  15. @stopsatgreen A shallow magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported Monday morning

    five miles from Westwood, California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred at 6:25 a.m. Pacific time at a depth of 5.0 miles.
  16. @stopsatgreen Kitty couldn’t fall asleep for a long time. Her

    nerves were strained as two tight strings, and even a glass of hot wine, that Vronsky made her drink, did not help her. Lying in bed she kept going over and over that monstrous scene at the meadow.

  23. @stopsatgreen –Travis Gertz “The work we produce is repeatable and

    predictable. It panders to a common denominator. We build buckets and templates to hold every kind of content, then move on to the next component of the system. Digital design is a human assembly line.”

  26. @stopsatgreen – Wired “[muScalpel] successfully transplanted a video coding format

    from one media player to another. It took the automated system 26 hours to complete the transplant, while VLC's manual addition of the code happened over a period of 20 days.”
  27. @stopsatgreen – MIT news “Helium is a system that revamps

    and fine- tunes code without ever needing the original source, in a matter of hours or even minutes.”
  28. @stopsatgreen AI can’t do our job, but it can do

    bits of our job.
  29. @stopsatgreen – Travis Gertz “While we’ve been streamlining our processes

    and perfecting our machine-like assembly techniques, others have been watching closely and assembling their own machines. We’ve designed ourselves right into an environment ripe for automation.”

  31. @stopsatgreen – Travis Gertz “We need to be better than

    the machines. It’s time to step up and design with heart.”

  33. @stopsatgreen – Cameron Moll “Mastery of creation and composition is

    much more important than mastery of tools.”
  34. @stopsatgreen – Andrew Ng “We need to enable a lot

    of people to do non- routine, non-repetitive tasks. Teaching innovation and creativity could be one way to get there.”
  35. @stopsatgreen We should welcome the benefits of AI into our

    user experience. This is going to be interesting (read: difficult) for designers.”

  38. @stopsatgreen – Cennydd Bowles “We’ll have to create frameworks /

    scaffolds / templates for AIs to deliver output through. These scaffolds may be sonic, tactile, and linguistic as well as visual.”

  68. @stopsatgreen The real advantage of AI is in conversation.

  69. @stopsatgreen Machine: hi, this is <name> from helpdesk connect, what

    can i help you with today? Human: hi, i forgot my password. can you tell me how i can recover it? Machine: i’ll need to verify who it is at that machine. can we do a hangout? Human: yes Machine: <a hangout ensues> Human: cool, i am good now

  71. @stopsatgreen –Kyle Dent “A conversation is a sequence of turns

    where each utterance follows from what’s already been said and is relevant to the overall interaction. Dialog systems must maintain a context over several turns.”

  82. @stopsatgreen Since 2012 Google’s voice recognition error rate has dropped

    from 26% to 8%.
  83. @stopsatgreen 10% of Baidu search queries are by voice. That’s

    approx. 500m per day.
