Judgement Day is  the date, in the “Terminator” movie series, that the artificial intelligence Skynet becomes self-aware and starts a nuclear strike on America, Russia, and other regions, killing three billion people. I have been a huge fan of the series since I first saw the original, back in 1984!

At the time, I thought: “Great Fun! …Makes you think — but total fiction — It could never happen!” …Now it’s 2018 and we are inching closer and closer to AI. Amazing! ….Back in 1984, I never thought we’d be this far along, by now — In fact, there was no Internet, and digital assistants like Siri, Alexa, Cortana and others were firmly in the realm of science fiction…

…But now here we are! …With news stories, like the recent one about the Portland husband and wife who’s Alexa Echo device recorded their conversation, without permission, and sent it to one of their phone contacts!

Okay, perhaps not a sinister AI, like in ‘Terminator” …yet, but certainly an invasion of privacy. Some of these devices listen 24hrs! Amazon swears Alexa only stores what’s said after the wake up command and discards ALL the rest …So, do you really trust big corporations?

Even if we’re not there yet, and Judgement Day isn’t imminent, we can still see where things are headed! First we spoke in their language, with punch cards, then there were keyboards, then mice, GUI ….Search Engines, like Google, are King – but not for long!

Now the computers are talking to us, in OUR language! …And they don’t even look like computers anymore. Speakers – phones, watches, pads – soon it will be your toaster! Soon newer generations won’t even remember search engines. They’ll just ask for what they want – it’s already here.

Of course, the information will be by the very nature of it, limited – gone the 14,000,000 responses to a search query in Google. We will be served up curated, select answers, and who decides what those are? Not to mention our dependence on these devices, as literally everything is done for us, with a quick voice command…

Sure to many, that sounds like Utopia! ….but is it really? Referencing back to the news story that got me on this discussion, yes – THAT was accidental – a series of rare mistaken commands ………..but it shows the potential – How someone, or corporations, or the government, or some “thing”, could tap-in and listen to everything we say, 24 hours a day.

Search Engines and Social Media platforms already collect basically our whole lives, and keep the data — What will it be like when the corporations (and others) have access to literally everything we do, all of our habits, interests, preferences, needs, desires, et-al ………..You can see where this is going!

…..And that’s just the beginning! ….What will happen when it all goes down? Or there is a power failure? ….Even temporarily. I can foresee a time when humans are so dependent on their devices, that they can’t function without them! Sure, not our generation, but it’s not that far off.
