Abhay Agarwal’s work focuses on a new theory of Artificial Intelligence. Traditionally Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been seen as a form of optimization that can accomplish tasks like path-planning, game-playing, and increasingly tasks such as object detection or autonomous navigation as well. An alternate strain of development in AI technology has seen astonishing innovation in creative activities such as writing and image drawing. How do we reconcile AI’s role amongst these activities, and in society in general? How are we to conceptualize AI’s relationship to humanity — as autonomous agents, augmented super-powers, or simply tools for thought? Abhay calls his new theory of AI “Post-Cognitive Design.”
