Refresher on AI – history and future
The Economist has a nice special report on AI – both a little history and its implications here. A couple of titbits caught my eye:
- “Instead of people writing software, we have data writing software”
- It was not till 2012 that deep learning came to fore
- Only 0.5% of American workers are employed in industries that emerged since 2000
- A Japanese firm is selling weird looking goggles to help thwart facial recognition systems
Well worth the read.
