Possible Ways Out for Intelligence:
yes, the future will be more complex and uncertain


Paths for intelligence will be covered and discussed taking into account the present state of AI, dominated by Deep Learning, new promises such as Artificial General Intellingence (AGI), the cycles of hype, and the two winters. Difficult goals (common sense) seem always far and uninteresting for start-ups and R&D. Will the neurosciences track be a good bet?
