Ask A Genius 491 – What? (1)

January 1, 2019

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: You were mentioning holographic information processing. It has a sort of analog. I do not want to draw a direct connection. In a live conversation, we have a sort of easy communication. That distribution all-around may produce a sort of priming everywhere.

Rick Rosner: I don’t know if you’ve noticed. But I am old and don’t give a shit. I don’t know if Gmail is doing this. Hotmail, when you want to reply, gives different kinds of replies. Somebody says “Hey, I sent these attachments.”

Then you click reply, it says, “Hey! I sent you these three attachments.” It can give a bunch more. The first instance everyone had of this was when the robot has a heads up display within the eyeball. It gives possible responses based on what is being said to him.

Someone says something to him. One response is “fuck off.” It was the 80s when that Terminator movie came out. We are seeing this in our emails now. In conversation, we are able to respond super fast because the brain is predicting what is needed based on the context.

That we’re constantly like a lineman in football before the play begins. They are constantly poised and ready to leap forward into what it thinks is going to happen. We are not usually aware of it.
