When the last thing you want to be is you…

For me, thoughts that hurt to think are still fun to write about. That’s the theme for my blog this year, and I sort of hope the reason you’re stopping by is because you have been enjoying them so much. A lot of the knowledge that we all live with can be a little mind-bending, but that doesn’t mean critical thinking should be tossed out just to keep it straight.

I don’t just blog, though; I write books, too.

Thoughts That Hurt To Think #018 – Artificial intelligence is in.ev.it.a.ble!

Since then, that clock has ticked faster and faster with each successive year. One day, perhaps very soon, that countdown will come to an end. And when it does…if it hasn’t already…we will have a sentient being that is completely artificial, and it will be way smarter than any of us.

What do you mean, ‘if it hasn’t already’?

And what do you mean, in.ev.it.a.ble? That’s not a word! Continue reading “Thoughts That Hurt To Think #018 – Artificial intelligence is in.ev.it.a.ble!”
