A look back into the computing future: AI researchers argue about the path to artificial general intelligence.

Deepmind’s general-purpose AI Gato has once again sparked a discussion that is well known to the AI sciences: how can we achieve general AI? Renowned AI researchers engage in a vigorous tweet duel over whether the Gato AI, composed of many small, specialized models, can meet the requirements of a general AI if its performance is scaled only through more data and training.

Now, with Meta’s AI chief LeCun, an icon of AI research joins the discussion – and comes to a sober conclusion: “We have a number of obstacles to clear, and we don’t know how.”
