We need a new language for artificial intelligence, writes UW CSE’s Pedro Domingos. He proposes a new mathematical language that combines logic and probability.
“The goal of artificial intelligence (at least according to the field’s founders) is to create computers whose intelligence equals or surpasses humans’. Achieving this goal is the famous ‘AI problem.’ To some, AI is the manifest destiny of computer science. To others, it’s a failure: clearly, the AI problem is nowhere near being solved. Why? For the most part, the answer is simple: no one is really trying to solve it.”
