Man Machine Interface

Listening to G’Day World “On The Pod” #57 – Ray Kurzweil: author of, THE SINGULARITY IS NEAR: When Humans Transcend Biology, has the old brain spinning about perceptions of linear vs logarithmic growth and human – machine interfaces.

Here are a couple of man-machine interfaces that surprised me:

Amazon Mechanical Turk
– where people get paid for doing things that computers don’t do as
well as humans. Imagine that – machines driving human labour farms!
Brain Implants for Parkinson’s Disease – so maybe a ‘totally immersive, directly wired, Virtual Reality experience isnt so far away.

I wonder what the LifeKludger will make of all this?
