The Soul in the Machine - Developing for Humans

With Christian Heilmann

Machines vs. Humans

  • machines don’t get tired or make mistake as they fatigue
  • law is boring and machines don’t get bored
  • The future of employement -> company secretaries
  • machines handle grunt work and humans handle human decisions -> the more abstract the less likely you are to be replaced by a computer
  • the more predictable we are as programmers, the more likely we are going to be replaced
  • AI software that makes AI software
  • past being factory workers and finding the way to add value
  • the saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
  • just making money isn’t enough anymore
  • Orwell predicted cameras everyone but didn’t predict we would buy the camera
  • “Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.” -> Aldous Huxley
  • “the power of big data and psychographics”
  • inclusive design set that microsoft released
  • it’s not about allowing access but avoiding barriers
  • spotlight - show me my documents larger than 20 pages
  • netflix -> fast movement can be compressed more than slow movement
  • Aipoly -> identify objects on the phone, not running on the internet
  • facebook open sourced identifying objects
  • AI lip reading for 46% accuracy, humans have 12% accuracy
  • imagenet and open images dataset -> image data sets, properly trained data sets to play with
  • captionbot.ai
