23. Model Merging, Cross-Modal Coupling, Course Summary

Bayesian Story Merging

By using the probability model discovery previously studied, certain concepts and ideas can be analyzed and merged if similar.

Cross-Modal Coupling

By analyzing the correspondences between clusters of two sets of data, certain data subsets regular correspondences can be sorted out. According to Prof. Patrick Winston, this system of correspondences is very likely to be present in human intelligence.

Applications of AI

  • Scientific approach: understanding how AI works
  • Engineering approach: implementing AI applications

The most interesting applications are not to replace people with artificial intelligence but to work in tandem with people.

Using a lot of computing power and data becomes more common, but an interesting question is how little information is needed to work a certain problem.

Genesis system

The system translates stories into a internal language to understand stories and display them in diagrams. It allows to read stories on different levels, and use different “personas” to understand stories differently.

Humans may not be intelligent enough to build a machine that is as intelligent as them.
