Machine intelligence is improving rapidly, to the point that the scientist of the future may not even be human! In fact, in more and more fields, learning machines are already outperforming humans.

Artificial intelligence exper t Jürgen Schmidhuber isn’t able to predict the future accurately, but he explains how machines are getting creative, why 40’000 years of Homo sapiens-dominated history are about to end soon, and how we can try to make the best of what lies ahead.

7:15 as you are interacting with the world, you are observing more and more data.
All the time, your brain is trying to find novel, unknown regularities in the data, trying to make sense of the world, trying to be a better predictor. … encode the data.
You can measure any novel regularity as follows: before you have discovered the regularities through some sort of learning algorithm you need so many computational resources to encode the data.
After having discovered the regularities, you need less computational resources, because any regularities mean that you can save computational resources such as synapses or computation time.
You can measure that, that’s a real number.
