  37. 37. Connectionist Approach: Classification Source: Wikimedia Commons Classification: the perceptron separates inputs in two classes with a linear boundary Boundary: Straight line in 2 dimension, plane in 3 dimensions, n- 1 hyperplane in n dimensions (=n variables) Learning: Inclusion of new elements in the training set increases accuracy Limits: Complex boundaries, XOR functions

  44. 44. • Bayesian techniques: Use probability theory and Bayes theorem to uptdate existing knowledge incorparating new data • P(A) = P event #1 • P(B) = P event #2 • P(A|B) = Probability of A if B is true • P (B|A) = Probability of B if A is true • “Degree of belief” subjective / theoretical (Vs frequentist / experimental) • Example: Google’s antispam filter Statistical Approach: Bayesian Reasoning
  45. 45. Markov Chain: sequence of states with probabilistic relation Example: In a sentence, if there is the word X then there is a probability P than the next word will be Y Example: Google’s Page Rank Hidden Markov model: Hidden states, operates as a dynamic Bayesian network Example: Apple’s voice recognition Monte Carlo Chain: random values from probability distributions, then find outputs from each set of values -> complex models without complex functions Statistical Approach: Markov Chains Source: Wikimedia Commons.

  54. 54. • Vernon Vinge • Hans Moravec • Nick Bostrom • Elizer S. Yudkowsky • Ben Goertzel • Ray Kurzweil Speculation on Super-human AI “The term “Singularity” in my book is comparable to the use of this term by the physics community. Just as we find it hard to see beyond the event horizon of a black hole, we also find it difficult to see beyond the event horizon of the historical Singularity. How can we …. imagine what our future civilization, with its intelligence multiplied trillions-fold, be capable of thinking and doing?” (Ray Kurzweil)
  55. 55. Maybe the Singularity is not near …...
  56. 56. Or maybe we should fear the Roko’s Basilisk ! “Roko's basilisk is a thought experiment about the potential risks involved in developing artificial intelligence. The premise is that an all-powerful artificial intelligence from the future could retroactively punish those who did not help bring about its existence, including those who merely knew about the possible development of such a being. It resembles a futurist version of Pascal's wager.” (Source: RationalWiki)
