 NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang: AI will catch up with humans within 5 years

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said at the New York Times' annual DealBook Summit on Wednesday local time that artificial intelligence is surpassing humans.

He said that if general artificial intelligence (AGI) is defined as a computer that can complete tests in a way that competes with human intelligence, then "in the next five years, you will obviously see AI that can complete these tests."

Huang believes that one of the reasons the tech industry is still years away from achieving AGI is that while machine learning is currently good at tasks such as recognition and perception, it is not yet capable of performing multi-step reasoning tasks, which are a top priority for companies and researchers.

"Everyone is working on this," he said.

Huang Renxun also recalled the scene when he delivered "the world's first artificial intelligence supercomputer" to OpenAI. At that time, Musk, who was the co-founder of OpenAI, had not yet left.

"Musk heard my introduction and he said, 'I want one too,' and he told me about OpenAI. On that day, I delivered the world’s first artificial intelligence supercomputer to OpenAI.”
