It seems to me that the media are really hyping the state of AI research and the general, ‘march of the machines’ thing and this is causing confusion and mild panic amongst us. I think for all of us, including those actually, ‘doing AI’ it would be really good if there was an agreed, ‘scale’ […]

Anyone who understands complexity science knows that the ability to […]

The problem with taking such an idea seriously is that most of this, ‘big talk’ is undermined by, ‘little science’. In this article I take a more balanced view based upon a logical analysis and our […]
