I'm launching a brand new live series called "TechTime with Tanmay". In Episode 1 on Friday, Jan 24 at 10 AM EST, you will hear from the experts Robert High (IBM Fellow & CTO - IBM Edge Computing) and Sam Lightstone (IBM Fellow & CTO for Data - IBM Data & AI) as we debunk popular misconceptions surrounding #AI. During the show, you can ask us questions and derive insights from their years of experience in their fields of #technology, #live from the IBM Toronto Software Lab on YouTube: http://bit.ly/TechTimeT1 Will AI take over #humanity? Is AI going to replace all our #jobs?
People have myths because that is one kind of response to the unknown. If you take away their myths, you may leave them with nothing. That's why a very well-intentioned, thoughtful effort of scholars over at the Mozilla dot org foundation to debunk nonsense about artificial intelligence is bound to fail.

What the very astute authors have failed to confront is that people have no idea what AI is.

It turned out not to be that easy. Reviewing just a dozen or so of these articles yielded 68 myths to be debunked! Yes there was some duplication (6 votes for'It's a Fad', 5 votes for'It's the Solution to All Our Problems', and so forth).
