Virtual Lecture/ Discussion: TOWARD A FOUNDATION FOR ARTIFICIAL GENERAL INTELLIGENCE (AGI) with Gary Marcus (co-author Rebooting AI)

Marcus, co-author of Rebooting AI: Building Artificial Intelligence We Can Trust and author of the substack AI We Can Trust, joins us to discuss large pretrained language models. Examples such as GPT-3 and PaLM have generated enormous enthusiasm and are capable of producing remarkably fluent language. But they have also been criticized on many grounds, and described as “stochastic parrots.” Are they adequate as a basis for Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and, if not, what would a better foundation for general intelligence look like?
