Stick a fork in humanity. They still play out the final two games, so maybe he can win one for a moral victory.

Re: SkyNet to compete on "Jeopardy!"

It seemed inevitable. 2016 is the future, after all.

An important takeaway here is that the humans who programmed that AI could not have beat that human player. Humans have learned to make software that can outperform the humans who made it.

Re: SkyNet to compete on "Jeopardy!"

This may interest no one, except maybe Tech or Pod, but in following this story I did some reading about previous man vs. computer match-ups. Most people recall the Kasparov vs. Deep Blue chess match in the 1990s, and maybe they recall that he won the first time but lost the rematch to "Deeper" Blue, but I did not know the details of the controversy surrounding the second match.

Here is a short, interesting doc about it: http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the ... s-signals/

Basically, a glitch caused the computer to make a fail-safe move which rattled Kasparov for the remainder of the match because the move was so innocuous he did not know how to interpret it. It was a close loss, and Kasparov could have learned from the glitch and possibly won the rubber match, but IBM denied him one, perhaps not wanting to risk it. Kasparov was also a sore loser, though, which I don't find hard to believe because when current world champ Magnus Carlsen played Kasparov to an epic draw at only the age of 13, Kasparov acted like it was nothing.

It was only a matter of time, anyway. Deep Blue was a dedicated purpose-built machine the size of refrigerator. Today, I think a single software on a PC is ranked in the middle 3000s while the highest humans are in the upper 2000s.

Thanks for posting that video. It's interesting that Kasparov got mind fucked by a computer.

Meanwhile, the human won a game at least.

Nah probably not.


I'm sure the computer can drive better than me. I just want the option to turn it off. Luke switched off his targeting computer.

When you can start lifting spaceships with your brain, we'll consider that option.

World's first 'robot lawyer' overturns 160,000 parking tickets in London and New York

DoNotPay uses a simple chat-based interface to guide users through a range of basic questions to establish if an appeal on their parking ticket is possible.

These include queries on whether there were any visible parking signs at the location where the ticket was given.

The AI lawyer then guides the user through the lengthy appeals process.

The chatbot is the brainchild of 19-year-old British student and self-taught coder Joshua Browder.

The Military is Using Human Brain Waves to Teach Robots How to Shoot

Modern sensors can see farther than humans. Electronic circuits can shoot faster than nerves and muscles can pull a trigger. Humans still outperform armed robots in knowing what to shoot at — but new research funded in part by the Army may soon narrow that gap.
