Are weak 'user interfaces' going to precipitate Technological Singularity earlier than predicted?

27 Replies 285 Views Created 03-06-2012

Accurately understanding information from a computer monitor's display is already difficult interpret. From what I can glean, the reason you can't get one to tell you coherently when there's a problem or when it's 'crashed' - is a combination of greed to get the product on the market, arrogance on the part of the manufacturer "you don't need to know this" & the fact if said computer malfunction isn't going to kill you, then it's deemed unnecessary to build redundancy into whatever the product is - courtesy to keep a customer informed doesn't seem to be an important factor.

 

It's being predicted, we'll be physically 'merging' with technology by the year 2050 - does anyone share my belief that because of the almost exponential (maybe it's faster than exponential) technological evolution we are a part of - that a) this transition is going to be a rather bumby road, b) poor 'user interface' may make AI systems have a need to speed up the whole process?

 

"Our fate was decided in a nano-second" - remember the film?

Do you think he'll be happy with what we've made of his thread so far then?

I think it's one of his better results if you ask me.

I couldn't agree with you more! 
The trouble is, the people who don't get banned are sometimes the ones that commit the most offences & because they're always ingratiating themselves with what I feel are rather 'trgger-happy' moderators, they seem to get away with it!
It also seems certain words are not permissable, not because they're expletives, (as they're not asterisked out when posted), but because they're deemed politically correct. I would have thought what would have been more efficient - is that ALL non-acceptable words should get the asterisk treatment (Yes SONY, do the necessary work!), so you know where you stand and can then edit them if you wish; though I think that's probably too much to expect - it seems to much trouble for them to even spell the word 'inappropriate' properly on 24hr ban notifications!
