Thomas Shaw's curator insight, March 22, 2013 7:13 AM

This article was published only yesterday and it really grabbed my attention. It raises the subject that by creating computers that can teach themselves, technologies such as gathering-systems, voice-recognition applications and surveillance systems will become more advanced than they already are.

Imagine if you had a surveillance system at home that could recognise you as the owner by facial recognition or height for example, and when you invite a new friend over, it identifies them for the first time and by either voice recognition or human gestures it can detect that there is a 'friendly' relationship between you and this new person that entered the househould. This kind of technology would be the best kind of surveillance system any place could have as it would be like having a second pair of eyes constantly watching over everything that is happening.

 

It would mean that surveillance systems would no longer need to be 'armed' in order for them to alert authorities when there is an intruder, rather it would just know that this unknown person should not be inside this building at this time of night and could even ring authorities providing them with all the information they need to know.

 

Although this then brings up the question: Is this too much power for a computer to have? It is nice knowing that your computer at home simply does what you tell it to. But having a computer that can learn and evolve from the information you put into it is quite a scary thought.
