The Silicon Graybeard did the homework that I've been too lazy to do. He has an outstanding post about why HAL won't be refusing to open the pod bay doors. It's even covered with awesome sauce (I love me some Gartner Hype Cycle charts).
Will AI continue to give impressive demonstrations? Sure. But here's the key quote:
One source claims Deep Blue cost IBM $100 million.
When are those algorithms doing [sic] to genuinely add $1 billion to IBM’s bottom line? Building still more specialized computers to beat humans at Jeopardy or Go is just creating more demos that solve no useful problems and do so in ways that humans don’t.Yup. Until AI produces results that return 100x the investment of building the AI, it's a nothingburger.
