苹果高管的人工智能立场

Siri 联合创始人之一、苹果产品设计师 Tom Gruber 讲述了他对人工智能的看法

Gruber - the cofounder of Siri - posited his vision of computers logging everything that happens in our lives, allowing us to remember every person we ever met, along with how their favorite sports, family members, and correct pronunciation of their names, while speaking at the TED 2017 conference in Vancouver, Canada.

"I believe AI will make personal memory enhancement a reality. I think it's inevitable," he said onstage, adding that he doesn't know when or how it will happen.
