[ML] The Nature of Intelligence

From The Gradient:

Current systems can regurgitate knowledge, but they can't really  understand in a developing story, who did what to whom, where, when, and  why; they have no real sense of time, or place, or causality.

The article itself is fascinating, and highlights quite accurately what one of the most advanced deep learning system out there can do in regards to language. Definitely a must read, whether you're convinced that we're a few epochs away from having Her-level AIs or that we are still worlds away.

As for me, every time someone talks about AI, I tend to respond "we can't reliably define intelligence... How could we create artificial intelligence?"
