  1. Zeynep Tufekci: Machine intelligence makes human morals more important | TED Talk | TED.com

    Machine intelligence is here, and we’re already using it to make subjective decisions. But the complex way AI grows and improves makes it hard to understand and even harder to control. In this cautionary talk, techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci explains how intelligent machines can fail in ways that don’t fit human error patterns — and in ways we won’t expect or be prepared for. "We cannot outsource our responsibilities to machines," she says. "We must hold on ever tighter to human values and human ethics."

    a16z Podcast: Making Sense of Big Data, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning

    "Machine learning is to big data as human learning is to life experience," says Christopher Nguyen, the co-founder and CEO of big data intelligence company Adatao. Sure, but then, what IS big data? (especially as it’s become a buzzword that captures so many things)…

    On this episode of the a16z Podcast, Nguyen puts on his former computer science professor hat to describe ‘big data’ in relation to ‘machine learning’ — as well as what comes next with ‘deep learning’. Finally, the former Google exec shares how Hadoop and Spark evolved from the efforts of companies dealing with massive amounts of real-time information; what we need to make machine learning a property of every application (why would we even want to?); and how we can make all this intelligence accessible to everyone.

  5. Rodney Brooks on Artificial Intelligence - Econlib

    Rodney Brooks, emeritus professor of robotics at MIT, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the future of robots and artificial intelligence. Brooks argues that we both under-appreciate and over-appreciate the impact of innovation. He applies this insight to the current state of driverless cars and other changes people are expecting to change our daily …

  6. The Future According to Now: What’s the Moral Compass of your Car?

    When a crash is inevitable and a human is at the wheel, the driver makes a split-second decision. In a car controlled by algorithms, this choice is predetermined by a programmer. Should your car hit a pedestrian to save your life? Should your car sacrifice your life to save the lives of others? Self-driving cars will become a reality in the near future, but what of the moral quandaries involved?

  7. Tim Leberecht: 4 ways to build a human company in the age of machines

    In the face of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we need a new radical humanism, says Tim Leberecht. For the self-described "business romantic," this means designing organizations and workplaces that celebrate authenticity instead of efficiency and questions instead of answers. Leberecht proposes four (admittedly subjective) principles for building beautiful organizations.

  8. The Knowledge Project: Pedro Domingos on Artificial Intelligence

    On this episode, I am so happy to have Pedro Domingos who is a professor at the University of Washington. He’s the leading researcher in machine learning and recently wrote an amazing book called The Master Algorithm. In this conversation we explore the sources of knowledge, the five major schools of machine learning, why white collar jobs are easier to replace than blue collar jobs, machine wars, self-driving cars and so much more.

  9. The Future According to Now: My Paralegal Is a Robot

    The artificial intelligence marketplace is primed to surge from $8 billion this year to $47 billion by 2020. AI’s prime contribution will be to work through the enormous amount of data that modern technology is producing, make sense of the big data by discovering trends and patterns, and suggest ways forward. Already, algorithms are conducting research for law firms and writing stories for newspapers, among other tasks. As AI continues to evolve, it will continue to transform the way businesses function and how people live their lives, augmenting—not replacing—human intelligence and expertise.

  10. The Longform Society: Meeting #1: Robots

    Will humans have moral obligations to robots? Are we guilty of ‘origin chauvinism’ if we believe only natural phenomena can exhibit consciousness? And is this line of thinking a sinister cousin to racism? What’s the definition of moral agency with regards to driverless cars and lethal autonomous weapons? How might artificial intelligence mitigate human suffering?

    In our first meeting of the Longform Society, we’ll read a selection of compelling, entertaining and occasionally terrifying pieces on the subject of robots and artificial intelligence.
