 Meta's chief AI scientist: Super artificial intelligence won't come soon

Meta, the parent company of Facebook, recently held a media event in San Francisco to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its basic artificial intelligence research team.

Meta chief AI scientist and deep learning pioneer Yann LeCun said at the event that he believes that if humans want to train an artificial intelligence that not only has the ability to summarize text, but also has human-like perception and common sense in a certain sense, Intelligent systems will take decades.

His view is in sharp contrast to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang's statement last week that "AI will catch up with humans within five years."

Yang Likun believes that before the emergence of artificial intelligence with human intelligence level, society is more likely to have "cat-level" or "dog-level" artificial intelligence. The tech industry's current focus on language models and text data is insufficient to create the advanced human-like artificial intelligence systems that researchers have been dreaming of for decades.

"Texts are a very poor source of information," he said. Yang Likun explained that it may take humans 20,000 years to read the large amount of text used to train modern language models.

"And even if you train a system with 20,000 years' worth of reading material, they still don't understand: If A is the same as B, then B is the same as A. There are a lot of very basic things in the world that big models just can't get past. This kind of training understands”.
