Peak A.I. (hype), followed by the inevitable crash...
Late-2017 into early-2018, the foolish hype about A.I. seemed to peak.
In recent months, we're growing accustomed to reading about endlessly Self-Crashing Cars, Racist Facial Recognition used to semi-automate the bothering of minorities, A.I. Stock Traders have failed to become Trillionaires, and now even poor old Watson has been revealed to lack common sense.
Somebody should run an FFT on the hype cycle to figure out the precise period. It's *about* 12 years.
