Oh I do like a good joke on a friday evening.
if we agree that there are such concepts as "Good AI" and "Bad AI" then there will be someone who decides that making a "Bad AI" is good for them and will do it. Telling them not to will not help, making it illegal will not help, punishing them for doing it will not help. It will happen because there are "Good people" and "Bad people".
The problem is that religion is ingrained in our society because our society is founded upon religion. However hard we try it is so deeply entwined in everything we do that even us atheists can't help it. Fucking Hell! There I go again and I don't believe in the place. And religions have been fighting each other for thousands of years because it isn't about religion, it is about tribal warfare. We have always been a tribal species fighting against other tribes for supremacy, religion is just the latest face on this conflict. Can we ever escape from this cycle?
Clearly we don't speed because it saves time, as it doesn't significantly on most journeys. It's much more likely that we do it because it is fun, for 2 reasons:
1 you are being naughty and breaking the rules.
2 it's just so much more fun pushing your car to the limits (a little) ;-)
So the best way to stop us from speeding would be to make it illegal to sell cars that could exceed the speed limit. But they won't do that. Do we really need cars that will do 100+ mph? Do we want them?
Welcome our self-driving autonomous-johnny-cab overlords.
Imagine being driven back from the pub / that party intoxicated in the middle of the night without having to wait 2 hours for a taxi or risk being arrested or killing yourself driving home drunk.
Want to go on holiday but it's a 7 hour drive (yes I do this). Set the destination, go to sleep, be driven through the night when the roads are nice and empty arriving there in time for breakfast. Bliss.
When I get home my phone connects to that rather than my home network giving me a shit service until I remember and manually kick it over to the right network. I have never found it to be useful as it is *always* so pitifully slow to be unusable. What a complete waste of time! Grrrrrr.... Maybe I should sue them for wasting my time! aha!
The screen on the 6+ breaks if you drop it. Some sorry individual sat next to me the other day had the first broken iPhone 6+ I've seen A lovely spidery-web of cracks coming from the corner it had presumably landed on :-) And he'd gone to the trouble of putting a screen protector on it. Oh how I chuckled quietly to myself :-)
Our local cinema has a bargain Tuesday, each Tuesday all films are only £3.75. I take my own bags of sweeties in to munch on but do pay £3.05 for a drink, sneaking one of those in could be a bit awkward (perhaps I should try it) and mostly I have a good evening out for 2 for under a tenner. We have our favourite seats where there aren't any phone wielding twunts infront of us and have seen some excellent films. But I must admit paying full price to see a film does make my eyes water.
