Rodney Brooks, professor in robotics, claims in the article Artificial intelligence is a tool, not a threat, November 10, 2014 in Rethink robotics that recent advances of technology let us teach machines simple things such as to know whether an image is that of a cat or a dog or that it is about to fail if its temperature increases. However, Brooks also states that this is only a small part of being intelligent and that these recent advances in AI and machine learning show that the development is still in its initial stage. Another statement from Leblanc (2015) is that the next generation of AI is going to be more adaptive, self learning and intuitive.
