I started to use 'machine learning' (we do, oh we do) but they told me it wasn't sexy enough and to use 'artificial intelligence' instead.

This curve is too steep to climb.
Wow what a bunch of has-beens.

AI is so last decade.

Given the rate at which old ideas get recycled as "new", "shiny" and "magic" in our particular trade I expect it's either back at the cutting edge now or will be in about 20 femtoseconds and back out of fashion a dozen or so nanoseconds after that. 

The rag trade can't even come close to IT for fickleness.

Next you'll be telling me that it's wrong to make my development squad wear silver spandex one-piece suits?

That said, they required surprisingly little encouragement.

The term Artificial Intelligence has always amused me. It suggests that the boffins are saying that the machine intelligence is fake......

As a one-time boffin with a little experience in the subject, this seems entirely reasonable to me.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Your suit is gold, right?

When you're selling it, it's Artificial Intelligence. When you're seeking a budget for the computers, it's Machine Learning. When you're doing it, it's linear regression.

This is actually exact. The data science minion says linear regression model, I put it down as machine learning and trained algorithms, and sales and marketing pitch artificial intelligence.

We've moved from silver spandex to gold? Really, I get tired just looking at that curve. This boy don't sprint, he ambles.

I am currently enjoying being "transformed". Sadly this doesn't give me Optimus Prime like abilities, rather free time where work time used to be...

We have a business transformation initiative which, I admit, does feel a bit like being stuck in the middle of one those six-hour long Transformer movies. If, instead of filming it, they'd done the entire thing with PowerPoint and Excel.

Last decade?  "AI" as a term stopped being hip around 1980 when SAIL was merged into Stanford's main Babbage-Science department.
