  1. The peanut gallery demands slides! Especially of ant hills and robotic pets!

    In all seriousness it was a very interesting talk and humbling to know where I stand relative to my cell phone : /

    On this topic, I was wondering what you thought of IBM’s Watson project (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/20/magazine/20Computer-t.html?ref=technology&pagewanted=all). In a few years do you think Watson could be fed old-fashioned hex color codes and predict what is in a photo? Or vice-versa, do you think the systems you are working on will eventually feign the ability to “guesstimate” trivia questions accurately?

    Btw, WP is still blocked here in China : (

  2. OK I’ll post the slides! WP blocked in China? I didn’t know that.

    The Watson project is extremely cool. It’s an example of the sort of progress I referred to in the talk. Synthesizing Watson and Goggles would be fun.
