AI quotable quotes

“If I get a first name and a cellphone number, you’d be shocked how much information Palantir can provide”—Charles Rettig, IRS Commissioner

“The first wave of AI failed circa 1985 because it was naive and ambitious, and it didn't realize just how complex language and communication was. The second wave of AI, right now, is soon going to fail because too much trickery and even self-trickery is used”—Simone Teufel, University of Cambridge

“What’s happening right now is not ‘AI.’ That was an intellectual aspiration and that's still alive today as an aspiration… the dreams and aspirations are five hundred years from now—that's like the Greeks sitting there and saying it would be neat to get to the moon someday. We have no clue how the brain does computation”—Michael I. Jordan, University of California, Berkeley
