“Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence - in the form of Artificial Intelligence,
brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement - wins hands down
as doing the most to change the world.
Nothing else is even in the same league.”
Senior Research Fellow at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute
Explore the ways Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning are shaping the evolution of
virtually every sphere of human activity and understand its many different applications to
Learn how to develop Bayesian Program Learning applications and create new businesses,
build prototypes, and communicate your work to others.
Connect with new collaborators with diverse backgrounds from all over the world and
forge alliances that will last a lifetime.
Nell Watson is a world-renowned engineer, speaker, entrepreneur, technology consultant, and thought leader in AI and machine learning. Nell is the founder and CEO of Poikos, a Machine Vision startup based in Amsterdam that uses computer vision and machine learning to personalize consumer goods. She serves on the Artificial Intelligence & Robotics Faculty at Singularity University, is the Founder of the International Society of Digital Medicine, and is a Senior Scientific Advisor to the Future Society’s AI Initiative at Harvard’s Kennedy School. Nell joins the Exosphere Academy’s Faculty for the third time, having previously been a Visiting Fellow at Exosphere’s Athena boot camp for women in entrepreneurship and as a Symposiast at Exosphere’s AI Nexus in Santiago, Chile.
The Industrial Revolution was accelerated by the advent of replaceable parts, and Artificial Intelligence is the analogous development in the Information Age.
Machine Learning startups like DeepMind have been acquired by the tech giants at a tremendous rate because all of the “smart money” sees the future we’re heading towards, and how rapidly we are going there.
At Exosphere, you will understand the opportunities, learn the skills, and start building your future in this exciting new stage of the Information Revolution.
Machine Intelligence is a multidisciplinary space—it encompasses mathematics and computer science, but also philosophy, neuroscience, and linguistics. Understand the context, analogies, and implications when building machine brains, and how these elements intersect.
For the first time machines are no longer bound by deterministic ones and zeroes. More than just intelligence, learn how to make the most of Artificial Intuition. Understand the different types and use-cases of these 'unreasonably effective' new techniques.
Machine Learning is part art and part science. A basic self-driving vehicle can be written in 12 lines of code, and there are lots of excellent tools to make things easy. Learn how to build fast, simple solutions for immediate problems in ML, without reinventing the wheel.
Neural Networks have a major drawback—they needs lots of training data to learn from, the more the better. A revolutionary new technique can learn from a single example, like a human being. Gain a special advantage in this hot space before anyone else in the world.
Being able to communicate effectively with your colleagues and other audiences like investors, customers and media is essential to your success. At Exosphere you will develop a full stack of communication and presentation abilities.
