Where Do We Go from Here?
All of these exciting new technologies are moving in the same direction – toward smarter, more powerful computers. Up until this point, we’ve seen the emergence of artificial intelligence as something “cute” or a field that ends up butting against certain intransigent obstacles. Now, those who understand machine learning and neural networks best are suggesting that all of that will soon change. Pioneers like Bill Gates and Elon Musk say we need to be thinking about specifically how these machines, which are starting to “think like us” are applied to the fabrics of our lives. Understanding the basic workings of machine learning setups is a good start.
