Making AI Useful

from the what-a-concept dept

An interesting article from MIT’s Tech Review about how most artificial intelligence research going on these days has moved away from understanding how people think towards actually building something useful. It’s an interesting shift, and it’s not one that everyone seems to agree with. They quote some big names in AI saying that we’re losing site of what’s important. Most of the article focuses on the work being done with Cyc, to build a knowledge base that has some common sense.
