Episode 18 - AI Gone Psychopathic, Embellishment vs Fact

An article about MIT research claims that they've built a psychopathic AI. We think the article is a little off base, and try to determine what's actually going on. We cover related examples, of Microsofts Twitter Bot learning from the worst people, and a cool Google Image Program that sees animals everywhere.

I also check in with Christian Hubbs, host of Artifically Intelligent, about his podcast. I was interviewed for todays episode, so check that out!

Also check out their Twitter.

I also define a Convolutional Neural Net, but only on the highest of high level! More on that could come in future episodes.
See a related and recent interview of Yann Lecun (he was my professor in machine learning class at NYU)
