"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about artificial intelligence development.

1.) Google Glass controls and artificial intelligence detailed. Google's cautious approach to allowing people to play with Project Glass means the UI of the wearable computer is something of a mystery, but a new patent application could spill some of the secrets.

2.) Can an algorithm win your fantasy football league? English computer science academics create an algorithm-based software that they claim creates a most excellent fantasy team. Is this progress?

3.) Today's stupidly effective artificial intelligence. June 23rd marked the centenary of Alan Turing, the genius who laid some of the decisively important groundwork for the computer. That's meant a lot of articles about Turing, computers, artificial intelligence, and the Turing Test.

4.) The triumph of artificial intelligence! 16,000 processors can identify a cat in a YouTube video.. sometimes. In the quest for ever-smarter artificial intelligence, it's easy to let hype get ahead of performance.

5.) Trapit for iPad aims to fix mobile browsing with artificial intelligence. Browsing is flawed -- on the web, but even more so on mobile. But what about an iPad application that uses artificial intelligence to deliver personalized content?
