Ted Talks G129

by Mr.Augustin on March 12, 2014 - 7:00pm

1) The purpose of the speaker was to show that there is an equation for intelligence and what that equation is

2) The speaker audience was a ted talk assembly

3) yes the speaker dose accomplish there purpose he used a story to show how intelligent being explain the unknown then gives you the equation and show u a computer simulation using the equation to gain intelligence without any other programed instruction not even instruction on what to do the computer fingers out what to do and how on its own. The speaker showed a video explains the fundamentals of intelligences and raps with explain how intelligent works verses how we thank of intelligence.

1) You should really check out this Ted Talk, I think it holds relevance to the topic you’re looking at. It was a talk made by a man by the name of Jeff Bezos, he speaks on how peoples live might not solely be based on talent but rather the choices people make over their entire lifetime. During the speech he is addressing an audience at Princeton University. Personally, I believe that this speaker accomplishes his purpose. He grasps the attention of the audience and holds it until the very end of his talk. The topic is also one that is very interesting so this helps his case. His delivery is consistent and interesting; although his tone isn’t always great he still gets his point across efficiently. His speech doesn’t have any negative or positive implications but rather a neutral feel. He leaves the audience thinking and wondering if what he is saying is actually true. This is what makes the talk so great. This can also link to the intelligence topic because it poses the question, can experience be more beneficially than natural intelligence?

Here's a TED speech that talks about one possible application of Alex Wissner-Gross' equation for intelligence: Rodney Brooks' "Robots will invade our lives." (http://www.ted.com/talks/rodney_brooks_on_robots/transcript)

The connection between the speeches, which you may recognize already from Wissner-Gross' speech already, is that in order for the robots to work properly at real time, they must be programmed in a way that they can react to multiple circumstances humans may exhibit on them. Robots must have the ability to control themselves, and how to interact with humans. Eventually, the intelligence they would gain would be the result of controlling all the possible futures.

I find the speech about robots relevant to intelligence, because we can't necessarily create a robot that will eventually invade us without putting in our own intelligence. In fact, we have to introduce the equation for intelligence ourselves in order for the robot to make choices and predict future outcomes, as well as what to do. Nevertheless, there has been so many applications already involving the equation, and thus within innovation comes greater capacity for robots. The fact that robots would be able to work by themselves, as long as there is power to it, is enough to show that they may do things out of other people's expectations.

Because of the true power we would see without how they can control us, and within this sort of intelligence they can store, we admire robots too much. Thus, we should know that robots will eventually invade us.
