Technology: Machines Capable of Human Sense

By Dick Weisinger

Machines are learning how to sense. Devices and sensors are enabling machines to be able to mimic how human senses function. The technology will enable the creation of devices that both augment human senses and make machines more capable.

Bernie Meyerson, IBM Fellow and VP of Innovation, said that “just as the human brain relies on interacting with the world using multiple senses, cognitive systems will bring even greater value and insights, helping us solve some of the most complicated challenges.”

Ericsson dubs the trend the “internet of Senses”. New technologies like AI, VR, AR, 5G, and IoT sensors are some of the enablers of the trend.

Dr. Michael Bj√∂rn, Head of Research Agenda at Ericsson, said that “we often imagine the future as a linear development from today. But we already need to consider what opportunities and challenges a world where all human senses are digitalized will bring. You could go to work, go on vacation, and travel the world, all from your home.”
