Comments12/09/2017 #2 Harvey LloydWelcome to beBee and i am fascinated by the prospects of autonomous driving. My concerns lie more in the system rather than the product. We know corporations with fleets of trucks, mechanics and service centers provide maintenance. The system once out of the lab where an individual or team of individuals is maintaining, we now have a service mechanic not part of the original design team.
Humans, through self preservation, can quickly understand a vehicle is unsafe through their senses. Computers can certainly sense this also but the millions of combinations of small safety issues is a lot of code and expectation for a bank of CPU's.
My secondary concern is that if technology continues to replace the worker/professional at the rate of 10-1 (Made up, probably greater than that) We may not need trucks as the consumer no longer exists. Under our current capitalistic system everyone works to serve the consumer which purchases and grows in wealth and buys more, creating more jobs. This is a simplistic view of a complex concept.
Eventually we will have to deal with food, clothing and shelter differently in order for us to live without working in a capitalistic economic structure. I hope i live long enough to witness this transformation from earning to serving without wealth being involved.12/09/2017 #1 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWelcome to beBee @Lindsey Patterson. You made a lot of valid points about self-driving vehicles. I guess my main concerns would be loss of jobs for Truck Drivers which could impact our economy, and computers malfunction as well. I keep thinking of the long road trips I've done which have many Mountains, steep grades and truckers have been known to lose their braking system having to climb up a steep hill (sorry, there is a term for that) in order to allow the truck to stop. Not sure a smart truck would know to do that? And, blowing a tire, losing tread.. so many things to factor in. I see it coming though. I wonder what others think?

Comments02/09/2017 #15 Geoff Hudson-Searle#14 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt I am of the same opinion, that we can change in an instant, the question is how much we really want this change, do we just like the idea or concept or are we committed to change and transformation. This is another great subject, thank you for these great contributions.02/09/2017 #14 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#11 speaking of gut reaction and intuition. Intuition is a source of reflection and vice versa.
I believe that we can change ourselves instantly, including the intuitive response. But it is hard to convince others that i have changed, so i do not try.
For eg... we may percieve an environment as different , knowingly or unknowingly, thereby changing the response mechanism.
Thanks for such an informative and quick response.02/09/2017 #13 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#12 I like your philosophy on life Geoff. I think certain apps can cause regret as well as Social Media Platforms if people have high expectation or tend to compare themselves to others. Facebook is a great example. They've done studies and found people can become depressed if they use FB a lot. Because, they do tend to compare their lives with those of others. It's easy to make it appear as though one is living the most exciting and 'perfect' life on FB but that can be an illusion many times. There is a great site for men called the Goodmenproject.com which men write about many topics including dating. I love to read the articles when I have time to understand the male perspective more.02/09/2017 #12 Geoff Hudson-Searle#9 Thank you @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher for your kindness and words, I did smile at your words, I still have a landline too :-) I think matt has a point across the amount of time spent on a single app, by comparison, research has shown the average person looks at his or her phone for a little more than an hour (62 minutes) each day, however this really does escalate to quite insane levels of scale. I feel one of the problems in apps is across increased choice, which, can make us miserable because of regret, self-blame and opportunity costs. Worse, increased choice has created a new problem: the escalation in expectations. At a certain point, choice shifts from having a positive relationship with happiness to an inverse one. So, what’s the answer? “The secret to happiness is low expectations,” One of the biggest areas affected is dating. Relationships are being treated like any other product – online we can browse and compare prospective sexual partners. One of those problems was noted by the comedian Aziz Ansari in his book Modern Romance. In it, a woman recounts meeting a man on the dating app Tinder, then spending the journey to their first date swiping through the service to see if anyone better was available. Failure to commit to a date or a relationship can itself be a choice – indeed, the extraordinary rise and surprising appeal of living alone to account for those who have stepped off the treadmill of dating, the nightmare of having more choice but less reason to choose, choosing real-life romantic relationships will become even less appealing. Like you Lisa, I will take real people and Human to Human first before any new app or artificial intelligence invention!02/09/2017 #11 Geoff Hudson-Searle#8 Great to hear from you @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt and to hear your prospective. We all have choices to make in life, using your statement as a metaphor "Stop the world i want to get off" in one way or another, the decisions above and many others are the result of the circumstances of our lives. Choice architecture was outlined by behavioral economist Richard Thaler and legal scholar Cass Sunstein. It highlights the power of the an instinctual response that is based on intuition. Known as the Automatic System, this is a gut reaction to the world around us it’s almost instantaneous, and is not to be classified as traditional thinking. This is contrast to our Reflective System which is deliberate and employs logic and reason to make decisions. I still feel that time restraints can be a fear barrier, I love to play tennis, unless I really make time, it will never happen with the demands of daily life. I really enjoyed this interaction Devesh!02/09/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWonderful buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle. I believe @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood once wrote a buzz or article about using social media. He suggested to others not to spend more than 20 minutes per day on each site. Most people who are pushing material through Social Media use 3-4 sites. I have tried to follow that rule.
