@R_Colin_Johnson: I just read your  Was I just talking to an artificial intelligence? blog and I've got goosebumps all over....


Sorry :-)  

I'm glad you enjoyed my blog -- I look forward to hearing what you think about the book Robopocalypse once you've had a chance to get into it -- some of it seems to be very ruturistic .. .until you read the various state-of-the-art articles here on EE Times .. .then you realize it's closer than you think...

I just read your  Was I just talking to an artificial intelligence? blog and I've got goosebumps all over. I've been using Apple's Siri and have been loving the human-like interactions it enables between man-and-machine. However, in the wrong hands these AIs could indeed start fooling us in less than savory ways. As a defense strategy, I've just downloaded Robopocalypse and plan to read it for tips on how to defend myself from the dark side of AI :)

Thanks for the fun read!

@Max: Who "nose" where this will all lead? (Sorry, I couldn't help myself)

Being a punster is another hazard of being an engineer.

It's pretty amazing stuff, these nanotubes.

Every time I see something like this, it makes me think of Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson (Click Here to see my review).

Also, check out my blog Was I just talking to an artificial intelligence?
