Third Wave AI: The Coming Revolution in Artificial Intelligence
Presented by Six Kin Development. Partnered With SGInnovate and SingularityNET
Artificial intelligence is everywhere, driving a multi-billion dollar industry and radically changing how businesses operate and how people work and play. Yet as powerful as it is today, major limitations are holding back the realization of AI's true capabilities.
In this talk, we’ll take an entertaining and informative look at where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re heading with artificial intelligence. We’ll drill down on the major limitations of today’s narrow AI solutions, then discuss how the coming “Third Wave of AI” will overcome these limitations by producing AI with more humanlike abilities, such as contextual adaptation, greatly improved learning, and the ability to generalize.
We’ll then look at some of the incredible new opportunities that will be possible within just a few short years and conclude by examining how Third Wave AI can be a stepping stone to the fourth and final wave of AI, Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).
Date : 9 October 2018, Tuesday
Time : 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Venue : BASH, Level 3, Block 79 Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139955

7:00 pm – 7:30 pm: Q&A and Networking
Our speaker for this talk is Mr. Scott Jones, Managing Director, Six Kin Development.
Scott is a Silicon Valley veteran who began his career writing code and managing software development teams for several early Internet startup companies, including Netscape, where he helped build the legendary Netscape Navigator web browser. He has since founded several startups and been involved with numerous high-tech ventures over the past 25 years.
In his current role, Mr. Jones oversees deep tech projects that utilize next-generation artificial intelligence, including Pandai (www.sixkin.com/pandai), a revolutionary new artificially intelligent personal tutor. He is also the regional representative for SingularityNET (www.singularitynet.io), creators of the first decentralized marketplace for AI services and the brains behind Sophia, the famous humanoid robot.
Additionally, Mr. Jones has spent more than a decade in academia, serving as Senior Lecturer at Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore, and as a researcher at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where he worked alongside Dr. Ben Goertzel, co-founder & CEO of SingularityNET.

What Can We Expect from Machine Cognition
Recent decades have witnessed the remarkable progress in artificial intelligence (AI). However, there are still opposing views on the prospect of AI as being yet another cyclic hype or a new development with sustaining power. As the evidence becomes less controversial in the area of recognition, we focus the discussion on the next level of mental capacity necessary to intelligent behaviors, namely, the capability of cognition that involves knowledge acquisition, inference and reasoning, and reinforcement learning. We present our views by way of the current status of Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), a project in Microsoft Research that teaches machine to obtain knowledge by reading scholarly publications, and contemplate what machine can do in the near future based on the trajectory being observed thus far. As MAG is open to the public, how it can be used through PySpark and what types of applications it has enabled will also be described.Topics:
