“There’s no way you can have an AI system that’s humanlike that doesn’t have language at the heart of it,” says Josh Tenenbaum, a professor of cognitive science and computation at MIT
In May Google released Parsey McParseface, an AI trained text parser integrated into tensorflow and delivering high levels of accuracy.
Fei-Fei Li, director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab, believes that today’s machine-learning and AI tools won’t be enough to bring about real AI. “It’s not just going to be data-rich deep learning,” she says. Li believes AI researchers will need to think about things like emotional and social intelligence. “We [humans] are terrible at computing with huge data,” she says, “but we’re great at abstraction and creativity.”
