Can computers improve themselves?
According to Frans Oliehoek, associate professor at Delft University of Technology, artificial intelligence is not yet able to address highly complex challenges confronting human beings in the real world, such as optimising the use of limited road space in dense urban areas.
With today’s AI methods, says Oliehoek, “you are still using a model which requires training on millions and millions of games. The extent to which current algorithms can learn in the real world is very questionable. If you dropped a robot with these algorithms into a real world situation, it wouldn’t necessarily work.”
