2001 vs. 2001

from the what-a-battle dept

An interesting article in the Economist comparing the state of computing today with what happening in the movie 2001. It would be easy to just say “things are different”, but this article goes into a detailed look at the history of computers, and how AI has evolved through different phases over many decades. Definitely worth reading.
