Café Philo - 'What good is Artificial Intelligence?' - chaired by Dr Don Cameron & John Higgins CBE, BRLSI Convenors
Most of the popular debate today focuses on AGI – artificial general intelligence. The goal is to emulate human decision-making – i.e. make decisions based on many and varied inputs using processes that learn through experience. Most researchers tell us that we are a long way from achieving this goal. It is this field that gives rise to concerns such as robots taking over the world and wiping out humanity. But the downside of spending our time thinking about issues like this is that we miss the real issues that arise from the increased use of “narrow” AI – or machine learning.
