>From the news story:
"He predicted that applications developed for the brain OS will be able to
instill genuine machine intelligence into next-generation "conversational"
applications such as talking automatic teller machines or fully automatic
customer-service "personalities" that outperform even a knowledgeable human
being in answering ad hoc queries. HNC said it will assist participating
engineers in creating their own AI applications during the technology course."

A lot of displaced "knowledgeable human beings" will need to find other lines
of work.

What do you suppose they'll do?

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego, human values, scientific relinquishment, malevolent AI,
non-sensory experience, SETI

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
