Whatever happened to artificial intelligence?

  • So-called “narrow AI” is going to enjoy ever-increasing importance in our future. But it’s the only AI that actually exists, and the only AI that will exist in my lifetime. So the sooner all the funding gets redirected from utopian, cryptoreligious pursuits of “Singularity” and “Transhumanity” back to good, old-fashioned engineering, the sooner we can get on with the noble goal of making easier the lives of a networked humanity.
