Forget About It ⏱️

This post is an interesting look at the importance of forgetting to humans and a few methods used to mimic strategic forgetting in AI. 🗑️

I hadn’t given much thought to the fact that AI “memory” will function just like RAM, overwriting whenever needed or deemed necessary. But remembering things in a specific way plays an important role in human intelligence. Think of how different the sales profession would be if humans couldn’t remember seemingly extraneous details about others, there would be no personal touch. 😕

As always though, I’m interested to know what models would look like if they functioned without memory or with infinite memory. I want to know what non-human intelligences can do, and specifically what might be possible via true machine intelligence. 🤖
