Why Artificial Intelligence Struggles with Causality


Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can spot patterns that humans can't. But they still can't explain, say, what caused one object to collide with another. The concept of AI involves other subsets such as machine learning and deep learning. Many AI experts predict that machines may outperform humans at every task within 45 years. Self driving cars hurtling along the highway and weaving through traffic have less understanding of what might cause an accident than children who have just learned to walk.
