    1. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE:THE MAIN IDEAS OLLI COURSE SCI 102 Tuesdays, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Winter Quarter, 2013 Higher Education Center, Medford Room 226 Nils J. Nilsson Course Web Page: For Information about parking near the HEC, go to: There are links on that page to parking rules and maps

    2. AI in the News CBS 60 Minutes Are robots hurting job growth? January 13, 2013 5:00 PM Technological advances, especially robotics, are revolutionizing the workplace, but not necessarily creating jobs. Steve Kroft reports.

    3. Sources of Additional Information

    4. MOOCS(Massive Open Online Courses) Artificial Intelligence Planning Gerhard Wickler, Austin Tate Begins Jan 28th 2013 (5 weeks long) And, check out for a list of dozens and dozens of online courses, including some on topics related to AI

    5. Perception Action Selection Many Kinds of Agents Memory stimulus-response or planned processes raw sensory information models of world Modifiable by Learning

    6. PART ONE(Continued)REACTIVE AGENTS Perception Action Selection

    7. More Intelligent PerceptionYields More Intelligent Action Perception Action Selection

    8. Volvo V40 (Semi-) Automatic Reverse Parking

    9. Neural Networks For Perceptual Learning One of AI’s Main Ideas!

    10. Two Neurons Hebb’s rule for synaptic changes The human brain has about 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses.

    11. An Artificial Neural Element Inputs from sensors or from other neural elements Output adds up the weighted inputs, compares to a threshold, and produces an output “synaptic” weights

    12. Frank Rosenblatt (on left) andHis Synaptic Weight – ca 1963

    13. Using a Neural Element to Control a Light-Following Robot wr wl l photocell values t If (l x wl) + (rx wr) > t, turn left Otherwise, turn right r Wl= ?, Wl= ?, t= ?

    14. Try Some Weight Values and Test on a Sample Input left photocell 5 -1 8 7 right photocell 10 30 is greater than 7, so turn left Error!

    15. A Neural Element Implements a Boundary in the Graph of landrValues. 5 -1 l 7 r Boundary: 5l- r= 7

    16. l Error, Adjust weights sample input boundary decide to turn left decide to turn right 5l- r= 7 r

    17. l desired boundary turn left region turn right region r

    18. Adjust Weights to Correct Error left photocell 5 –> 3 8 -1–>-4 7 –>9 right photocell 10 24 – 40 = – 16 < 9, so turn right

    19. Training ProcedureCycle Through Training Inputs l training inputs r

    20. Another Example

    21. A Harder Problem(Not “Linearly Separable”) Neural element 1 Neural element 2

    22. Harder Problems Can BeSolved with a Network Neural element 1 Neural element 2

    23. Very Large Networks Can Be Used

    24. A Big Problem:How to Train Weights in a Network Jay McClelland David Rumelhart

    25. The “Backprop” Method

    26. To Train, Make Small Adjustments to the Weights in Directions that Make the Outputs (a Little) More Correct

    27. Input: Text Versions of English Words Output: Sound Training: Change Weights to Make Sound More Correct An Example: NetTalk Sejnowski, T. J. and Rosenberg, C. R., Parallel networks that learn to pronounce English text, Complex Systems 1, 145-168 (1987).

    28. Another Example: ALVINN A neural network system called ALVINN (Autonomous Land Vehicle in a Neural Network) has been trained to steer a Humvee successfully on ordinary roads and highways at speeds of 55 mph.

    29. ALVINN’S Neural Network 960 inputs 30 x 32 “retina” TV Image of Road Ahead 5 hidden units connected to all 960 inputs 30 output units connected to all hidden units

    30. What Are ALVINN’s Hidden Units Measuring? First Hidden Unit w1 w960 After thorough training, here are the weight values of the first hidden unit (represented as pixels in the 30 x 32 image) Black = negative weight, White = positive weight

    31. Weight Values for All 5 Hidden Units The diagonal black and white bands on weights represent detectors for the yellow line down the center and the white line down the right edge of the road. D. A. Pomerleau “Efficient Training of Artificial Neural Networks for Autonomous Navigation,” Neural Computation, 1991, MIT Press

    32. In All of The Examples So Far,We Knew the Category of the Input, So We Knew What the Correct Network Response Should Be “Supervised Learning”

    33. What About “Unsupervised Learning” ?

    34. Letting Networks “Adapt” to Their Inputs All connections are bi-directional Massive number of training samples Weight Values Become Those For Extracting “Features” of Inputs

    35. Hubel & Wiesel’s “Detector Neurons” David Hubel, Torsten Wiesel Short bar of light projected onto a cat’s retina Response of a single neuron in the cat’s visual cortex (as detected by a micro-electrode in the anaesthetized cat)

    36. Models of the Cortex: Deep, Hierarchical Neural Networks All connections are bi-directional

    37. Two Pioneers in Using Networks to Model the Cortex Hierarchical Temporal Memory Jeff Hawkins Geoffrey Hinton

    38. More About Hawkins

    39. Dileep George’s HTM Model A “Convolutional” Network George is a founder of startup, Vicarious
