• Antikythera
(200 BC)
• Mechanical

(1770-1854)
• Difference

Mechanical Turk: https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/tech-history/dawn-of-electronics/untold-history-of-ai-charles-babbage-and-the-turk

In 2014, a study by Carman and Evans argued for a new dating of approximately 200 BC based on identifying the start-up date on the Saros Dial as the astronomical
lunar month that began shortly after the new moon of 28 April 205 BC.[15][16] Moreover, according to Carman and Evans, the Babylonian arithmetic style of prediction
fits much better with the device's predictive models than the traditional Greek trigonometric style.[15] A study by Paul Iversen published in 2017 reasons that the
prototype for the device was indeed from Rhodes, but that this particular model was modified for a client from Epirus in northwestern Greece; Iversen argues that it was
probably constructed no earlier than a generation before the shipwreck, a date supported also by Jones.[46]

The Turk, also known as the Mechanical Turk or Automaton Chess Player (German: Schachtürke, "chess Turk"; Hungarian: A Török), was a fake chess-playing machine
constructed in the late 18th century. From 1770 until its destruction by fire in 1854 it was exhibited by various owners as an automaton, though it was eventually revealed
to be an elaborate hoax.[1] Constructed and unveiled in 1770 by Wolfgang von Kempelen (Hungarian: Kempelen Farkas; 1734–1804) to impress the Empress Maria
Theresa of Austria, the mechanism appeared to be able to play a strong game of chess against a human opponent, as well as perform the knight's tour, a puzzle that
requires the player to move a knight to occupy every square of a chessboard exactly once.

The Turk was in fact a mechanical illusion that allowed a human chess master hiding inside to operate the machine. With a skilled operator, the Turk won most of the
games played during its demonstrations around Europe and the Americas for nearly 84 years, playing and defeating many challengers including statesmen such as
Napoleon Bonaparte and Benjamin Franklin. The device was later purchased in 1804 and exhibited by Johann Nepomuk Mälzel. The chess masters who secretly
operated it included Johann Allgaier, Boncourt, Aaron Alexandre, William Lewis, Jacques Mouret, and William Schlumberger, but the operators within the mechanism
during Kempelen's original tour remain a mystery.

What do we mean by Artificial
intelligence?
• Evolving
understanding
• Sense of others
• Sense of self
http://www.decadecounter.com/readingroom/kuttner.htm

A robot with self-regard

Why now:

Big Data

Big CPUs

Big Wins

we will be doing weak AI here: machine learning: minimum cutoff: unsupervised & evolving
No context, no ontology, no sense of self or other, still amazing for what it is
And if you are a programmer, go here!
http://timeandquantummechanics.comArtificial Intelligence/John Ashmead Philcon 2020
Where is AI now?
• NOT strong or general AI. No common sense.
No ontology. Invariably narrow focus.
• BIG DATA: Google search, Twitter, …
• BIG CPUs: (parallel processing, graphics
processors, especially NVIDIA)
• and BIG WINS: GoogleTranslate, ImageNet,
AlphaZero (DeepMind), Watson
• Here AI means: unsupervised & evolving
machine learning
• Which can perform at better than human levels,
at least with respect to some characteristics

AlphaZero
• Learns by itself
• Beat AlphaGo
• Plays chess,
checkers, shoji, …
that’s not sexy, sexy is taking starfighters to the ends of the Galaxy & blowing up things with tentacles

games: reason: well-defined problem space

chess the first big win

— in fact first chess AI built before first computers — founders fascinated

alpha Go biggest win

but it was fed games

alpha zero plays itself

and then learns other games as well

using GAN

fix the problem of how to get enough data.

DeepMind Technologies is a UK based artificial intelligence company and research laboratory founded in September 2010, and acquired by Google[4] in 2014. The
company is based in London, with research centres in Canada,[5] France,[6] and the United States. In 2015, it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.
The company has created a neural network that learns how to play video games in a fashion similar to that of humans,[7] as well as a Neural Turing machine,[8] or a
neural network that may be able to access an external memory like a conventional Turing machine, resulting in a computer that mimics the short-term memory of the
human brain.[9][10]

The company made headlines in 2016 after its AlphaGo program beat a human professional Go player Lee Sedol, the world champion, in a five-game match, which was
the subject of a documentary film.[11] A more general program, AlphaZero, beat the most powerful programs playing go, chess and shogi (Japanese chess) after a few
days of play against itself using reinforcement learning.[12]

What happens when you have Deep Learning begin to generate your designs? The commons misconception would be that a machine’s design would look ‘mechanical’
or ‘logical’. However, what we seem to be finding is that they look very organic, in fact they look organic or like an alien biology. Take a look at some of these fascinating
designs.

These Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) are designed by an algorithm and shown to be more effective than the conventional LSTM (Note: These are Neural Networks
designed with memory elements). These are generative neural architectures, machines that learn to learn, more like meta meta-models. Learning apparently is not
uniform and I highly suspect that meta-level reasoning is a primary mechanism in learning and that is reflected by its biological manifestation. After all, isn’t learning
enhanced by diversity as well as adaptability? The same ingredients to biological survival?

