Why Film "Her" Will Dominate UI Design Even More Than Minority Report

Why Film "Her" Will Dominate UI Design Even More Than Minority Report | Son of Siri | Scoop.it

A few weeks into the making of Her, Spike Jonze’s new flick about romance in the age of artificial intelligence, the director had something of a breakthrough.


After poring over the work of Ray Kurzweil and other futurists trying to figure out how, exactly, his artificially intelligent female lead should operate, Jonze arrived at a critical insight: Her, he realized, isn’t a movie about technology. It’s a movie about people. With that, the film took shape.


Sure, it takes place in the future, but what it’s really concerned with are human relationships, as fragile and complicated as they’ve been from the start.

A Scientist Predicts the Future

A Scientist Predicts the Future | Son of Siri | Scoop.it

When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future. Their accomplishments and dreams are eye-opening. From my conversations with them, here’s a glimpse of what to expect in the coming decades:

An Interview with Futurist Brian David Johnson

An Interview with Futurist Brian David Johnson | Son of Siri | Scoop.it

Tasked with mapping out how people will interact with computers and technology 10 to 15 years from now, David Johnson sees a world where digital data lives a secret life, computational intelligence vanishes like a ghost in everyday objects, and the future of fear becomes something that we can not only manage but perhaps even master.

What To Do About The Rise Of The Robots?

What To Do About The Rise Of The Robots? | Son of Siri | Scoop.it

For decades, increased automation has led to greater productivity, displacing some classes of jobs, but creating whole new industries.

Innovations like robots in factories, ATM machines and self checkouts in stores have all met with some grumbling, but have also lowered prices while providing more convenience.

 

Generally,the chattering classes have taken it in stride. After all, when poorly educated workers’ jobs are being replaced, they can be trained to do higher level work.  The attitude has basically been, “when computers can replace human thinking and intuition, then we’ll worry about it.”

 

Well, according to Race Against The Machines, a new book by MIT’s Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, it’s time to worry.
