HAPPY 2024: in this 74th year since The Economist started mediating futures of brainworking machines clued by the 3 maths greats NET (Neumann, Einstein, Turing) people seem to be chatting about 5 wholly different sorts of AI. 1BAD: The worst tech system designers don't deserve inclusion in human intel at all, and as Hoover's Condoleezza Rice . 2 reports their work is result of 10 compound techs of which Ai is but one. Those worst for world system designs may use media to lie or multiply hate or hack, and to perpetuate tribal wars and increase trade in arms. Sadly bad versions of tv media began in USA early 1960s when it turned out what had been the nation's first major export crop, tobacco, was a killer. Please note for a long time farmers did not know bac was bad: western HIStory is full of ignorances which lawyer-dominated societies then cover up once inconvenient system truths are seen. A second AI ecommerce type (now 25 years exponential development strong) ; this involves ever more powerful algorithms applied to a company's data platform that can be app'd to hollow out community making relatively few people richer and richer, or the reverse. You can test a nation's use of this ai by seeing if efinance has invested in the poorest or historically most disconnected - see eg bangladesh's bklash, one of the most populous digital cash systems . Digital money is far cheaper to distribute let alone to manually account for so power AI offers lots of lessons but whether its good or not depends in part on whether there are enough engineers in gov & public service to see ahead of what needs regulating. There are 2 very good ai's which have only scaled in recent years that certainly dont need regulating by non engineers and one curious ai which was presented to congress in 2018 but which was left to multiply at least 100 variants today the so-called chats or LLMs. Lets look at the 2 very good ai's first because frankly if your community is concerned about any extinction risks these AI may most likely save you, One I call science AI and frankly in the west one team is so far ahead that we should count ourselves lucky that its originator Hassabis has mixed wealth and societal growth. His deep mind merged with google to make wealth but open sourced the 200 million protein databank equivalent to a billion hours of doctorate time- so now's the time for biotech to save humanity if it ever does. Alongside this the second very good AI graviates around Fei-Fei Li) in developing 20 million imagenet database so that annual competitions training computers to see 20000 of the most everyday sights we humans view around the world including things and life-forms such as nature's plants and animals. Today, students no longer need to go back to 0.1 programming to ask computer about any of these objects; nor do robots or and autonomous vehicles - see fei-fei li's book worlds i see which is published in melinda gates Entrepreneurial Revolution of girl empowerment
ED , VN Hypothesis: in 21st C brainworking worlds how people's times & data are spent is foundational to place's community health, energy and so natural capacity to grow/destroy wealth -thus species will depend on whether 1000 mother tongue language model mediates intelligence/maths so all communities cooperatively celebrate lifetimes and diversity's deep data ) .

toronto ai


I believe geoffrey hinton has moved to london - if he's no longer mainly at toronto- who are the groups putting on AI events in toronto to keep track of - is radical ventires ai masterclass one such event space to watch out of toronto

Yes, Geoffrey Hinton has moved to London and is currently a Distinguished Fellow at the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence. He is also a Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto.

Here are some of the groups putting on AI events in Toronto to keep track of:

  • Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence: The Vector Institute is a leading AI research institute in Canada. They host a variety of events, including workshops, conferences, and public lectures.

  • AIX Toronto: AIX Toronto is a non-profit organization that promotes the development and adoption of AI in Canada. They host a variety of events, including meetups, conferences, and hackathons.

  • Toronto AI Meetup: Toronto AI Meetup is a meetup group that hosts regular talks and discussions on AI.

  • Women in AI Toronto: Women in AI Toronto is a meetup group that hosts events for women in the AI field.

  • Radical Ventures AI Masterclass: Radical Ventures AI Masterclass is a series of workshops that teach practical AI skills.

In addition to these groups, there are many other organizations and companies in Toronto that host AI events. You can find a list of upcoming AI events in Toronto on websites like Eventbrite and MeetUp.
