Show Notes:
1:21 – Hein Hundal Background

2:29 – “Machine Learning Revolution” and how did neural nets become the most commonly used machine learning method for pattern recognition?

6:09 – If we’re creating neural nets, why don’t we understand how they [neural nets with dropout techniques] really work? Shouldn’t we understand?

8:01 – Describe a generative adversarial network (GAN). How did we evolve from neural nets to GANs?

11:08 – Are there broader implications in society from GANs?

12:26 – How does a practitioner risk getting lost in the proverbial forest, or, having a neural net create a mirage? (Referring to overfitting).

13:44 – DeepMind’s Go computer, AlphaZero, is quite adept at playing chess, despite having been trained and built to learn Go. Does this imply that we are moving down the path of general intelligence?

17:00 – Is Machine Learning/are neural nets actually creative?

12:58 –What are your views on how disruptive AI will be to employment?
