"We don't have AI. Stop using the word."

I sympathise, and have posted similarly in the past, but those two sentences don't actually conflict.

Yes, we don't have AI, but that doesn't necessarily mean people should stop using the word. "AI" and "algorithms" and "machine learning" have (in certain contexts) become pretty accurate markers for "You can stop reading now, unless you are really bored and enjoy a good laugh."
