A smart, sober, carefully worded and well crafted criticism of the hypetastic world of ‘AI’ and ‘machine learning’ with actual real world examples and logically coherent arguments. Good luck with that, lol!
Seriously, I wish there were more of these. I have been banging on this issue forever and a day now, and it only keeps getting worse. Maybe someday eventually (hah! my favorite AI word)more people will wake up to the reality that much of what they believe about the way the world works, the way it actually exists today, is based on a series of confusions and obfuscations….. Hah! I am on a roll today….
Thx for the piece and nice work. Although you might consider changing the title. “hold your horses” is overused and not exactly appropriate to the topic.
