Will Computers Ever Think Like Human Beings? – with Vint Cerf
VINT CERF – the GODFATHER of the World Wide Web and KEY contributor to the OSI 7-layer Data Stack, better known as TCP/IP, that the Internet runs on. He is author of many contributions of Network Protocols and Papers for approval and incorporation into TCP/IP as an established protocol – he helped construct the network we know today as the World Wide Web.
The rise of artificial intelligence has seen computers beating chess experts and performing incredibly complex tasks. But why can’t they think the same way we do? Watch the Q&A: https://youtu.be/Gwa38tzo2Nc
We have built incredibly powerful, multi-layered, neural networks capable of learning incredibly quickly and carrying out seemingly impossible tasks, but they still can’t always tell the difference between a polar bear and a dishwasher. In this talk ‘Father of the Internet’ Vint Cerf explores why it is so challenging for any computer-based system, however elaborate, to reason in the same way we do.
Vinton G. Cerf is vice president and Chief Internet Evangelist for Google. He contributes to global policy development and continued spread of the Internet. Widely known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,”
Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. He has served in executive positions at MCI, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and on the faculty of Stanford University. This talk was filmed in the Ri on 9 March 2020.