In the aftermath of the incident, the Soviet government investigated the incident and determined that Petrov had insufficiently documented his actions during the crisis.
He explained it as "Because I had a phone in one hand and the intercom in the other, and I don't have a third hand"; nevertheless, Petrov received a reprimand.[4]

“By monitoring posts, pictures, interactions and internet activity in real time,” the executives wrote, “Facebook can work out when young people feel ‘stressed,’
‘defeated,’ ‘overwhelmed,’ ‘anxious,’ ‘nervous,’ ‘stupid,’ ‘silly,’ ‘useless’ and a ‘failure.’” This depth of information, they explained, allows Facebook to pinpoint the time
frame during which a young person needs a “confidence boost” and is most vulnerable to a specific configuration of subliminal cues and triggers. The data are then used
to match each emotional phase with appropriate ad messaging for the maximum probability of guaranteed sales.

• Chess — easy for AI,
hard for humans
• Perception/movement
— easy even for
infants, hard for AI
Moravec’s
Paradox
New Yorker Sep 28th, 2020. Liana Finck, p59

"it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of
a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility”

As Moravec writes:

Ch

Encoded in the large, highly evolved sensory and motor portions of the human brain is a billion years of experience about the nature of the world and how to survive in it.
The deliberate process we call reasoning is, I believe, the thinnest veneer of human thought, effective only because it is supported by this much older and much more
powerful, though usually unconscious, sensorimotor knowledge. We are all prodigious olympians in perceptual and motor areas, so good that we make the difficult look
easy. Abstract thought, though, is a new trick, perhaps less than 100 thousand years old. We have not yet mastered it. It is not all that intrinsically difficult; it just seems
so when we do it.[3]

A compact way to express this argument would be:

We should expect the difficulty of reverse-engineering any human skill to be roughly proportional to the amount of time that skill has been evolving in animals.

The oldest human skills are largely unconscious and so appear to us to be effortless.

Therefore, we should expect skills that appear effortless to be difficult to reverse-engineer, but skills that require effort may not necessarily be difficult to engineer at all.

  • 4. http://timeandquantummechanics.comArtificial Intelligence/John Ashmead Philcon 2020 History • Talos (way old) • Antikythera (200 BC) • Mechanical Turk (1770-1854) • Difference Engine (1833) Mechanical Turk: https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/tech-history/dawn-of-electronics/untold-history-of-ai-charles-babbage-and-the-turk In 2014, a study by Carman and Evans argued for a new dating of approximately 200 BC based on identifying the start-up date on the Saros Dial as the astronomical lunar month that began shortly after the new moon of 28 April 205 BC.[15][16] Moreover, according to Carman and Evans, the Babylonian arithmetic style of prediction fits much better with the device's predictive models than the traditional Greek trigonometric style.[15] A study by Paul Iversen published in 2017 reasons that the prototype for the device was indeed from Rhodes, but that this particular model was modified for a client from Epirus in northwestern Greece; Iversen argues that it was probably constructed no earlier than a generation before the shipwreck, a date supported also by Jones.[46] The Turk, also known as the Mechanical Turk or Automaton Chess Player (German: Schachtürke, "chess Turk"; Hungarian: A Török), was a fake chess-playing machine constructed in the late 18th century. From 1770 until its destruction by fire in 1854 it was exhibited by various owners as an automaton, though it was eventually revealed to be an elaborate hoax.[1] Constructed and unveiled in 1770 by Wolfgang von Kempelen (Hungarian: Kempelen Farkas; 1734–1804) to impress the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, the mechanism appeared to be able to play a strong game of chess against a human opponent, as well as perform the knight's tour, a puzzle that requires the player to move a knight to occupy every square of a chessboard exactly once. The Turk was in fact a mechanical illusion that allowed a human chess master hiding inside to operate the machine. With a skilled operator, the Turk won most of the games played during its demonstrations around Europe and the Americas for nearly 84 years, playing and defeating many challengers including statesmen such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Benjamin Franklin. The device was later purchased in 1804 and exhibited by Johann Nepomuk Mälzel. The chess masters who secretly operated it included Johann Allgaier, Boncourt, Aaron Alexandre, William Lewis, Jacques Mouret, and William Schlumberger, but the operators within the mechanism during Kempelen's original tour remain a mystery.

  • 35. http://timeandquantummechanics.comArtificial Intelligence/John Ashmead Philcon 2020 • Chess — easy for AI, hard for humans • Perception/movement — easy even for infants, hard for AI Moravec’s Paradox New Yorker Sep 28th, 2020. Liana Finck, p59 "it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility” As Moravec writes: Ch Encoded in the large, highly evolved sensory and motor portions of the human brain is a billion years of experience about the nature of the world and how to survive in it. The deliberate process we call reasoning is, I believe, the thinnest veneer of human thought, effective only because it is supported by this much older and much more powerful, though usually unconscious, sensorimotor knowledge. We are all prodigious olympians in perceptual and motor areas, so good that we make the difficult look easy. Abstract thought, though, is a new trick, perhaps less than 100 thousand years old. We have not yet mastered it. It is not all that intrinsically difficult; it just seems so when we do it.[3] A compact way to express this argument would be: We should expect the difficulty of reverse-engineering any human skill to be roughly proportional to the amount of time that skill has been evolving in animals. The oldest human skills are largely unconscious and so appear to us to be effortless. Therefore, we should expect skills that appear effortless to be difficult to reverse-engineer, but skills that require effort may not necessarily be difficult to engineer at all.
