Re: Depends what you want to call AI

No-one would regard what is essentially standard pattern recognition as AI. The techniques for drawing the borders between classes have become more complicated but its essentially the same template of data -> features -> classifier that was established 4 decades ago.

Researchers need to stop kidding themselves that they're involved in AI. Its pattern recognition. Some of it is very clever pattern recognition but equally a lot of it isn't and is re-hashing decades old work and mistakes.
