On Dec 17, 2020
@yoavgo shared
is this... a surprising finding? https://t.co/PduyPdURsB
Open

MIT neuroscientists have found reading computer code does not rely on the regions of the brain involved in language processing. Instead, it activates the “multiple demand network,” which is also recruited for complex cognitive tasks such as solving math problems or crossword puzzles.

The Turing Test is obsolete. It’s time to build a new barometer for AI

@fchollet shared
The Turing test was *never* a relevant goal for AI. We should remember that Turing never intended it as a literal test to be passed by a machine designed for that purpose, but as a philosophical device in an argument about the nature of thinking. https://t.co/1M8hQaiPoi

The head scientist for Alexa thinks the old benchmark for computing is no longer relevant for today’s AI era.
