That challenge won’t be solved instantly, and it’s slowly changing. While technical knowledge is still too often required, there are ways in which development time can be shortened. One way that’s been happening has been is the increased availability of pre-built models.
A few years back, a tech CEO […]

Why AI Moonshots Miss

Since the very beginning of the computer revolution, researchers have dreamed of creating computers that would rival the human brain. Our brains are information machines that use inputs to generate outputs, and so are computers. How hard could it be to build computers that work as well as our brains?
In 1954 a Georgetown-IBM team predicted that language translation programs would be perfected in three to five years. In 1965 Herbert Simon said that “machines will be capable, within twenty […]
