AI Art (Part 1 - Text) with Shane Neeley (S5 E1)

1/17/2022
Warning: Shane does talk about some of his early career working in labs doing experiments with animals, so if you want to skip this detail, please fast forward to 1:30. New for 2022, I will be exploring a number of examples of AI Art using a range of generative algorithms to achieve the creation of AI Art. In this episode I discuss with Data Scientist Shane Neeley, who has himself experimented with generative algorithms to contribute sections of his books. I recorded this episode towards the end of last year, but it seems even more relevant than ever for 2022. AI Art take many forms, and in future episodes I will explore other artistic mediums that AI can contribute. However this episode, and Shane's experience has been with text generation. Shane is an experienced Data Scientist with a demonstrated history of working in the software industry. Skilled in many aspects of biomedical and clinical application development. Well rounded machine learning background that includes aspects of natural language processing, document classification, sentiment analysis and computer vision. Strong engineering professional who graduated from Rice University. Shane also give some great insights and advice on how to get started in Data Science and build a career in AI and Machine Learning. He also gives some guidance on how to get started with generative algorithms. You can see Shane's linkedin profile here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/neeley1/ and visit his website at https://www.shaneneeley.com In future episodes, I will be exploring other forms of AI Art, from Music, Images, Videos and Films. I will also look at how these technologies can also be applied more into the world of Science, Innovation & Invention.

Are we being fooled? (S2 E4)

8/14/2020
This is our first Byte-sized-Bits edition (less than 10mins). The topic is GPT-3 and are we being fooled by its amazing capabilities. The area of natural language processing and understanding with AI is hugely important and still developing, but the advances we are seeing with these generative algorithms to create new content and materials is stunning. But we are being fooled by the capabilities. These algorithms are not as intelligence as we might think. Check out OpenAI and GPTcrush.com for more information on GPT-3.

The Definition of Artificial Intelligence - Part 1 of 3 (S1 E5)

7/3/2020
This is Part 1 of 3 in a series discussing the Definition of Artificial Intelligence. In this first part we highlight the challenges that prevent us not having a universally accepted standard definition of AI. We need to acknowledge that the journey to advanced AI is actually a Continuum of Intelligence (the title of my soon to be published Book), and that mapping the journey may be more beneficial than having a status definition. I introduce an alternative to a single definition that might become more useful, the Index of Intelligence that will help us map both the capabilities and capacity of AI agents. Part 2 will discuss in much more detail the Index of Intelligence, and Part 3 will discuss other fundamental capabilities of intelligence, including the misunderstanding and potential role of consciousness in delivering advanced AI solutions.
