In this post, we’ll go over the basics of deep learning in a concise form, avoiding tricky math when possible. If you don’t understand deep learning already, hopefully by the end of this post you’ll get a gist of how this technology works.
Using artificial intelligence (AI) for content creation is already a reality.
AI is a versatile set of various methods. As you probably know, modern AI is largely based on machine learning (ML).
One particular branch of ML has found its use in many areas, especially for solving complex tasks, such as different types of content generation.
This branch is called deep learning. Deep learning is almost always based on so-called deep neural networks.
These days, deep neural networks can generate images, music, text, and other types of patterns.
So, let’s dive deeper!!
Synthetic biology is a branch of science and industry dealing predominantly with designing genetically modified organisms. Also, with the help of synthetic biology, we can currently edit the human genome to treat various genetic diseases, it is called gene therapy. We hope it will eventually allow us to significantly increase the duration of human life. In addition, there is another possible application of synthetic biology, which has not often been mentioned.
We know that animals, and especially humans, have a very amazing intelligent machine called a brain. Even the most powerful supercomputers, which consume a lot of energy and occupy a lot of area, can’t effectively perform many tasks which can be easily performed by an ordinary human’s brain or even an animal’s brain, and at the same time the average brain consumes less than 100 watt energy and is held in a relatively small volume of space. And why shouldn’t we try to improve this wonderful natural device in order to obtain even a better thinking machine?
This post is a chapter from my book “How to Create Machine Superintelligence”
Artificial general intelligence is probably the holy grail of computer science. Despite tangible progress in machine learning in recent years, many computer scientists believe that we are still far away from creating really intelligence machines. They say that, probably, even human-level artificial general intelligence is still decades away. The main problem is that we have to incorporate machine learning systems with reasoning and planning. So, what can we do about that?
It’s widely believed that the progress in the field of artificial intelligence has a potential to spawn a new technological revolution in the near future. Today, artificial intelligence already brings a lot of benefits to humanity.
Intelligence is the resource that allows us to take advantage of all other resources around us. And the augmentation of the human brain is probably the most radical method to vastly enhance our abilities and significantly improve our lives.
