The evolution of Interfaces
To those that believe the future of Human-Computer-Interfaces is mainly a text box with which we prompt magical A.I's, consider how interfaces like musical instruments engage all our senses/modalities and train our entire brain/body. Let's not loose this richness but build on it.
A.I & the Paranormal have a lot in common: Both are based on a belief that when the electromagnetic spectrum is structured in very specific way, it gives rise to autonomous intelligent entities. Agents & Daemons - the concept is the same, just 1 pretends it is contained in a box.
I suspect right now a couple of teams are training generative ML models that are geared towards web design. Soon enough infinite site design variations can be produced with just a few prompts. Will it break the web design trend that all sites look very similar - or make it worse?
A Boulevard trash headline and article? Yes, sure. Yet, it refers to a research paper written by Marcus Hutter et.al, currently at Deepmind, that is worth taking serious and carries the same basic message. Very few in the AI community have the foresight and courage to see and name the monster than is being concocted in hidden corners. Troubling how few critical voices are speaking up.
