Paradigm Shifting | 10 differences between artificial intelligence and human intelligence

In this video I will explain what the main differences are between the current approaches to artificial intelligence and human intelligence.

For this I first explain how neural networks work and in which sense they mimic the human brain.

I then go through the ten most relevant differences that are: Form and function, size, connectivity, power consumption, architecture, activation potential, speed, learning technique, structure, and precision.

Finally I express my opinion that the benefit of research in artificial intelligence is not the reproduce human-like intelligence, but instead to produce types of intelligence unlike our own that complement our own abilities.

The sacred and the scientific clash on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea

Over a thousand years ago, Polynesians followed the stars in the Mauna Kea sky on their path to Hawaii. Those stars are now of interest to astronomers, who believe the mountain’s summit is the perfect spot to build a giant, cutting-edge telescope. But native Hawaiians view that peak as a sacred space. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports for the second in our series about the controversy.

Forgiveness may not come easy, especially if you were hurt in a significant way. But it’s an important part of moving on from painful experiences, and it will ultimately give you greater mental health and happiness.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to forget. It does, however, mean that you need to stop holding on to feelings of anger and resentment.

Forgiveness is the next logical step after choosing to let go of your hurt and your sense of victimhood. Without forgiveness, you may never fully let go of the pain.

Forgiving your friend also requires you to forgive yourself. If you had any part in the incident, or if you ended up saying something out of anger, you need to let that go as well.

Once you’ve forgiven everyone involved, you’ll be free. With time you will move past the painful experience completely.
