This panel, which met in Austin, Texas, discussed the "deep unease among AI researchers who have been around more than the last four years or so ... that perhaps expectations about AI are too high, and that this will eventually result in disaster." 
Why AI is harder than we think
TLDR
This talk will discuss some fallacies in common assumptions made by AI researchers, which can lead to overconfident predictions about the field, and speculate on what is needed for the grand challenge of making AI systems more robust, general, and adaptable --- in short, more intelligent.
Hubert Dreyfus, the artificial and the perspective of a doubled philosophy
The contribution by Hubert L. Dreyfus to the debate on the feasibility of AI projects has been surely of great relevance because of his pointing out specific limits of the machine as compared to the

Black Boxes and Theory Deserts: Deep Networks and Epistemic Opacity in the Cognitive Sciences
TLDR
This paper provides a diagnostic for such epistemic opacity based on dominant cognitive science’s lack of theoretical resources to account for the activity of artificial neural networks when taken as models of the brain and offers the guidelines of a solution founded on the notion of information developed in ecological psychology.

TLDR
Employees have an underestimated potential for a successful application of AI/ML, so it is worthwhile to involve them in all stages ofAI/ML implementation, and these competencies are identified and shows empirically to what extent they are available or need to be developed.
