It's enough of a challenge to contemplate what life will be like once everyone is forced in one way or another to interact with robots. Devices currently on the market have gradually begun sounding more like actual humans. And since part of the idea of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to be able to anticipate a person's needs and choices, while also adjusting to changes in plans, it's a safe bet that robots will soon sound so human-like -- because who really wants to hold a conversation with a machine? -- that it might be difficult to tell robots and humans apart.

Enter the special earpiece, a prototype device, somewhat resembling a behind-the-ear hearing aid, that can sense synthesized voice patterns and then, via a thermoelectric plate, send a chilly shiver down the wearer's backbone.

Insects are assumed to be simple beings, existing to mate, eat, and survive human attack. But new research from a team at Oxford University suggests fruit flies may be more complex than humans originally realized.

While watching fruit flies interact, researchers noticed they tended to pause to gather information before deciding between different types of odors in increasingly close concentrations. Prior to the test, the flies had been trained to avoid a specific concentration of that odor. As the odors were more separate from each other, the fruit flies seemed to be able to be able to make quicker decisions.
