How AI Outsmarted the Superbugs (for now)

Anyone interested in technology and society should read Melvin Kranzberg’s Six Laws of Technology, the first of which says that “technology is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral”. Here’s an interesting look at how AI outsmarted antibiotic resistant bacteria (for now). The saloon-bar version of this is that “technology is both good and […]

John Hopfield on the Physics View of the Mind and Neurobiology

Lex Fridman interviews John Hopfield, a professor at Princeton, whose life’s work weaved beautifully through biology, chemistry, neuroscience, and physics. Most crucially, he saw the messy world of biology through the piercing eyes of a physicist. He is perhaps best known for his work on associate neural networks, now known as Hopfield networks that were […]

Promising to learn more, I came across this video by giant_neural_network on YouTube.
