Truth and Myth around AI
Sébastien Bratières (Director of the AI Programme at Pi School) goes through the trends of AI in the past decades, explaining what can be done today and what might be achieved in the future.
At his masterclass at the Human-Machine Interaction event, Sébastien states that "all we can do reasonably well nowadays are narrow tasks. We can't do anything that has to do with common sense, reasoning, abstracting concepts, or generalizing from domain to domain."
