By Jim Sinur  |  January 22, 2018 History teaches us that there were two large AI Winters in the past. One starting in the mid 1970s and another in the late 1980's There were very clear reasons for the last two AI Winters, but most of the technical and cost issues are gone. The wild card is how humans accept AI this time around. My bet is against another brutal winter. This does not mean there won't be cold snaps, but a 15-20 year freeze out doesn't seem likely now.The First AI Winter: It was caused by a…

By Ganesh Padmanabhan  |  October 8, 2017  |  Source: LinkedIn I finally watched the movie Ex Machina this weekend (disclosure: I’m not a movie buff, and am always decades behind on movies!). It was a pretty impressive plot, would have liked the screenplay to be a little better. But what stood out for me was the application of the Turing Test to break the frontier – not just testing for human actions, but for human consciousness. I’ll be suspicious of pretty cyborgs from now on. That said, I was trying…
