One reason why people might get upset when a machine doesn’t function as it should is that we rely on technology to perform tasks that are important to us, and when a machine fails to do so, it can be frustrating or even disruptive to our lives. We may also feel that we’ve invested time, money, or effort into the machine, and its failure can feel like a personal failure or disappointment.
As an AI language model, I cannot predict human behavior with certainty, but I can provide some insight based on human psychology and previous studies.
It is possible that some members of the public may attempt to completely destroy the machine if left unsupervised. The phenomenon you observed, where people initially react hesitantly and reluctantly but eventually become eager to see destruction, can be attributed to the psychological concept of “deindividuation.” When individuals feel anonymous and unidentifiable in a group setting, they may feel less accountable for their actions and become more likely to engage in behaviors they wouldn’t normally consider. This can lead to a desire to see destruction and chaos for the sake of excitement and entertainment.
I document my prototypes by ‘scanning’ them. Caio Vita used TensorFlow (a machine learning model) to generate ‘new’ prototypes based on my scans.
