So I saw Star Wars the Last Jedi, taking no regard to the User Reviews on IMDB.
My love for Star Wars has nothing to do with Princess Leia, Han Solo or Luke Skywalker, handsome though they may be. Not even the Force impresses me. It is the droids that do it for me.
First, it was C3-PO and R2-D2. To save secret information in R2, and make sure that she, yes she, had the sense (emotional intelligence) and understanding to show it only to trusted allies. Help me Obi Wan Kanobi. Okay, fine, I liked Yoda, Chewbacca and the other extraordinary creatures of the Stars. But the droids win every single time.
When C3-PO rambles on about the statistics in his neurotic little
chip head, tries to run away from every single tight spot they get into and understands the hows and whys of being an obedient droid to new owners. Knows when he has been bought, literally. When R2 scans rooms to find ports where he can stick his little fingers and open doors that are otherwise locked, without loosing his playful presence, I swoon. Later came BB-8, who can dance with his head rolling all over him. When someone threw BB-8 down the stairs of Canto Bight, I flinched. Just as I do when I see someone treating another person badly, violently or disrespectfully.
I work in BI – finding, collecting, transforming, structuring and making available the data that AI will be using to make those smart predictive algorithms that improve customer relations, sales and sustainability. However, I am looking forward to becoming a team lead, or #personality-designer for robots, droids, drones, Siri, Alexa who controls or works with Nest, Tesla, John Paul (no relation to John Paul the 2nd), Amazon, Netflix and all the other variants of AI. If AI-agents come with the personalities that were dreamed up, designed and pioneered by #StarWars, among other AI pioneers, I may even switch competence areas and join the AI #PersonalityDesignTeam. To be one of those who are designing and engineering AI that is interesting, diversified and fun to have a coffee with.
New buzz words:
AI PersonalityDesign: The design and refinement of AI personality traits and characteristics with the purpose of adjusting each AI to its role, area of operation and/or branch.