People who know me also know I still use a landline as my main source of communication and I would rather talk face to face vs. texting. I had to let my family and some friends know that if they just want to chat, CALL ME. I hate texting unless it benefits a group of people or it's something quick that doesn't require a phone call. My husband and I both put away our cell phones when out to dinner. He used to have a bad habit of checking email way too often when we were out and it upset me. So, we agreed to put them aside... he more than me ;-) I don't even had FB Messenger on my phone, it was eating up my battery and I felt invaded or overwhelmed if I had my phone with me.
Call me old fashioned but I still prefer people to apps. Apps serve a great purpose and I do use them. It should be interesting to see what AI comes out with over time.02/09/2017 #8 Devesh 🐝 BhattWarnings are to raise awareness and caution.. not fear and doubt.
Everything is a source of everythig else including introspection and reflection.
Why do i miss out on it or what i feel as the cause of lapse in all of us? Time contraints. They have a funny way of getting us to blindside ourselves.
Liked this phrase."Stop the world i want to get off" model. Its just a reflection that sources an introspection that i cannot carry on.
Enjoyed this buzz. Thanks01/09/2017 #6 Geoff Hudson-Searle#3 I love this thought @Louise Smith imagine the looks on the faces at the table, 'you want me to put away my phone, why?' lol Reminds me of a movie 'Perfect Strangers' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS17FbxW1KA There was another Romcom I watched where the couple purchased a house accidentally because of predictable text, they did not speak to one another, they put their phones away, there was silence and once they forces verbal communication they finally found one another again :-) Real Human 2 Human conversation. A study lead by Dr Sally Andrews, a psychologist in Nottingham Trent University's School of Social Sciences has discovered that the average person checks their device 85 times a day, spending a total of five hours browsing the web and using apps. This equates to around a third of the time a person is awake, and is twice as often as many people even realise. Psychology lecturer, Dr Zaheer Hussain, from the University of Derby study said that higher scores of narcissism - defined as excessive interest or admiration of oneself and one’s physical appearance - is the most common and obvious sign of the addiction. This could involve posting selfies or multiple statuses over a short period of time. I try not to think what life will be like in 20 months, 20 years will be life changing! :-)01/09/2017 #5 Geoff Hudson-Searle#2 Thank you for your opinions and prospective @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris Is it a choice or is it a risk? That's rhetorical :-) What do you choose? And what values inform your choice? We like to think we have choices in all matters, and that we exercise values in making our choices. This is perhaps particularly true with regard to new technologies, from incremental ones that build on existing products, such as new apps, to more fundamental technologies such as lethal autonomous robots. But in reality we understand that our choices are always significantly limited, and that our values shift over time and in unpredictable ways. I think it is premature to say that we understand how to implement meaningful choice and responsible values when it comes to emerging technologies. Indeed, much of what we do today is naive and superficial, steeped in reflexive ideologies and overly rigid worldviews. But the good news is that we do know how to do better, and some of the steps we should take. It is, of course, a choice based on the values we hold as to whether we do so.....01/09/2017 #4 Geoff Hudson-Searle#1 It is a pleasure to mention you in this Buzz @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Thank you for your kindness in words and for your gratitude in our discussions. This subject appears to be reoccurring as a constant theme, the constant band-aiding of the quick fix from low self-worth or depression. An interesting fact; according to a recent study by UK disability charity Scope, of 1500 Facebook and Twitter users surveyed, 62 percent reported