Extensive report: Artificial intelligence will change all our lives by 2020!

Taking the most basic and canonical example, right? You show a machine learning system 100 million pictures of cats, but you’ve only shown this machine learning system cats that were colored white, right? That system would then recognize cats, but probably misrecognize darker-colored cats, right? You can show the machine learning system any large corpus of data.

Right? So industry is like, “Oh, okay, we see a problem.” That we’re actually, if you look up “Physicist” right now, you’ll still see some differences.

Even though there is a new facial recognition product that is being sold to different retail stores that offers to capture the image of shoplifters and then ban them across stores they’ve never been to, right? If I steal in Target and then I tried to walk into a Walmart, Walmart’s gonna be like, “Oh, stealer! Get out!” Right?

These sort of speculative and hype-filled proclamations that focus on tech wizardry, right? So the super intelligence or the next deep neural net which is better than humans – which is a claim that Kate has examined and we’re looking at – but it is actually affecting and shaping all of our lives in different ways, right? The harms are not evenly distributed, but this is in our lives, right?
