Perimeter Institute: Artificial intelligence and the complexity frontier

Roger Melko explores whether advanced computers will soon rival the human mind 

Advances in artificial intelligence are occurring at a rate that’s surprising even experts in the field. Before long, will there be anything only good old human intuition is equipped to tackle?
