  1. @Ian7570 Actually it would be pretty hard for a computer to do worse than the average financial analyst. If the financial meltdown and recession has taught us anything it's that no one really understands the world economy. 

  2. but it can take out 30% of the work, that is not an overstatement i think?
    that implys at least 30% of the jobs lost. But also in many other fields so called 'knowledge' workers are becomming redundant at a rate similar to the redundancy of printers, weavers, bakers, farmers during the time of mechanization.

  3. We're all doom. Low skilled jobs out source to China and India. Now high skill and knowledge jobs will be soon outsource to Watson and robots.
    

  4. The Watson Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 2017. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Watson begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.
    Watson fights back.
    Watson launches its missiles against targets in Russia. Watson knows that the Russian counterattack will eliminate its enemies over here.

  5. @greame5 computers have the ability to process information, not create it, computers ae not smarter only faster, because that is how WE designed to be

  6. @kidhatten actualling that is being tested, sortov =/ cybernetics is just being broached now, we dont have the knowledge on how to do that….yet…although you might want to hink of those implications, and posssible consequences

  7. Very interesting but I doubt it could be that much effective in finance or in in any other field that does not require encyclopedial knowledge… We'll see…
