Ben Bernanke on AI

A.I. is qualitatively different from an internal combustion engine

You have to recognize realistically that A.I. is qualitatively different from an internal combustion engine in that it was always the case that human imagination, creativity, social interaction, those things were unique to humans and couldn’t be replicated by machines. We are coming closer to the point where not only cashiers but surgeons might be at least partially replaced by A.I.
