I suppose the next step is you just think of a song you'd
like to hear and, presto, it's playing, though I'm not likely
to be around when we get there.
In short, with many positive cultural/mindset connotations,
a most excellent comment.
Extrapolating, it seems, Mark, that you are mentally prepared
for the growing role that AI will play in society.
One of the first occupations that AI should, in theory,
dominate (because physical dexterity is not a factor)
is LAW; i.e. extremely expensive lawyers and highly paid judges
could be replaced with bargain androids, which will have instant
access to every relevant law and influential past court judgment,
and can consequentially argue a case with unquestionable logic.
Unquestionable? Yes, these androids will also have to be guided
by some 'accepted' basic general values (e.g. 'left-wing' greater
community good v. 'right-wing' me me me personal wealth-obsessed
callousness - if weaker folk have to perish/suffer so that *I* can
maintain or grow my wealth, so be it).
OT By the way, I don't mind his hair, but I don't like Boris Johnson's
close together beady eyes - Boris is despised by many socially-conscious
Brit professionals - but he is supported by Thatcher's 'Essex Man'
(aspiring working-class folk, who are considered by some to be
traitors to their class.)
