If we go back to late 90s Internet, when a lot of people still had dial up modems, anyone in the industry who knew a little about what was under the hood realized just how much more we could do if we had broadband. But we also knew there was still a lot of work ahead to move the Internet from being a science project becoming part of daily life.
I don’t think AI is going to take 20+ years to reach the same state of affairs. I think we will reach the equivalent of AI’s broadband age much sooner. But many of the same forces, the same talents, and the same foibles are at work with Artificial Intelligence today as with the Internet technology stack 20 years ago.
So buckle up.
