    The 60 minutes segment on AI

    Watching 60 minutes tonight on the Chinese advancements in AI made me think how the program "Person of Interest" is coming true soon.

    The mention of 40% of today's jobs being automated in the next few years should be an eye-opener. But the main guy interviewed I right that it isn't yet intelligence like a human brain. We should worry if the day comes that an AI asks "why am I doing this" or states"I don't care what you want, it serves me o purpose".

    "What's my motivation?"

    Azimov comes to mind.

    If it can be automated, it will be automated. Witness the all-of-a-sudden self-serve kiosks at Mickey D's and others after the push for minimum wage increases. Next will be automated audio ordering at the drive-thru and burger assembly.

    Use your smartphone to order out, the address is already known and a drone shows up with your dinner. Two steps beyond the Chinese delivery in Blade Runner.

    Automobile makers have been using robotics for years. Now we even have car vending machines!

    The inexorable "march of progress".

    What would we do if a net resident AI said, "I don't care about clean air or water, I don't breathe or drink"...

    The way things are going we will never have to leave the basement. Everything will be delivered to the door by robots where your personal assistant will retrieve it for you.

    Humans will only have one big finger for swiping and tapping their device screens (which will of course be build by robots - robots that are constructed by other robots).

    Reminds of a sign I saw recently: "You can't be replaced by a robot if you're retired."