feeling inadequate and 60 percent reported feelings of jealousy from comparing themselves to other users. Professor Margaret Duffy, one of the professors who co-authored the research, has stated “If social media is used as a way to size up one's own accomplishments against others, it can have a negative effect,”. She explains that if it’s used “to see how well an acquaintance is doing financially or how happy an old friend is in his relationship - things that cause envy among users - use of the site can lead to feelings of depression.” Our capacity for Apps has reached an all time limit in more ways than we can imagine, mental health is one area, people are not able to reflect because they are being judged, how can an app rank your intimate marriage or relationship? We are losing our ability to be free ourselves to conquer our inner most desires, feelings, happiness and to understand love. Or is love and happiness just a myth?01/09/2017 #3 Louise Smith"I challenge you to put away your phones when you are eating with people. Do not even set it on the table. Remove the temptation to use it and talk to the people around you. Truly listen to them, without distractions like phones. Maybe when you are using public transportation, talk to the person sitting next to you, asking that person how their day was, smiling at them and paying attention to them will be the highlight of their day."
This is just normal for me. The old kind of normal ? My mobile stays in it's charging bed on silent most of the time - prob 80%.
I can say categorically - it never comes to the dining or the kitchen table.
One of my top mobile pet hates is
- people who text or use their mobile at the table when at a restaurant for a meal
I will always remember seeing 3 young women sitting side by side in a sushi restaurant texting each other instead of talking to each other !
Some young people do not understand why you would talk to a stranger sitting next to you on the bus.
They think this is weird behaviour !
I am one of those people who have mainly the apps my mobile came with.
I would rather be in my garden, take my dogs for a walk, go to the beach, walk in the bush, spend time actually f2f talking to my friends and family.
I try not to think about what life will be like in the next 20 years !01/09/2017 #2 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisI agree that there are far more apps than necessary (esp. on the Android platform). However, getting distracted by them is a matter of choice. Not an easy choice, but a choice nevertheless. If someone doesn't have the mental discipline to keep his mind focused or in a state of attention, then he is going to get distracted by a million things, not just his phone. The latter is just the lowest hanging fruit, not the culprit. I have a bunch of apps on my phone, but I mainly use a handful of them. E.g. when I drink my coffee / tea in the morning, I often open up Pocket to read some interesting article. Whenever I want to take a break, I open up beBee and check out articles like this. And when I'm on the train / bus, I play a nice strategy game, or listen to music. These 4 apps (incl. the music player) account for 90% of all my app usage. Could I do without them? Probably. But then I'll have to carry a book with me at all times, as well as printouts of beBee articles, and an MP3 player for my commute. I doubt that option would be worth it.01/09/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI am honored to have a mention in this superb buzz @Geoff Hudson-Searle. I believe the Law of Large Numbers shall be in operation. With such a huge number of apps being "born" everyday, 20% of them shall survive and few only shall capture the hearts and be used.
With such an overflow of apps people will tend to discard many new apps or neglect them because they don't want to spend lots of times learning how to use them and not mastering them.
That new technologies shall emerge to control the floods of new apps is bound to happen. Our capacity for more apps may have reached its capacity.
Shared your worthy buzz. Geoff.

GrinbergMany thanks for sharing your important insights on this timely topic, I appreciate your valuable feedback (as always) @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador @Ian Weinberg @Jan 🐝 Barbosa @Maite Barroso Del Cerro.
