In the Future

In the future, computers will be intelligent, but we will still spend decades in school learning to negotiate with them.

So basically, we'll have Microsoft Windows, but the error messages will actually be intelligible.

I’ve been thinking a lot about singularity AI recently, and what it would mean for the future of humanity.  Sometimes I think the world would be a lot better if people could run off solar energy, didn’t need to interact in a physical, spatial universe, and could communicate with each other instantaneously.  So basically, I think we should aim to develop intelligent machines, and then hand the world over to them, effectively making ourselves obsolete.  Kind of like the Elves in Tolkien’s books, who developed all sorts of magic and technology and then handed the world over to the more robust, albeit less beautiful, mortals.
