Do people already use AI. Do you sometimes know something that you just can not or should not know? Where does that ‘esoteric’ knowledge come from?
The field was founded on the claim that a central property of humans, intelligence—the sapience of Homo sapiens—”can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it.”
This raises philosophical issues about the nature of the mind and the ethics of creating artificial beings endowed with human-like intelligence, issues which have been addressed by myth, fiction and philosophy since antiquity.

GOFAI: Good Old Fashioned Artificial Intelligence
While Silicon Valley looks to fashionable techniques like neural networks and machine learning that have rapidly advanced the state of the art, Etzioni remains a practitioner of a modern version of what used to be known as GOFAI, for good old-fashioned artificial intelligence.
The reference goes back to the earliest days of the field in the 1950s and ’60s, when artificial intelligence researchers were confident they could model human intelligence using symbolic systems — logic embedded in software programs, running on powerful computers.
… But the debate over how to reach genuine artificial intelligence has not ended, and Etzioni and Allen are betting that their path is more pragmatic.
