Hollywood’s Massive Miss on Strong AI

Feld Thoughts

And it’s pretty amazing for something done in 2002, which was adapted from something Philip K. Dick in 1956 to John Underkoffler in 2000 to Stephen Spielberg in 2002 making a movie about 2054, that lineage makes sense to me. Strong AI has been on my mind a lot lately.

Try On The Decision For 30 Days

Feld Thoughts

Your Wall Is Dingy

Feld Thoughts

Between 1996 and 2002 I was co-chairman of Interliant, a company I co-founded with three other people. As I procrastinate from going for a run this morning, I started writing a post titled The Pro-Rata Gap Myth. After two paragraphs, I got tired of writing it and hit the “ this is b t ” wall – it’s too complicated to explain a myth that I’m not sure even matters.
