*Internet "father" Vinton Cerf speaks on AI, Sept. 11Vinton G. Cerf, vice
president and "chief internet evangelist" for Google and one of the
recognized "fathers of the internet," will speak at 2:30 p.m., Wednesday,
Sept. 11, in Bldg. 4500-North, Wigner Auditorium. The title of his talk is
"Risk factors in the Overhyping of AI and Machine Learning."Per Cerf's
abstract: "Artificial Intelligence, especially Machine Learning have become
part of an overhyped mantra (that goes for blockchain, too). It is vital
that the expectations for these technologies be tempered by deeper
appreciation for their strengths and weaknesses. ML is narrow and brittle,
producing dramatic results but also failing dramatically (see Generative
Adversarial Networks). Finally, ML is NOT Artificial General
Intelligence."Cerf is the former senior vice president of Technology
Strategy for MCI and the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the
architecture of the internet. He is the recipient of the National Medal of
Technology and Presidential Medal of Freedom (both with colleague Robert E.
Kahn) and the ACM Alan M. Turing award.*

I've been saying the same thing, but I'm not Turing Award winner.
