Here are a few of Andrew Ng’s thoughts on AI and hype:

“There are a lot of tools that AI people like me have. But it turns out that 99% of their recent wave of economic value driven by AI is through one idea. The technical term is “supervised learning.” All that means is an AI that is very good at figuring out input to output or A to B mappings such as input an email and output is spam 01. That’s your spam filter.

The recent rise of voice conversational agents, that’s based on speech recognition, which is a type of AI that inputs an audio clip and outputs the text transcript. The most lucrative application of this is probably online advertising where all the large ad platforms have AI that input an ad and outputs where you click on those ads. This is driving tremendous amounts of revenue. I think a lot of the challenges that face us across multiple industries today is how to adapt this amazing technology that’s just computing input to output mappings into valuable business use cases, not just into software, into an industry where a lot of this has started, but in every industry.”
