Triangulation 270: Jerry Kaplan

October 24, 201670 min
Jerry Kaplan has been working on artificial intelligence since the 1950s. He explains to Leo the difference between general artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation. He also explains why he thinks the idea of the Singularity is nonsense, that the real thing the Turing Test describes is trickery rather than intelligence, and that much of the current hype over the development of AI is just that: hype. He does think that the current growth of machine learning can and will transform the economy - many jobs will be replaced through automation, but many other opportunities will be created.
