"Narratives of intelligent machines matter because they form the backdrop against which AI systems are being developed, and against which these developments are interpreted and assessed. Those who are engaged with AI either as researchers or regulators are therefore rightfully concerned, for instance, about the fact that the dominant contemporary imaginings of AI, primarily those of Hollywood cinema and popular news coverage, are often out of kilter with the present state of the technology." — AI narratives: a history of imaginative thinking about intelligent machines, 2020, p. 7
