AI Acquires Spatial Reasoning Abilities, in a Victory for Our Machine Overlords

#AI: AI Acquires Spatial Reasoning Abilities, in Another Victory for Our M... #Innovation

  • In a pathbreaking paper published last week, DeepMind revealed fresh inroads towards the creation of an artificial general intelligence that uses spatial reasoning – what might be likened to the holy grail of computer science and the source of interminable angst for Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk.
  • The focus of the DeepMind paper concerns spatial reasoning, in particular the ability to grasp the relation of objects to each other.
  • The first thing to understand when attempting to parse this latest breakthrough from DeepMind is the difference between narrow artificial intelligence and AGI (Artificial General Intelligence).
  • While this is no doubt an important part of human intelligence, allowing us to master games like chess and for a doctor to read an x-ray and diagnose a bone fracture, among many other things, it’s by no means the whole story.
  • It turns out pattern matching is just one algorithm within a large tool chest of algorithms that make up general intelligence.