I likewise agree that the most prudent option is to proceed with due diligence and cautious optimism. This is because any new and evolving technology carries with it inherent risks, as well as potential rewards. AI has it's positives and negatives. However, there appears to be disagreement about whether the negatives outweigh the positives, or vice versa at this fluid point in time.
Ultimately, the key is to maximize the positive and minimize the negative. Thus, by this standard I believe Elon Musk and those who share his views are taking the correct approach. It's better to move forward incrementally with baby steps than to inadvertently run off a steep cliff due to overzealous speeding.
Any thoughts on this topic @Javier 🐝 beBee?26/07/2017 #6 Maite Barroso Del CerroI agree with Musk that technology can have serious risks, Europe has already discussed the need for robots to have a "death button". http://www.elespanol.com/ciencia/tecnologia/20170112/185482258_0.html26/07/2017 #3 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador#2 wisdom has a home...beBee, Thanks ian!

He's already shown himself to be committed to big data for financial gain at the expense of the individual human element. Musk on the other hand has shown his sensitivity for environmental and human issues. At the end of the day we need to re-connect with our humaness and integrate AI at this level. In this regard I trust Musk's cautionary over Zuckerberg's drive to subordinating humanity to big data and the buck.26/07/2017 #1 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorGood article, good debate but before, anyone should watch the Circle's Movie with Tom Hanks....Musk is prudent and a visionary while Zucky just leveraging the $$ he makes with 2 Bn of O.P.M units. give a budget to a bunch of Dr Oz and geeks and ask for a miracle.

It has always been with us. The difference in today's world is twofold: the pace and the number of areas included. Still it is change and most humans actually adapt well to it...when they think about it. So this article is apropos.

Even if you are left unharmed by what happens, chances are that your vendors or your clients will not be unaffected, leading to a new set of dynamics for your business processes. Perhaps this needs to be incorporated in the SWOT analysis too.
Even if machines may not require someone to maintain them, they will require someone to program them and debug them when they screw up. So, some A.I. knowledge may go a long way, in the years to come. So, things may not be that bad after all...24/07/2017 #12 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador#10 It is coming @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess and it's important to keep up as best as we can. I remember what a big deal it was for my grand parents when they would no longer receive a check from social security and just had to trust the money would appear in the bank account. I am sure we will all struggle with adapting at some time in our lives.24/07/2017 #10 Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar GoddessYes, @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador, the future is indeed coming. It's always been coming, but year after year, this old Boomer Broad has seen it coming faster and faster. I think that's what it's all about, at least for a lot of us. We barely have time to learn THIS because THIS++ and THAT+++ are just around the corner!
The other issue to me is awareness. When I was growing up in the '50s, news came in print and on TV, with the likes of Walter Cronkite and other giants of the early TV eras. The hysteria wasn't as easy to find; a speaker's words weren't spread before they'd even finished speaking as they can be now with Tweets.
All these changes feel strong, harsher, harder -- more emotional -- because we aren't getting much time to digest them, live with them, learn from them before the next wave hits. And the news about them is everywhere; there's no escaping it even if we want to (unless we unplug and go live in a remote place -- are there still any left?).
So I appreciate you always keeping us updated on the facts and how we need to consider our own tomorrows that will surely look different from anything we've known before.24/07/2017 #7 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador#4 You are spot on @Harvey Lloyd. It's all about how it will impact the economy of one. For some it there will a direct impact of a job loss, others will get jobs that didn't exist before. The big one to watch for is one something comes sideways and destroys the company you work for or weakens it. Will Tesla make enough of a dent in car sales to close a major brand, for example.24/07/2017 #4 Harvey LloydYou are an economy of one. Many years ago i heard this statement and it stuck. Your strategies of success must meet your needs within your economy.
In this days it was customary to get the gold watch after many years of service.
I dont think things have changed much economically when considering an economy of one.
