Meta’s AI chief doesn’t think AI super intelligence is coming anytime soon

Summary:

Yann LeCun, chief AI scientist at Meta, believes that current AI systems are decades away from achieving sentience and common sense. He disagrees with Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, who predicts AI will surpass humans in less than five years. LeCun suggests that the focus on language models and text data is insufficient for creating advanced, human-like AI systems. Meta is researching how transformer models can be adapted to work with different types of data, such as audio, image, and video, to enhance AI capabilities. Nvidia’s GPUs have been instrumental in training large language models. LeCun expresses skepticism towards quantum computing, stating that classical computers are more efficient for solving most problems. He suggests that practical quantum machines are still far in the future.
