Bruce Draper, an associate professor, and his team consisting of Ross Beveridge, a computer science professor, and Michael Kirby and Chris Peterson, professors in the Department of Mathematics at a Colarado State University, are expected to spend the next two years trying to teach computers to take pictures and describe those pictures in words.
The team received a $625,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for this purpose.

I love computers and the availability of information they provide me; I am just wary about the control they now have of our lives..
No such thing as Cell Phones anymore, just pocket computers.. I own the Droid X and it is just a mini computer..
Computers in our cars, taverns, cafes.. Literally everywhere..
What do you think we are giving up by giving so much control to computers?
