AI Talks: Nail with brains | Ep. 08 | Ridger Zhou

Richard stops his work SpikeGPT before, a AI-based model that combines spiking neural networks (SNNs) with traditional artificial neural networks (ANNs)and discusses both its potential and its drawbacks. Regarding the latter, Richard notes that SNNs still cannot match the precision and performance of CNNs due to their binary nature. Nevertheless, he emphasises his assumption that SNNs could eventually outperform traditional neural networks in machine learning, as they are able to more closely mimic the functions of the human brain. In addition, how and why SpikeGPT-like models are particularly energy efficient will be discussed, as well as their promising applicability for tasks that require continuous learning. The audience will be encouraged to try out SpikeGPT for themselves.

This summary was created with our in-house video transcriber, which uses OpenAI Whisper to automatically transcribe and summarise video content.
With the ability to process both YouTube URLs and local files (up to 200 MB), the AI application creates accurate transcripts and summaries. Of particular note are the Transcription Engine 1 & 2, which allow transcribed words to be colour-coded according to model confidence - from red (unsafe) to yellow (neutral) to white (safe). This visual aid provides users with a quick assessment of transcription accuracy.