AI is disruptive not necessarily at the economy of one level but rather at the basic economic level. Machines, software or VR do not pay taxes, join the community nor do they delineate right and wrong. The motivation for AI has grown from bad economic policy and consumerism.
We are creating a class of people who are left behind. I sense this is different than past revolutions of economy. In the past the government was not so deeply imbedded with the way of life, economically. People and the government understood the concept of the economy of one.
I am not against AI nor afraid of its growth, but this transition will fail if the consumer dies along the way.

Comments18/07/2017 #9 Nicole ChardenetThere's a more hopeful take on the future of AI by an AI engineer who had to face a life-threatening lymphoma to realize what was really important in his life...love and his family, which a robot simply can't comprehend. It was in Wired Magazine's newsletter this morning.
Michio Kaku makes a good case against AI going all HAL 9000 on us in his book "The Future of the Mind". Anyone else get into neuroscience at all? I wonder if it may be almost impossible for AI/robots to completely replace us...or take over the world...because maybe there's an element to our 'wetware' that may never be replicated in AI. Hell, scientists can't even agree on what 'consciousness' is or define it to everyone's agreement, As Wired's cancer survivor points out, if the human had beaten AlphaGO he would have felt a wild range of emotions and pride; the computer beat him and didn't care. Deep Blue beat Kasparov and it didn't care either; Kasparov was deeply affected by losing and would have been deeply affected had he beaten it. I'm also not convinced robots & AI will ever replace *all* jobs, or at least as many as predicted, because I've been hearing the predictions since I was in high school (over 35 years ago now) of how they're going to do all the work and we'll live lives of leisure. Hasn't happened yet and *still* no one can answer the question I had when I was 18 or 19: "And how are we going to live these lives of leisure if we're not getting paid anything? How will that economy work?"16/07/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergGreat share, Vincenzo, on the fast evolving emergence of AI. This is a fascinating topic and is just the proverbial "tip of the iceberg" for what we can expect in the years and decades ahead when AI is fully integrated into almost all aspects of society. It will be a brave new world indeed once AI is merged with robotics, quantum computing, more powerful machine learning, and newer versions of the Cloud.

It is true that technology is very useful and all development is in a way designed to improve our quality of life, but we also run the risk of technology molding us as a society and not the opposite. It is interesting that in societies begin to consider this debate, not to create constraint but to seek to develop the best methods for these technologies to be inserted at the best possible level.

Not sure how I feel about this. Technology is great but are we going to go too far as a Society and also become even less social than we are already becoming? Thanks for this, interesting none the less!

Comments08/04/2017 #59 Ian WeinbergNever fear @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee Technology will never replace the human brain nor this thing called 'consciousness' Technology may enhance the linear, data aspects, some of the reasoning capability and provide algorithms to diminish destructive/limiting beliefs, but it is unlikely to ever replicate the creativity, sensitivity, emotions and awe of our right hemispheres. See a previous buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ian-weinberg/the-mushy-brain-mystery08/04/2017 #58 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeIn my work with the senses, I sense we are discovering new ways to access intelligence that nurtures our wholeness. So if we have had trauma in life we can apply our whole sensory capacities to healing and re-creating the way we are in the world. So, if AI is becoming more intelligent my wish is that humans also develop our intelligence beyond the current limitations of the logical and the rational.08/04/2017 #57 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @Ian Weinberg do you want this to happen? Or, do you think there is nothing we can do, it is happening anyway? I may be naive, but humans create computers, and a computer can only do what we have inputted surely? Whilst we marvel at how computers synthesise data, humans and all living entities also process and synthesise much data that we are not conscious of. I am curious as I keep reading about AI as if it is going to be better than the intelligence held in the living universe. We are still studying nature, living systems and transferring the incredible intelligence of living systems to computers. So what am I missing - to me it is still the living universe that is the marvel, that has the unlimited capacity for intelligence. Now I think AI is great. I love the way we have moved from computers and machines that were purely mechanical, to now have "living" qualities such as sensory capacities. My hope is that as we keep advancing our knowledge of the intelligence of living systems, we not only apply this knowledge to computers but we apply this knowledge to advance our consciousness and intelligence.01/04/2017 #55 Gerald Hecht#54 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher sometimes they get backed up, other times they come out in a snort along with a bit of a beverage...I am continually trying to balance the "Doshas", "Buddha Laughs", "Fading Cheshire Cats"...for a smoother, more consistent experience --especially with issues that effect the "end user".
