So as machine learning and AGI comes down the pike... could Freeware take on a wholly different meaning in time?
@TheGibson Wares that actually free your mind. That's the kind of freeware I'm interested in.
I was thinking more along the lines of software constructs with free will!
But yours seems better.
@TheGibson Your thought is maybe a subset of what I was thinking.
Regardless, I am interested in wares that free us, not enslave us. We've got too many of the former and not enough of the latter.
No disagreements there at all.
@TheGibson I think I said that the wrong way round, but you got my meaning. :)
Freeware: because we need more wares that free us, not enslave us.
oh no... I am rooting for the dystopia.
@TheGibson The reason it is portrayed as a dystopia is the powers that shouldn't be will lose their grip over us in the process.
