Hello fellow ATS'ers -
I am looking to chat with other ATS'ers who have a background with AI, deep learning, big data, etc. Personally I am interested in hybrid deep learning, and video applications combining static visual, short term patterns, and long term temporal clues however this thread is open to all AI topics ranging from common to esoteric.
In addition to a technical thread, any non AI interested in learning or demystification of AI, please feel free to ask questions - I suspect that since this thread is not political, it has a chance of self policing in a way that should be welcoming of "on topic" questions.
OK, I will start with an icebreaker - What is your favorite AI platform and why?

You lost me at AI. All "AI" is replicated from humans, learning script is hard but it is based on human ingenuity, not a computer.
In scripting the word 'If' is very powerful and that is what makes an 'AI' work, they do not make decisions for themselves yet...when machines start writing their own scripts, that would be true AI.

Unfortunately, there's a lot on ATS who have no actual experience with AI, but they read pop sci articles and think they know it all.
I've taken a couple AI classes and read a few papers, plus written my own. I would say the thing that strikes me most about AI is how inefficient it is to get to an answer. I'm not that good with neural nets, but I've used genetic algorithms a ton. They always strike me as being super slow to get to a meaningful result.

So after finally understanding what IS a computer, I came to the conclusion it's not the place where hard AI will be possible. You can't prove a negative so my conclusion is based on intuition. Computer bits are like an arrangement of rocks in a field. No matter how you arrange the rocks, they will always be just an arrangement of rocks. And rocks all have the same level of meaning. I think human intelligence is more than just our thoughts. I think our brains are like yogurt. We grow thoughts in the yogurt that have never been thought of before. And we attach emotions to our thoughts which helps us decide what is important.
