THE FABRIC OF LIFE is getting smarter every year because our world is cognifying. Kevin Kelly offered this observation more than seven years ago as he started sharing parts of The Inevitable, an essential conversation starter in the Emerging Trends and Technology module on the Clonmel Digital campus.
Today, 2D rigger Jess Cheeseman explains how she has seen cognification affect her life and the lives of her family in Canada.
Today, AI in Teslas and other autonomous vehicles offers a glance at a world safer for all drivers. But as Jessica explains, there are other issues with cognification that mandates careful consideration with respect to the special AIs we are allowing in our lives. Her thoughts are part of episode 38 of Emerging Trends, a podcast you can find on all major audio networks.
Jessica Cheeseman is one of 45 students this spring who have read The Inevitable and are sharing their observations about changes ahead in society. They will share their thoughts during a "Creativity and Technology" public discussion on 24 March in the South Tipperary Arts Centre.
