Experts like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk warn us of the dangers of Artificial intelligence. Experts like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk warn us of the dangers of Artificial intelligence

A letter signed by such experts as Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk of Tesla Motors, Steve Wozniak of Apple will be presented at the international Artificial intelligence conference today. These experts have warned that an artificial intelligence arms race could be disastrous and could pose a threat to the future of humanity.

The reason they warn us against it is because the technology could get out of human control. They are still in favor of AI research, but with a ban on AI weapons. The united nations also had a discussion on the subject, to propose legislation on the ban of AI weapons, just as biological weapons and chemical weapons have been banned.

Other notable signers of the letter are Professor Noam Chomsky and Google AI…

The Philae Lander, the ESA ‘s spacecraft designed to land on a comet, just gave us some new results about what’s on a comet. After falling and tumbling down, the spacecraft was still functioning and analysed the soil on the comet. It found that the interior of the comet is pretty uniform, but the outside is heterogeneous, having rocky spots, and sandy spots.

Organic content

According to  an article published by science magazine, the comet had some organic content giving us clues as to how life could have formed, and to how common organic chemicals are in the solar system. They give us a glimpse as to what the early solar system was like, because comets stay pretty much intact, because there are no things such as water erosion, volcanic activity, etc.

The lander analysed the soil of the comet and found 16 organic…

Showcasing the power of easygen with ffcvt

The easygen is an easy to use universal code/text generator.
On top of that, it can provide options for Go applications from the command line as well. As matter of fact, it is using its own commandline flag code auto-generation capability to code itself. Such commandline flag code auto-generation functionality has been improved sine then.
