Can we Please remember that the best AI in the world is still several orders of magnitude thicker than two short planks?

As something of long-term AI dev/creator, I really am so sick of overblown cr@p like this.

Yes, feeding varied images will work, because THE WHOLE POINT is that you feed varied images.

Too many people still seem to believe that AIs see images as if they were images.

They don't.  They see ones and zeroes; pixels, at best.  No AI in the entire world understands that it's looking at a picture, because it doesn't know what a picture is (except by file extension, sometimes), or that a picture represents a snapshot of a moment in "the real world" (which it also has absolutely no knowledge of).

It would make me sooooo happy if I were to read an article about AI that was written by someone who has a bluddy clue what he's talking about.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
