Google Says It’s Closing in on Human-Level Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence researchers are doubling down on the concept that we will see artificial general intelligence (AGI) — that’s AI that can accomplish anything humans can, and probably many we can’t — within our lifetimes.

Responding to a pessimistic op-ed published by TheNextWeb columnist Tristan Greene, Google DeepMind lead researcher Dr. Nando de Freitas boldly declared that “the game is over” and that as we scale AI, so too will we approach AGI.

Greene’s original column made the relatively mainstream case that, in spite of impressive advances in machine learning over the past few decades, there’s no way we’re gonna see human-level artificial intelligence within our lifetimes.
