    Studying Self-studying plan for modern science

    Hey guys, I want to build a strong and straight plan for my next years of studying and once finish I am able to do something on my own and come up with crazy ideas and actually test them, build some awesome algorithms, all that cool stuff, but I'm kinda stumble so it would be nice if someone...

    What is the reward in Reinforcement Learning?

    I know I'm not that bright and I realize that this is a silly question to anyone in the field, but I was curious what the reward is in reinforcement learning algorithms. I understand the concept behind reinforcement learning, though I am unsure of how you could program a reward into a program...

    The time when AI can overcome humans

    How much time the machine can overcome the human? I was thinking about around 50 years? But I am not sure. I would like that you guys can take me this doubt.

    What would AI *want to do*, according to physics?

    I would like to start a thread about what AI would *want to do*? I am assigning some intentionality to it and due to that I can only make one observation, that it would want to ensure its own self-preservation. Following from that, I would like to ask, given this sub-forum, what do you think...

    Poll: Will AI mark the end of humans and Earth?

    Do you think AI will lead to the end of humanity, Earth, or help us colonise the Universe and prosper? Will technology and robots kill us all? I found the interest in posting this poll after reading some quotes from Stephen Hawking on the topic. Poll. Thank you.

    On why the safest form of AI is a simulation of the brain

    I have read differing arguments about the potential utility or negative issues arising due to AI. There are many concerns about the 'control problem' of AI or how to 'sandbox' AI so it can serve our interests and not let a fast takeoff of AI lead to a situation where AI is the sole power around...

    Machine learning / AI - Where do I start?

    I am a programming novice with minimal knowledge of C, Python and Java that I've taught myself from books and videos. Eventually I'd like to get into AI and machine learning but I have no idea where to start. Thus far, the minimal coding I've learnt has been rather aimless with no specific...

    Do you feel safer with self-driving cars on the road?

    As a AI programmer, among other things, I know the limitations of the technology. So I vote No to this question. For one thing, safe driving demands being able to think ahead and anticipate situations which sensors do not pick up.

    Why is 'AI' often so negatively portrayed?

    I just have a simple question, which probably a psychologist might better answer; but, here it goes... Why is AI so badly portrayed by people? I'm kind of tired of all the negativity surrounding AI, which seems unwarranted in any way. Why do people, often well educated and intelligent...

    Wait But Why: Neuralink - Elon's new company

    This is a long read, but totally worth it. It's about Elon Musk's new company Neuralink and why we need it. The latter is answered quite thoroughly. http://waitbutwhy.com/2017/04/neuralink.html What amazed me was the perspective of humans as a whole, seen as a single organism, where a single...

    Book suggestions for getting into AI development?

    Hi I'm a freshman in college that is interested in AI, and I wanted to do some independent studies on this subject. Is there some good books I can read to get into AI development, and could you also suggest books for advance developers? Thank you

    A Three lines two neurons and M×M receptors.

    Dear all, I have lately been interested in AI. One of my thoughts has been as follows: What if we have two 'neurons' and the world consists of vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines. How would we go about making sure only one neuron is assigned to either vertical or horizontal lines and...
