I was recently reading a Rolling Stone interview with Bernard Sumer, lead singer of New Order, where he explained that the title of this song is inspired by the point at which artificial intelligence overtakes human intelligence.

I would argue that the point is already here.

If you measure this by the pull our electronic devices have on our lives and the amount of time we spend reaching for our smartphones or tablets, I think that we are very much dependant upon artificial intelligence.

I wrote a post quite a while ago about the chemical reactions that are triggered in our brains from using technology and what we can do to relieve the addiction.

Seek out human interactions.
