Description

AI has been described as “Thor’s Hammer“ and “the new electricity.” But it’s also a bit of a mystery – even to those who know it best. We’ll connect with some of the world’s leading AI experts to explain how it works, how it’s evolving, and how it intersects with every facet of human endeavor. This podcast is produced by NVIDIA, the AI computing company. Multiple episodes are released every month.

Ep. 51: Live at GTC - Deep Learning Can Save Lives by Predicting Severe Weather
00:24:01
One of the things that makes the weather so dangerous is that it's so hard to predict. Tornadoes, hail, high winds and flash floods cause billions of dollars worth of property damage, and injure or kill hundreds of people in the United States each year. Knowing when storms may strike can save lives, and property. Our guest is part of a team at the National Center for Atmospheric Research that's doing just that. We spoke with David John Gagne, a postdoctoral fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research about his work with deep learning at the GPU Technology Conference in Silicon Valley this week.

Ep. 48: Sarcasm Detector Uses AI to Understand People at Their Funniest, Meanest
00:39:37
Sarcasm? On the Internet? You're kidding. But sarcasm is no joke. Long before today's sentiment analysis systems struggled to accurately understand human communication, people struggled to understand one another's sarcasm. Now, thanks to the work of Dr. Pushpak Bhattacharyya and his team computers are beginning to understand one of humanity's most challenging, and amusing, modes of communication. Dr. Bhattacharyya, director of IIT Patna, and a professor at the Computer Science and Engineering Department at IIT Bombay has spent the past few years using GPU-powered deep learning to detect sarcasm.

Ep. 45: How to Use AI, and Tinder, to Hack the Dating Scene
00:21:07
Love. The search for love. The search even for someone you just kind of like. It's been the subject of poems, novels, songs, you name it. For as long as humans have been around, they've been looking for love. But what if you could use AI to automate the process? To help you with everything from finding your true match, to swiping through all those not quite true matches. Oscar Alsing, our guest on this episode, will talk about how he's used AI, and Tinder, to do just that.

Ep. 44: Forget Polls, Here's What Street View, and AI, Can Tell You About How People Will Vote
00:30:32
Election polling is an inexact science. If you've been paying attention to American politics at all over the past year or two, you don't need us to tell you that. But what if instead of asking voters their opinions on the candidates or the issues you took a different approach, one that involves artificial intelligence... and cars. Joining us for this edition of the AI podcast is Timnit Gebru, a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research in New York and a newly minted PhD from the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Timnit is co-author of a paper titled "Using Deep learning and Street View to Estimate the Demographic Makeup of Neighborhoods Across the United States."

Ep. 37: Sergey Levine on How Deep Learning Will Unleash a Robotics Revolution
00:24:08
The robots that have taken on tasks in the real world - which is to say the world where physics apply - are primarily programmed to do a specific job, such as welding a joint in a car or sweeping up cat hair. So what if robots could learn, and take it a step further - what if they could teach themselves, and pass on their knowledge to other robots? Where could that take machines, and the notion of machine intelligence? And how fast could we get there? Those are the questions our guest Sergey Levine, an assistant professor at UC Berkeley's department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, is finding answers to.

Ep. 27: Danny Lange, of Unity Technologies, on How AI Can Enhance Gaming, and Gaming Can Enhance AI
00:14:03
Over the last few years data intensive machine learning solutions have supplanted rule-based software systems at many technology-based companies. Think about Amazon, Netflix, and Uber. But the gaming world hasn't exactly followed suit, at least not as quickly. Most games are still a delicate mix of hard-wired behavior in the form of traditional code, and somewhat more responsive behavior in the form of large collections of rules. Our guest, Danny Lange, VP of AI and Machine Learning at Unity Technologies, is taking a different tack, using deep learning to help with game creation, that subtle combination of art, story, and software.
