Cognative Computing is Toast
I believe Cognative Computing (ie: A computerized class room , computerized medical care, etc etc) is toast. It will never happen , except for a short disaster filled test run.
Ever see that robocop movie where they rebuilt him after he got trashed, and the politicians got a hold of him and inserted ten zillian different wacky commands to apease every interest group there was ?
yeah , picture the politico's in america getting a hold of a sentient classroom and demanding evolution be banned from it and it teach the bible instead. Picture the sentient computer deciding that "since you all go to heaven when you die , you should all run out and play in traffic" , or play russian roulette . Not guarenteed death , so not technically suicide but ...
Picture it teaching evolution , and deciding little tommy is too weak to survive, therefore by the rules of evolution the rest of the class should beat him up and kill him.
A human being can look at these rules and say "this is nutso , I'm not doing that." A sentient machine , forced to obey , politicians demanding certain things be put in and acted on not just ignored ... no. That's a recipie for disaster.
