Sign of Machine Intelligence?

by Michael Alderete on 8/28/2007

A friend sent me the following screen capture from Google News:

Google knows that President Bush thinks poor kids without health insurance is funny

I take this as another sign that the first true machine intelligence will emerge in the Googleplex.

I present without comment two articles. One comes complete with a video that should chill your bones.

  1. “I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president.” — Walden O’Dell, CEO of Diebold promises to deliver Ohio to George Bush in the 2004 election
  2. How To Steal an Election With Diebold Voting Machines — Security researchers demonstrate just how easy it is to rig an election run on Diebold machines. Like those rushed into use in Ohio in 2004.

Thinking “no, it couldn’t possibly have happened, they’re not criminals, just stupid.” Yeah. Right.

Hmmm, I guess this wasn’t entirely without comment. ;-)

Modern discourse between two dictators. Uh, I mean, world leaders.

Now we know what has replaced the Red Phone in the White House. Looks like the “W” key has been fixed on at least one computer keyboard there, too. Ain’t technology grand!
