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?

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. :)
