In Episode 2 of Eye on AI, I talk to Jack Clark, Strategy and Communications Director at OpenAI, a nonprofit A.I. research company, in a wide-ranging conversation off of things highlighted in Jack’s popular Import AI newsletter. Topics include whether A.I. will be used to trade cryptocurrencies; about A.I. used to speed up the creation of A.I. systems and how long will it be before A.I. does it all; evolution strategies as an alternative to reinforcement learning; the great global divide between ‘low compute’ and ‘high compute’ camps, with only a handful of companies and nation states controlling the bulk of the computing power; and when will the A.I. healthcare revolution finally begin as well as what does A.I. see when it looks at our tongues.
