This week’s episode is a Boulder Startup Week talk featuring Jeff Rose, the Founder and CEO of ThinkTopic. Jeff’s expertise is in operating systems, algorithms, neural networks, image processing and information retrieval. Jeff’s talk is about Artificial Intelligence;which has seen a lot of hype recently from big dollar startup acquisitions to doomsday predictions. These lead to more questions than answers such as – What is at the core of AI advancements? What’s driving the hype? And what are the true promises and perils of a “super intelligence?”
Jeff will walk through the design of the neocortex, how the mechanism of the human brain translates to AI software, and the reasons why machine learning is taking off today. Finally, get a “hype-free” view of its potential while engaging in some fun thought experiments on future AI utopias and dystopias.
