Artificial Instincts AI: Hype vs. Reality

    • Technology

Does AI have intuition? It’s tough to say. Some experts predict AI will take the guesswork out of stock markets, come out on top in high-stakes competitive games, and figure out what we’re thinking before we think it. But will it? And how soon? With so much data being fed into AI, it’s reasonable to assume raw computational power and better information are stand-ins for intuition itself, yet that doesn’t entirely explain AI’s ability to be … well … truly intelligent.

Jessica is joined by emerging technologies guru Dave Graham of Dell Technologies, Raphael Fiorentino of AI investing app Butterwire, Victor Kristof of sports prognostication startup Kickoff AI, Ani Kembhavi of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and Professor Tuomas Sandholm of Carnegie Mellon University.

AI’s capacity for augmenting human intelligence is already helping humans making more educated guesses in several different arenas, by looking at wide swaths of historical data and trend analysis. But can it win at poker? Jessica goes head-to-head in Texas Hold ‘Em to find out just how intuitive AI can be.

Watch Jessica try to call the AI's bluff at our YouTube channel.
