The difference between smart and intelligent
BY TOBIAS BERNETH
@ VOL 55
ON FEB 09, 2016
Tobias Berneth, Founder of Things to Be, discusses the question "Why can't smart technology be smarter?" he challanges this question by comparing technology. What is the difference between smart and intelligent products? We have smart products – products that can store, and deliver information. The intelligent product would be able to recognize redundancies and patterns of information.
Smart products await your input. Do you loose time by using smart products? By using intelligent products, would you be given time, as the product is constantly changing after your needs?
Berneth compares these intelligent products to making new friends. He asks, "How do you design something that collects your data?”. It’s like making friends, make products that people can communicate with in a human way and that can understand how you do it.

Steamed Up over STEM
BY JOHN DEBACHER
@ VOL 22
ON APR 13, 2017
What's all the fuss and focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our schools? It's spread beyond earlier efforts to proactively help our young women not feel stigmatized if they enjoy an equation or two, and now threatens to spread a cumulonimbus over our educational system. Where are the Arts in all this? Not even chopped liver -- that might qualify as culinary science. I believe that, when you get beyond all the flash of STEM's appeal, it's components can, upon reflection, be seen as progeny of the Arts. The necessary components of abstraction, classification and description rely on humankind's unique language abilities, as do the symbols in formulas and theorems. Science could not have developed without the fundamental dance of discourse and recorded evidence that developed from the advancement of oral storytelling into poetry to literature...and of course, how could we survive any of this without humor?
