Singularity Summit - Ben Goertzel
Ben Goertzel is speaking about OpenCog, an open source effort to create Artificial General Intelligence.
He showed a video of an AI dog in a virtual world being taught to behave in certain ways by watching two human-controlled characters interact. Also they're working on natural language processing. They gave OpenCog some Wikipedia articles and he's showing how its reasoning module has created new knowledge by analyzing the connections between the concepts it learned from Wikipedia (if that sounds vague, it was; I'd like to see the specifics of this).
He's looking forward to AI scientists who can read hundreds of thousands of research papers, overcoming the time and memory limits of human scientists.
