Rethinking the Place of Thinking in Intelligent Behaviour
It seems clear that in people, ordinary commonsense thinking is an essential part of acting intelligently. Yet the most popular current approach to Artificial Intelligence downplays this thinking aspect and emphasizes learning from massive amounts of data instead. This talk goes over these notions and attempts to make the case that computers systems based even on extensive learning alone might have serious dangers that are not immediately obvious.
