I think she’s only referring to Cortana.


A great article, I like the many specific examples she provides of already implemented and biased AI reinforcing human bias. Lol at her throwing shade against Google saying “we don’t have internal reviews for research”.


I’m all verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. Here’s a topic. Artificial intelligence is neither artificial nor intelligent. Discuss.


AI are just calculators that gives results in chances


So, the conversation thus far hasn’t been as scientific as I’d hoped it would be so I’ll ask the engineers who have ignored this thread to pipe up. Is AI a real threat? Can code teach code to be smarter than us? In my IT role, I’ve only seen AI as a brand for “smart search”. I’d love to see examples of where “AI” teaches itself to become smarter without human input.
