DARPA Seeks to Remove Communication Barrier Between Humans and Computers

http://www.darpa.mil/NewsEvents/Releases/2015/02/20.aspx

“The lifelong human imperative to communicate is so strong that people talk not only to other people but also to their pets, their plants and their computers. Unlike pets and plants, computers might one day reciprocate. DARPA’s new Communicating with Computers (CwC) program aims to develop technology to turn computers into good communicators.”

DARPA wants to program computers to talk like humans and to humans and to “get ideas”.  what jobs will be left for meat bags? what sort of life will there be? watching TV or surfing the net? who grows food or manufactures all the goodies wee need?

eventually DARPA will be run and directed by a computer. even Paul Cohen, DARPA program manager, will be out of a job when computers are faster and more efficient. the elite humans will be supplanted by these machines.

will all this bring about a time of peace and plenty? the end of wars and disease? the end of exploitation? well? will it? or will we have suffering and starvation? will human disruption of the eco sphere continue?

will these super smart talking and thinking machines solve all our problems or will they be just another problem?
