Seeking More Humane Computing

IBM’s Brad Becker, chief design officer for Watson on the ‘More Humane’ Promise of Cognitive Computing, in a very thought provoking interview with Knowledge@Wharton. We always thought of cognitive systems as specialized, engineering style interactions, for specialized decision makers.

We dabbled with applications like the still available 'Stain Brain' App, now 25+ years old, that can be used directly by consumers.  (See the Stain Detective tag below for more on this)

What are the implications of  having applications like Chef Watson that take this to a new human level?  What are the specifications for humane computing?  This also combines well with new, open source and accessible sources of data.
