The 'World's Smartest Building' Breaks Ground

Intel is a company that makes amazing things but I'm not sure I'm on board with this whole "World's Smartest Building" thing. The good news is that this is not mandatory and employees have the right to opt out if they wish.

Deemed a "micromanaging monster," it will have the capability of learning the habits of every employee and customizing his or her working environment. Among other things, the building will know what coffee to make for each employee, and how to make it, when to send him or her to get a haircut, and it can recommend where to park. Now, if this all sounds way too invasive, each employee can opt to withhold information so as to regulate what the building is able to program about them.
