About this Episode

Today we're joined by David Ferrucci, Founder, CEO, and Chief Scientist at Elemental Cognition, a company focused on building natural learning systems that understand the world the way people do. David, who also led the team that built the IBM Watson system that won on Jeopardy, poses the question: "Are we being honest about how difficult AI really is?" In our conversation, we discuss the role of "understanding" in the context of AI systems, and the types of commitments and investments needed to achieve even modest levels of understanding in these systems. David also shares his thoughts on the power of deep learning, what the path to AGI looks like, and the need for hybrid systems to get there.
