This Funzing Experience:

How can the human brain help AI development? Is AI as we know it actually not moving forward as quickly as we are led to believe? And what happens next? Join fractal brain theorist & author Wai H. Tsang, for a delving Funzing Talk - where we look further into how the Human Brain might have a continued effect on the future of A.I.

The creation of True AI will fundamentally transform the world, our lives, society and political economy. From reading the news headlines, we seem to be on the verge of this great transformation. But if we see beyond the hype then we realize that the recent ‘breakthroughs’ in AI are actually rather limited in potential, narrow in scope and not very ‘intelligent’.

We’ve seen AIs that can play mindless computer games with superhuman ability but fail miserably at even simple games like ‘Pac Man’, which require just a little planning ahead. We now have self driving cars that navigate highways competently 99% of the time but constantly require human intervention without which they even end up crashing into parked fire engines.

What then is the problem with existing AI? The most popular AI algorithm today, which is used in the so called deep learning variety of AI and which has been instrumental in much of the recent progress, has been touted by some as the path to human level intelligence.

What then is the way forward? What is missing from the current AI landscape? A scientific understanding of brain, mind and intelligence would surely be the key to the creation of true AI, even if simply through a process of reverse engineering. This would then be the missing factor and main impediment currently.

In this talk, Wai H. Tsang will address all of these issues and also present a novel way of looking at the brain and mind, using the idea of ‘Symmetry’, which some believe to be the key idea behind the whole enterprise of science and the notion of unified and universal scientific theories. He will show how the principle of Symmetry may be systematically applied towards the goal of understanding intelligence and the creation of the artificial kind.


Venue: Amersham Arms, New Cross

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
