Accelerating Future

Cracking the human social algorithm for this week ending the 27/03/11: our favourite Quadrocopters can now juggle balls between each other, MIT takes a stab at a vision of the year 2037, the latest telepresence robot is more automated and smaller, social bots gain autonomous influence and standing in online social networks. Hivemind topic: we discuss a very near future in which social networks or hiveminds can be played and "mined" by autonomous bots, where you have a unique algorithm encompassing all your demographic and behavioural data for better personalisation and recommendation... and well, other stuff :)
