Our vision is that humans can interact with all devices using human language,”  says Li.  “The difference between humans and animals is that humans can use tools.  Over the past 100,000 years, whatever tools you invent you have to learn how to use.   In the future, you won’t need to do that — tools will learn how to understand human language, human intentions.  That’s the future.”

I look at the future from the standpoint of probabilities.  It’s like a branching stream of probabilities, and there are actions that we can take that affect those probabilities or that accelerate one thing or slow down another thing.  I may introduce something new to the probability stream.

The future we have been sold doesn’t work.  Applying the principles of the factory floor to the natural world just doesn’t work.  Farming is more than a business.  Food is more than a commodity.  Land is more than a mineral resource.

(An English farmer’s account of the changes he is seeing)
as quoted by:    Andrew Sullivan
From Sullivan’s opinion piece / article:  “Our President’s Emotional Bait and Switch
Which I found on www.msn.com at:  http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/our-president%e2%80%99s-emotional-bait-and-switch/ar-AAnKTg4
That, in turn referenced the New York Times at:   http://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/01/opinion/an-english-sheep-farmers-view-of-rural-america.html?ref=opinion&_r=0
Sullivan’s article originally appearing in: “Daily Intelligencer
Which is a section under New York Magazine
