The fourth Industrial Revolution: what is means, how to respond.  14 Jan 2016 by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive chairman, world economic forum

“n the end, it all comes down to people and values. We need to shape a future that works for all of us by putting people first and empowering them. In its most pessimistic, dehumanized form, the Fourth Industrial Revolution may indeed have the potential to “robotize” humanity and thus to deprive us of our heart and soul. But as a complement to the best parts of human nature—creativity, empathy, stewardship—it can also lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a shared sense of destiny. It is incumbent on us all to make sure the latter prevails.” A list of artificial intelligence tools that you can use today – for personal use by Liam Hanel

Is Artificial Intelligence Permanently Inscrutable?

This article talks about model correctness versus interpretability, which is a very important “higher-level” concept.

AI has grown up and left home

Alan Turing

AI: “Intelligence: The ability to learn and solve problems” – Webster’s dictionary

“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software” – WikiPedia

“The science and engineering of making intelligence machines” – McCarthy

“The study and design of intelligence agents, where an intelligence agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success.  – russel and Norvig AI book

“Just as the industrial revolution freed up a lot of humanity from physical drudgery. I think AI has the potential to free up humanity from a lot of the mental drudgery.  – Andrew Ng

Four schools of thoughts (Russel & Norvig)

Thinking Humanly (Cognitive approach)

Machines write minds

Thinking rationally (laws of thoughts)
“The exciting new effort to make computers think… machines with minds, in the full and literal sense.

(haugeland, 1985)

“The study of mental faculties through the use of computational models. (Chaniak and McDermmot, 1985)
Acting Humanly (Alan Turing 1951) Acting rationally (do the right thing, maximize goal achievement) expected best outcome.
The study of how to make computers do things which, at the moment, people are better.

(Rich and Knight, 1991)

Computational intelligence is the study of the design of intelligence agents.

(Poole et Al. 1998)

Aristotle: Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good.
