“The New AI” – Jürgen Schmidhuber (talk)
Jürgen Schmidhuber is a professor of Cognitive Robotics at the Tech. University Munich. He’s mostly known on his work on machine learning. Interestingly, his research is not also relevant for robotics and AI, but also for arts. You can learn more about his work on his website and download some of his publications here.
Here’s his talk from the second Conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).

Most traditional artificial intelligence (AI) systems of the past 50 years are either very limited, or based on heuristics, or both. The new millennium, however, has brought substantial progress in the field of theoretically optimal and practically feasible algorithms for prediction, search, inductive inference based on Occam’s razor, problem solving, decision making, and reinforcement learning in environments of a very general type. Since inductive inference is at the heart of all inductive sciences, some of the results are relevant not only for AI and computer science but also for physics, provoking nontraditional predictions based on Zuse’s thesis of the computer-generated universe.
