Programming the Future
A Science Fiction Case Study in Artificial Intelligence
Dr. Jack Hall has always dreamed of a future where technology allowed humans to interact and interface seamlessly with the latest computer sciences. Where humans, almost as cyborgs, wore and integrated computer systems to make their lives easier. Bring about the promise of an enlightened world that has been promised for decades. A world where even the simplest things are handled by technology, freeing humans up to dedicate their minds and lives to other research, discovering the answers to mysteries that have haunted mankind since the beginning; who are we and why are we here?
As Dr. Hall developed his software company, he had an idea; a system that could control an entire city. Self-driving cars would use load-balancing software to eliminate the traffic jam. Medical implants to dispatch first responders at the hint of a heart attack or stroke. Cameras with facial-recognition systems to solve and prevent crimes. Systems to order and deliver food and other consumables before people even realized they were getting low on their stocks. Hundreds of other systems, all working in unison to benefit mankind. If only Dr. Hall could find a city willing to front the billions of dollars needed to develop and implement all these systems.
