They play for fun when it doesn't matter, get serious when it's more competitive, and if they are smarter they can be a bit nasty!

AI is just a set of rules, complex ones for sure, but human-supplied rules nevertheless.

And the humans supplying the rules are all benevolent humanitarians?

That's the worry. Some scientists are saying governments should act to prevent them acting in anti-social ways, but the military have other ideas.

What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of "cats.") Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave ... sooner than you probably think.

AI (that's Artificial Intelligence and not artificial insemination!) is the future in computer technology.
There is so much progress happening that one will need to spend 24 hrs on the computer each day just to catch up.

As has been said a lot of it is in tactical and military applications but medicine and education are rapidly catching up.

I am scared of the day when any Tom, Dick or Harry can point a mouse at you and click the button to kill you.

Computers learn better from computers than from humans. They play "Go" against themseves, more challenging for them than against mere humans.
