I will allow myself to say that the skill I am constantly training every day is my ability to make decisions, it'd really just called critical thinking.
I like informing myself about what is going on in the field of AI, even if I have to watch something that I consider 'easy' or for 'beginners', as I feel that this allows me to have a broad idea of what is actually going on and I could make better decisions in the future based on that extra information I acquired.
I was watching the latest course by Andrew Ng in Coursera: AI for Everyone and I just started feeling extremely identified with the fact that people have a wrong idea of what AI is actually capable of doing nowadays. Basically, he divides AI into two subfields:
- ANI (Artificial Narrow Intelligence)
- AGI (Artificial General Intelligence)
ANI is the ability of a computer to perform a specific task extremely well while AGI refers to the ability of a machine to learn a task that a human being can. While nowadays we are capable of making machines perform a single task (ANI) we are quite far from human level AI (AGI). I see quite a lot of people trying to sell 'AI systems' that in reality are not valid and whose target are, obviously, people outside the field who trust this because of a poor critical thinking skill.
Be smart, be careful, and never stop questioning until you actually prove that something is valid.
