Past, Present and Future of AI / Machine Learning (Google I/O ’17)

    That lady in the black and white is super super smart. I mean they all are but she seem to have a big vision of the past impacts to the future impacts of AI.

    We so need people like the woman from calicolabs, its the ability to tackle a problem from such a critical viewpoint where she actually said, and I'm paraphrasing, age seems to be the number one factor in your demise, there is diseases / many other risk including like death from whatever as we get older. Later, she moved to how she wanted to tackle making your life better as you age… 😉

    Hopefully, this whole A.I. stuff will in some extents satisfy the expectation of some investors. Otherwise, we will have another A.I. winter just like what has happened in the 1970s. Machine learning is nothing new, we just have better computational power and more data right now.

    The talk is about a bunch of machine learning and deep learning stuff. But i didn't get it, why the future of A.I. ? Where are the A.I. topics in this talk?

    12:20 – Yeah right voice search… Didn't came out year after Apple released Siri (made by company that they bought tho).

    AI in Google is dominated by ladies? Good news. Seems that our world will be less violent when we are dominated by AI.

    Having been in the biz 40+ years, I welcome experiences that disrupt my gender biases, such as this video. Thanks.

    To any one stating a lack of "facts" in this Talk. The underlying knowledge through the board here is huge!
    Especially the short speech from fernanda from 31:00 on is eyeopening, literally.
    keep it up!

    Google I/O: "We'll live longer & better." -> little applause; "We're supporting Kotlin programming language for Android dev." -> huge applause.

    Collecting extremely large amounts of data and finding consistencies and inconsistencies within completely unrelated systems (macro and micro) is the greatest contribution that A.I. can make towards understanding the universe, improving technology as a result.

    the speech reco expert clearly lives in a world different from mine. I mean indeed speech is very important in daily lives, but really not very much of that is using artificial intelligence (most speech is still processed by humans).

    Most of this stuff has been around for decades, but only recently has anyone figured out how to put them all together. Now I can command my phone to "show me pictures of cats", and I see pictures of cats. Perhaps we have reached the summit of human achievement and any future accomplishment will be a disappointment.

    I know I'm not smart but what's the difference between massive if/ else statements and AI. It's a bigger decision tree in simple terms right?

    Data from all artificial brain machines will be disseminated to other artificial brain machines to be synchronized and then reassembled for processing by the computer, then distributed again to all artificial brain machines and so on …… this way is expected to extend the life of humans . Why not just developed an artificial immune system or so-called human body's defense system.

    I think it was smart to only build an AI that would never have an access to the Internet. One would only manually upload information to it, give it a task and wait for it to create various solutions from which people could pick up the most appropriate ones for the fulfilling of the required task. The AI should also have no ability to create or do anything besides creating ideas. it should also not have an understanding of itself as an individual. In other words, it should only be an isolated machine that can be used in solving scientific problems.

    All panelists female even tho men enroll in STEM much more than women. I'm sure that happened through fair competition and pro-female bias had nothing to do with it.

    I am so excited about how we've developed X in the past, it has a huge role to play in developing Y, it is a very interesting time with so many challenges overcome yet so many new ones blah blah blah blah.. replace X and Y with AI, robotics, machine learning, speech recognition etc. I expected more from top google scientists. I must say that this could be better done by a simple bot just repeating the same statements in different configurations without much facts or information. The topic deserves much better coverage then served by this panel.

    where are the white males? Driven from google by the diversity initiative? or down in the engine rooms of google writing the actual code?

    interested in AI and MACHINE LEARNING visit my yech blog to get a simple and lucid intro adstark1.blogspot.com and must put ur views too

    25:55 It's so mind blowing to me how much of research is motivated by nature. It seems really obvious, but it's not like I look at my phone throughout the day and think "gee, I'm able to unlock my phone with my face because of insights scientists gleaned from nature"

    DATA is already in sequence we need a purpose to pick up right data at right time. The purpose is to make human life better, faster and comfortable.

    Yes I love this! Power to the women! This is what little girls need to look up to not Kim Kardashian and Barbie dolls! Do something meaniful in your life and stop looking in the mirrior every 5 minutes! This is what women should look like cause we are human beings not objects for men to play with! So use your brain girls and have some self respect! Listen to these women they are where we need to be.

    These are excellent AI researchers. But Google's Deepmind leaders are at a higher level than anybody in the field of AI, IMHO.

    At 15:38-40 the subtitles read: "So visualization is one way that you can sort of peak and try to understand what's happening in these systems". The word should be "peek". The speaker actually reinforces what she says by her body language (her hands and arms looking over the edge of something). "peak" makes no sense in the context and you may be able to guess what she means simply by listening to the audio, maybe in combination with her body language, and by ignoring the incorrect subtitles.

    Is an AI system doing the subtitles?

    Yeah, humans too can produce utter garbage in creating subtitles (we could open a channel for some real doozies!) but at least any reasonably educated person can pick up the mistake and make them read sensibly. Does it matter? Yes, it does to people who are deaf and to people who do not know the language being subtitled. English has a lot of homonyms and their misuse gives rise to jokes, and you can still enjoy the opera/film in another language even if mistakes are made, but correct "translation" is incredibly important in international councils like the UN.

    "That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth."

    AI has a long, long way to go to making a "good hash" of speech recognition. What a lot of levels of meaning and punning can be made out of those two little words 🙂

    The moderator is in way over her head, isn't she? She seems really nervious and as tho she just bearly understands the language the pannelists are speaking.

    I really didn't think it possible, a forty-four minute "lecture" with a content so vacuous, so utterly devoid of useful details. It seems the content is geared towards a pre-teenage audience, a primer if you will, AI 101.
    It is astounding how this group can speak for so long & say so little!

    Listening to these ladies felt like drinking water from a fire hose. Their knowledge inspired me to work even harder.
