IDG Contributor Network: AI – hype or here today?

Gartner has a tool known as the “hype cycle.” It shows where a technology stands on a curve that represents the lifecycle of that technology — including the peak of its “hype,” or inflated expectations, followed by the low point of missed expectations, or the “trough of disillusionment.” The lifecycle finally ends as the technology achieves what they refer to as the “plateau of productivity.” 

AI is currently at the top of this hype cycle, discussed in every tech news cycle and mentioned with predictions of dire consequences from some of the greatest minds today.
