IamA two recent Artificial intelligence graduates who decided to create a new knowledge HUB which helps anyone to understand AI concepts

Apr 30th 2017 by AIcompany • 10 Questions • 6007 Points

We majored in artificial intelligence at Hong Kong and Amsterdam university and discovered that there are no solutions or certificates outside of these rather expensive and specific studies. Useful information about AI is scattered all over the internet, and thats why we came up with the idea of an AI platform, with specification for different industries. We want to make this information accessible to the public and achieved this by summarizing our knowledge and best practices into an easy to understand, fun, and engaging 24 page document combined with an extensive industry overview and frameworks for managers!

Edit: I aim to answer all the questions, so please keep them coming! But expect some delay in my response.

Edit 2: We received a lot of valuable feedback and will invest a lot of effort in fixing the issues that some users suggested. Please keep in mind that we aim to continuously update our website and want to work together to make this project a success!

Edit 3: We received a lot of offers from users to help us with improving our content, some of these replies got buried unfortunately. This motivates us to incorporate all your help so we can improve AIcompany even more! This is why i created /r/AIcompany where we encourage everybody to post their feedback about our company. Suggestions are more than welcome and we are more than willing to cooperate since we do feel that there is a lot of potential in this project based on the majority of positive reactions and willingness to participate!

Q:

If feel that there is a lot of misinformation going around about AI these days. What are some common myths about the dangers of artificial intelligence, and what do you think are some real dangers of making one?

A:

The end goal of the artificial intelligence might be to create a self-conscious mind, but the current state of the industry is creating algorithms that are replacing repeatable tasks. You teach a bot to replace tasks and see patterns which can replace a lot of jobs. The biggest danger of this is the replacement of ordinary jobs for which people might be specifically employed which can increase the unemployment rate drastically . CPGgrey made a interesting video about it a while ago (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pq-S557XQU) and i think this is the biggest danger that we will see in the near future.


Q:

Even your definition of p-value is incorrect. The p-value is the probability of observing data AT LEAST as extreme as this given the null. Fix it.

A:

We will look into it!


Q:

What city is your company based out of?

A:

We are currently working from Amsterdam and Hong kong


Q:

Hello! Hope I am not too late to the party!

  1. Did you guys study AI in Asia? How is the AI scene is Asia?
  2. For a traditional software engineer - likes of who does full-stack web dev at best - how do you guys feel AI is going to affect the industry? How is this going to change how the industry works?

Thanks!

A:

You are never late to the party. I personally studied in Amsterdam and most major cities in the Netherlands have devoted AI master programme's which creates a big and accessible community. There are some differences between the cities and most of them have a favor towards different applications. I will ask my partner about Hong kong but he's switched of now (7 hour time difference) but his general perception is positive!

Machine learning and AI will affect all different branches and not just minimum wage or repetitive work, the software industry is filled with people designing algorithms to replace the job of their colleagues.


Q:

How do I access this knowledge hub? :D

A:

You can simply download our AIbible at this link https://www.aicompany.co/content-learning/. We hope you can learn something from it! Let us know what you think about it too, all feedback is more than welcome!


Q:

How did you 2 meet?

A:

We are both Dutch, but met while studying in Asia. There was a quick connection on the topic of Artificial Intelligence of course!


Q:

Will you charge a small amount of money 💵 to read this info? If not why not?

A:

Our learning materials are completely free, we also devised a framework which can be implemented by mangers and an extensive industry overview. We do charge money for the certificate, but this will often by covered by your employing company or can be seen as a good investment in your resume.


Q:

How often are you on reddit and what are your favorite subreddits?

A:

I devoted a lot of time to todayilearned and found out that I was able to provide a 'useless' fact for almost every conversation topic. I also like worldnews for the fact that it combines a lot of different news sources, but i avoid the comment section.


Q:

How long do you think it will be until somebody has an AI do an AMA?

A:

It will basically be like cleverbot.com but i doubt that people will find it entertaining, but who knows it can be sooner than we think. There are already a lot of disguised bots on reddit.


Q:

What woud an AI's favorite flavor of ice cream be?

A:

I think it will most likely avoid most water, but if it would be a westworld-like AI it would most likely try out as many different flavors before making a decision resulting in a deep hate for icecream
