It also provides the directions and lights to overcome the limits of deep learning algorithms to achieve higher levels learning capabilities.

Deep Learning Algorithms in AI Power and Limitations

Types of Machine Learning:

There are three core types of machine learning: supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning. In supervised learning, the algorithm uses the training data to learn a link between the input and the outputs. It predicts the output from the trained network.  

Unsupervised learning does not use output data. It uses dimensionality reduction algorithms, Clustering algorithm, such as K-means etc. The most common unsupervised learning method is cluster analysis. Unsupervised learning algorithms can perform more complex processing tasks than supervised learning systems.

 

Reinforcement learning algorithms attempt to find the best ways to earn the greatest reward.… Read more..

Artificial Intelligence with Emotional Intelligence Issues and Challenges

Currently, deep learning modules of AI based systems lacks the emotional aspects of human intelligence. However, to fix the subjective issues like relationship, depression, anxiety and emotional issues future artificial intelligence based  systems like cyborgs require deep emotional intelligence modules.   AI is expanding and evolving itself in many technological fronts. It is not only limited by Deep learning algorithms, but expanding its horizons in deeper levels of human consciousness. Modern AI is tremendously successful for pattern recognition, voice recognition, face identification and machine learning. Self-driven cars are already on road in testing phase.  But, in today’s world AI is more needed in dealing with emotions like anger, impatience, disappointment, frustration, surprise, happiness, and gratitude. This article covers the scope, issues and challenges of AI for building emotional intelligence.

Need for Combining Artificial Intelligence with Emotional Intelligence

Human emotion is deeply associated with motivation, decision, evaluation, learning, character, intelligence, desires, and awareness. Thus, nearly all human psychological activities are subject to emotional influences and excitation. Self-awareness is the significance of the mental activities of a human being. Therefore, it should be one of the core ideas of AI with emotional intelligence.

Some researchers claims that emotional intelligence accounts for 75 percent of a person’s success and perhaps that will be more true for the success of future artificial intelligence based cyborgs and other systems.

Maitri, Karuna, Mudita, and Upeksha – The Four Immeasurable Brahmaviharas

Compassion Meditation – The Four Immeasurable Virtues: Maitri, Karuna, Mudita, and Upeksha

Sri Amit Ray talks about the importance of the four immeasurable Brahmaviharas – compassion meditation techniques and attitudes. They are the highest form of all virtues. The four Immeasurable Virtues are: Maitri, Karuna, Mudita and Upeksha. Brahmaviharas means divine abiding.  Dr. Ray talks about the nature of Brahmaviharas and the importance of Brahmaviharas. He also discusses how these four virtues increases our emotional intelligence and happiness in life. The four Immeasurable divine virtues are explained in details.

Purpose of yoga and meditation is to get a permanent blessed and peaceful state of mind. Being able to control our emotions is key to our happiness as well as our relationships. Though there is nothing inherently wrong with any kind of emotion, some of them can lead to major amounts of distress when left unchecked. By changing our thoughts, we would not change the situation, however, we would change the way it affects our life.

Maitri-Karuna-Mudita-Upeksha-The Four Immeasurable Brahmaviharas

Four Immeasurable Brahmaviharas and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra

These four virtues are mentioned in the teachings of Buddha, Patanjali’s yoga sutra and Upanishads. They are the four types of attitudes towards people and society. The yoga sutra (1.33) states that blessed state of mind is developed through meeting happy people with friendliness, those who are suffering with compassion, those who are virtuous with delight, and indifference or neutrality towards those we perceive as wicked or evil.

Four Immeasurable Brahmaviharas as Taught by Buddha

The Buddha taught the four great virtues, known as the four “Brahmaviharas”. The word Brahmavihara is Pali, and comes from two words. First, there is the word brahma. In the Buddha’s time, a brahma was a deity who lived in a heavenly realm. The word vihara means abode or dwelling. Hence, the word Brahmavihara means dwelling in the realm of blessedness. They are mindfulness practices that protect the mind from falling into habitual patterns of reactivity with the cultivation of our best intentions. We all have the potential to abide in loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity. When we know how to do this, these capacities become an inner wealth, more valuable than any external wealth. Read More »Maitri, Karuna, Mudita, and Upeksha – The Four Immeasurable Brahmaviharas
