ridcully on AI.001In the twenty-one years since I last read Terry Pratchett’s “Hogfather”, Artificial Intelligence has re-emerged as the great hope and fear of technology-based visions of the future.

I give you the words of Archchancellor Ridcully of the Unseen University:

“Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time.”
