Something to Savor

I am linking you to a couple of items.

The first is an article about the latest announcement from Deepmind about their work on machine intelligence.

The second is a three minute video titled "Revolutionary uses for machine learning with Tensorflow."

It feels to me like I am sitting in the front row observing the biggest event in all of history, say the last 10,000 years, which is the development of machine intelligence. It is something to savor like an odor foretelling a wonderful flavor.

Update, July 7, 2018

Aaron Krumins wrote an excellent article about IBM's Project Debater that was published at extremetech.com on July 2, 2018.  

To better train machine intelligence to debate, perhaps it should be fed the contents of all of the textbooks that are used in every school in the world, while at the same feeding it the contents of all of the libaries, including text, image, video, and audio collections.  I would like to see this.
