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

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

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

According to a DeepMind blog post:

The agent, referred to as Gato, operates as a generalized policy of multiple modes, multiple tasks, and multiple integrations. The same network with the same weights can play Atari, subtitle images, chat, block stacks with a real robot arm and much more, deciding based on its environment whether to export text, hinge moments, button presses or other badges.
