Jeff Bezos And Elon Musk Have Vastly Different Views On Artificial Intelligence
While artificial intelligence continues to become a part of everyday life for consumers, the technology has gathered a pretty impressive collection of critics and fear mongers.
Don’t count Jeff Bezos among them. The Amazon founder and CEO paints a fairly rosy picture when it comes to A.I.–and he thinks there should be much more of it.
The comments came at a gala Friday put on by the Internet Association, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbyist group. During a fireside chat with the group’s CEO, Michael Beckerman, Bezos said we are currently in the “golden age” of machine learning.
“We are solving problems with machine learning and artificial intelligence that were in the realm of science fiction for the last several decades,” he said. “Natural language understanding, machine vision problems–it really is an amazing renaissance.”
