Today we’re joined by David Ferrucci, Founder, CEO, and Chief Scientist at Elemental Cognition, a company focused on building natural learning systems that understand the world the way people do. In our conversation, we discuss: 

• His experience leading the team that built the IBM Watson system that won on Jeopardy.


• The role of “understanding” in the context of AI systems, and the types of commitments and investments needed to achieve even modest levels of understanding in these systems.

• His thoughts on the power of deep learning, what the path to AGI looks like, and the need for hybrid systems to get there.
