Re: Cold and Heartless Data
So speaking of the World Cup, last night we had the first major controversy of the World Cup. Brazil was granted a penalty on a flop. 

Can anyone imagine a computer reacting to that? Would it send angry texts? Send out little puffs of steam?

@technocrati- Don't worry. I'm your Sith Lord and you are my apprentice. As long as you serve the dark side, you are fine.

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
@Pedro- I think it would too, though it would make for some interesting choices. For instance, the way the computer would see a hot streak compared to a person. A human sees a hot streak and thinks "wow, that guy is getting better" or at least "ride the hot hand." A computer might say the player is bound to regress to the mean and he might bench him int he middle of the hot streak. Imagine the howling that would create.

Though I know this--I wish the manager of my softball team was a computer. I'm batting .733 and he keeps dropping me in the linup for people who are terrible. :)

Re: Do we have to worry about that anymore?
I saw the other day that Salesforce is talking about a smart watch to send notifications to employees.  I could see the same being used by a baseball manager, a little chime and the watch shows a pitch count and probability of your starter giving up a few runs this inning so the manager can have a conference on the mound.  Then during that conference the AI can assess the situation and recalculate the odds.
