Just A Rather Very Intelligent System, or J.A.R.V.I.S.

We're not that far away from Artificial General Intelligence.


This blog was inspired by one of my favorite people right now, Andrew Ng.

This post is a summary of Andrew's video (53 minutes):

It is worth watching the whole thing if you have time.

I watched this video. And realized I want to share it's message. To revisit it myself and share with others. This is important.

AI can make the world a better place.

The opportunities, and the vision, are exciting.

Walk me through the video
