Does playing a game of “Go” have anything in common with identifying a cat in an image? Apparently it does, for in either case human intelligence is outcompeted by artificial intelligence (AI). Skoltech researcher, Alexey Zaytsev, will reflect on whether there is a reason for over-hyping AI and its most popular variety (deep neural networks) that are able to control self-driving cars, make paintings and compose music; meanwhile, AI still has to be programmed anew for each particular task. Will it be possible to create a universal, multi-task tool that will ultimately beat human intelligence?
The lecture will be given in Russian at Zaryadye Park Lecture Center on January 29, 2019 at 7 p.m.
