Important Facts about HumanBeings A HumanBeing can only be programmed interactively.
As a system element, a HumanBeing has a variety of strengths and weaknesses, when designing a system you should take this into account.
HumanBeings can excel at extracting patterns from noisy data sets. However, they can easily generate FalsePositives, finding patterns where none exist.
HumanBeings can provide instructions at critical decision points in cases where most components would fail silently. However, HumanBeings can fail to react where automated systems would function well.
HumanBeings must have a relatively constant stream of data about the state of the rest of the system; be careful if their datastreams are too bland - they can start to behave erratically.
HumanBeings communicate more easily if supported by broadband communication infrastructure. On this text-based Wiki, the missing body language part gives rise to a lot of misunderstandings.
HumanBeings communicate most efficiently when they can touch each other.
HumanBeings don't like to work as slaves to masters.
HumanBeings are annoyed if they feel themselves used as tools.
A HumanBeing is always instantiated outside the system.
What usually happens is that ROOT creates a new account and one or more HumanBeings begins to use it. Some systems have suggested that ROOT may actually be a HumanBeing but this concept-tree is of such low-probability that it can safely be dismissed.
A HumanBeing may be reading this, You-Who-Can-Pass-the-TuringTest might see it, but it is known that a HumanBeing can occasionally read DataStreams? in transit.
"[HumanBeings are said by some to be] ape-descended life forms... so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea." -- DouglasAdams, HitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy
My take on it: HumanBeings are instantiated outside the system at random times and will act onto the system in unpredicted ways. It is however possible to analyse the behavior of a Group Of HumanBeings and one should take that into account when designing the system. -- ViktorRosenfeld
From MrAristotle: A HumanBeing is a two-legged Animal that laughs.
