I have a new fun piece over at Bloomberg this morning:
Donald Trump is the Singularity
Very good. You are off to a great start!!!! I will miss you on Slate Money.
Trying to hold to my New Year’s resolution I won’t engage in the politics, but I have a grammar question.
Is it really: “an artificial intelligence,” rather than an artificial intelligence [agent | actor | (some other noun)]?
Has usage changed in the last few years?
Surely “intelligence” by itself is a noun.
☞ grabitational singularity
Now, let’s write the DonBot … a twitter responder. Shouldn’t be hard as the triggers are obvious, algorithm trivial, feedback loop doesn’t exist and the vocabulary limited … 🙂
Brilliant! Having “the equivalent of a dynamic neural network running our government” might itself also be a “sign of the times,” which your final sentence obliquely suggests.
