Image a game you watch being played by the computer instead of you. The joystick moves, apeing the computer's decisions. You can override if the character does something idiotic. Now, how long til your brain shuts off, and you react too late when the character runs into a sword.
Now: imagine it's a car. You are in it. Your hand hovers over the wheel, trying every second to outguess the computer. You have a quarter second to react. You fail. You die.
Fist bump, my brother.
You're imagining we're going to reengineer reality to fit the app?
Indded. We'd be committing everyone - poor, old, rich, young - to constantly rebuy cars on a schedule that automakers decide. They could obsolete cars at will. Or set up subsciption services - brake control, GPS maps, charge us for our own surveillance.
What is unbelievable is they think that cars are retired every five years or so, so obsolence won't be a problem. They know perfectly well that people keep cars for ten - fifteen years because, well, they're bloody expensive. They want that option gone. We'll be on an upgrade cycle like PCs, and enormously profitable one.
Cars, esp. electric cars, can easily last twenty years. Change the batteries, the motor bearings, seals, and it can keep going. That is a huge problem for car manufacturers. Computer controlled everything fixes all that for them.
And yet, Google gave up. Time to accept.
Those things on the road are not self-driving cars. They are apps that can, with human oversight, kinda imitate a human driver in careully orchestrated conditions. But there are *no* self-driving cars out there. And Google just gave up.
The real goal is self-driving trucks and taxis. They want to fire all the drivers and keep all the money, so there is a lot of *want* on the part of capital. But we haven't built an AI that can match a trained human. If we have such, they'd have shown the robots proudly whipping around the streets, unpiloted. There aren't. Maybe someday we can do it, but right now we're being bamboozed by billionaires who are bamboozling themselves.
Missouri rule: Show me.
Too many things a toaster can't do. The most important: actual human thought.
So, no facts can enter your bubble, then.
He's a con artist. He dropped a couple of positions already. He lied, people.
As they have depressed the market for native techies, it follows they've depressed the desire of people to enter that job market, so they *will* see a shortage of candidates now.
I don't care how clever you all think you are, you cannot design a system that cannot be hacked.
We've gone far too far, hooking up control and command to the internet. We did it to fire people and save money, or at least divert the money once given to ticket takers to computer companies.
So, this is what the future is.
Rides were free yesterday.
This site is loaded with post-truthers.
SERIOUSLY. One of you read it. ONE. Yet you all seem to think you know all about it.
Odd, as almost every single conservative Republican officeholder in Congress ducked military service, whereas the cowardly liberals have dozens. Reagan did propaganda films in Hollywood, Bush W decided he didn't feel like flying anymore and discharged himself.
Measure twice, cut once.
