It used to be that if you wanted to get a computer to do something new,
you would have to program it.
Now, programming, for those of you here that haven't done it yourself,
requires laying out in excruciating detail
every single step that you want the computer to achieve, to do
in order to achieve your goal.
Now, if you want to do something that you don't know how to do yourself,
then this is going to be a great challenge.
So this was the challenge faced by this man, Arthur Samuel.
In 1956, he wanted to get this computer
to be able to beat him at checkers.
How can you write a program,
lay out in excruciating detail, how to be better than you at checkers?
So he came up with an idea:
he had the computer play against itself thousands of times
and learn how to play checkers.
And indeed it worked, and in fact, by 1962,
this computer had beaten the Connecticut state champion.
So Arthur Samuel was the father of machine learning,
and I have a great debt to him,
because I am a machine learning practitioner.
I was the president of Kaggle,
a community of over 200,000 machine learning practitioners.
Kaggle puts up competitions
to try and get them to solve previously unsolved problems,
and it's been successful hundreds of times.
So from this vantage point, I was able to find out
a lot about what machine learning can do in the past, can do today,
and what it could do in the future.
Perhaps the first big success of machine learning commercially was Google.
Google showed that it is possible to find information
by using a computer algorithm,
and this algorithm is based on machine learning.
Since that time, there have been many commercial successes of machine learning.
Companies like Amazon and Netflix
use machine learning to suggest products that you might like to buy,
movies that you might like to watch.
Sometimes, it's almost creepy.
Companies like LinkedIn and Facebook
sometimes will tell you about who your friends might be
and you have no idea how it did it,
and this is because it's using the power of machine learning.
These are algorithms that have learned how to do this from data
rather than being programmed by hand.
This is also how IBM was successful
in getting Watson to beat the two world champions at "Jeopardy,"
answering incredibly subtle and complex questions like this one.
["The ancient 'Lion of Nimrud' went missing from this city's national museum in 2003 (along with a lot of other stuff)"]
This is also why we are now able to see the first self-driving cars.
If you want to be able to tell the difference between, say,
a tree and a pedestrian, well, that's pretty important.
We don't know how to write those programs by hand,
but with machine learning, this is now possible.
And in fact, this car has driven over a million miles
without any accidents on regular roads.
So we now know that computers can learn,
and computers can learn to do things
that we actually sometimes don't know how to do ourselves,
or maybe can do them better than us.
One of the most amazing examples I've seen of machine learning
happened on a project that I ran at Kaggle
where a team run by a guy called Geoffrey Hinton
from the University of Toronto
won a competition for automatic drug discovery.
Now, what was extraordinary here is not just that they beat
all of the algorithms developed by Merck or the international academic community,
but nobody on the team had any background in chemistry or biology or life sciences,
and they did it in two weeks.
How did they do this?
They used an extraordinary algorithm called deep learning.
So important was this that in fact the success was covered
in The New York Times in a front page article a few weeks later.
This is Geoffrey Hinton here on the left-hand side.
Deep learning is an algorithm inspired by how the human brain works,
and as a result it's an algorithm
which has no theoretical limitations on what it can do.
The more data you give it and the more computation time you give it,
the better it gets.
The New York Times also showed in this article
another extraordinary result of deep learning
which I'm going to show you now.
It shows that computers can listen and understand.
(Video) Richard Rashid: Now, the last step
that I want to be able to take in this process
is to actually speak to you in Chinese.
Now the key thing there is,
we've been able to take a large amount of information from many Chinese speakers
and produce a text-to-speech system
that takes Chinese text and converts it into Chinese language,
and then we've taken an hour or so of my own voice
and we've used that to modulate
the standard text-to-speech system so that it would sound like me.
Again, the results are not perfect.
There are in fact quite a few errors.
(In Chinese)
(Applause)
There's much work to be done in this area.
(In Chinese)
(Applause)
Jeremy Howard: Well, that was at a machine learning conference in China.
It's not often, actually, at academic conferences
that you do hear spontaneous applause,
although of course sometimes at TEDx conferences, feel free.
Everything you saw there was happening with deep learning.
(Applause) Thank you.
The transcription in English was deep learning.
The translation to Chinese and the text in the top right, deep learning,
and the construction of the voice was deep learning as well.
So deep learning is this extraordinary thing.
It's a single algorithm that can seem to do almost anything,
and I discovered that a year earlier, it had also learned to see.
In this obscure competition from Germany
called the German Traffic Sign Recognition Benchmark,
deep learning had learned to recognize traffic signs like this one.
Not only could it recognize the traffic signs
better than any other algorithm,
the leaderboard actually showed it was better than people,
about twice as good as people.
So by 2011, we had the first example
of computers that can see better than people.
Since that time, a lot has happened.
In 2012, Google announced that they had a deep learning algorithm
to watch YouTube videos
and crunched the data on 16,000 computers for a month,
and the computer independently learned about concepts such as people and cats
just by watching the videos.
This is much like the way that humans learn.
Humans don't learn by being told what they see,
but by learning for themselves what these things are.
