Artificial Intelligence Hits the Barrier of Meaning

@graphific shared
Contemporary AI systems can “do” (some) stuff well, but don’t really understand what it is they’re doing. More and more research shows that deep learning systems are impressive, but rather unreliable https://t.co/OaUMRSrG2L https://t.co/uqGWzrzSfM

Machine learning algorithms don’t yet understand things the way humans do — with sometimes disastrous consequences.
