      I think AI will appear in an increasingly broad range of applications and software, but all in special-purpose ways. I don’t expect to see true general-purpose AI systems for a very long time.

      I think we will continue to see AI as offering support to human jobs (e.g. in medicine), allowing humans to focus on the things that humans are good at. Rather than filing and organizing information, doctors will be able to spend more time interacting with patients.
