While artificial intelligence continues to become a part of everyday life for consumers, the technology has gathered a pretty impressive collection of critics and fearmongers. Don’t count Jeff Bezos among them.
The Amazon founder and CEO paints a fairly rosy picture when it comes to A.I.–and he thinks there should be much more of it.
During a fireside chat with the CEO of the Internet Association, Michael Beckerman, Bezos said we are currently in the “golden age” of machine learning.
“We are solving problems with machine learning and artificial intelligence that were in the realm of science fiction for the past several decades,” he said. “Natural language understanding, machine vision problems–it really is an amazing renaissance.”
Bezos spoke of a future in which A.I. has application far beyond technology products.
