In the 1980s, we had no idea what artificial intelligence (A.I.) would be like – but we loved making movies about it. There was Arnold saying, “I’ll be back” in The Terminator…then becoming a young boy’s friendly sidekick in Terminator 2. But in neither movie did Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character act much like a human. And in real life, for companies like OpenAI, the goal is to create A.I. that mimics human reasoning.
However, projects like OpenAI don’t get much attention in the media. In a recent poll from Blumberg Capital, 58% of respondents said they were getting their info on A.I. from movies, TV and social media.
