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!
I also define a Convolutional Neural Net, but only on the highest of high level! More on that could come in future episodes.
