Yann LeCun on Star Craft AI

 

Yesterday, I attended the NYU's Future Labs AI Summit event.  Frankly, it wasn't what I expected.  Most of the "more technical" talks were very superficial on the state of the art: very little in depth details on any specific research.  The other talks were focused on the world of start ups focused on AI/Machine Learning based in NYC.  I think it was best suited for venture capitalists who wanted to take the afternoon off from work. 😉

The one slide I found interesting Yann LeCun's discussion on reinforcement learning used for Star Craft.  During his talk, he asserted the future of machine learning is in unsupervised learning. [Mic drop]
