It looks like the beginning of a new technology hype for artificial intelligence (AI). The media has started flooding the news with product announcements, acquisitions, and investments. The story is how AI is capturing the attention of tech firm and investor giants such as Google, Microsoft, IBM. Add to that the release of the movie ‘Her’, about a man falling for his virtual assistant modeled after Apple’s Siri (think they got the idea from Big Bang Theory when Raj falls in love with Siri), and you know we have begun the journey of geek-dom going mainstream and cool. The buzz words are great too: cognitive computing, deep learning, AI2.

I think it is not what AI can do - and it can do a lot: machine learning can be and is put to work effectively in many fields, medicine being one of them with impressive results. It is more about these things we persuade ourselves it can do, but it really cannot! To a hammer, they say, everything looks like a nail...The common mistake made is that we too often assume that more data is better data and that we NEED to analyse as much as we can get our hands on. We neglect that most of it is random noise and meaningless data and become religiously attached to the fallacy of precision and a eulogy of AI2, predictive analytics, (as well as social networks and crypto-currencies - to name a few of the latest innovations) and so on. Applying human intelligence is a necessary ingredient of Artificial Intelligence.
