Tbf tho do we really have any other sort of artificial intelligence

G(eneral)AI is the holy grail of AI, and is what most people meant before we started calling machine learning "AI." For the moment though, ML is pretty much the best AI we have. It's really just a tool to search for minimums, not actual intelligence though. It doesn't know what it's doing or optimizing for, it just searches.

AI is horribly miss-used vague term. ML is better because it specifies learning. Some people call a bubble-sort AI (or similar basic algorithms when applied to business decisions) but there is no learning or intelligence by my observations so it's just logic.

Logic alone isn't AI.

No. It’s just a lot of people wanting to market themselves or their businesses.

Think about a term like “near AI”. How would you know you’re close if we don’t have actual fully-fledged AI?

I got this one: you would have no way of knowing.

A machine that can perform natural language processing is an AI. You're probably thinking of AGI? But we would also know when we are in the presence of AGI so that still doesn't make sense.

It’s no more an artificial intelligence than the code that ran the opponent in Pong.

Does the game 'Pong' exhibit learning/problem solving?
