A couple of Sundays ago, the New York Times Magazine arrived with a picture of Barbie on the front. Naturally, I was intrigued, so I read the article. The new Barbie called “Hello Barbie” is fully quipped with 8,000 lines of script and a wifi transmitter inside of her necklace. This doll is catching the firefly of artificial intelligence that engineers have been chasing since dolls first said “Papa” with reeds and tubes. Think about how cool it would be to have a doll who could actually talk to you!
