I was already signed up for Computer Vision when word came that there would be a new Deep Learning class next semester. I quickly got…

I wrote a post asking if humans had ‘inductive biases’ in the same sense that machine learning algorithms do. My conclusion was that they do…

In a past post, I made the claim that Induction was subsumed by Critical Rationalism and that all cases of induction ‘working’ are really cases…

Despite appearances, this post isn’t intended as a political post. I simply utilized the example that led to the thought that inspired the post. We…

In the last episode, we showed that Artificial General Intelligence was possible according to the laws of physics. This episode is part 1 of a…

Part 3 of our series on Computational Theory. Using the theory we’ve built up, we now prove that Artificial General Intelligence is possible due to…

Bruce and I have an ongoing discussion about our differing interpretation of Donald Campbell’s notion of “blindness”. Bruce has previously published a post explaining his…

In the last episode, we gave you the basic theory. Now we’re going to show you how Computational Theory is actually used in real life.…

Computational Theory is possibly the most underrated of all scientific theories. In fact, most scientists think of it as a branch of mathematics rather than…

“ImageNet-Trained CNNs are Biased Towards Texture; Increasing Shape Bias Improves Accuracy and Robustness” (link) by Robert Geirhos, et al explores two proposed theories about how…
