Deep Learning is Coming of Age

In the early days of artificial intelligence (AI), Hans Moravec asserted what became known as Moravec’s paradox: "it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult-level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility.” This assertion held…
