AI Growing Up: The Changes and Opportunities

  • James F. Allen

Abstract

Many people make many confusing claims about the aims and potential for success of work in AI. Much of this arises from a misunderstanding of the nature of work in the field. In this article, I examine the field and make some observations that I think would help alleviate some of the problems. I also argue that the field is at a major turning point, and that this will substantially change the work done and the way it is evaluated.
