“Machines will definitely be able to observe us and understand us better,” said Hartmut Neven, a computer scientist and vision expert at Google. “Where that leads is uncertain.”The article is well worth the read, as usual they stick in all of the good aspects of such a technology to suck you in and they they give you the bad parts in the end, well me being me I tend to look at the bad parts because history keeps showing us how they can and will be abused. Anything for safety or making our lives better is a well played mantra, well I don't feel any safer, hell if anything I feel less safe as technology is a two way street and as far as making our lives better well that is debatable also. One of the biggest problems I have with technology is our over dependence on it and when it fails and it does we all look around with a jaw on the floor and think what do we do now. A good analogy of this is a funny commercial or video I saw where some people were on an escalator and they were half way up when it stops, What do we do now? Yeah it is kinda like that.
