Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a topic that many of us read about. If you think about AI, it very well could (and should) concern you. Algorithms, machine learning, etc. are already out there churning away at massive amounts of data every second of every day. This article by Dr. Polli points out some interesting facts and reminds us that, at least for now, we are the ones designing and applying AI. We should do so in an ethical manner.
I predict that government, as we know it, will, by and large, disappear within 100 years. I am not saying that is a good thing, but the pull of AI will be great. I would venture to say that most voters today already trust Siri and Alexa more than we do most politicians regardless of political party. It would probably be cheaper too.
