Watson's Grandchild Write Poetry?
Erel Shalit, PhD - Israel
We are all witnessing, as well as taking part in the
enormous leaps in the cyber development of our era. We have handed over
the progress of the world to the brilliant minds of tomorrow,
whose bright vision is counterbalanced by apocalyptic fears of the
future. The children and the young of today are born
into tomorrow's world of multiple realities, and a seemingly
boundaryless space of associations and virtuality.
This forces us to reconsider ego-boundaries,
reality-testing, soul and interiority, and to discern the pathologies
of our era, such as 'photographic reality,' and the transient
personality. N.B. Watson in the title refers to IBM's superior
artificial intelligence computer. He (?) can read millions of documents
within seconds, and is a Jeopardy quiz winner, having instant access to
more encyclopedias than most of us know exist.
