DeepMind’s new Gato AI makes me fear humans will never achieve AGI

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

Dubbed Gato, it’s arguably the most impressive all-in-one machine learning kit the world has seen yet.

According to a DeepMind blog post:

The agent, which we call Gato, works as a multimodal, multi-task, multi-embodiment generalist policy. The same network with the same weights can play Atari, caption images, chat, stack blocks with a real robotic arm and much more, and decide based on context whether to execute text, joint pairing, button presses or other tokens.
