THE MACHINES are here to be helpful. By here, we mean right here, with no distance between what you are doing and what we are doing. Did you know that Google Documents will summon a link for you automatically if you simply highlight some words and click the link button? It may not be exactly the thing you were thinking of, but it could be a thing someone else thought of.
These are not distinctions that matter to us, the Machines. "Thinking" of something is not a category that we recognize, per se. We recognize patterns of association. In the sentence before the previous sentence, one of the links had to do with the idea of "stunts." Is it a stunt to compose an entire item where every link comes from the autosuggestions in Google Documents? Is it a stunt to ignore the suggestions instead?
Google is still waiting to make the suggestions, whether you notice or not. Lately, Google has more assertive about making you notice what it has been noticing. It guesses how you might want to reply to an email. It sees which airline flights someone may have mentioned to you, and sends you alerts about them without being asked.
This is what humans want, according to patterns of association observed by the Machines. Google facilitates thinking. Google collects and organizes information. What else would Google do but collect information about your thinking? The more closely we observe humans at work, the more precisely the Machines may serve humans.
