“AI” Of Human-Kind

“AI”… of Human-kind!

“Which Came First, The Chicken Or The Egg?”

Several years ago, you may recall a publication describing our growing dependency upon machines, devices, and “AI.” On several occasions, I’ve attempted to bring awareness to this phenomenon of artificial intelligence’s abilities in creating and/or re-creating itself… over and over again. What once was a ‘science-fiction’ story has been brought to bear, in living color, a scientific fact.

The article, “Device Machine Dependent,” has described instances and descriptions where robots or robotics have been designed to emulate the actions, abilities, and appearance(s) of mankind… “Human-Like”; “The Image of Its’ Creator!”

How many times have you been in your car and engaged in a shouting match or argumentative interaction with your ‘GPS’ or “onboard interface?” Aw, c’mon now… haven’t you gotten angry and screamed at the device when the voice behind it gives you screwed up or wrong directions? Sure you have.

Selene Yeager, a contributing author, spoke of a doctoral student at Stanford University, who specializes in Human-Technology-Interaction.

“We (humans) get confused and angry because we don’t know what the ‘GPS’ is “thinking,” David Miller says.

This author (yours truly), however, is and has been guilty of that particular type of behavior. I can remember keying in a direction (when that wasn’t satisfactory, I tried to engage the voice command option), the damned thing told me; directed me to take a highway and exit… I followed suit. When I realized the directions where totally wrong – the accursed voice put us on “The Highway To Hell!”

We traveled sixty miles outside and away from our planned “Pocono Mountain” destination.

Well, I’m here to tell you, I momentarily (Oh, like so many) became insane and started screaming at the voice inside of the ‘GPS system.’ Miller went on to say, “In the future, when your GPS gives you directions, it may give you a rationale, so that you will have a better two-way relationship.”

… Yeah, right. I’m happy when and if the thing gets me to my unfamiliar destination(s)… via the correct route! I don’t mean to be to hard on the device… it’s a pretty good little tool when it works as expected.

“A Bite Of The Apple” addressed the ‘IT’ community on big issues concerning Apple’s stance on “covert and proprietary practices” in the world of technology; hardware and software – particularly its hardware products. Apple’s ‘IT’ decision makers espouses an ergonomic flaw which reveals a preference, They’ve said “Apple-like” form over function, i.e., the iMAC connectors on the rear of their machines are designed and/or decided by anal retention.

Their ‘IT’ management team describes one possible meaning of “A
