The world leaders in AI!

Yes, Amazon I did purchase a 55" TV last month*, no, why would I ever want to buy another the next time I log in? If they're world leaders how can we expect self driving cars to ever be a thing? As AC mentioned in the post above, it's ML not AI, and not even very good ML.

If it was AI in the article, it would have responded to the developers and told them how stupid they were being.

*I didn't really, but anyone that's ever shopped there more than once know how idiotic the suggestions are.
