Pretty amazing times we’re living in. It’s the beginning of the end of a 100 year tradition of people making moving pictures.

We don’t know what the future looks like, but we know it’s going to be way different than it is now.

The only question is, what will you be doing in it?

This is what I’ll be doing, and the purpose of this video is to invite you to join me in a similar kind of operation.

      Great thoughts as always, need more

        Thanks, Brian! We’ll be adding extra shifts down at the idea factory! 🙂

      A reporter commented to a man on his 90th birthday, “You must have seen many changes over the years.”
      “Yup,” he growled, “an d I was against all of them.”
      Whadyathink the old guy would think of AI?

        He would tell it to get off his lawn.

      Very insightful Steve. AI can’t replace our Souls, well not yet anyway. The personal touch is more important than ever.

        Even R2D2 and C3PO were great friends, but they wouldn’t have expected you to let them speak for you unless you were using them as a diversion while trying to escape the clutches of Darth Vader.

      What is being discussed as “AI” isn’t. The Technology has been around many decades. All that has happened now is the computers are smaller and faster. Also, the data-sets are better trained. As “AI” is talked about now is in fact the AI we use for autofocus on cameras. For removing noise on audio tracks and things like that. As for the things you are suggesting for “creating” things are basically what we called “Expert systems” and they have been programmed in languages like Lisp for several decades. For some things electronics and SW is faster and better than humans, however, for many things that require that something, the hairs on the back of your neck, the gut feeling etc AI is very many decades away from that.

        So true. Fly-by-wire was primitive but effective within certain parameters. What we have today is more squishy in terms of what it can really do well, like perhaps your example of autofocusing. And even that it has a fair amount of trouble with.

        It’s coming though, and we need to be prepared to use it without it co-opting us.

      I agree with Chris H, especially after listening to Dr Stuart Hammeroff (a specialist anaesthetist who was in the movie ‘What The Bleep’) on stage several years ago, when he explained the way our brain works is NOT with neurons and ‘lightening’ sparks between the synapses in a binary ‘on-off’ way.

      Each neuron is capable of releasing up to 200 different neurotransmitters, in an almost infinite number of concentrations!

      If we think about touching our nose, then do it, in a process we don’t yet understand, our thought becomes a cascade of chemical neurotransmitters, travelling from neuron to neuron, heading to the brain stem then eventually to our muscles and ligaments … in milliseconds.

      IMHO AI is poorly named and while it can mimic and create, the Soul that’s behind great music, art and writing will be absent for some time to come 🙂

      • Steven Washer

        “For some time to come” is really forever, as there is no process by which a machine could achieve consciousness. Because that’s what we’re really dealing with here. And that’s a beautiful mystery.
