Referendum on robot rights: your chance to vote

The time has come to vote in the A.I. game! Are you for or against giving full citizenship rights to robots? After all, in the year 2142 they're nearly as human as the humans surely they deserve the same treatment? Or would this just lead humanity towards AI domination? You can help decide this essential question. Just go to, enter your User Access Number (if you don't have one yet, you can get it at Polipulse) and vote! Polls are open until July 23, 7pm (EST). Do the right thing!

Artificial passenger could make driving safer

An artificial passenger (AP) designed to make long solo journeys safer and more bearable has been developed by IBM. The software chats to you, chooses your music, tells you jokes - and sounds alarms when you foul up.
The AP is not an inflatable automaton that sits in the passenger seat. It's an intelligent presence packed into the dashboard electronics. The heart of the system is a conversation planner that holds a profile of you, including details of your interests and profession. When activated, the AP uses the profile to cook up provocative questions such as, "Who was the first person you dated?" via a speech generator and the in-car speakers.
