Contemplating possible future scenarios should be left to the field of philosophy, not to futurology – or so claims Luciano Floridi in this somewhat harsh but fair editor letter. Floridi examines so-called Artificial Intelligence (AI) winters and their impact on the development of AI. AI winters are periods where the hype for AI wanes and often the result of disillusionment when – inevitably – promises concerning AI applications fail to deliver. The drawbacks of hype for AI are twofold: on the one hand, it makes people more skeptical towards useful applications, and on the other hand alarmism blinds people to the actual risks associated with AI applications. Floridi mentions these instances of alarmism during his discussion of hype, seemingly categorizing alarmism as an instance of hype rather than a different variant of an exaggerated claim.
