"AI" ... A Word of Wisdom.....

....being a degreed atmospheric scientist who has functioned in engineering mode from time to time for more than 50 years, I have seen a lot of scientific fads come and go. Right now, we are in a doozy: AI.

Headline from an ad received Friday afternoon

Even on the radio it is, "AI, this; AI, that." Most of it meaningless. 

From the Glossary of Meteorology, the definition of AI:
Multidisciplinary field encompassing computer science, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, robotics, and linguistics, and devoted to the reproduction of the methods or results of human reasoning and brain activity.

There are no commonly accepted definitions as to what comprises AI applications in the real world. So, if some advertisement says it is "AI," that may or may not be the case. 

And, if you take away nothing else from this brief comment, remember this:

If there is such a thing as artificial intelligence, there must be such a thing as artificial stupidity!
