I've been around computers since around 1970. It was always said that AI was "just 10 years away" - but, of course, the 10-year milestone kept moving out.

I never believed in AI. My belief was that if I could figure out more-or-less how they were doing it, it wasn't AI. For example, facial recognition is not hard to figure out. And "Pick up the blue ball" may take some clever programming, but noting very intelligent about it.

Until ChatGPT. That changed my view, dramatically. And yes, I do think it is AI. Note, for example, that not even those who are developing it really understand how it is being done.
