@GaryMarcus shared
RT @PantheonBooks: From REBOOTING AI authors @GaryMarcus and Ernest Davis: “The great irony of common sense—and indeed AI itself—is that it is stuff that pretty much everybody knows, yet nobody seems to know what exactly it is or how to build machines that possess it.” https://t.co/lNZAvMtlrC

By Gary Marcus and Ernest Davis Artificial Intelligence has seen radical advances of many kinds over the last years, roundly beating human champions in games like Go and poker that once seemed out of reach. Advances in other domains like speech recognition, machine translation, and photo ...

Solving Rubik’s Cube with a Robot Hand

RT @OpenAI: We've trained an AI system to solve the Rubik's Cube with a human-like robot hand. This is an unprecedented level of dexterity for a robot, and is hard even for humans to do. The system trains in an imperfect simulation and quickly adapts to reality: https://t.co/O04izt3KvO https://t.co/8lGhU2pPck
