Except I didn't have an argument to back with logical reasoning, just an opposition to his. Also I didn't refer to anything at all, but that's just nit picking.
Before I come off as to much of a dick though (too late :cwm27
I should probably explain my post. With the exception of the two sentences where he explains his willingness to be passenger on a pilot-less aircraft, Jpax made some very definitive statements. Never seeing pilot-less aircraft, masses won't accept it, planes doing exactly what they are told, just flying into mountain sides.
I mean how can you say that people will never
trust it. Humans can be conditioned to accept anything as normal. If in the future, a person has known airplanes to be able to fly themselves from when they were young, what reason do they have to think twice about it. Its part of human nature, how often do people find parts of other cultures strange. Yet people that grew up with it don't think twice about because it's just they way things are to them.
How do you know that pilot-less planes on this scale would be implemented without some sort of AI. Never
having pilot-less planes? I just don't see how you can say that without being at the forefront of artificial intelligence or computer and systems research. (Or having a delorean with a flux capacitor) Hence the phrase "you don't know what you are talking about". Not to mention I think we can all agree it wouldn't just be a sudden shift to having no pilots. Also Jpax I'm interested in what you meant by the human vs robot race if you don't mind sharing.
With that said I will concede that my reaction was overly brash for a guy that in the end was just trying to share his opinion.
But hey who am I to say that I know what I'm talking about. I think I started a meme, yay I feel validated.
