'By those standards El Reg articles would probably score a big fat 0.'
But as long as there are humans around, you will always be loved.
Start with a joke: As I have the tendency to digitise books from the 70's, one about medieval philosphy in an alternative spelling as fashionable at the time in Holland, I had to reread every vowel and consonant to transpose it properly to current spelling, after a few rounds of machine aided correction. Yet, I found a beautifull screw-up, when I stumbled across the word 'incest'... Wondering what the machine meant, I looked back at the source, where it was perfectly legible 'meest' (most). (I am afraid we're doomed...)
Do contradict me when I am mistaken, on the point of AI itself. As I understand, intelligence is dependend on the function of the creature - swap the intelligence of a cow with that of a tiger, and milking becomes a dangerous job. And vice versa, your kitten has become a vegatarian. Since this is the development of millions of years of small iterations on top of that... there are probblems to foresee, one is that of the response the AI has to give; it will be mostly to machines. As far as I can see, AI will never be 'human'; nor capable af catering to human needs, the most likely thing that will happen is that robots start 'herding' people, as far as they are not doing it yet: there are entire industries, with millions of people dedicated to this artificial 'entity', or 'parasite', as I prefer to call it. ... Enabling the current volume of humanity, by the use of incredible power, more or less directly from the sun, to grow a big as it is. ... Is AI not becoming a layer on top of our civilisation, as a 'parasite', a kind of creature that by definition changes the behavior of the 'host', to its own, blind end?
End with a 'deep' thought: what if we would define the start of the antropocene with the invention of the first transistor in 1947, and call it, I don't know, Machene?
