AI & innovation articles
This is not a time for an international arms race in AI. Rather, it is a time for collaboration across governments, corporate R&D, academia, and startups. It is a time to push the frontier of AI and space for climate science and humankind.
Machine learning systems can be massively useful, but also fail critically in unforeseen ways. We need systems engineering in synergy with experimentation and innovation.
Healthcare is ripe for the power of machine learning, but only with the scientific rigor of causal reasoning.
Black-box AI can be extremely powerful yet difficult to understand and trust. White-box AI is explainable and insightful, but sometimes at the cost of predictive power. How do we mend the gap?
Causal reasoning is a necessary ingredient to human-level artificial intelligence. We’re not there, yet.
Also presentations and lectures, podcasts and panels, etc.
