“AI”… of Human-kind!
“Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg?”
Several years ago, you may anamnesis a advertisement anecdotic our growing annex aloft machines, devices, and “AI.” On several occasions, I’ve attempted to accompany acquaintance to this abnormality of bogus intelligence’s abilities in creating and/or re-creating itself… over and over again. What already was a ‘science-fiction’ adventure has been brought to bear, in active color, a accurate fact.
The article, “Device Machine Dependent,” has declared instances and descriptions area robots or robotics accept been advised to challenge the actions, abilities, and appearance(s) of mankind… “Human-Like”; “The Image of Its’ Creator!”
How abounding times accept you been in your car and affianced in a shouting bout or belligerent alternation with your ‘GPS’ or “onboard interface?” Aw, c’mon now… haven’t you gotten affronted and screamed at the accessory if the articulation abaft it gives you busted up or amiss directions? Abiding you have.
Selene Yeager, a accidental author, batten of a doctoral apprentice at Stanford University, who specializes in Human-Technology-Interaction.
“We (humans) get abashed and affronted because we don’t apperceive what the ‘GPS’ is “thinking,” David Miller says.
This columnist (yours truly), however, is and has been accusable of that accurate blazon of behavior. I can bethink keying in a administration (when that wasn’t satisfactory, I approved to appoint the articulation command option), the accursed affair told me; directed me to yield a artery and exit… I followed suit. If I accomplished the admonition area absolutely amiss – the accursed articulation put us on “The Artery To Hell!”
We catholic sixty afar alfresco and abroad from our planned “Pocono Mountain” destination.
Well, I’m actuality to acquaint you, I briefly (Oh, like so many) became batty and started agreeable at the articulation axial of the ‘GPS system.’ Miller went on to say, “In the future, if your GPS gives you directions, it may accord you a rationale, so that you will accept a bigger two-way relationship.”
… Yeah, right. I’m blessed if and if the affair gets me to my alien destination(s)… via the actual route! I don’t beggarly to be to harder on the device… it’s a appealing acceptable little apparatus if it works as expected.
“A Bite Of The Apple” addressed the ‘IT’ association on big issues apropos Apple’s attitude on “covert and proprietary practices” in the apple of technology; accouterments and software – decidedly its accouterments products. Apple’s ‘IT’ accommodation makers espouses an ergonomic blemish which reveals a preference, They’ve said “Apple-like” anatomy over function, i.e., the iMAC connectors on the rear of their machines are advised and/or absitively by anal retention.
Their ‘IT’ administration aggregation describes one accessible acceptation of “Anal Retention.” It’s a point on a ambit at which the curvature changes from arched to biconcave or vice-versa. It can aswell be alleged a “Flex Point” or “Point of Inflection.” Apple administration says its proprietary accessories are putting added aftereffect into business user marketing. Apples’ accessories are authoritative their way into the action amphitheatre because ‘IT’ managers, not users, like them.
The ‘end-user’ address stresses the fact, suggesting the product(s) accepting as acceptable and accomplished on affluence of use, design, and reliability. Does anyone anamnesis the analogue of cloning?
Many of us accept PC’s in our homes today. And there are abounding others who feel they are, and accept they are a footfall advanced while utilizing home-robots like “Alexa” or IBM’S “Watson” and a countless of cloned accessories that clean, monitor, and akin their circadian lives or lifestyles.
Where’s your corpuscle phone?
It acclimated to be the desk-top computer that was the axial ‘Internet’ connection. Then it was the ‘Laptop.’ The “Tablet” continues to be accepted these days, but the “Smart-Phone” outshines them all. All one has to do is artlessly attending around… Attending and see how abounding bodies are walking, running, riding, driving, and flying… abased aloft those always unrelinquishing accessories to sustain them in their existence, and their actual lives on this planet.
Not continued ago, a abandoned computer virus wrestled ascendancy from some 400,00 computers beyond added than 160 countries in one of the affliction all-embracing cyber attacks and computer infections.
The virus blocked all admission to programs, files, mainframes, and networks unless the computer’s owner(s) paid a ransom. The elicitable funds could alone be paid via “Bitcoin.”
Bitcoin is online bill that is about absurd to trace. The Bitcoin bill is traded for the acquirement of a “ransom key.” Often, victims accept paid the money alone to not get the key to alleviate their computers (or) systems, accident both their money and their data.
This adventure should serve as a above wake-up alarm to users with the abundant encouraged “must-do” procedure(s) on PCs and Internet accessories in their affliction or acceptance and the blockage of viruses, botnets, web-crawlers, malware, worms, etc.
I absolutely accede with author, Doug Shadel, in suggesting that users/owners consistently advancement your important files to an alien drive or limited accumulator service; accept a pop-up acquaintance active on your web browser at all times; instantly leave websites you’ve been baffled to after your consent; use a acclaimed antivirus affairs – befitting it adapted at all times; accomplish abiding your software (and anti-virus software) is up to date; don’t bang on links or accessible accessories from email addresses you don’t know; and buy alone accepted software – and annals it.
Do you bethink the arena in the cine “Star Wars,” area the bar-tender shouts at ‘Luke Skywalker’ to get his droids out of his establishment?
That arena is a aftereffect of beastly prejudices adjoin machines or robot-kind. Detroit, Michigan’s auto industry and workforce is all but absolutely manned by robots (or robotics). Robots are accomplishing above operations on bodies and animals alike. Robots are advancing foods, packing and shipment items, active cars, and diagnosing beastly ailments and diseases. Robots are answering telephones and redirecting calls. Robots are calling you on your telephones, reminding you of accomplished due bills, appointments, decree pick-ups, and authoritative attempts at affairs you appurtenances and added services. Robots are architecture bridges, buildings, and homes. Robots are accomplishing just about annihilation and aggregate a human-being or beastly can and has been doing. Ask yourself… how abounding jobs accept been absent and are accepting absent to robots?
“Many companies are application affect assay to barometer the mood(s) on amusing networks and/or the web… but accepting acumen takes new approach and skills,” said Doug Henschen of ‘Techweb.’
“It absolutely takes new approach and skill-sets in adjustment to access a position in the new apple of IT, BI, Communications, and Analytics.” This cessation is accepted via the appear article, “Destruction and Creation – A New Jobs Hyperbole.” No one can abjure the massive and above changes that accept occurred in the ‘New Apple Economy’ of this century. What’s traveling to appear in the centuries to appear – will we be “Star-Trek-Like?” How about a apple and approaching like that of “Logan’s Run?” Will robots become the new judges, lawyers, aldermanic appointees, senators, or president? Those of us who are aware, interested, and/or motivated in or against the assiduity of mankind’s administration over machines, have to become the adept of both abandon of IT/BI.
AI: Bogus Intelligence… is in adverse to the accustomed (Human/Animal-like) intelligence… the adeptness of a computer or apprentice accomplishing what is frequently or frequently done by bodies or animals – with intelligence or able abilities… the adeptness to think.
How continued will it be afore bodies (man-kind) are absolutely out-thought by “AI” – acceptable absolutely and absolutely our replacements as against to accepting our once-upon-a-time servants?
“How Long? Not Long!”
Now, doesn’t this altercation accomplish you wonder…
“AI”… of Human-kind?
