Not just Orwell, the five technologies that came into our world directly from the antitopia

Not just Orwell, the five technologies that came into our world directly from the antitopia

I.I. author from "1984"

George Orwell lived in the first half of the 20th century, but his idea of an automatic song-generation device became a reality in the next century. Artificial intelligence is not a "stamp" from an immortal book, but is now able to perform functions related to the production of various works.

And if everyone knows about the DALL·E 2 neurosteam, which generates photo-realistic images, then the ability of algorithms to write music has not yet been appreciated.

For example, to neurize Aiva, which is capable of generating over the summer compositions that are not ashamed to put on the background. Soft rock, neoclassics and any other genres are capable of algorithms easily, and it's only a matter of time before none of the generated tracks lead the charts, because the decisions that can generate music are getting bigger.

People from the test tube.

"A wonderful new world" predicted many of the practices we know today, but if flying cars are no longer perceived as something special, then the deliberate growth of people is still fresh, with only one correction: it's not quite fantastic.

First, there is already an analogy for Butyls to grow, in the face of an artificial uterus created in the United States.

Secondly, even if human cloning has not been resolved, gene editing experiments are more than common, and, yes, if the story of Chinese scientists claiming to have children immune to HIV has raised questions from a number of specialists, the very idea of such intervention is still alive.

So much so that there is more talk about the ethics of creating "prosaner children".

The Oracle Criminalist of the "Dissenting Opinion"

In Philip Dick's cult novel, the struggle for social peace was the prerogative of mutant psychics who predicted the place and time of the crime, and in the real world with mutants, the problems, and the artificial intelligence already on the list are always at hand.

One solution is the science algorithm from the University of Chicago, which has developed a system that can predict when and where crime will occur.

The accuracy of the system is 90 per cent, and the "suggestion" is done a few weeks before the commission of a criminal act.

Superb brain inspired by the "Nuclear Manipulator"

For example, the U.S. Space Force is now starting to use robot dogs to protect objects, and in fact, according to experts, the I.E. robots can completely dislodge people from the battlefield.

"Meditinian" transparency

Eugenia Castleine's cult work "We" offered a vision of a future in which a person's life is so subordinate to society that the idea of transparency was absolute, and if today there is no reason to talk about the mass influx of glass walls in the dwellings, their role is well served by social media, to which users give virtually all information about themselves.

Not only does this lead to a lack of privacy, but it becomes a ground for frankly negative practices, such as stalking. In the US, for example, up to 40 per cent of users face such side effects. If you add regular "plum" databases, personal correspondence, and "plum" videos from surveillance cameras or doorbells, the question that is more transparent — walls or network life — becomes less simple.
