Artificial intelligence, or at least the perception of artificial intelligence, has gone from disappointing to frightening in the blink of an eye. As Marc Andreessen said on Twitter this morning:
AI: From “It’s so horrible how little progress has been made” to “It’s so horrible how much progress has been made” in one step.
When I read this I thought of Pandora (the mythical figure, not the music service).
“Are you still working on opening that box? Any progress?”
“No, the lid just … won’t … budge … Oh wait, I think I got it.”
