Meta's AI chief doesn't think AI super intelligence is coming anytime soon, and is skeptical on quantum computing
Meta's chief AI scientist, Yann LeCun, believes that AI super intelligence and quantum computing are overhyped. He thinks that current AI systems are years away from human-level intelligence and that text data alone is insufficient for advanced AI development. LeCun believes that multimodal AI systems, combining visual, audio, and text data, are the next frontier. He also mentions the importance of GPU technology for AI and expresses skepticism about the efficiency of quantum computing compared to classical computers.
