I think I can catch spanish AM posts on my car radio. Not sure fron where, though
We're a long way from that. A looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong way! (That's really not enough o's, but I had to stop somewhere).If that's stuff is authentic it might be a turning point in the story of manking, the creation of an artificial sentient being.
Ah, the good old chinese room fallacy...
There's a bit of a thing going on at NASA, with 'AI Ethics' researchers getting fired after they raise the issue that some of the stuff may be self-aware etc. I don't know if it's an issue of the AI getting so good that it's fooling researchers or something elseIf that's stuff is authentic it might be a turning point in the story of manking, the creation of an artificial sentient being. I hope they are careful and that they know what they are doing. It raise not only security concerns but also ethical ones.
An AI being able communicate in written form indistinguishable from a human (i.e. stand the turing test) is certainly imaginable, and probably not that far of given proper funding. It's not a technical problem anymore, it's a pedagogic problem. "AI pedagogics" may sound like a weird term, but I think it'll become a very important field in the decades to come. Because there's not that much you can improve in the basic concept of a neural network. You can always make it faster and more efficient, but most of the overhead is inherrent in the structure. But training the darn things... that's the challenge.One could say that, with enough info, a well designed AI could mimic 'being human' to the point of being indistinguishable from one
Wait 'till you see the 'we didn't land on Mars' stuff. As for the new cars , I don't know what to say. Cheesy costumes, quite cheesy cars. I'm biased towards classic cars, but that Tesla with them besides it reminds me of a local antivaxx guy who used to drive one and always put on a full-face visor when exiting . I don't care if theyuse a Lambo or Bugatti, it just has to look cool. And that van with center-facing seats looks like it doesn't have too much leg roomI don't think it would be the case today (despite we have the Internet and so on). I'd say it had to do that in the 1960's people had generally faith in technological progress, that it would improve mankind. I'd say our era is much less optimistic (despite people use way more technology in their lives. Maybe technology is just "too common".).
I'd say it's because of it. Or rather, technology has, in many areas, developed way beyond we could have imagined, and yet people stayed the same. There's only so much koolaid you can drink before you have to acknowledge that the whole techno-eschatology is a bunch of hogwash. We're not going to change just because our lifes get easier.I'd say it had to do that in the 1960's people had generally faith in technological progress, that it would improve mankind.
