Murray is now working on ways to make more general AI systems.
"Currently, AI systems are very narrow and focused on a specific task," he said. "If you can find some of the generalization capabilities humans have and incorporate those into AI systems, you'll be able to adapt your AI systems to news tasks quickly, without having to train them for hundreds of thousands of hours."
IBM is working with neuroscientists to understand some of the mechanisms that are used in the brain and how these translate into AI processes. It will lead to systems that ultimately have a human-like level of generality and be able to switch from problem to problem.
When asked about what AI holds for the year ahead, Murray said: "The big news
