Recently I wrote about featuring photos in blog posts, that I have no right to use. This site has been here for ten years. I’ve spent hundreds of hours trying to bring this blog into compliance with the law.
I came across this article, while researching this problem: Google Program Can Automatically Caption Photos. It’s pretty impressive on Google’s part.
It doesn’t matter if people have lifted pictures for two decades. Pretty soon there’ll be nowhere to hide.
There is a lot of talk about “machines taking over”. It’s a dramatic statement but the fact is, my Kindle Fire has a pretty good idea what I am going to type. For example, when a new person come to the site, I welcome them. As soon as I put my cursor in a comment box, the word “Welcome” comes up.
How long do you think it will be before a machine can write in my style?
Continuing on the same theme, Google now endeavors to identify content written by a machine. If you ask me, most content is written by a machine!
For example, recently I searched a news story. I read fifteen versions…they were all essentially the same. Individuals aren’t actually writing this stuff. Pluto in Aquarius – death of the individual, birth of the autotron.
Men are also looking to replace flesh and blood women with machine versions. We’re already half-way there, with men choosing porn over a real-life woman. On the flip side, women have replaced men with dildos…in large numbers.
There is no denying that our workplace is becoming more and more automated. People want $15 an hour to make a hamburger. Meanwhile, the industry is developing a machine to make the hamburger. I expect the machine to win.
I say that because a machine (a plugin) can run through my entire site (blog posts, forum posts and comments) and find every broken link, in about an hour. Can a person do this? Not a chance.
Singers voices are machined.
Actors have been replaced by CGI.
Industry is trying to get rid of the UPS man/woman at this point…delivery by drone.
I fully expect a machine to decide who gets to live and who gets to die, in the near future. Plug your height, weight and DNA into some kind of algorithm. The machine will decide whether you’re worth fixing…or not.
What do you think we’ll see with Pluto in Aquarius?
