An article from The Economist Rise of the Machines on the status of AI, and where it seems to be heading.

In my opinion, the direction of AI should not focus on how much the system can utilize the input data, rather, it is how much the computer can learn by itself, like a child, and reuse the learned data. Strengthen its knowledge (data) to extend its networks through abstract information and quantitative data, so that it can “grow”and become its own identity. In other words, it’s not about 1 + 1 = 2, it’s about why and when 1 + 1 does not equal to 2.
