比尔·盖茨最近读了很多人工智能方面的书,他的妻子这样的说

Gate’s wife, Melinda Gates, who runs the Gates Foundation with him, explained that she always knows what’s on Bill’s mind just by looking at his book bag. Recently, she said, it’s been filled with AI books. “So while you think he’s working on philanthropy, he’s also working on AI,” she said, laughing.

盖茨还推荐了《主算法》这本书,作为曾经害怕人工智能的名人,盖茨似乎在修正自己的悲观态度,尽管他还在强调人工智能将给人类社会带来巨大影响,尤其就业问题,但他还是有一些乐观的想法:

Even those concerns did not dampen Gate’s enthusiasm for AI. He called it the “holy grail”[1] as he envisions a future “with machines that are capable and more capable than human intelligence.”

事实上,现阶段而言,所谓的人工智能更像是一个宣传用语 数据科学家 Monica Rogati 早前也写过一篇文章强调:机器学习或深度学习的确在进步,但深度学习终究只是数学游戏,而不是魔术,人工智能距离承诺的目标还很远
