Here is a good example of current state of AI .. okay for flirting few minutes but not yet good enough for prolonged conversations.

You seem to have very narrow view of what ai is all about....perhaps this will broaden your understanding:

I wrote that is an example of current state of AI (Mitsuku chatbot in the post after the one you quoted). Mitsuku cannot chat 4 lines in English (20 words or so) without slipping up and revealing "she" is a bot (as I showed)

I did not write that is all AI can do. We shall see in coming years what it can (and cannot do).

I am reminded of the hype surrounding hydrogen car and artificial heart back in 1980. The world's best scientists told us at that time that by year 2000 the internal combustion engine will be only found in the museum and that no one will ever suffer from a heart ailment anymore since we shall be able to get heart transplants as easily as cataract surgery.

That was the point I was trying to make.

Yes. You wrote that the chatbot was an indication of the state of AI....which it is not...it is an indication of the state of AI implementations for chatbots......which is a very very very narrow specialty in AI and certainly not representative of AI in general.

I really doubt that "the world's best scientists" made those predictions but I could be wrong. Googling "predictions about the future from 1980" found https://www.google.co.th/url?sa=t&rct=j ... CjaC0Bufcu. I didn't read every word of the article but I didn't find any of the world's best scientists being referenced there.....perhaps you could find something and bring it here. Perhaps in 1980 your concept of who was a "world's best scientist" was a bit distorted.....or maybe your memory is bad?.....or maybe you are right on the money and my memory is bad.....

If anyone else doubted me, I would try to prove my point but not to someone who believes authors are authoritarians and librarians are libertarians. After that statement, I doubt I can convince you of anything.

I think there is a typo in the headings for the graph. Souldn't the opposite of authoritarian be librarian?

I mean you've got authors and you've got librarians. Authors write INDIVIDUAL books while librarians make COLLECTIONS of books.....what could be more opposite than that?

I hope this is not construed as a viscious attack on someone.
