Today we have the pleasure of being joined by Tom Dietterich, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Oregon State University. Tom recently wrote a blog post titled "What does it mean for a machine to “understand”, and in our conversation, he goes into great detail on his thoughts. We cover a lot of ground, including Tom’s position in the debate, his thoughts on the role of systems like deep learning in potentially getting us to AGI, the “hype engine” around AI advancements, and so much more.
