Google use a neural net to 'understand' the numbers in Street View images.

http://www.technologyreview.com/view/523326/how-google-cracked-house-number-identification-in-street-view/
Google can identify and transcribe all the views it has of street numbers in France in less than an hour, thanks to a neural network that’s just as good as human operators. Now its engineers reveal how they developed it.

Imagine a day when the medicines given to you are smart enough to recognize what to do in different circumstances. Chemical structures with algorithmic capabilities is where this is leading.

Asimov rules!
 
Isaac Asimov wasn’t the only person who peered into the future during the 60s and got it right. 
When New York City hosted The World's Fair in 1964, Isaac Asimov, the prolific sci-fi author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, took the opportunity to wonder what the world would look like 50 years hence -- assuming the world survived the nuclear threats of the Cold War.

Hello, we are starting to go out in the big wide world (scary :) ) with +Ingenia , an ontology free content auto-categorisation and recommendation engine.

Sweden has terrible schools from a testing point of view... but workers in Sweden are smart and productive... plus, their students are some of the happiest in the world... Finland and South Korea students fare very well on tests but are miserable in school.

"Both sides seem to agree that the point of schools is learning academic material, and that test scores tell us something useful about whether schools are successful.  That’s wrong, (...) Based on test scores Sweden has the worst schools in Western Europe, even worse than America’s K-12.  Horrible schools.  But their students are above average in happiness, far above Finland. "
(Alternative title; why finishing schools are better than Finnish schools.) When left and right-leaning economists agree on something you can usually be pretty sure it's true. But education is different. Both sides seem to agree that the point of schools is learning academic material, ...
