And the story of a man who crossed the bridge.....
This post is pure gold, it goes to show how our legacy systems and our attachments to them causes far more harm than good in the long term.
It also shows how difficult it is for people accustomed to the status quo to move on and try new things, often only after suffering mentally and financially for a long period of time.
The lesson here is that Change is a constant...adapt or die.
With the launch of Sentient Technologies AI powered e-commerce assistant we're starting to see how intelligent systems will interact with people.
Predictive analytics can help cognitive agents anticipate what a user wants and present the information without the user having to type keywords or drill-down through menus etc.
This makes me wonder if the UI balance sways more in the direction of presentation and away from the direction of user input.
While this is still early days for AI based systems being everywhere it is still very exciting.
edit: writing the post above reminded me of this article:
Reading the comments on an article regarding 's visit to NZ to talk about emerging Tech and the comments by most readers range from cynical to downright negative (with very few exceptions).
It seems that most people have chosen to accept that the future is nothing but doom and gloom.
It is very sad to see that while the world is getting better in almost every way people still choose to see half the picture and focus on the negatives in life, wonder if this has anything to do with mainstream media "rolls eyes"
This does make me wonder, How can we show the world that things are actually getting better? While there are still many problems to solve many people out there are working tirelessly to solve said problems and they're making really good progress in that regard.
First time I've heard of Rose's law but if it's true then this could be interesting to say the least.
This is an interesting post on how AI and intelligent systems (read: Apps, Devices) can use context awareness , Geo-location, NLP and other methods to provide the user with the information they need when they need it, regardless of the device they're using.
The writer the founder of Snips.ai , a company which seems to be working on building a system similar to Google Now in some respects, its very interesting to read about the founder's thoughts on the matter of cognified apps.
The ideas of ubiquitous computing and natural UIs hold so much potential, they can fulfill the original promise of computer technology which is to allow us to do far more with less and free so much of our time.
The journey towards ubiquitous computing is still in its early days but I have a feeling we'll progress through it relatively quickly.
So as I've been going through more and more tutorials and resources on Neural Networks and Machine learning I am finding a lot of references to the history and how Marvin Minsky's work during the time set the field back and basically caused an AI winter.
Is there much truth to that? If so and given how far the field has come over the last few years I wonder if Minsky and those who believed his work to be an absolute truth at the time happen to feel any regret?

Tonight at 9pm Eastern the second Democratic Debate will commence on CBS. Yeah, on a Sat night when very few people will actually watch it, robbing Bernie of some well needed exposure to try to level the playing field. But luckily YOU can help. Use Social Media (the people's media) to spread the word and cheer Bernie on. First however seek out real world events to attend:
Map to find an event near you http://map.berniesanders.com/?nov14#zipcode=&distance=50&eventtype=D&daterange=all-events&sort=distance
If there is no event near you, CREATE one. Maybe only 3 people will show up, but it's a chance to form a cell for Bernie that can do greater organizing later on. http://go.BernieSanders.com/page/event/create
Online Live stream of CBS debate http://www.cbsnews.com/live/
And remember that the topic will be shifted to foreign policy: CBS Shifts Emphasis of Democratic Debate to Reflect Paris Attacks
Once the debate starts, use the hashtags #DemDebate and #DebateWithBernie on every G+, FB, Twitter post. Refute lies, and reshare posts from Bernie's teams:
Debunk the common lies being spread about Bernie by copying/pasting sections from here:
In this post Scott Santens talks about how some journalists have written about Universal Basic Income, formed their own opinions and views without even citing any research on the subject.
This is something which I have encountered myself when I've discussed the idea with others, people seem to jump into conclusion and assume that society will behave in a certain way once everyone is given money via UBI, guess which way that is -_-
The experiments which have been done to date however seem to prove the opposite of people's opinions on the matter, for those who are new to this the results of the experiments were very positive.
