"Computers are rocks we tricked into thinking" is entirely incorrect. Computers are rocks we tricked ourselves into believing they could think

"Computers are bad" equally entirely unjust. Computers are good and people who use them are bad

@ionchy sorry for the double boost but this post is 200% correct

@ionchy they **could** think, but it's just that: we don't actually bother helping them do that

@ionchy computers are just a way to outsource our thinking to our past selves


Good one. "AI" said marketing; "if-else", said development.

@ionchy No computer are bad because bad people designed them badly. The silicon was probably good.
