Facebook AI Chief Yann LeCun Says Machines Are Decades Away From Matching the Human Brain
“Despite AI’s seeming pervasiveness in almost every industry, Dr. LeCun says researchers are still decades away from building machines that can match the intelligence of humans. Even less probable is the Hollywood-like idea that nefarious robots will be unleashed on humanity.
‘We’re still quite far from building artificial general intelligence, and certainly far from superhuman AI. It’s not like we have to worry about some secretive company coming up with a solution in five years. It’s not happening,’ he said in a speech Wednesday hosted by New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering Future Labs startup program.
