Lex Fridman keeps landing the “big fish” on his podcast.

This time, he sits down with Noam Chomsky.

Noam Chomsky is one of the greatest minds of our time and is one of the most cited scholars in history. He is a linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist. He has spent over 60 years at MIT and recently also joined the University of Arizona. This conversation is part of the Artificial Intelligence podcast. 

Lex Fridman interviews Gilbert Strang on Linear Algebra, Deep Learning, Teaching, and MIT OpenCourseWare.

Gilbert Strang is a professor of mathematics at MIT and perhaps one of the most famous and impactful teachers of math in the world. His MIT OpenCourseWare lectures on linear algebra have been viewed millions of times. This conversation is part of the Artificial Intelligence podcast.

This episode of the AI Show compares deep learning vs. machine learning.

You’ll learn how the two concepts compare and how they fit into the broader category of artificial intelligence. During this demo we will also describe how deep learning can be applied to real-world scenarios such as fraud detection, voice and facial recognition, sentiment analytics, and time series forecasting.

Eurovision is annual event in Europe and had I not lived in Europe to experience it, I doubt I would be able to understand it.

Essentially, European countries compete in a Europop contest every year. The winner becomes a national hero and their song gets a lot of airplay.

Songs in the contest have a distinct tone and flavor. It’s hard for me to quantify, yet an AI pretty much nailed it.

The project team fed hundreds of Eurovision songs – melodies and lyrics – into a neuron network. Then, algorithms produced thousands of new tunes and lines of verse, from which a few musical units were carefully selected and “welded” into a song.

Lyrics below the video.

Lyrics:
I am lost when i’m with you
There’s no hesitation in your eyes
Baby bye bye bye
Oh bye bye bye
Baby by myself the stain
grows more obvious

In this pain of the bird who’s flying
Over roses of sadness
Baby bye bye bye
Oh bye bye bye
Baby summer’s gone
It’s gone for the both of us

And tears will always have wet eyes
I’ll cry but I’ll survive
On a mission
I will let you go forever

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears
Don’t give up on a precious summer
Rolling in the moonshine
Baby by bye-bye
Oh by bye-bye
Baby let me go
So close to the holy ground

Tears will always have wet eyes
I’ll cry but I’ll survive
On a mission
I will let you go forever

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Don’t break my heart – It’s powerless
This magic is in spite of me
Don’t keep me hanging on

Don’t break my heart – It’s powerless
This magic is in spite of me
Don’t keep me hanging on
keep me hanging on
keep me hanging on
I will let you go forever
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Natural language processing (NLP) powered by deep learning is about to change the game for many organizations interested in AI, thanks in particular to BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers).

Watch this webinar if you want to learn how BERT will power a new wave of language-based applications, from sentiment analysis to automatic text summarization to similarity assessment and more.
