Yeah, hard to nail down. I suppose you could say those self-driving trucks I wrote about last February in my A2 article Automated Vehicles Tackle the Big Jobs could be one example, because they mimic some (presumably) "intelligent" actions of human drivers ...

I would imagine our smart electric meters on homes and businesses ideally provide lots of cool information for the utility company yet remain mostly invisibile to most customers. And just how the data is put to use to not be to customers' disadvantage but yet provide insights into better efficiencies for the company is up to legitimate questions. Will the data help efficiency or provide ways to charge extra for customer electrical use and demand?

Sure, here's an example I ran across earlier this year of IoT done right (in my opinion)

To the customer, it's invisible but to the manufacturer it provides invaluable data without adding layers of complexity.

@ SaneIT.  Re:  "Technologies that become invisible to us will be the ones that have the most impact not the ones that sit on top of another technology that we dislike in order to make it a little more tolerable. "

Do you have any examples?  I know it's already an issue with new systems that are reliant on archaic systems that no one knows how to program or make changes to.

@ rbaz, I don't think I would trust an A.I. to tell me to keep going because the light was going to go green.  It may be right but that doesn't prevent all the other cars who are speeding to get through the yellow light. 

It would only work if everyone was on the system.   If A.I. ever does take over I bet it's going to be really simple for them to take over.  They can just drive your car off a cliff.

We keep tacking on layers of technology to make things easier but what if we should be stripping layers away instead?  As you say the reverse...  Technologies that become invisible to us will be the ones that have the most impact not the ones that sit on top of another technology that we dislike in order to make it a little more tolerable.

@tinym, I don't believe fail safe is achievable. Responsive guidelines adapted to reign in emerging negative consequences is the best route.

@rbaz no doubt the mingling of the two will bring about many unintended consequences. I wonder what fail safes might be appropriate in this kind on environment.

Lyndon, I think the key part of that definition is the word "intelligently." Much of what robots have done in industry so far can be considered unintelligent labor. Not sure what you would consider intelligent labor ...