Also in 2012, Geoffrey Hinton, who we saw earlier,
won the very popular ImageNet competition,
looking to try to figure out from one and a half million images
what they're pictures of.
As of 2014, we're now down to a six percent error rate
in image recognition.
This is better than people, again.
So machines really are doing an extraordinarily good job of this,
and it is now being used in industry.
For example, Google announced last year
that they had mapped every single location in France in two hours,
and the way they did it was that they fed street view images
into a deep learning algorithm to recognize and read street numbers.
Imagine how long it would have taken before:
dozens of people, many years.
This is also happening in China.
Baidu is kind of the Chinese Google, I guess,
and what you see here in the top left
is an example of a picture that I uploaded to Baidu's deep learning system,
and underneath you can see that the system has understood what that picture is
and found similar images.
The similar images actually have similar backgrounds,
similar directions of the faces,
even some with their tongue out.
This is not clearly looking at the text of a web page.
All I uploaded was an image.
So we now have computers which really understand what they see
and can therefore search databases
of hundreds of millions of images in real time.
So what does it mean now that computers can see?
Well, it's not just that computers can see.
In fact, deep learning has done more than that.
Complex, nuanced sentences like this one
are now understandable with deep learning algorithms.
As you can see here,
this Stanford-based system showing the red dot at the top
has figured out that this sentence is expressing negative sentiment.
Deep learning now in fact is near human performance
at understanding what sentences are about and what it is saying about those things.
Also, deep learning has been used to read Chinese,
again at about native Chinese speaker level.
This algorithm developed out of Switzerland
by people, none of whom speak or understand any Chinese.
As I say, using deep learning
is about the best system in the world for this,
even compared to native human understanding.
This is a system that we put together at my company
which shows putting all this stuff together.
These are pictures which have no text attached,
and as I'm typing in here sentences,
in real time it's understanding these pictures
and figuring out what they're about
and finding pictures that are similar to the text that I'm writing.
So you can see, it's actually understanding my sentences
and actually understanding these pictures.
I know that you've seen something like this on Google,
where you can type in things and it will show you pictures,
but actually what it's doing is it's searching the webpage for the text.
This is very different from actually understanding the images.
This is something that computers have only been able to do
for the first time in the last few months.
So we can see now that computers can not only see but they can also read,
and, of course, we've shown that they can understand what they hear.
Perhaps not surprising now that I'm going to tell you they can write.
Here is some text that I generated using a deep learning algorithm yesterday.
And here is some text that an algorithm out of Stanford generated.
Each of these sentences was generated
by a deep learning algorithm to describe each of those pictures.
This algorithm before has never seen a man in a black shirt playing a guitar.
It's seen a man before, it's seen black before,
it's seen a guitar before,
but it has independently generated this novel description of this picture.
We're still not quite at human performance here, but we're close.
In tests, humans prefer the computer-generated caption
one out of four times.
Now this system is now only two weeks old,
so probably within the next year,
the computer algorithm will be well past human performance
at the rate things are going.
So computers can also write.
So we put all this together and it leads to very exciting opportunities.
For example, in medicine,
a team in Boston announced that they had discovered
dozens of new clinically relevant features
of tumors which help doctors make a prognosis of a cancer.
Very similarly, in Stanford,
a group there announced that, looking at tissues under magnification,
they've developed a machine learning-based system
which in fact is better than human pathologists
at predicting survival rates for cancer sufferers.
In both of these cases, not only were the predictions more accurate,
but they generated new insightful science.
In the radiology case,
they were new clinical indicators that humans can understand.
In this pathology case,
the computer system actually discovered that the cells around the cancer
are as important as the cancer cells themselves
in making a diagnosis.
This is the opposite of what pathologists had been taught for decades.
In each of those two cases, they were systems developed
by a combination of medical experts and machine learning experts,
but as of last year, we're now beyond that too.
This is an example of identifying cancerous areas
of human tissue under a microscope.
The system being shown here can identify those areas more accurately,
or about as accurately, as human pathologists,
but was built entirely with deep learning using no medical expertise
by people who have no background in the field.
Similarly, here, this neuron segmentation.
We can now segment neurons about as accurately as humans can,
but this system was developed with deep learning
using people with no previous background in medicine.
So myself, as somebody with no previous background in medicine,
I seem to be entirely well qualified to start a new medical company,
which I did.
I was kind of terrified of doing it,
but the theory seemed to suggest that it ought to be possible
to do very useful medicine using just these data analytic techniques.
And thankfully, the feedback has been fantastic,
not just from the media but from the medical community,
who have been very supportive.
The theory is that we can take the middle part of the medical process
and turn that into data analysis as much as possible,
leaving doctors to do what they're best at.
I want to give you an example.
It now takes us about 15 minutes to generate a new medical diagnostic test
and I'll show you that in real time now,
but I've compressed it down to three minutes by cutting some pieces out.
Rather than showing you creating a medical diagnostic test,
I'm going to show you a diagnostic test of car images,
because that's something we can all understand.
So here we're starting with about 1.5 million car images,
and I want to create something that can split them into the angle
of the photo that's being taken.
So these images are entirely unlabeled, so I have to start from scratch.
