Here’s how Martin described his presentation: 

To be able to build an artificial intelligence that can understand the world and learn from experience, we must better understand the very process of understanding and learning.

We are going to do a somewhat philosophical dive, based on AI research, into a model of an artificial mind. This model hopefully allows us to understand and quantify what makes something fun, boring, surprising, interesting, or beautiful. And it gives us a way to artificially model such concepts, and understand how they relate to creativity, curiosity, and learning about the world.

We will also take a peek at the recent achievements in AI (such as ChatGPT) and compare our model with the way such AIs learn and understand the world.
