  • May 20, 2021: Lecture note on Human Survivability Studies Information Wisdom Theory


We study interdisciplinary methodologies like network algorithms and optimization, machine learning, deep learning, etc, with their connection to learning theory, wisdom and life. We propose Information Wisdom theory with a Wisdom Equation: Wisdom = Learning + Random Choice, and use them to study the limitation, future, expectation and danger of AI, as well as the nature of life, creativity, future life/world. See an overview (Apr 2022).
