When one has been married for years, or if not married, at least shacking up with the same Homo Sapien for an extended stay, our mates are splendidly aware of future shenanigans we might concoct, and with a fair amount of accuracy, can predict what our mate will be doing on any given day.
Whether it’s neglecting to do the impossible daily deeds that one’s mate hopes they might accomplish during any given day, to doing all the things they hope they won’t – our mates can predict our actions, even our thoughts way before even the spark of an idea occurs to each of us.
But as modernity seeks to eliminate the need, desire or hope that another human being might fulfill our basic needs and hopes to be understood by another human being, one can take comfort that the corporate jokester’s intent to make modern life as depressing as possible have an answer to replace the natural, with the weird and unnatural:
Creepy AI Can Predict Your Moves In Advance – Machine That Anticipates Your Movements in Advance Could Pave the Way for Next-level Big Brother Surveillance. -via dailmail.co.uk
An intelligent machine capable of anticipating your next move minutes in advance sounds like the stuff of nightmares – but is now a reality.
Researchers have taught an AI to recognise patterns in people’s actions, allowing it to accurately predict the next move in a sequence minutes in advance.
The software, which was built by a team at the University of Bonn in Germany, was taught to anticipate actions by watching hours of cooking videos.
Dr Jürgen Gall believes the intelligent software will eventually be able to prophesize your actions ‘hours before they happen’.
Sure, we need more technological busy-body machines intruding in more facets of our everyday.
And why not? The “Honey-do” list can be easily uploaded to the brain of the couch potato or text addict as he/she/it looks down every couple of seconds to their “smart” device to inhale the latest nonsense that has been sent their way. Obey/Consume/Repeat is easily complied with – we’ve been successfully programmed to accept it.
When history has been reduced to what happened a couple of seconds ago, the masses have been trained and easily accept whatever guano comes their way – believing in the “truth” from pieces of metal and wires.
Whether conspiracy theory or not, the brave new world is here. The coldness, programming, thought control and accepting of all approved main stream media horseshit will keep many of the masses continuing to swallow whatever is fed to them each day.
And they will continue to ignore the artists, writers and musicians – living human beings – who dare to speak the truth, with the most of the living dead opting instead for the “truth” from metal and wires, programmed by deranged pyschopath’s.
“Unless we are willing to accept our artists as they are, the answer to the question, “Who speaks for America today?” will have to be: the advertising agencies. They are entirely capable of showing us our unparalleled prosperity and our almost classless society, and no one has ever accused them of not being affirmative. Where the artist is still trusted, he will not be looked to for assurance. Those who believe that art proceeds from a healthy, and not from a diseased, faculty of the mind will take what he shows them as a revelation, not of what we ought to be but of what we are at a given time and under given circumstances; that is , as a limited revelation but revelation nevertheless.” ― Flannery O’Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

Ugh, this is SO creepy! Just when I thought AI couldn’t get any worse… we definitely don’t need this!