With our deep learning algorithm,
it can automatically identify areas of structure in these images.
So the nice thing is that the human and the computer can now work together.
So the human, as you can see here,
is telling the computer about areas of interest
which it wants the computer then to try and use to improve its algorithm.
Now, these deep learning systems actually are in 16,000-dimensional space,
so you can see here the computer rotating this through that space,
trying to find new areas of structure.
And when it does so successfully,
the human who is driving it can then point out the areas that are interesting.
So here, the computer has successfully found areas,
for example, angles.
So as we go through this process,
we're gradually telling the computer more and more
about the kinds of structures we're looking for.
You can imagine in a diagnostic test
this would be a pathologist identifying areas of pathosis, for example,
or a radiologist indicating potentially troublesome nodules.
And sometimes it can be difficult for the algorithm.
In this case, it got kind of confused.
The fronts and the backs of the cars are all mixed up.
So here we have to be a bit more careful,
manually selecting these fronts as opposed to the backs,
then telling the computer that this is a type of group
that we're interested in.
So we do that for a while, we skip over a little bit,
and then we train the machine learning algorithm
based on these couple of hundred things,
and we hope that it's gotten a lot better.
You can see, it's now started to fade some of these pictures out,
showing us that it already is recognizing how to understand some of these itself.
We can then use this concept of similar images,
and using similar images, you can now see,
the computer at this point is able to entirely find just the fronts of cars.
So at this point, the human can tell the computer,
okay, yes, you've done a good job of that.
Sometimes, of course, even at this point
it's still difficult to separate out groups.
In this case, even after we let the computer try to rotate this for a while,
we still find that the left sides and the right sides pictures
are all mixed up together.
So we can again give the computer some hints,
and we say, okay, try and find a projection that separates out
the left sides and the right sides as much as possible
using this deep learning algorithm.
And giving it that hint -- ah, okay, it's been successful.
It's managed to find a way of thinking about these objects
that's separated out these together.
So you get the idea here.
This is a case not where the human is being replaced by a computer,
but where they're working together.
What we're doing here is we're replacing something that used to take a team
of five or six people about seven years
and replacing it with something that takes 15 minutes
for one person acting alone.
So this process takes about four or five iterations.
You can see we now have 62 percent
of our 1.5 million images classified correctly.
And at this point, we can start to quite quickly
grab whole big sections,
check through them to make sure that there's no mistakes.
Where there are mistakes, we can let the computer know about them.
And using this kind of process for each of the different groups,
we are now up to an 80 percent success rate
in classifying the 1.5 million images.
And at this point, it's just a case
of finding the small number that aren't classified correctly,
and trying to understand why.
And using that approach,
by 15 minutes we get to 97 percent classification rates.
So this kind of technique could allow us to fix a major problem,
which is that there's a lack of medical expertise in the world.
The World Economic Forum says that there's between a 10x and a 20x
shortage of physicians in the developing world,
and it would take about 300 years
to train enough people to fix that problem.
So imagine if we can help enhance their efficiency
using these deep learning approaches?
So I'm very excited about the opportunities.
I'm also concerned about the problems.
The problem here is that every area in blue on this map
is somewhere where services are over 80 percent of employment.
What are services?
These are services.
These are also the exact things that computers have just learned how to do.
So 80 percent of the world's employment in the developed world
is stuff that computers have just learned how to do.
What does that mean?
Well, it'll be fine. They'll be replaced by other jobs.
For example, there will be more jobs for data scientists.
Well, not really.
It doesn't take data scientists very long to build these things.
For example, these four algorithms were all built by the same guy.
So if you think, oh, it's all happened before,
we've seen the results in the past of when new things come along
and they get replaced by new jobs,
what are these new jobs going to be?
It's very hard for us to estimate this,
because human performance grows at this gradual rate,
but we now have a system, deep learning,
that we know actually grows in capability exponentially.
And we're here.
So currently, we see the things around us
and we say, "Oh, computers are still pretty dumb." Right?
But in five years' time, computers will be off this chart.
So we need to be starting to think about this capability right now.
We have seen this once before, of course.
In the Industrial Revolution,
we saw a step change in capability thanks to engines.
The thing is, though, that after a while, things flattened out.
There was social disruption,
but once engines were used to generate power in all the situations,
things really settled down.
The Machine Learning Revolution
is going to be very different from the Industrial Revolution,
because the Machine Learning Revolution, it never settles down.
The better computers get at intellectual activities,
the more they can build better computers to be better at intellectual capabilities,
so this is going to be a kind of change
that the world has actually never experienced before,
so your previous understanding of what's possible is different.
This is already impacting us.
In the last 25 years, as capital productivity has increased,
labor productivity has been flat, in fact even a little bit down.
So I want us to start having this discussion now.
I know that when I often tell people about this situation,
people can be quite dismissive.
Well, computers can't really think,
they don't emote, they don't understand poetry,
we don't really understand how they work.
So what?
Computers right now can do the things
that humans spend most of their time being paid to do,
so now's the time to start thinking
about how we're going to adjust our social structures and economic structures
to be aware of this new reality.
Thank you.
(Applause)
