If you made a mistake, apologize.

If you are appreciative, show it.

If you are stuck, ask for help.

If you love someone, tell them, now.

Jeff Bezos speaking about innovation and the importance of asking the right questions: 

Never lose childlike wonder.
Tell the truth, all the time.
Show gratitude.
Don't complain; just work harder.
Never give up.
—Randy Pausch

Brilliant tweetstorm by CS PhD Student at Stanford Bharath Ramsundar on Artificial Intelligence:

Just finished reading "Homo Deus" by Yuval Novari. Highly recommend! Many interesting ideas in this book

2/ The author notes important split between the intelligence and consciousness. Today's AI is becoming intelligent, not conscious.

3/ As machine-learning/AI researchers, it's worth asking why we've made no progress on consciousness. What are we missing?

4/ I have no better answers than anyone else whose thought about the problem, but makes me think present-day AI is still missing key parts

5/ Organizations such as @OpenAI and @DeepMindAI are pushing headlong towards Artificial General Intelligence

6/ Vaguely, this is defined as an AI that can do all the things a human can. Need an AGI be conscious though?

7/ Given most approaches to AGI are based on generative modeling plus reinforcement learning, I'd say not at all...

8/ This is starting to touch on Searle's chinese room argument. How can a mechanical system be intelligent?

9/ I think Searle's argument is flawed, because it's becoming clear that intelligence and consciousness are only loosely linked

10/ If this is the case, what is the hallmark of consciousness, shared by most mammals, and not by any algorithm we've invented?

11/ Can large scale neuroscience resolve the issue? Most large brain ventures are connectionist and aim to find network structure of brain

12/ While these studies will likely inspire elaborate deep-learning architectures, not sure they'll resolve puzzle of consciousness

13/ The one mathematical take I've seen on consciousness is integrated information theory.

14/ Unfortunately, many scientists are deeply suspicious of I.I.T since it implies complex circuits are conscious

15/ The very sparsity of mathematical research on consciousness is striking. None of our mathematical tools let us even get a handle on it!

16/ I'd wager a mathematical theory of consciousness requires some fundamental math breakthrough, which much richer bio data

17/ Also, hope to see more debates about consciousness at the big AI shops when discussing AGI.
