If AI is supposed to mimic – and one day even surpass – human intelligence, scientists first need to settle the debate about the nature of human cognition. Are humans born as blank slates or with certain cognitive predispositions? As Clive Thompson lays out in an essay for Wired, how computer scientists answer this fundamental question will determine the direction of future AI technology.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why deep learning may be insufficient as a method to enhance AI’s capabilities, and
- Why some scientists believe that teaching machines “common sense” should be the next goal of AI developers.
