Re: Colbert
You are right, some businesses will try to invest in the hype and ignore the technology and innovation part of the equation. I feel, in the short run these businesses might manage to capture a bit of the market share, but in the long run only the businesses that have created a solid value proposition will be able to sell their product as AI -- consumers will be asking deeper question, such as, what's the IQ level of AI version 4.2, etc.

Probably won't stop anyone from marketing as AI; it's so much catchier than machine learning!

Re: Colbert
Good point, as with the current level of machine learning and user pattern recognition, it would be hard to classify these technologies as AI. If a system has been programmed to detect, for instance, a user login from a new web browser, resulting in the creation of an automated alert or a service shut down after a pre-set count, then machine learning should not be sold to the consumer as AI.

Interesting concept of distributed AI for security, Brian. This isn't quite it, but apparently at least one vendor says it uses AI for cybersecurity: http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2325001/android-app-claims-to-use-artificial-intelligence-to-fight-cyber-threats.

Re: Colbert
It's amazing how quickly a word like "Android" can transition from meaning, a robot that appears human, to an OS that has nothing to do with appearance, and next to a software that appears human, all this in the span of 4 years, or so.

If attackers are going to use AI to inflict damage, then I guess better AIs will be needed to defend against such attacks. In a way it is better to have multiple AIs in a decentralized network, performing different activities, than to have a single super AI with lots of resources.

Colbert
Stephen Colbert had some fun with the reported Turing test breakthrough this week. "The 'robolution' is upon us!" With "Bina the activist Android," it's already here, he joked.
