Yann LeCun, chief scientist at Meta's artificial intelligence (AI) lab and one of the world's most influential AI researchers, has a bold new vision for the next generation of AI. In a draft document shared with MIT Technology Review, LeCun sketches out an approach that he thinks will one day give machines the common sense they need to navigate the world.

"Getting machines to behave like humans and animals has been the quest of my life," he says. LeCun thinks that animal brains run a kind of simulation of the world, which he calls a world model.
