Steve Grand: Moving AI out of its infancy: Changing our Preconceptions

An excellent article by Steve Grand, on where he thinks AI needs to go. It's like a summary of the main points in his book "Growing Up With Lucy".

The main points he makes are:

  • The purpose of the brain is to compensate for all the time it takes for the nerve signals to travel to it and back again.

  • Brains don’t make decisions

  • Brains perform coordinate transforms

  • Nervous tissue is a new state of matter

  • The more complex a robot is, the easier it is to make progress
