"How smart does your bed have to be, before you are afraid to go to sleep at night?" (1995)


“Would you believe somebody who told you that on a linear scale, with a toaster at one end and a two year-old baby at the other, that Artificial Intelligence is about one bread crumb away from the toaster?“

That was 1969. Now we are at least 5 crumbs away from the toaster. :thinkerguns:

@GeoffWozniak I just realized I mistook the date on a quote from Phillip K Dick (1969) as the article date. Whoops.
