Insights from a UX-lead at a design agency in Utrecht

This week there is just one thing that resonates with me. Blade Runner 2049. Apart from being a beautiful, slow-paced, visual masterpiece, the general theme of the movie is one that has a clear reference to today’s discussion where this so-called AI revolution is leading humanity. 
Rodney Brooks (former director of the MIT) wrote this great article about predicting where AI is heading. The quote that sums it all up is: 
“We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run.”
So, things are not moving as fast as we hope, but eventually, they are come and overtake us completely. And if they do, what makes us human and different to replicants, and does it even matter?  Addressed in Blade Runner in all different ways explained in this piece.

Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
Within one stem. And, dreadfully distinct
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.
