Are we on the brink of debunking Moravec’s Paradox? In the 1980s, AI and robotics researcher Hans Moravec highlighted a counterintuitive aspect of AI: tasks requiring high-level reasoning – like chess or Go – are easier for AI to master than basic sensory and motor skills – such as walking or identifying your mom’s face – which humans find instinctive. Adding complexity, these “simpler” skills actually demand much more computational power. This insight sheds light on the complexity of replicating human-like perception and dexterity, outcomes of millions of years of evolution, as opposed to logical reasoning, a more recent development. In today’s AI and ML landscape, this paradox underscores the challenges in creating robots and AI systems capable of seamlessly navigating and interacting with the physical world.
