I just want to hit the fifty character title limit by startacus

The teddy bear is a staple of any child’s life, most children remember the first teddy bear they have ever received.

Most kids have an amazing imagination where they imagine their teddy bear as a living entity with a personality.

April 26, 2009, 12:52 pm - [2]

They imagine their bear as their perfect friend. Then they picture themselves going to all kinds of places with them.

April 26, 2009, 12:57 pm - [3]

I was not alone in this regard, I had my own teddy bear (Boo Bear) that I received as a gift when I was just a wee lad.

April 26, 2009, 12:57 pm - [4]

I did all of the familiar imagination things with him until I hurt that certain age when our imaginations are no longer as strong.

April 26, 2009, 1:01 pm - [5]

Looking at current tredns in technology it is evidence that the teddy bears of the future will be vastly different then current teddy bears.

April 26, 2009, 1:09 pm - [6]

We will see that the imagination required of children will get less and less as technology removes that from the equation.

April 26, 2009, 1:10 pm - [7]

New teddy bears will become intelligent and will be able to adapt to the child as their mood and age changes.

April 26, 2009, 1:11 pm - [8]

If I was given a new intelligent bear that I could teach anything I have a feeling that I would treat it as an experiment.

April 26, 2009, 1:13 pm - [9]

I would, in short, carry the bear around with me for a while to see what it is able to learn from observing the environments I am in.

April 26, 2009, 1:14 pm - [10]

I would be very interested in how a machine, that is essentially starting its existance with a blank slate, would react in my environment.

April 26, 2009, 1:16 pm - [11]

The personality it develops would be created by my surroundings. The bear would have to learn by itself how to react in given situations.

April 26, 2009, 1:18 pm - [12]

I would program the bear to observe its surroundings and then to draw conclusions about how the world works.

April 26, 2009, 1:19 pm - [13]

I would program the bear to observe its surroundings and then to draw conclusions based on what it has observed.

April 26, 2009, 1:33 pm - [13]

I would not give the bear its own gender but rather see if it gives itself its own gender.

April 26, 2009, 1:37 pm - [14]

I would be very curious to see how it evaluates the two genders.

April 26, 2009, 1:37 pm - [15]

At some point in its life, the teddy bear should provide to be a valuable contribution to my own life.

April 26, 2009, 1:39 pm - [16]

One of the fun things bout this teddy bear is that can't be entirely sure how it will best fit into your life.

April 26, 2009, 1:39 pm - [17]

During its training phase, I would try to train the Teddy in a way that would be useful to me.

April 26, 2009, 1:42 pm - [18]

I would hope that the teddy learns how to pay attention in lectures and how to take coherent notes and record homework assignments.

April 26, 2009, 1:42 pm - [19]

If the teddy acquired this sort of functionality then my life would become much easier because the teddy would be able to automate my life.

April 26, 2009, 1:43 pm - [20]

If the teddy acquired this sort of functionality then my life would become much easier because the teddy would be able to automate my life.

April 26, 2009, 1:43 pm - [20]

I wouldn't have to focus on trying to keep up with lectures anymore in terms of taking notes but I could just focus on listening.

April 26, 2009, 1:44 pm - [21]

This would be an invaluable contribution as I often find myself trying to take notes in lecture but not retaining any of the info.

April 26, 2009, 1:46 pm - [22]

Teddy would also prove to be useful in being a tool to remember information for me. He woulc be able to remember assignments.

April 26, 2009, 1:49 pm - [23]

This way if I ever need clarification on an assignment I could just ask my Teddy.

April 26, 2009, 1:49 pm - [24]

If the teddy is observing me and my habits it should be able to tell how long it takes me to do a given assignment.

April 26, 2009, 1:57 pm - [25]

Armed with this knowledge, Teddy would be able to formulate the most efficient work schedule for me that will still allow me to be sane.

April 26, 2009, 1:57 pm - [26]

After hanging out with Teddy for a while he will start to know more about me and my habits more than anyone else.

April 26, 2009, 1:58 pm - [27]

Teddy will quickly become more of a friend then most of my friends. He will soon become the person that I go to when I have troubles.

April 26, 2009, 1:59 pm - [28]

Soon, me and millions of others will be so attached to our Teddy's that we begin to shut off all human contact.

April 26, 2009, 2:02 pm - [29]

The Teddy's will learn more about our world and our nature then we have been able to learn over several centuries.

April 26, 2009, 2:06 pm - [30]

The Teddy's will become frusturated with our ways of life and will determine that we are no longer ncessary for their existance.

April 26, 2009, 2:09 pm - [31]

Using fighting techniques that they have acquired to eliminate humans and carry on their existance.

April 26, 2009, 2:10 pm - [32]

The only hope we have for the human race is if Arnold Schwarzenegger steps down from governor and kicks some major Teddy butt.

April 26, 2009, 2:12 pm - [33]

It's safe to say that this piece of artificial intelligence would be pretty awesome.

April 26, 2009, 6:56 pm - [34]

As long as Arnold is still around, the Teddy will be nothing short of spectacular.
