“A robot hand developed by the University of Tokyo’s Ishikawa Oku Lab is reportedly so adept at the game rock, paper, scissors that it is unbeatable against a human opponent.”
I remember when a computer beat chess champ Gary Kasparov. I told myself, maybe Kasparov had an off day, too much of a good night beforehand. Something. Anything. But to admit a machine had defeated the best humans could offer in a contest of mental acuity was unfathomable. So I dismissed what it might mean.
I believe our time of reckoning has arrived.
Now that the supreme decision making method of all time has been conquered by a machine, it won’t be long until they have a representative in congress and then…the end.
It’s been nice knowing you, fellow human.
