Juergen Schmidhuber: True Artificial Intelligence will Change Everything

  • Sep 5, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • AHL

Very last minute but we are very fortunate to have Juergen Schmidhuber in town and give a talk at the meetup.

Doors open at 6:30pm, talk starts at 7pm

RSVPs open at 4pm.

True Artificial Intelligence will Change Everything - Juergen Schmidhuber

Our deep learning artificial neural networks have won numerous contests in pattern recognition and machine learning. They are now widely used by the world’s most valuable public companies. I will discuss latest state-of-the-art results in numerous applications, and outline how AI will transform every aspect of our civilisation.


Since age 15 or so, the main goal of professor Jürgen Schmidhuber (pronounce: You_again Shmidhoobuh) has been to build a self-improving Artificial Intelligence (AI) smarter than himself, then retire. He has pioneered self-improving general problem solvers since 1987, and Deep Learning Neural Networks (NNs) since 1991. The recurrent NNs developed by his research groups at the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA (USI & SUPSI) & TU Munich were the first to win official international contests. They have revolutionized handwriting recognition, speech recognition, machine translation, image captioning, and are now available to over a billion users through Google, Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Baidu, and many other companies. DeepMind is heavily influenced by his lab's former students (including 2 of DeepMind's first 4 members and their first PhDs in AI, one of them co-founder, one of them first employee). His team's Deep Learners were the first to win object detection and image segmentation contests, and achieved the world's firstsuperhuman visual classification results, winning nine international competitions in machine learning & pattern recognition (more than any other team). They also were the first to learn control policies

    Great meet up. The talk has changed my concept of big data analysis and opened up thought provoking pathways for discovery.

      If you search youtube for schmidhuber, you'll find prior instances of his talk

    So glad to see he didn't make the same jokes he's been making for 20 years! (And in fact the one joke he did recycle, was refreshingly modified slightly)

    Great talk. Made me think about what the objective function for future AI might evolve to be...

    Very good speech. But i couldnt get the Hyperion book out of my mind where AIs create a black hole so the humans help them travel to outwr space....

    The best AI talk I've ever been to. And I've been to quite a few :-)
