Yeah well, the news is full of robots taking over the world and will the next great novel be written by artificial intelligence. Seems to me the future is written into the name.
Are we willing to settle for ‘artificial’ intelligence when what we actually want is the real thing? Intelligence requires a sentient being, which you and I have in common but is not available on ChatGPT.
AI is a warehouse of human knowledge and historic interaction, but it fails at the level of definition for intelligence. My automobile is a storehouse of all things mobile, but even Elon Musk has not yet made it sentient and, if he does, it will feel no remorse at running down a child.
Remorse is not on the menu in artificial intelligence, that’s what makes it just another tool. And talking of tools… Evoke is only just round the corner.
