Intelligence framework approach from Jeff Hawkins - An General AI approach ?

 

After amazing discussions around the GDC in particular the controversial keynote about Gaming AI is just about path finding and flanking it’s time for a next meetup. Following our initial discussion I would like to dive deeper into the intelligence framework approach from Jeff Hawkins. Introducing the general approach of the framework shouldn’t take that long. I think 10 minutes are ok. Afterwards I would like to discuss it especially from the personalisation point of view because if it is possible to personalise it then it could be an interesting approach for bots. If you like to know more about it just read the book OnIntelligence from Jeff Hawkins or hear the talk at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4y43qwS8fl4 (thx Charles for sharing).

Update[masked]: Location: http://www.cuttysarkse10.co.uk/ (very nice pub, I've reserved for us) I'm looking forward to meet you :)

 

Cheers

Rob

    Wow! Good choice of topic. I really want to go, because I am very interested in Jeff Hawkins' work. I even wrote a blog about a possible modular neural network architecture inspired by his book "On Intelligence" http://home.yiqingliang.com/aiiaa/ . My work is still very immature, but I hope to kick start a conversation with this blog. However, there is a possibility I won't be in the UK during that weekend.........

      Thanks I read Ben's review. I agree with his view on Hawkins missing the importance on how this enhanced hierarchy will construct a complex understanding and map of symbols and how they can be recognised and processed and reacted to over time. - Back to watching the video Charles Shared. For me understanding language will be fundamental to AGI - which is different to what Hawkins says in the video. But I suppose it depends on what you want your AI agent to do. At the end of his book I think he says he does not believe that human level intelligence is possible (Or am I getting mixed up with some other book I read a while ago... ???).

      Also Yiqing I will read your blog - thanks for sharing.

      I am also intrigued by Ben's work (Opencog) but not as yet convinced by it. I also agree with Ben that thinking at a low biological level misses out on thinking about what computers do well. Success at the low level also relies on not addressing the problem on how millions of years of evolution have enhanced the development of higher level pattern storage recognition and processing. Stirring a bucket of neurons will probably just make thicker soup. I think throwing in some generic intelligent processing algorithms would give you a more magical brew and jump start your AI agent up the evolutionary tree.

    Here an article from Technology Review:
    Is Artificial Intelligence Finally Coming into Its Own? http://techre.vu/XSB4dv

    It provides an excellent overview about the latest developments. Furthermore, it contrasts deep learning vs. Jeff Hawkins approach and outlines the aims of the different teams. See you Saturday
