Season 2 kicks off with Episode 1 - Concepts and Categories Part I with RADIO AI, Director Cindy Mason who reveals  AI's hidden key to 'making sense' of the world - Concepts and Categories.   People name and organize everything in the world this way,  and  AI systems do, too.  Some neuroscientists even think our physical brain is organized around Concepts and Categories. And its not just one kind of AI that does this, but ALL of AI is based on naming and labeling the world as concepts and categories.  For Machine Learning, Robotics, Natural Language Processing or any other branch of AI,  this is true.    Examples of categories are Dogs, Cats, and Beachy-Things.  How does an AI system know that a turtle is a Beachy-Thing, but a clown shoe is not?   How does an AI system determine that a 3-legged Dalmatian  named  "Spot" is a Dog and not a Cat?  Join  Cindy   as she explores the answers to these questions and more!
