A COMPUTER
CAN NEVER BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

THEREFORE A COMPUTER MUST NEVER
MAKE A MANAGEMENT DECISION

@elixx Jack Nicholson, who plays a writer in the movie, is just leaving the publisher. The young female receptionist asks Nicholson a question.
Receptionist:

β€œHow do you write women so well?”

Nicholson:

β€œI think of a man and I take away reason and accountability.”

@elixx Well. When there was a train accident a few years ago in Spain, most people were shocked to find out it was still the train diver's decision when to start breaking to make the curve.

@elixx This was before actual working AI approaches...
It is easier now to succumb to the temptation of the latter statement in the picture.

@elixx
As if management was ever hold accountable for anything…

@elixx Never trust a computer that isn't within a few metres of a fire axe.
That probably applies to politicians too.
