While great strides have been made in perceptual AI (for example, in speech recognition), there’s been relatively modest progress in reasoning AI—systems that can interact with us in natural ways and understand the objects in our environment. David Barber explains why general AI will be out of reach until we address how to endow machines with knowledge of our environment.
