Josh Tenenbaum, at the Computational Cognitive Science lab at MIT, describing to MIT Technology Review that the next generation AI will have a stronger connection to cognitive science and neuroscience. Professor Tenenbaum explains: “Imagine we could build a machine that starts off like a baby and learns like a child. If we could do this it’d be the basis for artificial intelligence that is actually intelligent, machine learning that could actually learn.” The artificial intelligence solutions that today is being developed lacks fundamental abilities when it comes to flexibility, common sense and general intelligence. As this is truly human abilities Tenenbaum claims that the role model to develop AI with these skills is through research of young children’s play. This was really the profound vision of AI when it was born about 50 years ago, to use human intelligence as the inspiration of its development. Source: MIT Technology Review
