All this demonstrates is that the "very intelligent person" who built the AI didn't do enough work on delineation and image trimming.

This is going to get worse and worse, and culminate in completely useless -- even damaging and dangerous -- AIs going commercial.

And it's not the AIs themselves that are the problem; it's that the infrastructure that surrounds an AI is nowhere near mature enough -- because no-one wants to work on that, when "Creating the Next Great AI!" is the holy grail that gets all the attention.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
