MikeRobinson Posted January 19 Share Posted January 19 (edited) The key thing to realize about "AI" is that there is still "a human being(!)" who is very much involved in what comes out of it. "AI" is still based on a computer algorithm, known somewhat-euphemistically as a "neural net." It is basically "a network of weights," based on our growing understanding of "neurons." These algorithms are not being expressed in terms of "if-then-else," but they are nonetheless "computer algorithms." This algorithm is still very-much being programmed, now through an indirect process called "training." Where the intended goal is definite, a neural net can navigate through quite an interesting "mine-field of uncertainties" to (sometimes ...) get there. For instance, your phone has become good at recognizing your voice, and at weeding out your "spelin erurs" in both a word-wise and contextual manner. "So far, so good." "Run-of-the-mill 'pop songs'" might well have become "a definite goal." But, "songs in general," not so much. After all, if it were actually that easy, our human brains would have achieved this long before now and we'd all be rich (or, poor). Nope: we've not yet achieved what was in those old Peanuts cartoons: "Did you know that Beethoven comes in a spray can?"
