Whilst progress in AI is rapid, the majority of society are overestimating the speed at which drastic changes will happen, imagining a world run by robots where everyone is unemployed."Contrary to what people think, scientific progress is slow and continuous, but social and economic impact can be disruptive - there’s no doubt that we will reach human-level AI but we don’t know how long it’s going to take. We need to make sure that AI and society will bloom for the benefit of all." - Yoshua Bengio, Deep Learning Summit, Montreal, 2017. Breakthroughs, whilst impactful, are subtle and transformative to specific elements of industries, rather than industries as a whole.
