Hi! New AI Weekly is here! Enjoy your weekend reading AI news and don’t forget to share it with your friends ;) GENERAL Why Is the Human Brain So Efficient? - How massive parallelism lifts the brain’s performance above that of AI. http://bit.ly/2k7cWVg AI and Compute - OpenAI released an analysis showing that since 2012, the amount of compute used in the largest AI training runs has been increasing exponentially with a 3.5 month-doubling time (by comparison, Moore’s Law had an 18-month doubling period). Since 2012, this metric has grown by more than 300,000x (an 18-month doubling period would yield only a 12x increase). Improvements in compute have been a key component of AI progress, so as long as this trend continues, it’s worth preparing for the implications of systems…
