We need a "scary" upvote icon button thingy for the forum.

Apparently, algorithms = AI. It's exasperating.

anything to lower the cost of oil production per barrel.

"Shell says it can now drill oil wells in 60% of the time for 40% of the cost."

Much of AI is just pattern recognition algorithms and very large data sets. Artificial neural networks are still pretty weak at "creative" or human like thought.

AI lemmings.  Just wonderful.  The potential future has changed so much since I read Isaac  Asimov sci fi novels and hard science articles 40 years ago.

35 years ago, Isaac Asimov was asked by the Star to predict the world of 2019. Here is what he wrote

That's why this now typical use of "AI" to mean the algorithms you mention annoys me immensely. And I'm not even a tech person!

Opened link, freaked out, then saw publication date and exhaled. If they couldn't take over the world in four years, they're rubbish and that's that.

In an attempt to see the positive in every situation, should I live to see that, I've always wanted to see how living in a movie world feels like, even if the movie is Black Mirror. :D
