Today, we know how to train a computer to “learn.” It takes a multi-layered neural network called Deep Learning. 

Yes, Deep Learning is a form of AI, but from a functional point of view today (2017), AI should be understood as Augmented (human) Intelligence.

In 1983, in the movie WarGames (starring Matthew Broderick), a computer supposedly learned futility by playing tic-tac-toe, and stopped playing Global Thermonuclear War. 

It’s only a movie, but the ending is spectacular. 

Watching these last few minutes (with head phones) will help you understand our motivation for avoiding litigation.
