At AI’s Heart Lies A Dark Secret That Everyone Needs to Know About

ai_secrets

Machine learning technologies are great. They are great for researchers, for doctors, and for businessmen. However, inherently, the actual workings of any given machine-learning technology are more or less opaque when compared to a system that is hand-coded. And they aren’t opaque just to normal readers on the internet. Even computer scientists who work in …

Machines Are Still Dumb: Here Is How To Make Them Smart

machine_who_think

In order to build machines that are truly intelligent, humans need to teach them more about phenomena such as cause and effect. That’s according to Judea Pearl. Judea Pearl has argued for many years that artificial intelligence has not managed to reach its true potential quickly enough because it has been stuck for more than …
