GCN, March 10th, 2017

"Artificial intelligence has become as meaningless a description of technology as 'all natural' is when it refers to fresh eggs. At least, that's the conclusion reached by Devin Coldewey, a Tech Crunch contributor," reports Paul McCloskey in GCN.

"AI has become a popular buzzword, he said, precisely because it's so poorly defined. Marketers use it to create an impression of competence and to more easily promote 'intelligent' capabilities as trends change.

The popularity of the AI buzzword, however, 'has to do at least partly with the conflation of neural networks with artificial intelligence,' he said. 'Without getting too into the weeds, the two are not interchangeable -- but marketers treat them as if they are.'..."
