Rethinking the A.I. conversation: My conversations with artificial intelligence experts over the six weeks since PACIFIC launched have taught me something: Radical, irreversible change is coming to every facet of our lives, but it’s not coming nearly as fast as A.I.’s most ardent evangelists would have you believe. When a bright-eyed entrepreneur tells you we’re 2 years away from X, it’s a safe bet we’re at least 5 years away from X.
“Artificial intelligence is attracting growing amounts of corporate investment … So far, however, only about 20 percent of AI-aware companies are currently using one or more of its technologies in a core business process or at scale.”
“For all their promise, AI technologies have plenty of limitations that will need to be overcome … [including] onerous data requirements … [and] the difficulty of obtaining data sets that are sufficiently large and comprehensive …”
“In some areas … the cost and complexity of deploying A.I. may simply not be worthwhile, given the value that could be generated.”
“Societal concerns and regulations can also constrain AI use. Regulatory constraints are especially prevalent in use cases related to personally identifiable information.”
I don’t begrudge visionaries their visions. I just begrudge them their timelines.

下面就这篇文章为大家拓展一个作文模板，以PTE大作文题库里面的“Some people think law changes our behavior. Discuss.”这道题为例。
It has been argued that some people think our behaviour is changed by law, in my opinion, law has not only restrain our behaviour but also alters people’s way of living. Legislation about upcoming technologies, science breakthrough and medical issues is also changing our behaviour to a large extent.
First of all, societal concerns and regulations regarding to science and technology has largely constrained the speed of development of human beings, that is to say, in some areas, we are restricted by law in every facet of life. For example, America has recently banned ZTE, a Chinese telecommunication company from importing electrical parts since it has breached the law of fair trade and regulations. As a result, people working for ZTE might face unemployment at scale.
On the other hand, law has plenty of limitations which might alter people’s choices towards life. Although almost every law is enacted to protect human rights, there is always dark side behind it. For instance, since many countries have banned tobacco, people may seek other ways to find alternatives such as electronic cigarettes.
To conclude, law indeed has changed people’s behaviour in many ways, given that it is not only a mandatory tool to regulate human society, but also a direct way to make right things happen. However, the influence of law can range from specific behaviours in a narrow context that are easily measured such as the decline in smoking to the more complex and far-reaching.
