The Future is Here: No Bullshit!

Posted in Computer/Semiconductor, Future, Futurist

I don’t know how this news escaped me but earlier this year IBM’s super-powerful computer taught itself how to swear after consuming the Urban Dictionary on slang. (In response to one query, Watson apparently replied, “That’s bullshit!”.)

The computer’s human overseers have since deleted a variety of salty words from Watson’s vocabulary but, from my perspective as a futurist, this is yet another sign of the growing power of computers and algorithms to make sense of the wider world.
