Why artificial intelligence has no common sense

We are surrounded by artificial intelligence. From the Google Home and Amazon Echo, to Facebook’s facial recognition and whatever it is Huawei’s doing. It’s easy to become desensitized to the term and misunderstand the current state of AI we live in. Verge video director Becca Farsace talks to some experts in the field of AI to better pinpoint what all this AI really means. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/G5RXGs

    Talk to an economist and ask its affect on each of us in future!

    A machine that make decision like input A/B/C if A/B then CDF, if CDF (base on database) output E …. I don't consider this AI.
    Its has always been there but because of computing power and network development, that criteria/trigger rules database just becomes bigger.

    I feel like The verge made this video 50 different times with different titles

    Computers, no matter how "smart" will ALWAYS do what they're told.

    It is an interesting video. Very informative. This will certainly make good project.

    I hope I can see terminator in my living age….. human will be inferior when AI become smarter than us, now, we treat inferior species like trash, it's coming…. oh yeah

    hi there… A.I for me is a level that suits my everyday use… well I'm going to get a Google Pixel 2 XL very soon and what I like about A.I is like another web… except this version is personal to you, yet it will have the knowledge of everyone and everything if you want to venture there.
    A.I is like a friend you can always count on no matter what

    I hereby give my allegiance to our AI overlords and take no responsibility of this heresy

    our words are macro keys for ai to do it's function ,so ai is still not at all like Terminator

    actually The last words about Siri and Alexa are not truth, there are much more AI devices and programs,wich are much more complex, and that fact makes me think, that this video is just a kind of advertisement and popularization of modern artificial intelligence ideas

    A.I today is just like schools, you feed kids information then ask them to perform a task(test &exam) without teaching them critical thinking. When you introduce common sense to A.I that’s when critical thinking kicks in and they decide…. you know! The world might be a better place without this demographic of people

    In the video, it was mentioned that we should look into specific applications for AI and see how to regulate those. I still think that we can benefit from a blanket regulation on AI. Such as creation of AI technologies should not lead to the direct endangering of people's lives… something like that. Or that AI should not be left to make a moral decision, etc.

    Yea humans seem to be lacking in that dept as well.
