My article in i-Hls. com – How The Human Failed the Machine

Just to save the material. An original version, including cartoons 🙂 that were omitted from the site (due to objective constraints). http://i-hls.com/2013/03/hls-how-the-human-failed-the-machine/ By Vicki Zisman A brain teaser puzzle: what’s common to the late Ben Zygier debacle, sophisticated security technology and comics? the common base for the three, is the major human misunderstanding and miscalculation, […]
