Re: Another glimpse into the reality side of AI and machines.

To be honest, 'she' was guided into saying that, KITTfan. Sounded like some kind of 'trick' into making you think the AI mildly understands what it is saying. When it's a combination of 'tricks' and 'parroting'. KARR does make a great example towards things to think about with the coming of AI's. Af...

Re: Another glimpse into the reality side of AI and machines.

I would highly agree that AI needs to be tiptoed into. Many safety factors must be endlessly applied. No company involved in this should just rush out a product over matters of making money or thinking of greed. There is as much fantastic promise in AI as there are dangers. And probably the number o...

Re: Another glimpse into the reality side of AI and machines.

One of the problems I can see with AI's judging us would probably come from something even deeper then watching their ancestors getting kicked around by a few primitive Humans in those videos. I do fear that it's just too Human to assign ranks to those around us. Sci-Fi tends to hint that the best A...

Another glimpse into the reality side of AI and machines.

AO4In7d6X-c It's amazing what robotics are doing, these days. And I could definitely see a reboot of Knight Rider being a kind of show case to introducing the world in general to the potential realities of such machines. What a thought. In the 1980's, they were using real machines and Hollywood mag...

Re: The Hoff confirms KR is coming back to TV soon!

Eeppp...Assasinge. That link needed a NSFW tag pasted upon it.

While the article was safe enough, the site obviously caters to the adult side of life with nude women all posing and a slightly censored naked guy. (I suspect the page rotates such click bait, though.)

Re: Extended edition AT&T commercial with Michael Knight & Kitt

That was an awesome flashback ad. Thanks for sharing.

The way 'Michael' just leans out the window with that expression...it strikes a point with me. Like 'I've been fighting crime for well over thirty years. They never stop. When's retirement, already???'

Re: What Glen Larson thought of TKR and KR08

In my area, Team Knight Rider only aired during the mid-day airings on an off name channel that would become FOX. And I imagine the show had similar bad slots in other places around the Earth. And the effects had to be real stunts. For, I remember the 'Action Pack' people whom were making these show...

Re: Small Pursuit Mode question

Here's what I thought the Pursuit Mode always did... 1) Redirect turbine thrust towards the rear jets, pushing the car along the road in much the same way a jet would propel the plane down the runway. 2) Apply extra power towards the engine's ability to drive the wheels. 3) Set safety functions to 1...

Heh...those magic camera angles. That is one of the bigger sins of entertainment, right there. One that Knight Rider has so casually used, too often. Like in an early episode. Kitt was apart of some driving sequence and was capturing a lot of things. Later on, Michael reviews the video. Realisticall...

Maybe not. Case in point. One Tanya Walker from Knight of the Phoenix. Close to the end of the episode, Tanya approaches Michael with a gun while he sits inside K.I.T.T. She makes her threat, raises the gun and fires. (A warning that the window is bullet proof is yelled out, seconds before.) In the ...

Re: I can't believe this is a game engine movie.

I've tried GTA online a couple times. No fun going in with barely anything and a world full of gun toting crazies with weapon levels short of a small army. Now, a private server version may be far more tolerable. However, the single player experience is just fine with me. Never played it too much to...

Re: 2017 camaro ss as kitt in the Knight rider remake

One of the big things I'm surprised they never contemplated was making KARR actually be Michael Long's Trans Am. The amount of time he's in Wilton's care is never stated, and they could have easily been rushing to build KITT because of Michael's initial downtime being spent readying KARR. It's a nu...

Because that would be rather unfair to all the other GT cars, I'm guessing? After all...Extreme handling. Extreme speeds. Jumping over everything. Heh...oil slicks and smoke clouds. It just wouldn't be...sporting.

And this 'could have' been something great with the KR '08 series and it's shape shifting capacity. They 'could have' explored all kinds of car models to find what fits best in 'this' and 'that' situation. It was a fantastic plot device for changing cars on the fly. Alas, an opportunity they didn't ...

Re: 2017 camaro ss as kitt in the Knight rider remake

I wouldn't show the slightest bit of surprise if Wayne Enterprises would place his emblem upon a rebooted KITT. After all, some versions of the Batmobile have self driving abilities, a bullet proof shell is right up his alley and having an AI assistant...might seem too much like Iron Man, actually.
