While humans are in control of the confines within which robots operate, there is hope for humanity. But, I shudder to think what will happen when we humans no longer control the boundaries in which robots operate.
When you bring up an issue to your boss, he listens & right from the first line you see a bad surprise on his face that conveys, he's completely unaware of the whole thing. Without acknowledging any of it, he waits till 90% is over & then says "Now you are talking" as if I brought up a great insight exactly @ 90:00 on the slider. And the rest of it- he's already aware. Which is TRULY not. I totally dislike the lack of honesty in simple conversations. damn, these old corporate lions.
I first of all, dislike these outdated phrases like "Now you are talking" But still better than the boss trying to pick phrases from newer movies & put them to use just to show he's still young and kicking.
When something happens like this, I imagine a 7 feet huge retired bear trying to speak in cute little teddies voice and be among them. Many times he ends up being the Elephant in the room. Oh wait, that's yet another over used idiom in our daily language.
