Today we are talking to Dileep George, the Co-Founder at Vicarious AI. And we discuss their long term goal of building artificial general intelligence, learning from failures to come back even stronger, and the relationship between feedforward and feedback information.
All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!
Dileep George (born 5 August 1977) is an AI and neuroscience researcher. In 2005, George pioneered Hierarchical temporal memory and co founded the AI research startup Numenta, Inc. with Jeff Hawkins and Donna Dubinsky. In 2010, George left Numenta to join D. Scott Phoenix in founding Vicarious, an AI research project funded by internet billionaires Peter Thiel and Dustin Moskovitz.
George has authored 22 patents and many peer-reviewed papers on the mathematics of brain circuits His research has been featured in the New York Times, BusinessWeek, Scientific Computing, Wired, Wall Street Journal, and on Bloomberg Television.George received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2006 and continues his neuroscience research collaboration as Visiting Fellow at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley.
Vicarious is developing artificial general intelligence for robots. By combining insights from generative probabilistic models and systems neuroscience, our architecture trains faster, adapts more readily, and generalizes more broadly than AI approaches commonly used today. The company was founded in 2010 by D. Scott Phoenix and Dr. Dileep George
