The Next Hot Job: Pretending to Be a Robot
An umbrella term for any computer system that makes decisions. When brought up in conversation, it is good to ask what the person actually means so you don't end up spending half an hour talking about something that nobody can define.
Possible things AI could mean:
- The automation of a task or system that isn't doing anything clever under the hood
- A hard-coded "smart" system that is just a decision tree
- A simple statistical model whose outcome is easy to interpret
- A not simple neural network that is very powerful but basically impossible to interpret
