Google a step closer to developing machines with human-like intelligence
Geege Schuman stashed this in AI
Although the work is at an early stage, he said there is a plausible path from the current software to a more sophisticated version that would have something approaching human-like capacity for reasoning and logic. “Basically, they’ll have common sense.”
The idea that thoughts can be captured and distilled down to cold sequences of digits is controversial, Hinton said. “There’ll be a lot of people who argue against it, who say you can’t capture a thought like that,” he added. “But there’s no reason why not. I think you can capture a thought by a vector.”
What could possibly go wrong? :)
By the way, I find it hard to believe Google is closer than the dozens of AI startups.
