Read each of my written expositions thrice. First — at least as you have already become mechanized to read all your contemporary books and newspapers, Second — as if you were reading aloud to another person, And only third — try to fathom the gist of my writings. Only then will you be able to count upon forming your own impartial judgment, proper to yourself alone, on my writings. And only then can my hope be actualized that according to your understanding you will obtain the specific benefit for yourself which I anticipate, and which I wish for you with all my being.

These types of questions are known as Winorgad schemas. Current AI success rate is barely above 50%, almost random guess. Adult human can easily get 100%. 8 years old can probably get 90% or so.

It is much harder for AI than Turing test. Effectively, it is better replacement of it. (What is the replacement for what? :)

Jürgen Schmidhuber: "And then our galaxy will go dark". [Apr. 14th, 2017|01:24 am]

Fascinating. First 11 minutes are rather boring, talking about LSTMs and stuff. At 11:00 all hell breaks loose when Jürgen starts making predictions about the future (mild spoiler: it ends with "and then our galaxy will go dark").

The best explanation, among other things, of the difference between classical and quantum systems. Almost no math, just old good analogies.

another panel on AI [Mar. 31st, 2017|04:58 pm]
Not a Number
[Tags|, , , , , ]

не очень интересная, за исключением девяти минут, начиная с отметки 20:00, см. https://youtu.be/rZe-A2aDOgA?t=20m

эти девять минут описывают некоторые свежие проблемы в области ai and/or machine learning, скорее второе. свежие только для экспертов, конечно. пелевин предсказал и описал эти проблемы ещё ого-го когда.

дополнительный вопрос на пятёрку: перечислить произведения пелевина, в которых предсказаны и описаны эти проблемы :)

к сожалению, несмотря на то, что даже само название панели содержит слово control, ни один из экспертов не имеет понятия о control problem, иначе бы они безусловно упомянули, потому что это было бы прямо по теме. за исключением яна таллина, конечно - он-то точно знает, но почему-то решил выступить философским образом, в который, кажется, мало кто въехал.

Это надо видеть как он до сих пор, на самом деле, горячо верит и защищает этот свой аргумент! Не дай бог так оголодать :)

Свежая панель экспертов по superintelligence [Mar. 23rd, 2017|05:33 pm]
Not a Number
[Tags|, , ]

Состав панели впечатляет до глубины души:

- Nick Bostrom
- Stuart Russell
- Demis Hassabis
- Ray Kurzweil
- Elon Musk
- Sam Harris
- Jaan Tallinn
- David Chalmers
- и ещё парочка

Практически, только Элиезера Юдковского не хватает. Ведущий - известный физик Max Tegmark.

Для сравнения - похожая панель, якобы тоже про AI, собранная другим известным физиком Brian Cox:

Тут, наоборот, хочется спросить: кто все эти люди?

Upd: бля пиздец. жж вообще unusable anymore. в этот пост я вставлял два видео, про первую панель и про вторую. я ещё проверил после того, как запостил, были. а теперь их нет, зато появился какой-то безумный маркап с [br], [p dir="ltr"] и проч.

ссылка на первое видео: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc2tiSH_eBg
второе: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gcuaqqRXK4&t=4489s
