Re: More hype before an AI Winter 2.0?
Much needs to be accomplished in terms of the information architecture--an investment by humans. The idea that machines acquire capabilities on their own is a fantasy.

Re: More hype before an AI Winter 2.0?
@Kishore Jethanandani You do have a good point about customer service. I woud imagine AI could help in this area someday. But we just aren't that far along in the technological curve for that yet. Someday!

Re: More hype before an AI Winter 2.0?
@dcawrey: While applications are available, good ones are hard to find. Customer service is much worse these days thanks to these chatbots. I scream at them in the hope they will be taken down. Now, we have lost the friendly customer service agent who got the work done in as much time as it takes to get a question across to a chatbot!!

Re: More hype before an AI Winter 2.0?
AI is certainly going to lead to jumps in productivity. That said, I wonder how long it is going to take to get there. We're talking a lot about AI these days, yet I still have not found a true applicable use for the technology quite yet.

<I'd be happy if there was some kind of automated reminder that just told people not to hit "reply all" when they meant to reply to just one person on a cc list!>

@mhhf1ve that would be useful. It also should be applied to texts. One person recently included me in a kind of group message, and every single reply to her generated a text to me. People didn't even realize that they were texting me, too. I just had a bunch of blank ones from people who didn't even know who I was. Very annoying!

@mhhf1ve very interesting. Thanks for the link. Unfortunately those glasses didn't take off as a consumer product, though they have been adpated in teh enterprise Editions for business uses. I suppose tech has to follow the money.

> "recognize sarcasm and so respond appropriately..."

I also vaguely remember there was a chatbot that helped people to be more polite or less trollish in texting conversations -- so the software would gently remind you that what you just typed could be interpreted as a hostile statement before you hit "send".. and there were plenty of email add-ons that tried to do similar things to prevent people from emailing back a reply that was offensive in the "heat of the moment"....

I'd be happy if there was some kind of automated reminder that just told people not to hit "reply all" when they meant to reply to just one person on a cc list!

Actually, you're not the only one with that thought.. I remember there was a Google Glass project that aimed to help autistic people recognize other people's emotional expressions.

Re: More AI
@mmhf1ve that's an interesting question. Though the researchers didn't seem to draw the connection, I was wondering if it can be applied in some way to helping people on the autistic spectrum recognize sarcasm and so respond appropriately -- even if it's not something they understand on their own.
