Part 2: The emotional hurdle AI systems lack anything even remotely like our emotional systems. How are they going to successfully co-exist and interact with the humans around them?
Most of the exuberant claims of rapid growth are junk research or worse. A few firms are investing very heavily (Think of Google and Baidu for example.) Most others have bigger fish to fry (like the threat of being Amazonization.)
This is no longer science fiction. Retailers, such as Amazon (www.amazon.com) and Wal-Mart (www.walmart.com) strive to use technology to enhance and streamline their shoppers experience…

Why is AI Weaponization inevitable and very troubling? Why and how will it develop? What actions, if any, should you consider taking?
Is AI ready to compete with humans? The world is complex and unpredictable but our natural intelligence is surprisingly good at coping with reality’s twists and turns. Can AI do the same?
In reviewing key end-of-year reports, articles and research summaries, a few stand out. Most notably, let’s look at Machine Learning as a Service: Part 1 (Sentiment analysis: 10 applications and 4 services) from Towards Data Science.
When I first got involved with Artificial Intelligence I was a young and somewhat naive Machine Translation researcher in the early 1980’s. At that time, AI was already going through its second round of big expectations.
In January, Microsoft and Alibaba issued press releases that were echoed by the press exclaiming AI beats humans in Stanford reading comprehension test The writers and editors at Wired were more naturally curious than those at a number of other publications. They dug into the details. They wrote: The benchmark is biased in favor…
Recently, some AI algorithms have been discovered to be “unpredictable” or “wild” and we are beginning to see that AI developers do not have as good a grasp on the situation as they thought they did.
