common sense

Today just another interesting scientific link this time about common sense:

The MIT Media Lab has embarked on an effort to give computers and other modern devices “common sense”, the capacity to understand and reason about the world as intimately as people do. By giving machines common sense, they will finally be able to understand people, our goals and typical problems, and they will be able to better assist us in solving them or coming to terms with them–thus simplifying and humanizing the technology and tools of the digital age.

For those unfamiliar with the problem of giving computers common sense:
