Keynote Abstract

Challenges for Deep Learning towards Human-Level AI

Humans seem to be much more efficient than current AI at learning from unlabeled observations and interaction with their environment, and current machine learning systems do not seem to understand their training data nearly as well as humans. A core objective of deep learning is to come up with learning frameworks which can discover disentangled representations which explain the important variations in the data. Progress in deep generative networks based on an adversarial criterion has been impressive and we show how these ideas can be used to estimate and optimize entropy and mutual information. and how this could be used towards unsupervised learning of high-level abstractions. This follows the ambitious objective of disentangling the underlying causal factors explaining the observed data. We argue that natural language understanding cannot come from current attempts purely based on text corpora. Instead, a learning agent must acquire information by acting in the world and jointly learn a model of the world and how languge can be used to refer to it. Natural language could be used as an additional hint about the abstract representations and disentangled factors which humans have discovered to explain their world. Some conscious thoughts also correspond to the kind of small nugget of knowledge (like a fact or a rule) which have been the main building blocks of classical symbolic AI. This therefore raises the interesting possibility of addressing some of the objectives of classical symbolic AI focused on higher-level cognition using the deep learning machinery augmented by the architectural elements necessary to implement conscious thinking about disentangled causal factors.

Bio

Lenore Blum (PhD, MIT) is Distinguished Career Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) where she is also Chair in Technology Entrepreneurship and Founding Director of Project Olympus, a proof-of-concept innovation center she founded in 2007 that works with faculty and students to bridge the gap between cutting-edge university research/innovation and economy-promoting commercialization. Since 2007, over half the Carnegie Mellon start-ups have come through Project Olympus. Project Olympus is a good example of Lenore Blum’s determination to make a real difference in the academic community and the world beyond.

Lenore is internationally recognized for her work in increasing the participation of girls and women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. She was founding co-Director of the Math/Science Network and its Expanding Your Horizons conferences which has served over one million middle and high school girls since inception in the early 1970s. In 1974, Lenore founded the Mills College Computer Science Department, the first at any women’s college on the planet. Arriving at CMU in 1999, she founded the Women@SCS program --currently half the CS majors at CMU are women. In 2004 Lenore received the US Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring. In 2009 she received the Carnegie Science Catalyst Award and in 2018, she received Carlow University’s Women of Spirit Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Simmons University.

Lenore has served the professional community in numerous capacities, including as third President of the Association for Women in Mathematics and Vice President of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). She has taught at the University of California at Berkeley, was a Senior Researcher at the International Computer Science Institute and Deputy Director of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, both also in Berkeley. Lenore is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and inaugural fellow of the AMS and the AWM.

Lenore’s research, from her early work in model theory and differential fields (logic and algebra) to her more recent work in developing a theory of computation and complexity over the real numbers (mathematics and computer science), has focused on merging seemingly unrelated areas. Lenore is excited by her new research (with her husband Manuel and son Avrim) on creating a mathematical model for a “conscious AI.”

Keynote Abstract

Towards a Conscious AI: A Computer Architecture Inspired by Cognitive Neuroscience

Thanks to major advances in neuroscience, we are on the brink of a scientific understanding of how the brain achieves consciousness.  This talk will describe cognitive neuroscientist Bernard Baars' Global Workspace Model (GWM) of the brain, its implications for understanding consciousness, and a formal computer architecture that it inspires. The elder Blums were ecstatic to learn that the younger Blum’s “sleeping experts” algorithm was just what was needed to decide which unconscious processors get onto the conscious stage. The Model gives insight for the design of machines that truly experience (as opposed to simulate) feelings such as joy and pain.

Keynote Abstract

Automating Customizable Computing —Democratizing Accelerator Designs at the Edge and in the Cloud

In the past decade, CDSC has been exploring customizable computing, which emphasizes extensive use of customized accelerators on programmable fabrics for much greater performance and energy efficiency. With Intel’s $17B acquisition of Altera in 2015 and large-scale deployment of FPGAs in both private and public clouds in the past two years, customizable computing is going from advanced research into mainstream computing.

Although the performance and energy efficiency benefits of customizable computing have been clearly demonstrated, a significant challenge, however, is the efficient design and implementation of various accelerators on FPGAs. It presents a significant barrier to many software programmers. In this talk, I shall talk about our effort on developing an automated compilation flow from high-level programming languages to FPGAs. I start with a quick review of our early work on high-level synthesis. Then, I shall present our recent effort on source-code level transformation and optimization for customizable computing, including support of high-level domain-specific languages (DSL) for deep learning (e.g. Caffe), imaging processing (e.g. Halide), and big-data processing (e.g. Spark), and support automated compilation to customized microarchitecture templates, such as systolic arrays, stencils, and CPP (composable parallel and pipelined).

Keynote Abstract

Computer Technology and Public Policy

As computing becomes pervasive in society, there are many cases where technology must work hand-in-hand with regulation or social processes. Here are three examples: (1) As a technology, blockchain does not deserve the hype that it gets. Its true value is shock value: many established practices could have been drastically improved by computers 15 years ago, but inertia has kept them unchanged. Now people ask, “What are you doing about blockchain?” and if you don’t have an answer you look like an idiot, even though usually the answer has little to do with blockchain. (2) Soon there will be lots of IoT devices can kill people if they malfunction, whether the cause is bugs or hacking. To make them safe, they need two things: a secure foundation, and an architecture that entrusts safety to a well-isolated component that is simple enough to be formally verify. (3) People want is a sense of control over their online data. Control means that you can tell who has your data, limit what they can do with it, and change your mind about the limits. There will not be a single worldwide regulatory regime, but it does seem possible to have common technical mechanisms that support regulation.

Keynote Abstract

AI: Background, History and Future Opportunities

There has been a lot hype and misinformation about AI in the media recently. Many of these predictions will not happen. Robots will not take over the world. In this talk, we will review tools, techniques and advances in AI over the past half century and explore what might be next. We will present two types of Intelligent Assistants, namely, Cognition Amplifiers that will enable us to do many daily tasks faster and with less effort and Guardian Angels that will provide us with superhuman capabilities, to do tasks previously impossible for humans. We will present a possible Architecture of Intelligent Agents and the creation of Intelligent Agent market place.
