Software’s too smart for its own good. If you don’t believe Skynet’s ever going to happen then think of what’s happening now: You text your mother and then realize your smartphone has “corrected” one of your words to something you really, really didn’t want her to see. Think about what could happen with “purse,” “Coke” or… Well, you get the idea.
Or maybe you don’t. In that case, there’s Damn You Auto Correct, a website created as a public service by Jillian Madison, Michelle Madison and Brie Bryant. What have they found? Things like this:
1. The Unintended Consequence
2 . The Lesson on How Mom Perceives You
3. The Ungrateful Date
There’s more, and a whole bunch are NSFW. Of course those are the best ones. But I’d have to label them The Hostile Work Environment, and I’d be having a long and uncomfortable discussion with HR for sure.
