Hello Carmella

The following paragraph was Copied and Pasted from you post

I've put a link in here Danny as this is too much to explain, for fear of boring others, but this is my work background, and something I know a lot about - I put the link in for you to go over, merely to say that even way back in time, before we each had computers and mobile phones, and when I did my training at Bletchley Park initially, we were able to communicate all over the world without the internet, and this is still the case, early in my own career by the means of radio and teleprinter.

Thank you for responding to my initial post on this topic. I opened the link you provided. It gives a good insight in to what happens behind the scenes out of the public gaze.

There are not many people who can put Bletchley Park on their CV! Well done.

I have taken a note of the two books Martin mentioned in his post. It is reassuring that there are other people who are concerned about the affect 'Artificial Intelligence' is having on human beings.



I've had a very interesting life Danny, and don't regret any of the work I've ever been involved in. I loved Bletchley Park.

Like you, I've also taken note of the books Martin has mentioned - another wee thing of mine is that I collect books, so will read and add to my collection.

It is possible to fail in many ways...while to succeed is possible only in one way.

Its a long way off though because programs will always be restricted by the programmers ability.

Computers are machines and cannot possess personality, but we can further develop and decomputerise devices to the greater enhancement of our lives.

Kem, I can only see a long, black rectangle. Is something else supposed to be there? Perhaps the rectangle has a deep and hidden meaning? huh.gif
