Can technology prevent our always on culture by being always on?

Last year I flew on a plane over Christmas and finally got to watch the movie Her. I took notes about the movie relating to technology being immersive into our lives

  • Immersive games – Real time feedback when talking to characters
  • Empathy systems – What is it to be human, Writing for others
  • Adapting to change – Contextual images

What I thought was interesting was the the email filter when the OS said “hey this looks urgent”.  By being always on and processing, it can filter the noise in our daily alerts and notification and only alert us when immediate action is necessary.

Can technology prevent our always on culture by being always on?

A scarier question is do we need human interaction?  Can we avoid human interaction because we can emulate and simulate human interaction? How to you build profiles/personas to capture emotion? Is it that simple? Can you program real love?
