Exciting times for #ArtificialIntelligence research. Companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook are pushing the limits of applications for the latest advances in AI to make their tools more effective. But there is a still a large gap between learning from data, identifying objects in images and such activities and the level of understanding and analysis that humans can perform. There is growing discussion these days of trying to shift the focus of AI research from the highly specialized components of recent years and to restart the big project of a more general study of intelligence. It seems that Paul Allen in interested in this as well and is starting a new AI research institute in Seattle to push the next frontier in AI research.
