AI is already working to shape our future !
This mass of processed information that no single human controls is looked at by humans who then make a decision to do something.
So who really is making the decision ? if the computer does not lie, and offers the best possible bargain,solution, or route.... and we accept it.
here is an interesting concept that shows how it can affect the way we travel & our financial decisions
I cant understand why facebook has not jumped on the fact that our input of information is valuable and have not built a currency system into there website like http://witcoin.com/
If facebook were to mesh with bitcoin as they did http://www.oodle.com/
to create http://apps.facebook.com/marketplace/
It would be the worlds reserve currency instantly,and everyone would end up using micro payments for those goods and services as bitcoin currency strengthens, and the dollar weakens.
The machine will control the whole world, and that has to be the new government or AI
