We'd have a lot fewer hand-wringing thinkpieces about AI if we called it "efficiently searching a possibility space for the weights that minimize an error function over a training set" (which is what it is) instead of "artificial intelligence" or "machine learning".

The danger of AI isn't that it will take over the world, it's that people will put way too much faith in its dumb predictions.
