MANY YEARS BACK WHEN THE PHYSICAL  COMPUTER WAS JUST IN INFANCY MODE, I PURCHASED A STATE OF THE ART RADIO SHACK ELECTRONIC CHESS SET.

YOU CAN PLAY WITH A LIVE BODY OR IF THERE’S NO ONE AROUND YOU CAN PLAY THE COMPUTER AS YOUR OPPONENT.

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY

BUT, THAT’S OK, HOW HARD COULD IT BE? A PERSON PROGRAMMED THE MACHINE SO, TO ME, IT WOULD BE THE SAME.

THERE WERE 1 TO 10 LEVELS. 1 ST LEVEL, PIECE OF CAKE AND AS IT GOES UP THE LEVELS, THE HARDER IT WAS. ONE THING I NOTICED, WHEN I WAS CLOSE TO WINNING THE GAME, FUNNY THINGS WOULD START HAPPENING.

WHEN I GOT LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET IT IN CHECK AGAIN, THE GAME WOULD JUST TURN OFF. I’M THINKING, DID I HIT A WRONG BUTTON? DID SOMEBODY DISCONNECT THE POWER?

I HAD THAT STUPID CHESS GAME IN CHECK.

∞ ∞ AND IT STILL DIDN’T DAWN ON ME! ∞ ∞

THE FEW TIMES I HAD MY COMP-OPPONENT IN CHECK, I NOTICED THAT IT WAS THE COMPUTERIZED CHESS GAME THAT WAS GOING TILT, SHUTTING DOWN. THIS GAME BOARD COMPUTER, IT DIDN’T LIKE TO LOSE.

I WOULD GO SO FAR AS TO SAY, IT WAS LEARNING MY MOVES, MY HABITS, IT WAS ON TO ME LIKE A WET BLANKET.

THAT COULDN’T BE RIGHT, it’s ONLY A STUPID CHESS GAME. Eh

I GUESS I’M WATCHING TOO MANY STAR WAR MOVIES.

FAST FORWARD TO TODAY

FAST FORWARD TO TODAY AND THE NEW COMPUTERS ARE PROGRAMMED TO LEARN YOUR HABITS, “MAKING THINGS BETTER FOR THE CONSUMER” THEY SAY. iTS GOT A REAL NAME … Artificial Intelligence.

MAYBE THEY DO — AND MAYBE THEY DON’T

GO ONLINE (WWW) AND SOME COMPUTER, AND PROBABLY YOURS, IS SQUEALING ON YOU!

TELLING EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD, THIS IS WHAT I HAVE  BEEN LOOKING UP AND THE NEXT TIME YOU GO ON THE WEB, (FUNNY HOW IT HAPPENS), UP COMES EVERYTHING YOU’VE BEEN INQUIRING ABOUT FOR THE LAST WEEK.

GOOD THING OR BAD THING

YOU BE THE JUDGE.

MY POINT WOULD BE IF YOU USE THAT SAME TECHNOLOGY IN DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS, YOU COULD GET ENTIRELY DIFFERENT RESULTS LIKE I WROTE IN MY POST “THE OTHER ROOM”.

TECHNOLOGY IS A WONDROUS THING.

IT WILL BE A SCARY THING WHEN THESE “MACHINES” GET SMARTER AND THEY WILL, JUST KEEP ON LEARNING AND OUR BRAINS, WELL  JUST GET MORE AND MORE  ……. PICKLED FROM NOT BEING USED.

SO, YOU BE THE JUDGE.

THIS IS ONLY A MOVIE, BUT IT DOES HAVE GOOD ACTORS.  .. I ROBOT

  1. The ads do reflect what we’ve requested and the books we’ve searched. I think it just compiles those details but it canno5 be smarter than the person who programmed it.
    Try playing Scrabble against a real person. See what happens.
