Ruk Digest 1/29

Hello Fellow Rukkers!
The futurist adviser to Steven Spielberg's Minority Report gave a truly fascinating TED Talk on Artificial Intelligence. 

My mind has seriously been blown. 

Kelly talks about how our interpretation of our own intelligence is flawed, that "we tend to think that intelligence is a single dimension, that it's kind of like a note that gets louder and louder and that's completely wrong." 

"Intelligence is much more like a symphony of different notes"... a symphony of different kinds of intelligences. 

Intelligence can range from deductive reasoning, emotional intelligence, spatial intelligence..."we have, maybe, 100 different types that are all grouped together."

Kelly then talks about AI, predicting that cars in the future will not only have 250 horsepower, but will also have 250 minds. 

And after hearing that I think that the amount of "minds" in a machine could become an industry metric in the future. 

Kelly also predicts that jobs will eventually become a function of humans and AI working side by side as a team and that you'll be paid "by how well you work with [those] bots."

Skitch Is A Great Screenshotting App

This has been a very useful tool for me.

It allows you to markup your screenshots making it super easy to get your point across. 

Unfortunately it's only available on Apple devices.

 Pics of the Week
Beautiful Hospital Designs

 I firmly believe that the way a hospital looks and feels has a large impact on patients.

The right design should help reduce stress and promote healing.
