"A Skeptical Take on The A.I. Revolution," Gary Marcus interviewed by Ezra Klein

Gary Marcus, about whom I recently posted a note here, was interviewed by Ezra Klein for his NY Times podcast, and the interview is available here.

Among other things they discuss the strengths and weaknesses of ChatGPT and the ways in which future systems might come to understand what they are talking about.

In my view, Marcus’s grounding in cognitive science makes his perspective more interesting and valuable than most of the other perspectives I’ve seen in the media.
