Don’t believe the hype: the media are unwittingly selling us an AI fantasy

A media critique of media AI hype. Misses that underlying capabilities are mostly only imagined. Instead concentrates on whether it is unvarnished good. Harshly disses "ethics theatre". I fear too many friends are unwitting actors in this theatre. https://t.co/4ClfIDFFmk

RT @rao2z: By waiting until 8th grade to introduce #AI to the students (https://t.co/7g4lcNIX2Y), India will inevitably fall way behind in the great #AI education race. IMHO, #InUteroAI (cf https://t.co/RZ5skg6bno) remains the only sensible option.. https://t.co/9ymJ6WD6xb

Syllabus for the artificial intelligence (AI) subject would be drafted for all the three classes. If required, the board will also help in the capacity building of schools for the teaching-learning of the new subject from the next academic session
