  1. 68 | Melanie Mitchell on Artificial Intelligence and the Challenge of Common Sense

    Artificial intelligence is better than humans at playing chess or go, but still has trouble holding a conversation or driving a car. A simple way to think about the discrepancy is through the lens of “common sense” — there are features of the world, from the fact that tables are solid to the prediction that a tree won’t walk across the street, that humans take for granted but that machines have difficulty learning. Melanie Mitchell is a computer scientist and complexity researcher who has written a new book about the prospects of modern AI. We talk about deep learning and other AI strategies, why they currently fall short at equipping computers with a functional “folk physics” understanding of the world, and how we might move forward.

  2. In The Moment podcast: 43: Melanie Mitchell with Steve Scher—A Thinking Human’s Guide to AI

    In this week’s interview, Chief Correspondent Steve Scher talks with Melanie Mitchell about Artificial Intelligence. Scher and Mitchell delve into the state of AI today, exploring the classifications that make something "intelligent" and the ways in which AI and humans process information differently. Mitchell highlights the complexities of human language as a particular area of difficulty for AI, and expresses the importance of developing machine intelligences with effective communication skills in order to help imbue them with an understanding of human values and consciousness. Together Scher and Mitchell examine the future of AI—how far the field has advanced and how far it still has to go. Get an insider’s look and stay in the know about what’s going on in this moment at Town Hall.
