[D] State of AI report 2019
Came across the state of AI report and didn’t see it posted here so thought it’d be interesting to have a discussion about the recently released report (second yearly one by Nathan Benaich and Ian Hogarth).
What stands out for you?Did they miss anything important?
Two things stand out for me so far:
1) The 2018 prediction they made that a major AI lab would go dark actually happend (MIRI lab and OpenAI -GPT2)
2) For me a as a fps CTF lover: the the Deepmind Quake III RL is wonderful to see. In 2019 they managed to include all the powerups which was a common criticism last year. (Updated blogpost here: https://deepmind.com/blog/capture-the-flag-science/)
I’m still going through the presentation myself so if I’ll see more interesting stuff I’ll add it to this thread.
