What’s the dumbest mistake you can think of that has been made by artificial intelligence, or AI? You can define dumb in whatever way you like, from obvious to deadly or catastrophic. Just think of a few mistakes, and ask the same question for humanity, or just people you know, or maybe just yourself. How do all those mistakes compare for stupidity?
I’m currently learning new words and terms at a pretty good clip due to the winter that is giving me lots of cause to stay indoors and learn. I’m also trying to absorb world art history as quickly as I can from Khan Academy, before I really get into painting because I want to compose and paint with that reference background! As a result, I’ve got words for about a month’s worth of posts.
So here we go!
Narrow AI (artificial intelligence)
Artificial intelligence that is generally good at only one task or one task at a time. Compare to General AI that is good at many and multiple tasks at once, like the AI you see in science-fiction that is quite far away from the AI we have today, as awesome as it may seem (or fearsome to some people).
