Robots and the right brain

Revenge of the Right Brain

From the article is a quote that directly demonstrates the power of the Robotic Nation and Manna:I think that what this quote misses is that that computers will be taking over right-brain skills as well. Think of many of the things that we traditionally consider to be right-brained:Many of these things can be modeled, or can be tested using large groups of people. In that case, then the computer actually does a better job and the right-brain activity gets taken over by a computer.

Here is an example. The company Optimost takes ads and web pages and optimizes them by computer to improve the click-through rate (look at the 2-minute demo). People used to lay out ads and web pages using the "right brain". Now a computer does it, and does it MUCH better.
