Thomas Dietterich | TWIML


Today we’re joined by Tom Dietterich, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Oregon State University. We had the pleasure of discussing Tom’s recent blog post, “What does it mean for a machine to “understand,” in which he discusses: Tom’s position on what qualifies as machine “understanding”, including a few examples of systems that he believes exhibit understanding. The role of deep learning in achieving artificial general intelligence. The current “Hype Engine” that exists around AI Research, and SOOO much more. Make sure you check out the show notes at twimlai.com/talk/315, where you’ll find links to Tom’s blog post, as well as a ton of other references.
