THIS iPHONE APP CAN DO YOUR KID'S HOMEWORK


If there's one truth that the tech revolution has proven itself repeatedly, it's this: just because we can build something doesn't mean we should. Take, for instance, Google Glass, iTunes Ping, and Clippy (to say nothing of the smart fork.)

Likewise, imagine an app that can take a snapshot of a student's homework assignment, chew on the questions using cloud-based artificial intelligence, and spit out the answers. In theory, this sounds great for students, yet terrible for learning — that is, until you put Socratic to the test.
