Podcasts tend to be long form and content rich. They are, in a sense , the opposite of microlearning or the tendency to reduce things benign histiocytoma into small pieces. They also have different cognitive affordances from video, text or graphics. Video is great for ‘showing’ things such as drama, objects, places, processes and procedures with more of an emphasis on attitudinal benign histiocytoma or practical learning. Text may be better for semantic and symbolic knowledge, where the art of the wordsmith comes into play and benign histiocytoma subjects like maths. Graphics, of course can visualise data, show schemas; diagrams can illustrate what you want to teach and photographs benign histiocytoma give a sense of realism. Podcasts, however, tend to deal with more conceptual knowledge, where ideas and discussion matter. They seem better at allowing experts or leaders to explain benign histiocytoma more complex thoughts and issues, where genuine discussion or stories can reveal the learning, with deeper levels of reflection and different perspectives. Relying on spoken language alone often gives them a depth benign histiocytoma that other media don’t carry.

The plot is remarkably similar to the 2015 threesome-with-a-robot movie uncanny (also has an adam) which is somewhat better than this novel. But the real problem is the robot fallacy – the idea that AI is all about robots – it’s not. AI, even robotics, is not all about creating interesting characters for second rate benign histiocytoma novels and films and is not on a quest to benign histiocytoma create anthropoid human robots as some sort of undefined companions. Art likes to think it is, as art needs characterisation and physical entities. AI is mostly bits not atoms, largely invisible and quite difficult to reveal, it is mostly online but that’s difficult for authors and film makers. That’s why the film her was also superior to this benign histiocytoma novel – it doesn’t fall into the idea that it’s all about physical robots. McEwan’s robot and plot limits any real depth of analysis benign histiocytoma as it’s stuck in the mary shelley frankenstein myth, with turing as the gratuitous frankenstein. In fact, it is a simple retelling of that tale, yet another in a long line of dystopian views of benign histiocytoma technology. McEwan compounds the robot fallacy by making adam appear, almost perfectly formed, from nowhere. In reality, AI is a long haul with tons of incremental trials benign histiocytoma and failures. Adam appears as if created by god. Then there’s the confusion of complexity with autonomy. Stephen pinker and others have pointed out the muddle-headed nature of this line of thought in enlightenment now. It is easy to avoid autonomy in the engineering of benign histiocytoma such systems. It tries to introduce some pathos at the end but benign histiocytoma ultimately it’s an old tale not very well told.

The number of young adults with driving licences has fallen benign histiocytoma dramatically, so that over half of american 18-year-olds do not have a driving license. This is partly due to the internet and their alternative benign histiocytoma investment in mobiles, laptops and connectivity. This is good news. I have never, ever driven a car, having lived in cities such as edinburgh, london and now brighton. I’ve never really been stuck, in terms of getting anywhere. I walk, take trains or public transport more than most. This has meant I’ve habitually learnt on the move, largely in what marc auge calls ‘non-places’ – trains, planes, automobiles, buses, hotels, airports, stations. I’m never without a laptop, book or mobile device for learning. Whether it’s text, podcasts or video; m-learning has become my dominant form of informal learning. This has literally given me years of extra time to benign histiocytoma read, write and learn in the isolated and comfortable surroundings of benign histiocytoma buses, trains and planes. I actually look forward to travel, as I know I’ll be able to read and think, even write in peace. Being locked away, uninterrupted in a comfortable environment is exactly what I need benign histiocytoma in terms of attention and reflection. I calculate that over the last 35 years of not benign histiocytoma driving, I’ve given myself pretty much a couple of extra degrees.

More importantly, all my life I have worked in technology, which has delivered much to the world in terms of benign histiocytoma eradicating poverty, mindless labour, disease and hardship. Technology has dematerialised many activities. Mobile comms has replaced atoms with bits take music – we no longer have to listen on vinyl in paper benign histiocytoma sleeves (except for nostalgists) or unrecyclable compact discs, as most music is now streamed and literally has no benign histiocytoma substance.

Newspaper circulation has plummeted and my phone delivered an unlimited benign histiocytoma amount of knowledge and communications that., in the past, would have been infrastructure heavy and hugely wasteful. Paper production is a massive, global polluter on land, water and air. It is the third largest industrial, polluter in north america, the fifth biggest user of energy and uses more water benign histiocytoma per ton of product than any other industry and paper benign histiocytoma in landfill sites accounts for around 35% of all waste by weight. Recycling helps but even the deinking process produces pollutants. Paper production still uses chlorine and chlorine based chemicals and benign histiocytoma dioxins are an almost inevitable part of the paper production benign histiocytoma process. Water pollution is perhaps the worst, as pulp-mill, waste water is oxygen hungry and contains an array of benign histiocytoma harmful chemicals. Harmful gases and greenhouse gases are also emitted. On top of this the web has given us the benign histiocytoma sharing economy, where bikes, cars, rooms and so on can be reused and shared. It would seem as though we’re nearing what ausuble called ‘peak stuff’. This is all good as the best type of energy benign histiocytoma saving is not using energy at all or at least benign histiocytoma minimising the effort and resources needed.
