Olaf Witkowski recently sat down with Lionbridge's Hengtee Lim, to talk about complexity in living systems, and the limitations of deep learning.

In his own words, Witkowski says, “artificial intelligence means that you are trying to copy human intelligence as best as possible. Artificial life says, okay, that’s good, but let’s try to understand human intelligence and recreate it from the fundamental knowledge we have acquired. It’s more constructive. It’s a bit like the Richard Feynman quote: what I cannot create, I do not understand.”
