• Natural Born Algorithms

    Coworking Rynek Główny 28

    Isn't it remarkable that it takes Physics to explain why Deep Learning is so effective? Let's get back to the one-dimensional Cellular Automaton proposed by Steven Wolfram to find out that even this simple model is sufficient for executing any algorithm, it is Turing complete. All that mixed with fragments of Digital Philosophy articulated on short videos. What knowledge would be helpful to bring to the meeting? As always it is good be familiar with fundamental concepts of computability and Turing Machine. This time having any intro to cellular automatons could also help. Presentation will be lead by: Marcin Stepien (www.twitter.com/marcinstepien) Agenda: Discuss, watch videos, plan next meetings. Goal: learn & have fun Do you keep your favorite discovery, video, whitepaper or quote on the subject? Please, bring it to the meeting!

  • Computing Chaitin’s Omega

    Do even mathematical truths violate the principle of sufficient reason? As bits in Omega number that "are true for no reason. They have the value that they do for no reason simpler than themselves"? Let’s watch and discuss Chaitin's discoveries made within the Algorithmic Information Theory. What knowledge would be helpful to bring to the meeting? Again, it is good to understand the fundamental concepts of Turing Machine. For a warm-up, you may want to watch Closer to Truth episode with Gregory Chaitin [https://www.closertotruth.com/interviews/1950] or the lecture given during Copernicus Festival in Krakow [https://youtu.be/WllJrHX_3ZI] Presentation will be lead by: Marcin Stepien (www.twitter.com/marcinstepien) Agenda: Discuss, watch videos, plan next meetings.

  • Limits of AI. The Gödelian argument.

    Is Artificial general Intelligence of human level possible? Let’s watch and discuss the “classic” point of view denying current computers as able of reconstructing human-level intelligence. What knowledge would be helpful to bring to the meeting? Understanding some fundamental concepts of Turing Machine and refreshing Gödel Theorems https://youtu.be/O4ndIDcDSGc Agenda: Discuss, watch videos, planning next meetings.

  • Randomness from determinism

    Coworking Rynek Główny 28

    Is randomness actually lack of knowledge? Is everything already determined but often impossible to predict? Let’s hear it from Stephen Wolfram's point of view and see the evolution of a one-dimensional cellular automaton. Agenda: - Inspiration for this group - Format - List of subjects to discuss on next meetings - Randomness from determinism. Short videos & discussion. - Socialize over a beer Do you keep your favorite discovery, video, whitepaper or quote on the subject? Bring it to the meeting!
