i read this article in nat. geographic a few days back. Though many would know all this coz of House MD :). It’s slightly creepy with artificial eyes, ears etc etc. Like that was my first reaction.
Machine and human beings interacting so closely.. almost integrating. Don’t know why I should think of it in terms of good or bad. Just that we are no more mysterious and sacred. 10 years down the line I can accidently cut your finger and say ‘oops, i’m sorry.. check out the transplants though.. the silicon ones are much better ;).. i got all my fingers replaced! It’s really swell!’. 20 years later we will be directly sedating those regions of the brain which generate the feelings of dissatisfaction or ‘angst’. And by the looks of it, few more years further down the line, we’ll be the first specie to annihilate itself by mass-scale in-animation.
How I love to exaggerate!
Just was thinking whether machines will tend to man or otherwise. Women of course will be women as millions of years of collective experience and memory stand in testimony.
