We announced IBM Machine Learning last week, see here and here for event replays. I was interviewed as part of the launch. A good write up of what I said can be found on Silicon Angle. You can find the video of the interview at the end of this post.
This video has been shared on social media under various titles, but he one that got most impact is : The evolution of
#machinelearning: fusing human thought with algorithmic insights. It is probably because the interview contains a discussion of AI potential danger. Our take at IBM, and my take, is that we do not care much about artificial intelligence if the goal is to reproduce human cognition in order to replace it. Our take is to work on tools that help humans perform their tasks better. We speak of augmented intelligence, or assisted intelligence. Machine Learning, as one of the prominent artificial intelligence capability, is no exception.
I also discuss other, more near term, topics around machine learning and the forthcoming IBM offering for it. Here it is if you want to watch the full interview (about 18 minutes ):
