Amid the artificial intelligence revolution, researchers are scrapping the pursuit of human-like A.I. in favor of putting the advances to date into real-world use, an expert on the topic told Axios.

"We have pretty much stopped trying to mirror human thinking out of the box," Carnegie-Mellon University computer science dean Andrew Moore told Axios. "We are focusing on engineering [what has already been invented]."

Moore's focus is now "low-power computing," computers doing the power-intensive work at a fraction of the power, adding to speed and lowering cost, he added.

For instance, per Moore, A.I. computing on self-driving car chip raises the temperature of a car by 10 degrees and therefore requires more energy to keep cool.
