Opinion / Analysis
Artifice and intelligence
The Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown Law’s Emily Tucker explains why they will stop using the terms “artificial intelligence”, “AI”, and “machine learning” in their work. She is certainly correct that words matter, and that the widespread lack of understanding and misuse of the terms is problematic. At the same time, not all institutional misuse is top-down and intentionally driven by greed and control – language laziness is pervasive and a bigger problem. Tucker’s proposed guidelines for replacement language are reasonable, though I don’t think “machine training” helps as replacement for “machine learning”.
