It is frankly quite rediculous how spot-on asimov was. The man was incredibly insightful. I realize most SciFi writers have a bit of the feel, but he really went above and beyond. He and Clarke have always been an inspiration for me.

@Susan: Please still write a blog about it. I'd be curious to know what you have to say about it.

Too late -- now I'm sulking (LOL)

@Susan: Apparently Issac Asimov made predictions in New York Times in 1964 for a world's fair about what the 2014 world's fair would be like. Here's an excerpt...

@Susan:Issac Asimov supposedly predicted 2014 would be the year of robots, smartphones, etc.

Did you see my blog Introducing REX: The Brain for Robots?

Apparently Issac Asimov made predictions in New York Times in 1964 for a world's fair about what the 2014 world's fair would be like. Here's an excerpt:

"Robots will neither be common nor very good in 2014, but they will be in existence. The I.B.M. exhibit at the present fair has no robots but it is dedicated to computers, which are shown in all their amazing complexity, notably in the task of translating Russian into English. If machines are that smart today, what may not be in the works 50 years hence? It will be such computers, much miniaturized, that will serve as the "brains" of robots. In fact, the I.B.M. building at the 2014 World's Fair may have, as one of its prime exhibits, a robot housemaid*large, clumsy, slow- moving but capable of general picking-up, arranging, cleaning and manipulation of various appliances. It will undoubtedly amuse the fairgoers to scatter debris over the floor in order to see the robot lumberingly remove it and classify it into "throw away" and "set aside." (Robots for gardening work will also have made their appearance.) General Electric at the 2014 World's Fair will be showing 3-D movies of its "Robot of the Future," neat and streamlined, its cleaning appliances built in and performing all tasks briskly. (There will be a three-hour wait in line to see the film, for some things never change.) " --Issac Asimov, 1964, New York Times

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
