How Technology Is Changing Our Minds For The Better

The plot of many a dystopian novel or movie is predictable: first technology advances, then humans become dependent on that technology and, finally, that technology turns on us. But what if the brain that makes the smart computer is being made smarter by the computer? Ross Reynolds sits down with Clive Thompson about the new book, "Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds for the Better."

Produced by Arwen Nicks.
