Here’s what I find interesting about this talk. About 8:30 in you can see how the neural net visualizes images and it seems to be extremely similar to how humans recognize things. It gives me a sense that all the human brain really does is match inputs and memories. The brain is more of an intuition engine rather than a reasoning machine. Looks like they are putting the pieces together and this is a step towards an artificial brain.

    Goodby more jobs!

    Can our robot overlords say “Do you want fries with that?”

    • Ah_Yea says:

      We’re so screwed.

      • Hmeyers says:

        Wow, that candy robot is fast as hell.

      • Ah_Yea says:

        Of course someone will be telling us that our lives will be better since we will be relieved from having to do menial labor.

        No job is better than a menial job!

      • Ah_Yea says:

        Just watched the candy packing machine.

        Better than any human. I blame Lucile Ball for this one.

    Ted Talks jumped the shark when they started allowing low quality psuedo-science topics a few years ago.

    I think they let an anti-vaxxer fraudster do one about 4 years ago and there were other examples.

    Since then, I have had no interest in them.
