Artificial intelligence has come a long way from the character Data on Star Trek, and even farther from 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is now part of our daily habits, i.e. Apple’s Siri. This interesting topic came from DATAVERSITY in their article, “How and Why Standards for Artificial Intelligence Keep Evolving.”

Kristen V. Brown of SF Gate recently wrote, “John McCarthy, the scientist who coined the term ‘artificial intelligence,’ famously lamented that ‘as soon as it works, no one calls it AI anymore.’

His feelings fall into the category of “what did you do for me lately?” No longer new means old to users in this fast-paced society. Expectations have changed over time, in that the desire to have artificial intelligence machines look more human falls behind the desire to have them act more like humans. Be careful what you wish for.
