Extra-condensed knowledge


Humans have struggled to make truly intelligent machines. Maybe we need to let them get on with it themselves.
  • An artificial-intelligence researcher at Uber, Rui Wang likes to leave the Paired Open-Ended Trailblazer, a piece of software he helped develop, running on his laptop overnight. POET is a kind of training dojo for virtual bots.
  • But it’s not what the bots are learning that’s exciting—it’s how they’re learning. POET generates the obstacle courses, assesses the bots’ abilities, and assigns their next challenge, all without human involvement. Step by faltering step, the bots improve via trial and error. “At some point it might jump over a cliff like a kung fu master,” says Wang. 
  • It may seem basic at the moment, but for Wang and a handful of other researchers, POET hints at a revolutionary new way to create supersmart machines: by getting AI to make itself. 
  • Wang’s former colleague Jeff Clune is among the biggest boosters of this idea. Now dividing his time between the University of British Columbia and OpenAI, he has the backing of one of the world’s top artificial-intelligence labs.
  • Clune calls the attempt to build truly intelligent AI the most ambitious scientific quest in human history. 
  • Today, seven decades after serious efforts to make AI began, we’re still a long way from creating machines that are anywhere near as smart as humans, let alone smarter. 
  • Clune thinks POET might point to a shortcut. 
  • If AI starts to generate intelligence by itself, there’s no guarantee that it will be human-like. Rather than humans teaching machines to think like humans, machines might teach humans new ways of thinking.
