Could we say, then, that the main problem with #AI, then isn't in the technology itself, but in the way that human beings (try to) use it? It's a tool, like a hammer. If you know what it's good for and how to use it properly, you can do countless great things. Of course, you could also kill someone with a hammer if you're not careful—or, of course, if you're malicious.
Watched @janellecshane's TED talk on the weird ways that #AI can fail. Really good, entertaining talk that addresses pretty much what I've always felt about AI, but hadn't really put into words quite as well: AI can solve plenty of problems, but the real challenge is getting it to solve the problems we *want* it to solve.
So is parrot-computer interaction a legitimate field of study? Like, is anyone working with a lab full of parrots talking to bots to see what kind of trouble they can cause and what items they can order off the internet? If so then here's my CV, please hook me up with the most hilarious job in the world #ai #hci
