Don't worry, the combination on the nukes is all zeros. Everyone knows that.
I also bet that you could break Mike Tyson's nose with a sucker punch.
Then you're not actually reading the timeline. AI is not a Scotsman. I am looking at the well known sub-field of computer science known as Artificial Intelligence. I am not the first to observe that anything from that field, once working well is no longer commonly considered to be AI.
1965 Edward Feigenbaum initiated Dendral, a ten-year effort to develop software to deduce the molecular structure of organic compounds using scientific instrument data. It was the first expert system.
Go ahead, look those guys up. Expert systems were very much considered AI when they were invented in 1965. By the '80s they actually worked and were no longer considered AI. Playing checkers USED to be thought of as AI. Not any more, probably because it works well and can be found in a child's toy.
We will never know if a computer has achieved what you call 'true AI' we can only observe it's behavior and guess. Certainly I have met people that lead me to wonder in the other direction. Philosophers have questioned our ability to know if sentience exists at all for that matter.
If you give it some thought, you'll realize that you don't actually have a good testable definition of what you consider 'real AI' at all. If I'm wrong, write that paper now, your Nobel awaits!
I suspect though, that you simply lack perspective. There was a time when grown adults commonly believed computers were thinking simply because someone (not them, of course, it took a high level wizard) could type something to the computer and it would type back an appropriate response. The field of AI had somewhat higher standards.
Right, because they were working by then. Look back further, the world existed long before the '80s.
Have a look at this timeline. YES! All of those things were once considered to be the domain of AI. Consider how each of those things that are commonplace today are no longer thought of as AI.
Are they still likely to be driven to eat 70 years after their death? Are they vampires?
I'm not so sure even the big money projects would be harmed. Even the mega budget buster films either make a profit within 10 years or they never do (I mean an actual profit, not the Hollywood accounting where no movie has ever managed to break even).
I skipped college personally. However, it has apparently gotten harder and harder to work one's way through college these days. Tuition has gone up a lot faster than wages.
Expert systems were considered to be very much the domain of AI until they started working.
Dogs have a non-zero intelligence and all they can say is woof.
It's all part of a long con to convince the middle class that their interests align with the rich so they'll vote against their own best interest.
It is a Robin Hood style situation. The corrupt sheriff was stealing from the poor to enrich himself and his cronies.
The rich have been waging class warfare for quite a while now. It is anything but unprovoked if the poor (and former middle class) fight back.
For example, we might try hand waving until we can fly with the pigs...
But conveniently leaving the people in his category of rich alone. Again, if you cannot just quit working tomorrow and never worry about how much money you have left, you are working class.
Actually, according to most of the world, STEM is working class. You don't get to rich until you can just stop working tomorrow and never worry about needs for the rest of your life. (Indeed, in many cases passive income will keep coming in so your grandchildren will be rich too).
Many CEOs could do just that nad live a middle class lifestyle AND leave their kids enough that they don't have to work either.
You are the victim of propaganda meant to convince you that your fortunes lie closer to Bill Gates than a Starbuck's barista so you won't vote against the interests of the rich. It seems to have worked very well so far.
