Episode 1.7: DoD AI Spending, Lifelong Learning Machines, and Accountability
Andy and Dave discuss a market analysis report that identifies where the Department of Defense is spending money in artificial intelligence, big data, and the cloud. They also elaborate on the challenge of "catastrophic forgetting," and a 4-year program at DARPA that seeks to develop "Lifelong Learning Machines," which can continuously apply the results of past experiences. After a conversation about SquishedNets, they cover a Harvard research paper that asserts the need for AI to have explanatory capabilities and accountability.
