Deep learning deep learning The deeper you learn, the smarter your A. I. Deep learning, big data Big model, accuracy We must, we must, we must go deeper to unlockThese words were written by an Artificial Intelligence program created by OpenAI.
This is a collection of my thoughts over the past two months. I want to be clear that I’ve been incredibly interested and involved in all of this for the last 2 years, but I’m especially excited about this announcement because deep learning has become so popular, so deep, so mature that it’s ready to take a big step forward in our quest to make smarter machines.
Why does it take so much effort to get from good general intelligence to the human level? Because A.I. is extraordinarily hard. Every popular A.I. is a machine that uses deep learning. But none of them do it as well as we need them to, at scale, in every aspect of their design. Today, most deep learning systems work at a very low level. What we actually need are systems that can learn and make decisions like humans do.
However, even after decades of work, we still have many problems that deep learning cannot solve: language translation, image recognition, machine translation, medical diagnosis, the understanding of speech and writing, and much more.
This is why we need general-purpose systems, powered by general-purpose A.I. that learns in the same way that humans do. For decades, the field of artificial intelligence (AI) has focused on one subfield of artificial intelligence (AI), a subset of computer science called artificial general intelligence (AGI). However, there are two problems that have arisen from the focus on the narrow subfield of AI: There is limited data.
There are no general-purpose A.I. systems. Deep learning is changing this.
Now, people are starting to see the potential for general purpose A.I. in the deep learning field, and that has the potential to revolutionize machine learning in the same way that the work of Giannis Stoitsis has revolutionized machine learning in the field of image processing.
Deep learning is a framework that lets A.I. learn much as humans do. This has huge benefits for A.I.
Deep learning, as we all know, is a subset of machine learning. A.I. works best when you put the right data under it, in the right place, at the right time, with the right type of pattern matching. The more you train your machine learning system to learn, the more complex and interesting the system becomes. The large data sets we have today allow machine learning systems to have incredible performance in areas that they weren’t able to handle before.
This is great, but it also means that machine learning can be extremely challenging. What is the real barrier to entry to deep learning? It’s the resources to train these systems to learn to do the tasks we need them to do, with the right amount of deep learning and the right amount of data. This, in a nutshell, is the A.I. research problem. But it’s really not that difficult to solve, with the right kinds of tools and data.
The challenge is that to train these deep learning systems, we have to throw away a lot of our work in building a general-purpose A.I. system. Right now, these deep learning systems are good at learning in limited domains. But, because of this limited ability, a lot of the work we’ve done in building general-purpose A.I. systems isn’t usable to us anymore.
To train a deep learning system to learn to do all of the things we need it to, we have to think differently. There are a lot of challenges that need to be addressed:
Trying to figure out the domain space that a system can understand. Training a large deep learning system to learn the types of patterns that we need.
-Training the large deep learning systems.
-Learning about new material on the web.
-Learning to understand dialogue.
-Learning to use dialogue in all of its forms.
-Learning about different point of views.
In the end, we need to advance, General-Purpose A.I. Systems
Building a deep learning system that does all of these things is far more difficult than building a general-purpose A.I. system. However, while we’re working to make general-purpose A.I., there is hope for getting machines to learn and make decisions in ways that will make life easier for all of us.
