STORY OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
CAN WE CREATE NEW SENSES FOR HUMANS? David Eagleman TED 2015 (20.38) As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.
THE INCREDIBLE INVENTIONS OF INTUITIVE AI Maurice Conti TED 2017 (15.23) What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more -- all by themselves. Take a tour of the Augmented Age with futurist Maurice Conti and preview a time when robots and humans will work side-by-side to accomplish things either could do alone.
WHAT IS AI? The Royal Society 2018 (2.31)
Technology with AI at its heart has the power to change the world, but what exactly is Artificial Intelligence?
The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of the world's most eminent scientists and is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. Visit our website to learn more: https://royalsociety.org/
WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL iNTELLIGENCE IN 5 MINUTES There is so much discussion and #confusion about #AI nowadays. People talk about #deeplearning and #computerVision without context. In this short video, I give context on how to think about AI.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & ALGORITHMS: PROS & CONS DW Documentary 2019 (42.25) Developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are leading to fundamental changes in the way we live. Algorithms can already detect Parkinson's disease and cancer, and control both cars and aircraft. How will AI change our society in the future?
This documentary journeys to the hot spots of AI research in Europe, the USA and China, and looks at the revolutionary developments which are currently taking place. The rapid growth of AI offers many opportunities, but also many dangers. AI can be used to create sound and video recordings which will make it more and more difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction. It will make the world of work more efficient and many professions superfluous. Algorithms can decide whether to grant loans, who is an insurance risk, and how good employees are. But there is a huge problem: humans can no longer comprehend how algorithms arrive at their decisions. And another big problem is AI’s capacity for widespread surveillance. The Chinese city of Rongcheng is already using an AI-supported 'social credit system' to monitor and assess its citizens. Does AI pose a danger to our personal freedoms or democracy? Which decisions can we leave to the algorithms - and which do we want to? And what are AI’s social implications?
HOW WILL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AFFECT YOUR LIFE? Jeff Dean | TED Talks 2017 (15.55) In the last five years, significant advances were made in the fields of computer vision, speech recognition, and language understanding. In this talk, Jeff Dean discusses why and how these advances have come about, what the implications are for areas as diverse as robotics, healthcare, human creativity and computer hardware design, and why these possibilities are so exciting.
Jeff Dean is a Senior Fellow in Google’s Research Group, where he leads the Google Brain project. His areas of interest include large-scale distributed systems, performance monitoring, compression techniques, information retrieval, application of machine learning to search and other related problems, microprocessor architecture, compiler optimizations, and development of new products that organize existing information in new and interesting ways.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
HOW ALAN TURING LAID THE FOUNDATIONS FOR AI: THE TURING TEST EXPLAINED Google Arts & Culture 2019 (3.34) Can machines think? As artificial intelligence technology grows ever more useful and commonplace, it's a question that has computer scientists scratching their heads.
But it was first asked more than half a century ago - by the "father of modern computing and artificial intelligence", Alan Turing.
Get with the program and discover the moving story of Turing's life, his many legacies to computer science and society, and find out how his work is still central to modern artificial intelligence and computing.

THE TURING TEST: CAN A COMPUTER PASS FOR A HUMAN? - Alex Gendler TED-Ed 2016 (4.42) What is consciousness? Can an artificial machine really think? For many, these have been vital considerations for the future of artificial intelligence. But British computer scientist Alan Turing decided to disregard all these questions in favor of a much simpler one: Can a computer talk like a human? Alex Gendler describes the Turing test and details some of its surprising results. View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-turing-...
.WHAT IS QUANTUM COMPUTING? - BBC Click 2017 (24.30) Click investigates the weird world of quantum computing, Spencer meets arts legend Marina Abramovic and Dan reviews the leading 360 cameras.
QUANTUM SUPREMACY & AI, Stephen Fry. Pindex 2019 (12.12) How Quantum AI could help you live to 200, like a bowhead whale.
Google's quantum supremacy news opens exciting doors. A quantum computer completed a task in 200 seconds that would take 10,000 years on today's fastest supercomputer. We explore the special connection between quantum computers and AI. Together, they will change everything.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 4: LORD RABBI JONATHAN SACKS ON MORALITY 6th September 2018 Rabbi Jonathan Sacks speaks to some of the world's leading thinkers about morality, together with voices from the next generation: groups of British 6th form students.
AI is already fundamentally transforming our world, and in the coming years will have an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our lives. So the ethical questions surrounding its development are urgent and important. Rabbi Sacks argues that we must always be able to choose our fate, in the full dignity of responsibility, never forgetting that machines were made to serve human beings, not the other way around.

JUDAISM AND AI (We are in the early stages of AI These videos ar important as they start us talking)
The discussion videos below are from Rabbi Nathan. He says Although I am an ordained rabbi, I am not a posek (Jewish legal scholar), and this video is not intended to serve as a halakhic ruling. However, I do seek to include relevant opinions and rulings from across the Jewish spectrum. If you believe that I have missed something important, please leave a comment. If you are seeking advice on a real life situation, please consult your own rabbi.
(The series only has the four videos below. You will have your own questions to add)
CAN A ROBOT CONVERT TO JUDAISM? Jewish FutureLaw Rabbi Nathan 2017 (10.38) What would it take for a robot to convert to Judaism? How advanced is artificial intelligence? Jewish FutureLaw is a series that explores the ethics of emerging technologies in a Jewish context.
CAN WE MAKE KOSHER BACON? - Jewish Futurelaw Rabbi Nathan 2017 (10.38) Can we one day make kosher bacon? New technologies make new frontiers possible. The future of food systems could be radically different from anything that we have seen before.
GENETIC DESIGNER BABIES Jewish FutureLaw Rabbi Nathan Should you genetically engineer your baby? What are the ethical implications of creating "designer babies," and is it permitted under Jewish Law?
WHEN DO YOU LIGHT SHABBAT CANDLES ON MARS? Jewish FutureLaw Rabbi Nathan Space travel is expected to become more commonplace over the coming years, with multiple plans for a human colony on Mars already underway. How will that effect Jewish practice?
An exhibition featuring a robot writing Torah scrolls is on show at the Jewish museum in Berlin. Over the next six months the robot will work 10 hours a day to produce two scrolls, each 80 meters long, with the religious Jewish writings.
