Dileep George spoke at the HLAI in Prague. He showed his understanding of the function of the six layers of the neo-cortex. It was very specific and detailed. Does anyone have references for Dileep’s theory of the neo-cortex.
He gave a wonderful example of the value of internal programs. Alice hammers a nail into the wall. Bob hammers a nail into the floor. Question: which nail is horizontal? In our mind’s eye we know the answer immediately using a quick pull from memory.
Also interesting was Marek Rosa’s talk Likewise he wants to learn/induce programs. He uses 100% non ANN techniques. Completely k-mean statistical learning over spacial and temporal data streams. His company GoodAI uses “Space Engineers” (availablle as a gaming product) as their training environment. It is the most complex environment I have ever seen used in AI training.
