IN A FINE TWIST of irony, the software algorithms at Google's planet-wide cluster interrupted my peaceful web searching experience to tell me I looked more like a virus rather than a human being.

In Philip K Dick's famous novel 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' 'bounty' hunters track down, identify and kill human-like androids which are made of organic components and thus virtually indistinguishable from humans. They subject suspect androids to an "empathy test" interrogation designed to trigger an emotional response on the suspects. Since those androids can't feel empathy, their responses are either bad or too slow as the programmed brain on them struggles to come up with the logical correct answer, instead of the emotional one that the interviewer expects.
