es in the Larry Elliot writes in the Guardian about the Fourth Industrial Revolution being debated at the annual World Economic Forum (WEF). This is the revolution being enacted by automation, AI and machine learning, something I wrote about last time in my review of Olle Häggström’s book Here Be Dragons. Another influential commentator to write on this… Read More The Fourth Industrial Revolution
Olle Häggström Here Be Dragons Oxford University Press 2016. In his acclaimed book Reasons and Persons, the British philosopher Derek Parfit discusses his theory of identities where a person at a certain time instant is not the same as the person an instant later. The author of the book under review is a self–professed admirer of… Read More Tilting at Windmills?
The Machine Learning group at Chalmers University of Technology is pleased to announce the Machine Learning Seminars for the spring. We’ll have both local and invited speakers covering a broad spectrum of machine learning-related topics, from deep learning to Bayesian and sparse methods. The talks will be kept accessible to a wide audience with interest… Read More Chalmers Machine Learning Seminars
Under den här veckan pågår i Montreal en av de stora årliga höjdpunkterna inom maskininlärning: konferensen Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS). NIPS startades i slutet av 1980-talet och har utvecklats till en av de största mötesplatserna för forskare och industri inom maskininlärning, artificiell intelligens, statistik, algoritmer, med mera. Konferensens handlingar är dessutom en av de mest prestigefyllda… Read More NIPS 2015
Intelligence, especially that of machines – which is the focus of this blog – seems to be the Zeitgeist – in the new Millenium novel, the plot centers around the murder of the famous Swedish scientist Frans Balder whose research is about self-learning algorithms. Films like Her and ex Machina may (still) be fiction, but driverless… Read More “The Future of Intelligence”: Nobel Dialogues 2015
