We invite AI experts to present and discuss topics relevant to the scope of the CAI. The colloquium takes place on Wednesdays from 11:00-12:00 at the Winterthur Campus of ZHAW.
|17.11.||TS O1.13||Prof. Dr. Christoph von der Malsburg||How can kids learn so much faster than transformers?||Recent breakthroughs with neural AI seem to come very near to human-level intelligence. A remaining problem, however, is deep learning technology's tremendous thirst for data. It would take a human 10,000 years to read the amount of text used to train GPT-3, and the recently announced GPT-4 will, with as many parameters as the human brain has synapses, likely require 500 times as much data, equivalent to millions of years of single human consumption. Yet, a child needs a mere couple of decades of 'data taking' to develop full intelligence! How is that possible? A few rather obvious observations on cognitive processes and the way the brain is generated under genetic control point the way to a new paradigm beyond current AI.|
