BI 100.3 Can We Scale Up to AGI with Current Tech?

Part 3 in our 100th episode celebration. Previous guests answered the question: Given the continual surprising progress in AI powered by scaling up parameters and using more compute, while using fairly generic architectures (eg. GPT-3): Do you think the current trend of scaling compute can lead to human level AGI? If not, what’s missing? It likely won’t surprise you that the vast majority answer “No.” It also likely won’t surprise you, there is differing opinion on what’s missing.
