The world is ‘’astonishingly pessimistic’ about Artificial Intelligence, says EU research commissioner

“If you do any research on artificial intelligence these days, the results are astonishingly pessimistic. Nine articles out of ten on AI are negative. Not just negative. Alarmist and panicked, sometimes even hysterical. For me, a techno-optimist, it’s shocking. And very disappointing”, said EU research commissioner Carlos Moedas.
“The fear of artificial intelligence among the public still runs deep. [But] fearing what is arguably one of the most exciting new technologies of our generation and denying ourselves its amazing benefits is not the answer”.