Also (as usual) I accidentally inverted the wisdom of the great developmental psychologist -- G. Stanley Hall. It should read:
"Phrenology Recapiulates Proctology"
I had it all Ass-Backwards...which can be disastrous for both Scatological Philosophers and Machine Learning Algorithm Coders, not to mention Internet Connected Smart/"Self-Driving Water Closets...and the end users of those types of hardware associated with the "Internet of Things".01/04/2017 #52 Gerald Hecht#50 @mark blevins what if its a "smart bullet"...and it gets stuck; this is the kind of thing we will be up against shortly...it may very well be the kind of thing that we are already dealing with; I also find the metallic taste sticks to the roof of the mouth...for a while --next thing you know its crossed the cribiform plate and activated itself.01/04/2017 #51 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#48 Lol. Whichever end you please! Coming back to it all...that cloud could be likened to, say, the mind collective. Terminology aside, the idea could be that machines would also never be able to read into some collective of their own, Internet being proof of that. They can relay and respond, but never react. Unless programmed. Thanks Doc and Gerry.01/04/2017 #48 Gerald Hecht#47 @Praveen Raj Gullepalli Actually...that last part about the Cloud of Consciousness...I think I see where the leak in the plumbing "self plunger function" is getting blocked --I'm gonna debug a subroutine right quick...I was seeing it all wrong...I think if...let me just leave you with this and get back --its just like G.Stanley Hall famously said: "PROCTOLOGY RECAPITULATES PHRENOLOGY"!!
The problem in the training module is so obvious now; a simple blockage really!31/03/2017 #47 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#43 Doc could it be more a 'load' factor than the 'use' factor that David means? Just like the more sw/apps/programming loaded on an OS the more loaded to perform/ functional a PC/device is? Head trauma creating bad sectors affecting recall and certain functions and so on? But then again there is that Cloud of Consciousness...31/03/2017 #45 Gerald Hecht#40 @Praveen Raj Gullepalli This was actually true...what I don't know is if its been followed up on...there could (I have no idea) be a physiological signal...which 1960's instrumentation was unable to detect.
I will not involve myself in "research" of this type in any case; just won't do it.
I have no doubt however, that someone at DARPA or someplace probably will.
'31/03/2017 #43 Ian Weinberg#11 Hi again @David B. Grinberg I don't know where this thing about humans only using a small part of their brains, originates. What I do know is that using diagnostic modalities such as EEG's, fMRI and PET scans, we see comprehensive activity taking place throughout both hemispheres. How much of this activity is cohesively integrated and monitored at the screen of consciousness at any given moment, is another whole discussion. As regards the replication of human consciousness on memory devices, we need to respect the existence of many components that contribute to this thing called consciousness. Inter alia these include data memory storage, unique subjectivity/algorithms, emotion and then of course the interaction of consciousness with quantum phenomena - 'spooky action at a distance'. At this stage I would suggest that data and algorithms could be feasibly replicated and stored. But the million dollar question is how do we get our hands on the source data since we haven't worked out precisely how the neuronal networks store the bytes of info. I would leave you with a thought analogy to ponder - Is the data actually stored in individual brains or are we mere PC's with basic operating systems and unique frequencies, tapping off cloud-based data bases? We do our integration bit (create subjective 'Word' documents) and send them up to the cloud. Likewise we tap off the cloud for substrate data for further integration.
