When AI Will Be Ready
Artificial Incompetence is touted to ready in 5 to 10 years but it seems the 5 to 10 years is always 5 to 10 years away. This reminds of navel gazing about fusion power generation being about 20 years away over 50 years ago and it is still '20 years away'. AI is the fusion power of the IT industry; always promised but never arrives.
One of the problems alluded to in the post is the quality of the dataset and the suitability of the dataset for 'training' the AI system. They are not identical problems. Datasets are often not as good as assumed so there is always a certain amount of garbage in that will polluted the system. Another problem, even if you have relatively high quality data, is often it was not originally collected for use with an AI system. So it is incomplete for the purposes of AI but may be more than adequate for other purposes.
