Will ArtificiaI Intelligence soon be surpassing humans? This is rapidly becoming one of the central questions of our time -- but it is the wrong question. In this course, we will provide a non-technical look at where AI has come from, and where it is going. We will see that there is no reason to expect that AI will be surpassing humans. Instead, what we are learning to create with AI is the illusion of intelligence.
AI has actually been discussed for centuries, in fields like philosophy, linguistics and cognitive science. We will show that these perspectives help to shed light on current developments in AI, including impressive recent systems like GPT-3.
