This week, a method for predicting follow-up earthquakes, and the issues with deep learning systems in AI.
In this episode:
00:47 Which is the big quake?
A new technique could allow seismologists to better predict if a larger earthquake will follow an initial tremor. Research Article: Real-time discrimination of earthquake foreshocks and aftershocks; News and Views: Predicting if the worst earthquake has passed
07:46 Research Highlights
10:03 Problems for pattern-recognition
Deep-learning allows AIs to better understand the world, but the technique is not without its issues. News Feature: Why deep-learning AIs are so easy to fool
