AI Will Make Us Creators, Not Consumers
If our digital devices were people, we would probably describe them as high maintenance and wonder quietly to ourselves if it was time to break up with them, says director at Intel Labs Genevieve Bell.
What's the Latest Development?
2012 will likely be the year that a machine passes the Turing Test, meaning that you will be able to talk to a computer just as you would another person and that the computer's responses will be indistinguishable from what a real person would say. Passing that significant milestone would mean achieving true artificial intelligence. The irony, says Genevieve Bell, a director at Intel Labs, is that nobody will care because we already expect more from our AI.
What's the Big Idea?
We expect to have a real relationship with technology, not just interact with it. Currently, if our digital devices were people, we would probably describe them as high maintenance and wonder to ourselves if it was time to break up, says Bell. Today's devices, which require constant attention (yes, please connect to that wi-fi hotspot), will evolve to become collaborative partners in a future where creation will replace consumption as the primary way we interact with technology.

Some evidence attributes a certain neurological phenomenon to a near death experience.
Time of death is considered when a person has gone into cardiac arrest. This is the cessation of the electrical impulse that drive the heartbeat. As a result, the heart locks up. The moment the heart stops is considered time of death. But does death overtake our mind immediately afterward or does it slowly creep in?
