It has been obvious for a while now that artificial intelligence is not only going to assist inventors with more robust research and analysis tools, but will soon be inventing on a large scale itself.

Barriers to Innovation: The Greatest Idea in the World Is Only As Good as the Process that Put It Together

The Apple Watch is, as usual for Apple, a trailblazing product that not only showcases a new product, but opens up a path to grow a new area of technology. It is also another example of true innovation struggling against internal and external forces, all of which try to hamper innovation, harming sales and damaging the development of exciting technology.

Copyright is a Cautionary Tale for Patent Holders

SOPA, PIPA, RIAA, MPAA. In certain corners of the Internet, these are not just 4-letter acronyms, but 4-letter words. What is most striking about the conflict over digital piracy is the incredible level of hostility the copyright holders and their defenders, including the Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America, have generated.
