Machine Learning for Video Games.

Thought this would be a great way to help people understand machine learning via video games.  If you aren’t sure what machine learning is it is a subset of artificial intelligence.  The videos go from the very beginning where the character learns from the very start of how to play the video game.  Then the character gets better and better.

Artificial Intelligence Risks

There are many opinions on the topic of artificial intelligence risks and dangers.  On one side there are people saying if AI is not regulated it could be the end of the human race.  On the other side people are saying we do not have anything to worry about.

Artificial intelligence quotes

This quote is a good summation of what is happening.  AI is in its infancy stages.  It is maturing and evolving very rapidly.  AI has already done things people thought would take another 10 years.  As artificial intelligence matures and goes from being an infant to a teenager how will it change? Once AI believes it is smarter than those that created it how will it react?  Anyone have rebellious teenagers?

It seems it would be better to be safe than sorry.  People who are worried about AI include Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk.  So you have the richest person in the world, one of the smartest people in the world and basically the real life Iron Man.  Probably people we should listen to.  If artificial intelligence is regulated and nothing happens then who cares.  If AI is not regulated and issues arise such as mentioned by Elon Musk, Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking we are all going to care.

“With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon.  In all those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it’s like, yea, he’s sure he can control the demon.  Didn’t work out.” ~Elon Musk.

Machine Learning Supply Chain Quotes.

  • “Everything that civilisation has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this intelligence is magnified by the tools that AI may provide, but the eradication of war, disease, and poverty would be high on anyone’s list. Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last.”
    ~Stephen Hawking
  • “We can’t really predict what might happen next because superintelligent A.I. may not just think faster than humans, but in ways that are completely different. It may have motivations — feelings, even — that we cannot fathom. It could rapidly solve the problems of aging, of human conflict, of space travel. We might see a dawning utopia. Or we might see the end of the universe.” ~Rick Paulas
  • “The ultimate search engine would understand everything in the world. It would understand everything that you asked it and give you back the exact right thing instantly. You could ask ‘what should I ask Larry?’ and it would tell you.” ~Larry Page
  • “I’m increasingly inclined to think there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish.”
    ~Elon Musk
  • “Artificial Intelligence will be rampant in the digital supply chain” ~Dave Waters
  • “Artificial intelligence is based on the assumption that the mind can be described as some kind of formal system manipulating symbols that stand for things in the world. Thus it doesn’t matter what the brain is made of, or what it uses for tokens in the great game of thinking. Using an equivalent set of tokens and rules, we can do thinking with a digital computer, just as we can play chess using cups, salt and pepper shakers, knives, forks, and spoons. Using the right software, one system (the mind) can be mapped onto the other (the computer).” ~George Johnson
  • “Be a supply chain innovator. Research Internet of Things (IoT); Machine Learning; Deep Learning, Big Data, Blockchain, Drones, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence…” ~EverythingSupplyChain.com

Supply Chain Optimization

Supply Chain Optimization is key in making a supply chain organization more efficient and productive.  A company can use technology for optimization but don’t forget to improve processes as well.  Using technology to optimize processes may take awhile and will cost a significant amount of money.  Be sure to first look into ways to improve the current process by taking out wasted steps.  Also look into the process discipline of the organization so the information going into your supply chain system can be fully utilized for your supply chain optimization projects.

Supply Chain Optimization Quotes

  • “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” ~ Bill Gates, founder and former CEO of Microsoft
  • “In many cases, jobs that used to be done by people are going to be able to be done through automation. I don’t have an answer to that. That’s one of the more perplexing problems of society.” ~ John Sculley, former CEO of Apple Computers
  • “For the blue-collar worker, the driving force behind change was factory automation using programmable machine tools. For the office worker, it’s office automation using computer technology: enterprise-resource-planning systems, groupware, intranets, extranets, expert systems, the Web, and e-commerce.” ~ Tom Peters
  • “SpaceX is only 12 years old now. Between now and 2040, the company’s lifespan will have tripled. If we have linear improvement in technology, as opposed to logarithmic, then we should have a significant base on Mars, perhaps with thousands or tens of thousands of people.” ~ Elon Musk
  • “The human being is a very poorly designed machine tool. The human being excels in coordination. He excels in relating perception to action. He works best if the entire human being, muscles, senses, and mind, is engaged in the work.”

And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you’ve completely failed.” ~ Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple Computers
  • “There might be new technology, but technological progress itself was nothing new – and over the years it had not destroyed jobs, but created them.”  ~ Margaret Thatcher
  • “Automation provides us with wondrous increases of production and information, but does it tell us what to do with the men the machines displace? Modern industry gives us the capacity for unparalleled wealth – but where is our capacity to make that wealth meaningful to the poor of every nation?”  ~ Robert Kennedy
  • “Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.”  ~ Louis Gerstner, fromer CEO of IBM
