David Thomas Watson's curator insight, March 22, 2013 3:23 AM

Although the reliability of this source is open to some question (it is from "KurzweilAl" and it cannot be confirmed if it contains a little bias) the fact of the matter is that it raises a very interesting point. "Will planes someday fly without pilots?" Now to my own opinion, I do believe it will happen and not only do I believe this, I hope to be the person that designs software so unique, so powerful, so comprehensive, that there will be no need for any pilots on the aircraft.

When it comes to the connected home, it's keep it simple, stupid

When it comes to the connected home, it's keep it simple, stupid | leapmind | Scoop.it

As more people install smart NEST thermostats and use iPads to interact with their TVs, the stage is set for massive adoption of the completely connected home, right? Well, maybe.

 

Some big issues have to be sorted out before that will happen. For one thing, there is a Tower of Babel of standards for communicating between various devices made by different vendors to serve different purposes. That has to come together first, according to speakers at GigaOM’s Mobilize conference on Friday.

 

There are cool home automation devices coming out of Kickstarter as well as from consumer electronic giants. That variety is great except for the fact that if these things can’t talk to each other, they really aren’t connected at all.

Probably not news if you are a pet owner, or ever worked with farm animals. However a prominent group of scientists signs a document stating that animals are just as "conscious and aware" as humans are. In the search for alien intelligence - looks like we as a species had better start looking a little closer to home. Click on the image or the title to learn more.
