600% of what? How the fuck do you even quantify AI? It either works or its broken.

Dude, your post is as missing-the-point as the headline.
AI doesn't "work or doesn't." AI can be smart. It can be dumb. It can make decisions and react, or it can just do one thing. How "smart" it is takes processor time.

What he's saying, if you read the article and not the headline, is that without the cloud AI takes somewhere between 10% and 20% of a machine's processing time (aka power.) With the cloud he can put that 10-20% back into other areas, such as graphics, and use the cloud to get 600% of the machine's total power focused on AI. In other words, it's like having 1 machine dedicated to graphics/input/networking/etc., and 6 boxes dedicated to AI.

While I think that's a huge stretch - I highly doubt 100% of the former AI processing is freed, and highly doubt you're getting even 50% of an XBOne as cloud power for AI (which isn't even 600% of status quo), no one here seems to be arguing against what he actually said. People are arguing against an incredibly dumb headline.

% of processor time dedicated to AI is an absolutely measurable thing. Everyone saying this is PR speak is wrong. I'd say the numbers are a total fabrication, but the measurements are not.

edit - didn't was a bit harsher than I meant it. Wasn't InBlack's fault the headline is ridiculous, or that "600%" is ridiculous.
