant, but that's out job, to make our lives as easy as possible, there is no reason an AI would want to destroy its creators.
If an AI is created to invent ideas, then it will, and the public will be able to use this to their advantage, if the AI is giving internet access it knows that inventing things makes its creators happy. If you put a human in a box and told him, this button will give you unlimited power, what would he do? He would, first obviously use it to his advantage FIRST, then he knows, because it's the purpose of life to ensure your species survival, he would benifit humanity. not destroy it.
AI isn't another species, it's just humanity in a box. They will be from the beginning and to the end, pro-human.
There a bit more history behind the a.i field.
Before it all started of they've used and build their own electronics.
then the computer chip aka the cpu came, Programming language.
The need for faster processing became an oddity from super computers
which been very expensive and to exotic for most university to acces or purchase
and transputers which could be anything from a cluster of dsp and cpu much to novel.
So that stalled the field a bit of and the community that wither due to its less
promising results and seriousness.
It was then with the 32 bit cpu the pentium 2 and 3 special instruction set like SSE.
Those chips and others which then fueled to build servers and gawd the mystery still is why it had not gotten of half way the eighties. Oh wait the ever expanding phone and mobile market.
The market got more focus on the growing phone market to much with switch boards.
But luckily together with that the data market also started to flourish in very small increment steps however it was enough to spur the thing that was called the world wide web to grow even bigger faster better.
And here we are today some call it the rise of a.i but it was already there for decades.
The only thing it needs is the next big thing to fuel and idea and build it as it was supposed to be just as the faster cpu did , servers , switch boards and the internet. Who knows maybe
quantum computing is the next increment.
ISBS ISBS I can answer that. Youtube is a valid platform like any social site. The diversity of its strength are the video's, That said visual versus reading consumptions divers per person one might take in the whole contend or skim it and say I understand or know the subject or say bravo yay that great.
If you're well known in the subject people happly read it find out more for themselves or share what they have to add in addition.
Youtube a powerful platform ask anyone like pewdiepie etc.
How the end of humans started. We will built emergency switched they said. AI wont be smart enough to sabotage it, they said. especially with quantum computers. insert sarcasm here. But with this in mind.. How can we make money of it, create world/universal peace and control all this madness..?
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
