AI -- Not All It's Cracked Up to Be
Great byline on the "consciousness fallacy" of AI in the Washington Post recently. Author: IBM AI expert David Sullivan. Punctures what he calls the "consciousness fallacy" of cognitive computing aka AI2, and takes the position that while AI has come far it will never be "human like." Ergo I suspect he'd disagree with your characterization. As Sullivan notes, the Google Car may pick the best route, but it won't argue if you decide to go another way. I'd post the url to the article for you, but your cruel bots won't allow it. Am left to console you with "Relax, the machines will not awaken and take over."
