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

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?

Being a punster is another hazard of being an engineer.

It's pretty amazing stuff, these nanotubes.

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!

@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...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
