When it comes to illegal music downloads, we don’t need AI we need IA.

[From Where I Sit] A post by Ann Althouse about the continuing popularity of illegal downloads reminded me of a thought I had a long time ago: We don’t need Artificial Intelligence as much as we need Intelligent Art.

Robots develop more teamwork skills, humans still unwitting conspirators

[Engadget] Following recent developments in robot cooperation between virtual bots, AIBOs and military bots, researchers at Örebro University in Sweden have created yet more progenitors of our future overlords that can get buddy buddy with each other. These bots work by tapping into each others sensors and computers, allowing them to perform tasks that they otherwise wouldn't be able to do on their own, such as navigating past difficult obstacles -- a door, for instance.

My Life As a Robot

[Digital Digressions] The caption reads, “If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job, the kind robots will be doing soon.” Besides saying “nyah nyah” to the superiors who never stay in my cubicle long enough to read the caption, I more or less believe what the poster says.
