    1. Sometimes people signal their departure by putting a phone to their ear, but it often happens in more subtle ways—there may be a glance down at a mobile device during dinner or a meeting. A “place” used to comprise a physical space and the people within it. What is a place if those who are physically present have their attention on the absent? At a café a block from my home, almost everyone is on a computer or smartphone as they drink their coffee. These people are not my friends, yet somehow I miss their presence.

    1. AlphaGo no more understands the game of Go than a robot mower understands the concept of a lawn. What it understands is zeroes and ones, and the patterns that can be drawn from their prodigiously smart crunching.

      Reallyy?? I am just reading that so many humans' do not not comprehend at all most of their decisions and acts. Furthermore, most significant decisions and mindful processing are taken by the subconscious.

      So, what does it mean to "understand", really? Are we sure that AlphaGo's pure number-crunching is not equivalent to some sense of understanding? And cannot it be that the relative "awareness" of some of our being comes from that simple, non-intelligent number-crunching?
