I will start with a perspective on the status and recent progress in AI, and the heightened public expectations surrounding it, with the aim of separating hype from technical reality. I will discuss critical thresholds still to be crossed for human-level intelligence, including the need for human-aware AI systems. I will touch on potential applications of AI technology in materials science research.
