Machine Learning Algorithm To Fill Data Holes

In stats I think they'd say "imputation". CS theorists might model this as "matrix completion" (if you make it a matrix), "collaborative filtering" (like in the Netflix challenge). Maybe others know ...

Machine Learning Algorithm To Fill Data Holes

Your question is underspecified. If you just want to fill the gaps, put some fixed arbitrary value there. To make the question interesting you have to specific some condition for preferring one way ...

Is a Single Linear MLP Equivalent to a Random Projection

A single MLP layer with no activation function is a linear function, as you already seem to know, and hence trivially equivalent to a projection. It is equivalent to a random projection if you choose ...

Are there proofs which show that AIs are bound to be "worse" than the human brain?

I suppose the scientific consensus is that while we are very far from there, in principle a digital artificial intelligence could mimic a human intelligence. For some recent work on the Church-...

To what extent is "advanced mathematics" needed/useful in A.I. research?

The maths involved in AI are not advanced, and are taught at the undergrad level. AI training and inferencing algorithms are in the domain of advanced Computer Science. It is a bit of a word game. ...
