How to tell when a robot has written you a letter?

How to tell when a robot has written you a letter - The Message - Medium

I first heard of these human-machine handwriting differences in a conversation last week with Brian Curliss and Daniel Jurek, the cofounders of the startup Maillift. If you need to send out 200 personalized letters to sales leads but haven’t got the time to handwrite them yourself — or if your handwriting is, like mine, grotesque — then Maillift will generate them for you, using teams of genuinely carbon-based people. (What sort of person enjoys handwriting letters for others? “Teachers,” Curliss replies. Apparently teachers have spectacular handwriting, take enormous pride in the craft, and want to make some extra coin in their evenings and weekends.)
Curliss and Jurek also own a handwriting robot, so they’ve studied thousands of human-written letters and compared them to ones produced by machines. They’ve identified three crucial distinctions. They are:

The Age of Networked Matter

In the next ten years we will enter the Age of Networked Matter, in which the connections between biology and machinery are brought to the forefront and we begin to rethink our roles in the world. Robots will form their own social networks, chairs will be digitally-rights managed, microbes will talk to kitchens, and every object will be six degrees away from the rest of the world.

Out 1 Video Essay Project Posts in Notebook | MUBI | New Media Narratives | Scoop.it
Elizabeth Kilroy's insight:

French new wave director Jacques Rivette's 1971 epic work Out 1: Moli Me Tangere screened in its near-13 hour entirety at MIFF 2014, over 4 sessions on the weekend of 9-10 August.

In response, MIFF facilitated a video essay project responding to the many themes and multi-layered complexity of the work. This video essay series complements some of the conversations and explorations of the participants in the inaugural 2014 MIFF Critics Campus lab.

Commissioned by Chris Luscri for Melbourne International Film Festival, the project was endorsed by Michelle Carey, MIFF Artistic Director, co-hosted by Danny Kasman at MUBI, and facilitated by Asha Holmes Publicity.

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online.
Elizabeth Kilroy's insight:

"Photographers are no longer constrained as humble suppliers to platforms managed and controlled by others; thinking as publishers allows them to choose their themes, audiences, and the means of expression and distribution. How we grasp the opportunities before us becomes partly a matter of problem solving and, more significantly, a challenge of imagination." -

Delivery by drone: French postal video shows it can be done | Jeff John Roberts | GigaOM Tech News

Delivery by drone: French postal video shows it can be done | Jeff John Roberts | GigaOM Tech News | New Media Narratives | Scoop.it

Amazon and Google may have some catching up to do. It turns out the mail service of France, La Poste, has already successfully field-tested a service that can fly a package to a remote area, drop it off and return home.

As the video below shows, the service dubbed Géodrone involves a small drone with six rotors that can deliver a 9-pound (4 kg) package up to 12 miles (20 km) away. A postal worker loads the package onto the drone, which then unloads it automatically at the recipient’s address and flies off.

 

News reports say from France say the test took place near the town of Pourrières, which is in the southern region of Provence. La Poste has not specified when the service will be in full swing, but suggested that it anticipates using Géodrone to provide service to residents in remote mountainous and maritime regions.

 

The Géodrone project represents another impressive achievement for France’s emerging unmanned aircraft industry. Earlier this year, drone enthusiasts in the Alps conducted a Star Wars-style pod race in a French forest with the permission of the local government. Meanwhile, a researcher in Holland has showed how an ambulance drone can deliver a defibrillator to a heart attack victim in under two minutes.

 

Such experiments stand in marked contrast to what is occurring in the United States, where a dysfunctional rule-making process at the Federal Aviation Administration has brought drone deployment to a virtual stand-still, even as American companies are clamoring to use them for business purposes. The U.S. approach also differs markedly from Canada, where authorities have issued hundreds of permits to use drones in everything from farming to real estate to TV production.
