There are some really good ideas that just don’t work, at the moment, in the near future, or even in the distant future.
For all those big dreamers out there. Having a real AI would be amazing, and is also a great idea. Imagine all the things you could have it do for you. Read all your papers and tell you which ones are important. Plan your vacation for you. Do all your mundane work.
Though, as cool as AI is, it’s completely infeasible at the moment, in the near future and quite probably will remain a gimmick for many years to come.
Though just because it’s impossible doesn’t mean the idea isn’t great.
The end of hunger and poverty, war and violence. All great ideas. Just because we can’t manage them now, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to achieve them.
