AI, chihuahuas, and accents

Posted on: February 22, 2020

I like pointing out that the current state of artificial intelligence (AI) is no match for natural human stupidity. Consider the examples below.

Since this tweet in 2017, image recognition might have improved so that AI trained with specific datasets can distinguish between chihuahuas and muffins.

The video below highlights another barrier — AI struggles with human accents.

Overcoming this (and other barriers) might be a helped by access to broader and better datasets. But such AI still operate at the level of artificial narrow intelligence (see Wheeler’s levels of AI). They are certainly not at the level of artificial general intelligence, much less at artificial super intelligence.
