Summary

While it isn’t always as extreme as it was in the case of Facebook’s chat bots, you never have to look very far to find outlandish claims when it comes to AI reporting.Schwartz’ article ultimately ends on a somber note, with emerging technologies expert Joanne McNeil essentially postulating that journalists would write better articles if they made more money. I called out the “gaydar AI” research published by a Stanford researcher in 2018 because it claims to do something no human can do (predict another human’s sexual orientation based on their looks).While it’s true that there’s a resource gap between AI journalists and the researchers and developers we cover, there’s also, typically, an education gap too. Many of us aren’t trained developers or researchers, we’re technology journalists who cover AI. And the journalists who give it to them now are the ones who’ll still be covering AI when the rest catch up.Visit the Neural homepage for the latest artificial intelligence news, analysis, and opinion.You’re here because you want to learn more about artificial intelligence.
