If you’ve played Texas Hold’em, then you know how tough it is to be a good poker player. Lots of venture capitalists like to play poker, so it wasn’t surprising to see one who thought to himself “let’s see how good artificial intelligence (AI) really is“. He consulted a team of engineers and computer scientists to see where they might be able to exploit the AI agent named Lengpudashi. They then played 36,000 hands over 5 days and the AI agent kicked the isht out of them. We’ll stick to playing rock-paper-scissors with AI, but all of this is leading to some serious visibility for AI as an emerging technology – which as investors make us want to get some skin in the game.
Quick Summary (Extracted by Machine Learning)
- There are certainly some similarities between AI and dot-com.
- Let s first start by anticipating what path AI might take if it were to turn into the next dot-com.
- We know we re trying to draw a parallel between AI and dot-com way too early but that s the point.
- Will we see history repeat itself and have the dot-com bubble we saw peak in early 2000s all over again, except this time with AI?
- Thirdly, both dot-com technology and AI technology are industry agnostic and have thousands of potential applications.
