Episode 1.17: Synapses, Voynich, ELIZA, and Golem XIV

Andy and Dave start this week’s episode with a superconducting ‘synapse’ that could enable powerful future neuromorphic supercomputers. They discuss an attempt to use AI to decode the mysterious Voynich manuscript, and then move on to Hofstadter’s take on the shallowness of Google Translate (with mention of the ELIZA effect). After discussing DroNet’s drones that can learn to fly by watching a driving video, and updating the Domain-Adaptive Meta-Learning discussion where a robot can learn a task by watching a video, they close with some recommendations of videos and books, including Lem’s ‘Golem XIV.’
