Hi Homer - agree, it was enabled by low cost storage plus faster networks

elon also is advocating neuralink too right?

Elon is a.. character :-) He talks about the dangers of AI, while doing a lot to advance it because of it’s importance. And yes, he wants to augment human intelligence *directly* with it (neuralink
Janeane Tolomeo
58:18
good insight!
Jay Boisseau
59:10
Homer/Amy—yes, big data very much enabled by cheaper storage as well as cheaper compute and network (meaning more powerful for the same $ as tech advances on Moore’s Law-like scales)
Doug Norton
01:00:48
Agree, Elon is totally doing AI at both Tesla (Autopilot, a bad marketing name since only level 2 ADAS) and SpaceX. (self landing rocket booster)
R. D. Childers

Charlie, I think the negatives will be largely associated with the ability for people to turn loose of sunk cost.
Kathy

How much AI hype is being done in the name of AI and not a business use case?
Bill Kleinebecker
01:19:20
If the AI/ML fails for a while, the other parts of Digital Transformation will take the IoT data display the situation to humans through system like Zoom, Teams, etc. who, in their teams, using No-Code to get the same returns.

I’ve experienced that mid-level management can be the biggest impediments in getting AI deployed in large enterprises. How would you get these leaders on board?

Excellent overview.

Charlie, how do you keep your hedge fund AI from finding the same correlations as everyone else and all the funds move to the same investments?
Craig Wheeler

Probably even super-exponential.

Hey CharlieAre you familiar with the history of the MCC building and Cycorp?I agree with your timeline on silicon capability and the singularity.But I think that there's opportunities that would be complementary and different like combining artificial intelligence but utilize tools like online gaming for collaborationAnd then type something like blockchain technology so that we can Do a better job of documentation And and only solved problem once. Are you factoring for the unknown?

How about Kay Firth-Butterfield, Dr. Bruce Porter for future AI panelist?
Rajeev Jain
02:39:01
not a question, but just another plug for what Charlie said - The real world is analog (still). Till our emotions and reproduction are carbon-based it shall remain analog. So I agree with Charlie that future of computation is analog. Further, I will say it is so both in terms of computational power as well as in what all that computational power is intended to do.
