POINT OF VIEW

Researchers are masochists. They want harder problems to solve. If it is easier, somebody [else] will solve it.

Subbarao Kambhampati

Professor of Computer Science, Arizona State University


In brief

  • While human babies went from perceptual to cognitive learning, AI systems started with cognitive learning and only recently started doing perceptual intelligence. Perceptual abilities allowed AI systems to perform image recognition.
  • Tacit knowledge is the knowledge a human person has gained through living experience that is often difficult to put into words or otherwise communicate. Training AI to carry out tasks that require tacit knowledge is a challenge.
  • Professor Subbarao Kambhampati thinks we should design a future where AI systems and humans work together as augmented intelligence. However, he also notes that “Seeing is NOT believing”, given that AI can manipulate visual elements almost indistinguishable from reality.
