    I do, for sure. That's not to say that your Brave New World visions may not be as well, but for art purposes, still pictures work very well. Photography hasn't killed off painting, after all. There's no reason why interactive 3D feelies should kill off still photography.

    Hi res video with high FPS where you can just lift a single frame as still shot.

    Mind you pretty pointless as AI will render any scene you want from any time period LOL

    As said in a earlier post I imagine film shooting still around in 2117 as a art thing like painting. Its the analogue thing and materials. :)

    Yeah, I really think it might just go back to its roots of real physical film for stills. :)

    You can imagine people choosing to have wedding photos done on film with hand made prints. :)

    No computers at all. The pure art&craft of photography both shooting and darkroom.

    I am not sure we will be here in 2117 the way things are going...

    Er yeah :eek:

    I remember talking about AI and it always seem a bit further down the line.

    But from what I have read and seen, it does seem a lot closer these days.

    If AI is not handled properly could be problematic. I wonder about life imitating art. :eek:

    There was a tv prog about self drive cars and it raised some serious questions about computers deciding in will crash scenarios what the system should decide. Like protect the vehicle passenger(s) at all costs or if the crash is going to result in possible life loss of kids in another vehicle, what then? If there is action that kill its passenger(s) but save the kids in the other vehicle should it do that? Or not?

    These are not SF questions, this technology might be on our roads by 2020, at least 2025 at the latest they figure.

    Ford is promising such cars by 2021 if I recall from the prog.

    That is only 4 years from now! :eek:

    No idea but I know that whatever anyone suggests now will be laughed at after 100 years.

    On the one hand I won't be around in 2117. On the other hand I think that art museums all over the world will require a certain degree of photographic technology and ability to keep their collections in an exhibitable state. - negatives, slides, prints etc.
