It all depends on the which market it is, but advertising means a lot to some companies.  They actually put 100% of themselves into their advertising, so if it doesn't work then they fail.  They lose everything that they put into it and that is how a lot of companies just end.  I think right now there are loads of companies over using Al to appear sharp-wittedness.

Marketing makes the difference in some markets. Next, it will be the Cloud Internet of Every AI Thing

Re: AI SchmAI
I suppose enterprises are overusing the term AI to appear savvy, even though they probably don't know what it means. And they will bandy the term about ad nauseam until no one pays attention anymore. It's the same thing that happened with the terms "Cloud" and "Internet of Everything."

Re: You Have to Go Through IBM
@Joe I've wondered what might happen if you were to feed all our worst fears into a true AI. Choosing a different option than we expect would be probable (perhaps).

Re: AT&T and AI
@srufolo: Ah, I miss Get Smart.

Of course, Hymie was only deployed in particularized, limited circumstances.  Agents 86 and 99 (and their colleagues) still had jobs and were still needed to assess situations as a human would.

A yet better example might be Data from Star Trek: TNG.

Re: You Have to Go Through IBM
@Michelle: Of course, true AI machines could be programmed by being "fed" all of our doomsaying literature and art that warns us against the dangers of AI and told that those scenarios are bad.

But then, if it *really* is AI, the machines will then make their own determination -- regardless of what we advise them.

Call me a pedant, but isn't this not really AI -- but, rather, *very* sophisticated predictive and prescriptive analytics?  AI is thinking and forming thought processes like a living being.  If enterprises keep bandying about the term "AI" all willy-nilly, it will go the way of other viable technologies that have been relegated to the buzzword stack by real-world executives sick and tired of hearing about them.

Re: AT&T and AI
@elizabethv  While what AT&T is using AI for what may just be something everyone else is doing just to improve its business, I think AI in the broader sense will have a significant impact on our lives, as jobs begin to be taken over by robots. I always think of the robot Hymie on that show "Get Smart," who had a supercomputer for a brain. He appeared to be human but was just a mass of wiring underneath. One day we will not be able to discern who is a robot and who is human.
