AI will make you smarter!

You will hear a university professor talking about Artificial Intelligence and making predictions about how AI might make us smarter in the future.

Write NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS for each answer.


  1. Read through the questions and try to predict answers.
  2. Listen and fill gaps in the text with suitable words or phrases.
  3. Click (or touch) 'Check your answers'.
  • Feedback colours: Correct - Incorrect - Not answered
  • After submitting answers a link to an answer key will appear at the bottom of the page. Clicking highlighted words in this key will reveal the location of the answer in the tapescript.
  • This activity includes 10 questions.

OK I understand

Recognizing patterns

Deep learning

  • identifying objects in images
  • recognising speech

Goals of deep learning

  • represent complexity
  • from previous experience

Methods for deep learning

  • Like the brain:
    • Different kinds of handled simultaneously
    • become stronger when used, weaker when not

Successes to date

  • 1960s research into the visual cortex
  • learning algorithms invented in the
  • convergence of artificial and biological intelligence

Examples of deep learning in real life

  • Google translate
  • Reading and photographs used by doctors
  • Amazon’s Alexa

AI advancing learning

When reinforcement learning is coupled with , computers become good at:

  • playing games like Go
  • making aircraft fly like birds in turbulent

Currently..

  • We don’t know how the brain solves problems
  • We don’t know how the brain organizes between brain areas

But in the future..

  • Autonomous systems like computers may become

Recognizing patterns

Deep learning

  • identifying objects in images
  • recognising speech
  • processing text (1)

Goals of deep learning

  • represent complexity
  • generalise/generalize (2) from previous experience

Methods for deep learning

  • Like the brain:
    • Different kinds of data (3) handled simultaneously
    • Neurons (4) become stronger when used, weaker when not

Successes to date

  • 1960s research into the visual cortex
  • learning algorithms invented in the 1980s/nineteen eighties (5)
  • convergence of artificial and biological intelligence

Examples of deep learning in real life

  • Google translate
  • Reading X-ray images/X-rays (6) and photographs used by doctors
  • Amazon’s Alexa

AI advancing learning

When reinforcement learning is coupled with deep learning (7), computers become good at:

  • playing games like Go
  • making aircraft fly like birds in turbulent thermals (8)

Currently..

  • We don’t know how the brain solves problems
  • We don’t know how the brain organizes interactions (9) between brain areas

But in the future..

  • Autonomous systems like computers may become living creatures (10)
