Ten Ways in Which AI Has Failed
IN THIS CHAPTER
Comprehending the world
Developing new ideas
Understanding the human condition
Any comprehensive book on AI must consider the ways in which AI has failed to meet expectations. The book discusses this issue in part in other chapters, giving the historical view of the AI winters. However, even with those discussions, you might not grasp that AI hasn’t just failed to meet expectations set by overly enthusiastic proponents; it has failed to meet specific needs and basic requirements. This chapter is about the failures that will keep AI from excelling and performing the tasks we need it to do to fully achieve the successes described in other chapters. AI is currently an evolving technology that is partially successful at best.
