    Despite their ubiquity, smartphones are still not very helpful at getting you information based on what you're already doing. For instance, if you get an e-mail from a friend asking if you want to check out a new restaurant in town, you have to leave the app behind and go conduct a Web search to learn more.

    Our tech lives are full of pain points, but at least the world’s tech geniuses seem committed to solving them. Today who complains about the things that bugged us a decade ago, such as heavy laptops, slow cellular Internet, the inability to do e-mail in planes? It was only a matter of time before those geniuses started tackling one of the longest-running pain points in history: passwords. We’re supposed to create a long, complex, unguessable password.

    To PayPal, the transactions signal fraud: a US user’s account is accessed in the UK, China, and elsewhere around the world. But PayPal’s security system - thanks to a growing reliance on an artificial - intelligence technology known as deep learning - is now able to spot possible fraud without making mistakes. That’s because algorithms mine data from the customer’s purchasing history.

    Last weekend I watched Jurassic Park for the first time in years. Still awed by the seemingly realistic, long-extinct animals, I started wondering: What would happen if they escaped the remote Pacific island where they had been created and made it to land?
