I have to admit that I'm not very familiar with the specifics of AI and ML, I have a 100k feet understanding of it and I'm considering whether or not I should devote time to learn some of these tools.
The way I see it its a combination of Applied Statistics, Probability and Computer Science which created their own band/camp.
Probably a very small minded view hence why I'd like to ask some assorted questions:
1. Your personal opinion of AI/ML is it all hype?
2. Do you see valid/sound usages in Finance, Economics?
3. Any references further reading you found worthwhile?
4. finally, on a tangent, if you had a time constraint and had to choose between learning AI/ML vs Complexity/Chaos which one would you pick?
