Skynet it ain’t: Deep learning will not evolve into true AI, says boffin (The Register)

The Register: Skynet it ain’t: Deep learning will not evolve into true AI, says boffin. “Deep learning and neural networks may have benefited from the huge quantities of data and computing power, but they won’t take us all the way to artificial general intelligence, according to a recent academic assessment. Gary Marcus, ex-director of Uber’s AI labs and a psychology professor at the University of New York, argues that there are numerous challenges to deep learning systems that broadly fall into a series of categories.”
