DeepMind’s New Gato AI Makes Me Worried Humans Will Never Reach AGI

DeepMind today unveiled a new multimodal AI system capable of performing over 600 different tasks.

Dubbed Gato, this is arguably the most impressive all-in-one machine learning kit the world has ever seen.

According to a DeepMind blog post:

The agent, whom we call Gato, operates as a multi-modal, multi-tasking, multi-incarnation generalist police. The same network with the same weights can play Atari, caption images, chat, stack blocks with a real robot arm and much more, deciding based on its context whether to output text, joint torques, button presses or other tokens.
