Why The Future Of Technology Is All Too Human

Why The Future Of Technology Is All Too Human | Gentlemachines | Scoop.it

While the past favored those who could retain and process information efficiently, the future belongs to those who can imagine a better world and work with others to make it happen.

Artur Alves's insight:

"For the past century or so, the most reliable path to wealth has been the ability to process information.  That’s what got you into the most prestigious universities and graduate programs, which led to a career at a prestigious firm. Yet, the reason that information processing has been so highly valued is precisely because humans are so bad at it.

So it shouldn’t be surprising that computers are taking over what we have come to regard as high-level human tasks.  We did not evolve to optimize, but to survive and, perhaps most of all, to collaborate with others to ensure our survival.  We are, after all, creatures of biology, not silicon."

While I understand some people wish everything was a computer.  The vast majority of humans need a physical and emotional connection...something "artificial intelligence" cannot give you.

Francisco Restivo's curator insight, March 7, 4:07 AM

I believe that we have to recenter the human machine relationship, and this must be done from school, letting young kids learn that they control the machine, and not the other way round.

Computational thinking and critical thinking are for humans.

Robot warriors: Lethal machines coming of age

Robot warriors: Lethal machines coming of age | Gentlemachines | Scoop.it
Engineers are designing robots that will kill on future battlefields without human intervention - and the ethics are being hotly debated.
Artur Alves's insight:

Automation of warfare is in full swing, and ethics is once again brought to the foreground. Just how autonomous can killing robots be?

Almost half the jobs Americans thought were safe will soon be done by robots

Computers have been an important part of many industries for decades already and have replaced humans in many jobs.
Artur Alves's insight:

With current automation already handling most of past physical labour-intensive activities, we should expect new inroads to happen in clerical jobs and motor coordination-intensive activity. The next 20 years will witness a new wave of human obsolescence.
