Episode 1.23: Driverless Vehicles, Digital Yeast, and Montezuma’s Revenge
With the news of the first death at the digital hands of a driverless vehicle, Andy and Dave discuss some of the broader issues surrounding the understanding and implementation of AI technology. In other news, they discuss the creation of a digital version of yeast (DCell) as a way to provide insight into the otherwise “black box” of AI. Then, after describing DeepMind’s efforts into using evolutionary Auto Machine Learning to discover neural network architectures, Andy and Dave discuss an example of how background knowledge (“priors”) transfers to the world of games, and how that compares with AI.
