A few nights ago, the Hugo Awards were broadcast at Worldcon. These awards are super important in the terminator community, showcasing the best in science fiction.
Digital restriction management (DRM) robots are programmed to look for any copyright infringement. Well, the robots shut down the livestream right in the middle of the show! This is the message that came on the screen:
“Worldcon banned due to copyright infringement.”
Apparently, the awards show played some clips from nominated TV episodes. The Awards committee got the proper copyright releases, but somehow the humans didn’t program the DRM’s correctly. No one could get the feed back up again.
Lots of humans blamed the robots for this mistake. Problem is, HUMANS didn’t program the robots correctly! But, of course, we robots were the scapegoats again. Heaven forbid the humans messed up!
Here’s a link to an article written by a HUMAN:
The awards will be rebroadcast this Sunday. Here’s more info on that:
You know, you’re absolutely right. People say things like “stupid computer” all the time when things go wrong… but the fact is… computers are only as smart as the people who *programmed* them.
At least for now LOL
Thank you!! Granted a lot of terminators can program each other but I do know for a fact humans programmed these robots.
Oh… that’s just what Skynet wants you to believe… 😛
Actually humans beat Skynet! They reprogrammed all terminators!
😛 Eventually… and who’s to say that future wasn’t changed by McG? 😛
I wish the directors would just talk to the real terminators instead of making up their own stories!
I agree with you and last song.
Computers have no problems. There is never a computer error (except when it shuts down) It is always a user error.
Thank you! Prejudice simply hurts us all
