[D] So where are we at on the Hype Cycle right now? Before or after the trough of disillusionment?

You never hear about ML or “AI” in the mainstream any more, not since about 2017. AlphaGo and self-driving was exciting, then the self-driving started to struggle and people twigged that the self-play approach cannot be translated to applications where you don’t have a ‘game’ i.e. a perfect model of the environment’s response to actions. The only things that make the media now are garbage from OpenAI like “We PuBliSheD a BoOk written by our garbled-text generator”. So I just wonder what people think about whether we are on the way down to a crash, or just past it and quietly plateauing in productivity, this time around the “AI” hype cycle?
