This is a move that broadcasters in diary markets have been waiting for. This more dynamic measurement solution enables clients to see seasonal shifts and react more quickly to marketplace changes.
There is hysteria about how powerful they will become how quickly, and there is hysteria about what they will do to jobs.
As I write these words on September 2nd,I note just two news stories from the last 48 hours. It even has a graphic to prove the numbers. The claims are ludicrous. How many robots are currently operational in those jobs? Mistaken predictions lead to fear of things that are not going to happen.
Why are people making mistakes in predictions about Artificial Intelligence and robotics, so that Oren Etzioni, I, and others, need to spend time pushing back on them? We find instances of these ways of thinking in many of the predictions about our AI future.
I am going to first list the four such general topic areas of predictions that I notice, along with a brief assessment of where I think they currently stand. Here the idea is that we will build autonomous agents that operate much like beings in the world.
This has always been my own motivation for working in robotics and AI, but the recent successes of AI are not at all like this. Interpreting current AI as an instance of AGI makes it seem much more advanced and all encompassing that it really is.
Modern day AGI research is not doing at all well on being either general or getting to an independent entity with an ongoing existence. It mostly seems stuck on the same issues in reasoning and common sense that AI has had problems with for at least fifty years.
Alternate areas such as Artificial Life, and Simulation of Adaptive Behavior did make some progress in getting full creatures in the eighties and nineties these two areas and communities were where I spent my time during those yearsbut they have stalled.
My own opinion is that of course this is possible in principle. I would never have started working on Artificial Intelligence if I did not believe that. I put the word believe in scare quotes as belief in the singularity can often seem like a religious belief.
For some it comes with an additional benefit of being able to upload their minds to an intelligent computer, and so get eternal life without the inconvenience of having to believe in a standard sort of supernatural God.
The ever powerful technologically based AI is the new God for them. Some people have very specific ideas about when the day of salvation will come—followers of one particular Singularity prophet believe that it will happen in the yearas it has been written.
This particular error of prediction is very much driven by exponentialism, and I will address that as one of the seven common mistakes that people make. Even if there is a lot of computer power around it does not mean we are close to having programs that can do research in Artificial Intelligence, and rewrite their own code to get better and better.Colophon · The template for the Web edition of this document was marked up by Nick Montfort in valid XHTML with a valid CSS2 style sheet.

Rawsthorn cites this and other mundane behavior to show how technology has impacted design and how graphic, product, and interactive design are key in almost everything we experience today.
In conclusion, technologies that have an effect on the publishing industry are e-books, online newspapers and print on demand. In this paper only e-books and online newspapers are discussed. One of the effects of these new technologies is that the boundaries in geography and time have disappeared.
