@mhh: Indeed, the next step -- likely -- is self-driving Google Express vehicles that the merchants are paid a bit extra to preload.

@mhh: I'll be impressed when computer players can routinely both effectively partner with and effectively defeat the top bridge players in the world.

Re: Watson
It's less about finding the "weird" diagnosis and identifying the most likely diagnoses -- including ones that doctors might not necessarily think of.

Re: Watson
You know what's even more impressive? A computer algorithm is now at the level of beating an expert human Go player -- five times in a row.

So IBM conquered chess, and now Go is almost "solved" -- cognitive computers are going to really start to do some incredible things soon.

Re: Watson
mhhf1ve, that's impressive - thanks!

I truly believe that there are multiple roles and functions we can use robotics for.  I think this has great potential to truly open up all types of services - from security to personal assistants to healthcare, etc.  If developed properly, I think the future with robots can be both a consumer and commercial success.

Re: Watson
Automated cognitive tasks may soon combine with physical tasks. The field of robotics is really getting some impressive advances, and it's only getting better and better.

Right now, we have telepresence bots that aren't too robust but serve a purpose:

and even some more capable robots:

And these robots are going to be even more useful with higher cognitive functions processed in the cloud and sent to the mechanical bot on the ground (or in the air if it's a drone).

Re: Watson
mhhf1ve, I'm with you - good analysis.  But in that case if we choose to run errands under the direction of robots (which could work), I am going to give the controls still to the robot to watch over any "rogue" activities.

Thanks for your vision.  Things definitely could change.

Re: Watson
> "as I don't see us sending our cars on errands on their own?"

A "Level 4" autonomous vehicle should be able to get from point A to point B all on its own -- without any occupants in the car. So... perhaps these cars *will* be able to run simple errands -- or carry robots that can complete even more complex tasks. I've seen some drones attached to concept vehicles already, so you can imagine we're not THAT far from having a car that can transport a drone that can fly over and deliver stuff without any human involvement during the process.
