Artificial Intelligence (AI), the discipline many of us call our intellectual home, is suddenly having a rather huge cultural moment. It is hard to turn anywhere without running into mentions of AI technology and hype about its expected positive and negative societal impacts. AI has been compared to fire and electricity, and commercial interest in the AI technologies has sky rocketed. Universities—even high schools—are rushing to start new degree programs or colleges dedicated to AI. Civil society organizations are scrambling to understand the impact of AI technology on humanity, and governments are competing to encourage or regulate AI research and deployment.
