The future of AI: Hype, deep learning and where to next?

Are we in a new AI bubble or will deep learning (DL) deliver on all its promises? Due mainly to deep learning, the past decade has seen incredible, exciting and somewhat unexpected progress in AI. Yet, it’s not that long ago that lack of funding almost stopped AI in its tracks. This now famous period – called the ‘AI Winter’ – was caused by businesses discovering that state-of-the-art AI systems were brittle and difficult to scale. Recently, the old debate about the best approach for achieving [real] AI seems to be reignited as some DL systems fail to live up to the original hype. A growing number of AI researchers think we should take a fresh look at both symbolic and connectionist architectures, and even explore more hybrid solutions.

This talk by visiting guest Dr. John Flackett explores what critics of DL are concerned about and whether we’re in another AI bubble. John uses his AI research experience, his time debating AI approaches during the ‘AI Winter’, and his current work at AiLab to look at the future of AI and what it means for deep learning. Are there approaches from the past that can help propel the AI of the future?

This event is part of the Brisbane Artificial Intelligence Meetup events hosted by Dr. Natalie Rens. John will be the keynote speaker presenting on Artificial Intelligence.
