Crash Course Artificial Intelligence Preview


Hi! I’m Jabril, and welcome to Crash Course Artificial Intelligence. Whether we notice it or not, artificial intelligence
is EVERYWHERE. It’s guiding critical decisions in every
field, from finance to health. It’s driving the algorithms of technology
giants like Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Netflix. And it’s what puts the “smart” in our
smart devices like Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. Artificially intelligent systems are analyzing
/huge/ amounts of data that we’re generating every day, to infer patterns and predict likely futures. Like the amount of yogurt people might buy next week at the grocery store, so the store knows how much to stock. Everyone seems to be talking about AI and
how it’s going to revolutionize the world or create some dystopian future. While we don’t know what the future
holds, we at Crash Course believe that creating a better outcome starts with a better understanding. The goal of this course is to teach the logic behind AI by tracing its history, examining how it’s being used today, and showing some practical examples. And we’re going to try something a little
different, we’ll work together on labs, writing and implementing code to program our
very own AI systems! Along the way, we’ll spend several episodes
on a hot area of AI known as machine learning. Using the brain as inspiration, these
AI can learn from examples. We’ve taught machines to recognize people
in photos, predict the next word we’re going to type on our phones, and recommend videos
for us on YouTube! But AI is broader than just machine learning. So we’ll talk about how AI systems
can act based on plans, rules, and logical representations of the world. These are the kinds of algorithms that are
used to plan the path of a delivery-drone or determine the best move in a game of chess. But before we get into all the technical stuff, I should introduce myself. I’m your human-host, Jabril! I have a YouTube channel called Jabrils, where
I look for interesting problems, be it personal or universal, try to solve them using code,
and vlog my adventures and mistakes along the way! I got my start in machine learning when I
decided to build a machine learning game from scratch. I didn’t have any prior knowledge on the
subject, which I think ended up helping it resonate with people. Now I’m hosting Crash Course AI, and I’m
not doing it alone! John Green Bot? This is my non-human sidekick, John-Green-bot, who will help me demonstrate some core ideas and show the limits and possibilities of current AI. John Green Bot: Greetings, human viewers. Now, I’m excited to learn about AI, I because I want to be able to go to new cities & be guaranteed to get the type of pizza that I
think is tastiest, not necessarily what’s most popular. Or when I go to the doctor, I could get a
prescription specifically tailored to me and my exact symptoms. With AI this type of future is possible. AI is still a new field, so there are a lot
of problems to solve but not that many people trying to solve them. We also have to think about what the future
of AI means for us as humans, & I believe it’s in our best interest to have as many
people as possible who understand the field of AI so that the conversation can expand. Thanks for watching. And as they say in John Green Bot’s hometown… John Green Bot: Don’t Forget To Be Blossom! No. John Green Bot. AWESOME. Don’t forget to be AWESOME. We’ll see you guys next week! Thanks to PBS for sponsoring Crash Course AI! If you want to help keep Crash Course free

  1. Me at this start: Whos is this? Seems chill, that's cool.
    Jabril: says Jabril
    Me: Wait a minute… I know you from Mark Rober's channel.

    This isn't a joke, just thought it was weird that I didn't recognize him until he said his own name.

  2. Jabril!! Excellent!!!! I've discovered him, what, a year ago now? Basically through recommendations as I was watching a lot of machine learning videos. And he's great!! πŸ˜€

  3. Hahaha whaaaaaaaaaaat! I was caught so off guard by the host, he's actually talking! And hosting a crash course series! Hahaha crazy

  4. I hope there's an episode on AGI research safety and ethics. We don't know how AI will act when it is better than us at everything, and we should have rules in place when developing it to make sure the nastiest eventualities don't happen.

  5. Ooh, getting to play along with programming your own AI? That sounds like it could be fun. I hope it's in C++, since I already know a bit of that language; it'd be a bit of a pain to have to learn a different one.

  6. Where else can you learn coding for free?? Or computer related stuff. Not complex teaching but kinda kid teaching ??

  7. That is not artificial intelligence.

    Intelligence has been defined in many ways, including: the capacity for logic, understanding, self-awareness, learning, emotional knowledge, reasoning, planning, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. More generally, it can be described as the ability to perceive or infer information, and to retain it as knowledge to be applied towards adaptive behaviors within an environment or context.

    A Computer is a state of a transistor either being on or off and a computer fails all test on intelligence because computers can't think

    artificial intelligence will NEVER come from a computer that uses the binary code of on and off transistors

    artificial intelligence will come when science discover on how to make an artificial brain from an animal or human brain. And it wont use 1s and zeros like a computer but more complex molecule.

  8. Thank you!! This is what i needed to learn more about because ill be doing computer science at uni this september

  9. OMG! Jabril and CrashCourse working together. Its like a wish come true, that I didn't even think I had an option of wishing! πŸ˜€

  10. If you learn "AI" (machine learning, etc) you will discover that there is nothing Intelligent with "AI", and that's it's very over-hyped. You can "teach" a machine that 1+1=2 and 2+1=3 but if you ask it what 2+2 is it will have no idea. You can train a machine with one million pictures of dogs and cats, then show it a picture of a whale and it will say with 99% certainly that it's a dog. eg. it will only be useful in what it's trained for. Computers are fast, but they are also very dumb.

  11. Awesome! I still remember what chom choms are from another course here. Yay! My brain is so hungry. Thank You all so much! πŸ’›

  12. Ooooh I love that you're going to use jupyter notebooks!! I probably will know a lot of this stuff because I study comp sci / comp linguistics, but still looking forward to it πŸ™‚

  13. As I was watching the ad before this video all I was thinking was "please please pLEASE let this be a good and upbeat host" a lo and behold, we got a pretty chill and cool seeming host. I'm so excited

  14. When he said "John green bot" I was really hoping that they didn't get John green. No offense to him but his voice sounds a little monotone and boring to me. I love the subjects but it's him that I don't really care for.

  15. I've been waiting for this, it is going to be soo cool, I'm excited. And thank you for creating this. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ŒπŸ½

  16. wait, why does he now need to move his mouth in order to speak, is this the legacy version? He used to be able to do telepathic communication, give us back Stable release
