Is the LLM the last invention humanity needs to make?

The success of LLMs is taking the world by storm. The Turing test seems to have been obliterated years ago, and more applications and use cases are unlocked every week. Yet many of us are skeptical: are LLMs sufficient to carry us all the way to AGI? Are they the way to creating superhuman intelligence, a transitional development, or a dead end?

Speaker Bio:

Rachel St. Clair, Ph.D. is founder and CEO of Simuli ( She did her Ph.D. in Brain Sciences with Susan Schneider at Florida Atlanta University. After her Ph.D. she became a research fellow at the Center for Future Mind. She has published over 20 papers on AI and cognitive science. Rachel's company, Simuli, makes processors that use advanced math and an innovative hardware layout to process more information per transistor by compressing information before processing. Rachel envisions an AGI as a computer system which can outperform human abilities in nearly all tasks while helping humanity avoid existential risks.

Scalable AI -- Lessons from Biological Architectures for Cognitive Ones

Resource management is a tool nature has crafted over years of evolution. This tool not only has helped organisms and humans alike scale, but grow intelligence inside complex systems. Our focus will be on the two driving mechanisms of resource management as it relates to intelligence -- how to learn new things without forgetting old things and how to bootstrap a-priori knowledge. We'll discuss how these mechanisms work, their relation to existing AI. Finally, we'll showcase some recent work in our new cognitive architecture "ReArc".
