Amazing Innovation in 2017

End of year review: Amazing Innovations in 2017 

Innovation that will make you say "Wow! Really?" 

True/false quiz.
From an innovation perspective, the first decade of the 21st century was somewhat of an anticlimax: the big predictions in science fiction and future forecasting TV programmes did not happen. Then along came the second decade and things are really starting to take off - metaphorically and literally! It has been an amazing year for innovation. You might have to pinch yourself and say Wow did that really happen!?

Amazing Innovations in 2017

[You should get them all correct, as they are all posted in this blog.]

Inequality: more or less?

Is the Singularity Steering us Toward the Greatest Inequality in History?

It's a possibility. So far, the answer is yes: inequality will increase.



However, by definition, inequality is a relative measurement. So we can have increasing (relative) inequality, and at the same time have increasing (absolute) living standards for the 'average' person.

Some openly promote the idea of increasing basic living standards for all [which is a good policy, of course] while also talking about creating a new generation of trillionaires [not even in this spell-checker yet]. In other words, radically accelerating the ratio of inequality between the super-wealthy and the basic living salary. Imagine the richest having many orders of magnitude more wealth than the 'average' person. The ethical merits of this feel wrong, but the question is: Is it a good policy if it improves the lives of everyone? [A good topic for discussion.]

Science, technology and innovation will soon present the most obvious opportunities for equality.

The pioneers that seek massive financial rewards argue that their actions and outcomes are worth it. Yet, in a few decades, AI will drive the majority of science, technology and innovation -- not humans. In that era, there is indeed a clear argument for equality, for everyone.

Slow human machine learning experts need not apply. AI is faster and better.

Supercomputer rapidly builds better neural networks (e.g. AI for science). (Slow human machine learning experts need not apply.)

Auto-generated networks can be produced quickly, in a matter of hours as opposed to the months needed using conventional [manual] methods.

It is designed to evaluate, evolve, and optimize neural networks for unique datasets. Scaled across Titan's 18,688 GPUs, MENNDL can test and train thousands of potential networks for a science problem simultaneously, eliminating poor performers and averaging high performers until an optimal network emerges. The process eliminates much of the time-intensive, trial-and-error tuning traditionally required of machine learning experts.

Next... Summit could potentially deliver exascale-level performance for deep learning problems - the equivalent of a billion billion calculations per second.

Algorithm leverages Titan supercomputer to create high-performing deep neural networks

Human like interfaces; but not too human!

We need to be clear between "appearing to have emotions and empathy" and actually having them. The former helps AI to get along with people: to interface with them in a natural way. The latter is a dangerous route towards accidental AI Armageddon.
