Former Google VP: Machines Emotionally Intelligent In 2016

Andrew Moore, the Former Vice President at Google and current Dean of the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science says that machines will become self aware in 2016 and kill us all. Whoops, I meant to say emotionally intelligent, my bad. wink

"There will be immediate positive uses," he explains over the phone. "Monitoring a patient in the ER with an emotionally intelligent computer will enable doctors to sense discomfort when the patient is incapable of communicating. Measuring student engagement by looking at a students' emotional reaction will help teachers be more effective. Those are clear wins."
