Professor Naftali Tishby is a professor of Computer Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is a Global leader in machine learning research and computational neuroscience and his numerous ex-students serve at key academic and industrial research positions all over the world.
In this week’s show, Naftali discusses his breakthrough in understanding how machines learn. He calls this the “bottleneck technique”.
During our chat, we draw parallels in how we humans learn and the lessons we can draw from his findings in how education might work in the future.
We go off on a tangent after we discuss how part of learning is forgetting. We explore the gifts of ADD and ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and how if understood early people can harness the gifts and thrive.
We discuss the future of humanity, the history of machine learning and the present of education.
It is a truly fascinating listen.
Some Interesting points:
4.21 – Then there was a mystery, what can be learned and how can they do it?
3 different directions:
How do we understand the behaviour or networks
What are the limits? What can be learned? – How do they do it? How much power needed etc.
How does the brain learn, animals and human
The machine learns like a human does?
Is it a framework to learn more?
The ADD gift
The future of Education?
1:01 Ai and the future?
1.06 Humanity must evolve with Ai
