AI reporting is mostly fake news

Interesting piece on artificial intelligence (AI) in The Register. It claims that -

Almost everything you read about AI is fake news. The AI coverage comes from a media willing itself into the mind of a three year old child, in order to be impressed.

For example, how many human jobs did AI replace in 2016? If you gave professional pundits a multiple choice question listing these three answers: 3 million, 300,000 and none, I suspect very few would choose the correct answer, which is of course “none”.

Similarly, if you asked tech experts which recent theoretical or technical breakthrough could account for the rise in coverage of AI, even fewer would be able to answer correctly that “there hasn’t been one”…

…Out in the real world, people want better service, not worse service; more human and less robotic exchanges with services, not more robotic “post-human” exchanges. But nobody inside the AI cult seems to worry about this. They think we’re as amazed as they are. We’re not.
