Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?
I think not.
"Based on how one person thinks about a hammer, a computer can identify when another person also is thinking about a hammer. It also can differentiate between items in the same category of tools, be it a hammer or screwdriver." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"How" a person thinks about a hammer? I can safely say that my dad thinks about hammers differently than you or I. He looks at a hammer and says, "We can just bump out a wall here, and add on a new wing to the house. It'll be easy..." And then he proceeds to do it. Though, probably not with a hammer. I bet he'd use a sawzall.
You go, dad.
