If AI Thinks Like a Human It May Get Depressed

As artificial intelligence systems become more sophisticated, we’ve grown accustomed to hearing about how they take over human domains. AI can now beat humans at Go, write clickbait and screenplays, pick out targets in drone image data, and drive our cars. Most of these AI systems are neural networks, a type of computing architecture loosely modeled after the human brain. For now, each of these neural nets are compartmentalized and optimized for one particular task—the AI that can beat us at Go doesn’t know how to drive a car. The hope is that one day, however, these “narrow” AI systems will coalesce into an artificial general intelligence (AGI), or a computer that is able to a wide variety of tasks as well or better than a human
