Making Robotic Intelligence More Like Our Intelligence
The other day, I posted a piece about Danko Nikolic’s theory of Practopoiesis. That got me digging into more of his work, which in turn, led me to this TEDx talk on making smarter robots.
The part to tune into here is the distinction Danko makes between systems that have a relatively small number of learning algorithms that are supported by massive amounts of stored information, and systems like our brain that invest in massive quantities of different kinds of learning algorithms. That treasure trove of learning algorithmic intelligence is the gift of hundreds of millions of years of evolutionary process and we (and the rest of our biological world) are its lucky recipients.
Great talk and it’s just twelve minutes.
