I may be going too far afield here but did anyone else notice the part where the author says about AI that it can’t recognize uncertainty, so it ignores it, which brought to mind the recent self driving crashes where an unexpected event causes a crash, so while a human driver says whoa, uncertainty, I’m slowing down while I try to figure out what this other driver is up to, the AI at this point says, I don’t know what it is so it doesn’t exist. Seems like some postings recently stating that algos only know what they’re told and that is a big hurdle for the aforementioned masters of the tech universe. bestazy
