Of the grand open challenges with AI

We can’t put the genie back in the bottle.

AI is all pervasive- progressing along so many directions and is bound to continue.

But for one of the most profound scientific fields that will affect every aspect of human life, it is difficult to anticipate all of the opportunities and issues that will arise from AI.

AI100 is a One Hundred Year Study of Artificial Intelligence hosted by Stanford. Written by a panel of 17 study authors, its objective is to anticipate how the effects of AI will ripple through every aspect of how people work, live and play.

It’s 2021 Report discusses some of the most inspiring and grand open challenges with AI-

● RoboCup has the goal of developing a fully autonomous robot team capable of beating the FIFA World Cup champion soccer (football) team by 2050.

●The International Math Olympiad (IMO) is an international mathematics competition for high-school students. Experts are looking to build an AI system that can win a gold medal in the IMO.

●The AI Scientist challenge envisions the development, by 2050, of AI systems that can engage in autonomous scientific research.

The grand challenges aside, the societal impact of AI seems to typically incline to the extremes. As a panelist remarked, “The complexities of the field have tended to give rise to uninformed and misguided perceptions and commentaries.”

Do you think we should shift to a position that takes into account the actual AI capabilities?

One that creates a more accurate and nuanced view of AI?

While still dominated by human players, even in their researcher clothes, the best robot teams can occasionally score in the yearly human-robot match.
