Emergent weirdness in AI

Daniel Kahneman on ‘Emergent Weirdness’ in Artifical Intelligences
Nov 28 2011

Emergent weirdness is a good bet.
Only deduction is certain.
Whenever an inductive short-cut is applied, you can search for cases in which it will fail.
It is always useful to ask “What relevant factors are not considered?” and “What irrelevant factors affect the conclusions?”
By their very nature, heuristic shortcuts will produce biases, and that is true for both humans and artificial intelligence, but the heuristics of AI are not necessarily the human ones.
