Few people would deny the increasing linkage between man and machine. The relentless “Information Revolution” has given rise to Artifical Intelligence (AI) and emerging technologies, capable of mimicking — to some degree — intricate human traits, such as, thinking, creativity and problem-solving.
As a fan of the Subway cult classic “Chuck” I was intrigued as to how far away the technology featured in the show is. For those not familiar with the show’s premise, Chuck, played by Zachary Levi, is a Stanford dropout who opens an e-mail from his ex-roommate and all the National Security administration and CIA databases gets downloaded into his head. Fearing security risks, the CIA sends him a handler played by Yvonne Strahovski, to help the government make best use of the download known as the “Intersect.”
