Stanford on the State of AI
Three Pipe Problem stashed this in Humanity vs Computers
From the Executive Summary: "Contrary to the more fantastic predictions for AI in the popular press, the Study Panel found no cause for concern that AI is an imminent threat to humankind. No machines with self-sustaining long-term goals and intent have been developed, nor are they likely to be developed in the near future. Instead, increasingly useful applications of AI, with potentially profound positive impacts on our society and economy are likely to emerge between now and 2030, the period this report considers."
"Potentially profound"... "likely to emerge" in the future (!). The future is now people. AI rhetoric literally has not changed in 60 years.
