Embodied AI: Genetic vs. Experience Based Intelligence

Posted by Peter Rudin on 17. January 2020 in News

In a recent debate about the future of AI between Gary Marcus, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at NYU and Yoshua Bengio, Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Montréal, the question came up of how much information the human genome can encode.

This is a hot topic in AI these days, as people debate how much prior knowledge needs to be pre-wired into AI systems, in order to get them to achieve something more akin to natural intelligence.

Making a true AI may require building something that has to do more than solve some specific computational problems.  It must be embodied.
