                 We have long considered inventing to be a uniquely
                 human activity. But just as the assembly line automated
                 the process of manufacturing, today's computers are
                 automating the process of inventing. Software can
                 automatically generate designs for everything from
                 toothbrushes to antennas to automobile frames more
                 quickly and inexpensively than ever before, thereby
                 ushering in a new era of artificial invention.
                 Inventors will use artificial invention technology to
                 boost their inventive abilities to previously
                 undreamed-of heights, enabling small teams of inventors
                 to compete with mega-corporations who insist on
                 inventing the old-fashioned way. Even consumers will be
                 able to use artificial invention technology to become
                 inventors themselves. We stand poised to see the
                 emergence of the 'digital renaissance artisan' a person
                 who will have the ability to not only design new
                 inventions at the touch of a button, but also to
                 manufacture them automatically from the comfort of
                 home.",
