Did I ever tell you guys my crackpot theory about an uncanny valley of interactions? I think there's something really enraging when an automated system mimics social interactions. They come across as incredibly rude and creepy.

Maybe it's because they're mimicking social behaviors, often ordering you around like that robot telling the kids to move out of the way, while at the same time, they're ignoring your social signals.

So what I'm saying is those kids are heroes.

I give some points to the Americans-bot for being an early 80s mail robot working in a federal office. That's a thankless position with low pay and little vertical mobility.

Awesome.

1: They're not "AIs" any more, they're "autonomous golems".

2. Did someone cast Dumination on America and Britain a few years ago?

3. Many of those sound like metal song titles, and not just the several that start "Song of"
... Fall of the Wild
... Wall of Storm
... Revitalising Strike
... Ward of Snade the Pood Beast
... Storm of the gifling
... Icon of Thorns

4. Primal Rear? Curse Clam? :bunnythrust:

From Letters to the editor (The Economist)

Quote:
Concerns about malfunctioning autonomous military systems reminded me of this (probably apocryphal) story from several decades ago. I think it was America’s Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, or its British equivalent, that apparently tested software to find the optimum strategy for the commander of a naval escort shepherding a convoy through waters patrolled by enemy submarines.

When they simulated actual convoys from the second world war they found that the software achieved fewer losses and faster travel times than had actually happened. When they examined the results they realised that in each case the software had dispatched a destroyer to sink the slowest merchant ship, the vessel that had held the convoy back. The logic was faultless, potentially saving more ships and their crews, but is not something that most human commanders would contemplate.
