The long-term future of AI(and what we can do about it): Daniel Dewey
This is more about harvesting funding for computer hardware and software than about anything we can take seriously.
@01:20“[AI] It’s a bit like a particle. There are arguments as to why it should exist, but we haven’t been able to confirm it yet.”
And you won’t either. Particles are not fundamental, rather they are only a manifestation of an underlying (and completely fundamental) field.
The current AI is lost in, just like physics, a compulsion to explain the world in only physical terms. Meaning of World, Thought and Language will continue to elude them as long as they keep on chasing a failed and bereft paradigm. It sure is trendy, but it’s false.
