Is Artificial Intelligence A Radical Change?

#artificialintelligence

New technology being introduced into the market to automate historically manual tasks, brings back our sense of fear. Do we want people to complete menial/labor intensive tasks or do we want to create competent/reliable machines to complete these tasks? These feelings of uncertainty are not new. In the 19 and 20 centuries there were also these concerns. The introduction of the car, electricity, and the telephone caused a lot of uproar.

First Test Drive of the Tesla Model 3 Performance: A Thrilling, Modern Marvel

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology

And this is guilt-free hooning since I'll recover, going downhill, most energy expended going up. Give her the spurs, Moon Flower. The Model 3's uncanny stability while cornering is mostly the product of its lithium-battery keel; but Tesla didn't skimp on the suspension bits: upper and lower A arms (aluminum and steel) with virtual steer axis geometry, twin-tube coilovers and anti-roll bar in front; in the rear, a multi-link geometry, also with twin-tube shocks and anti-roll bar. For now the hottest tires available are the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, which are nice all-rounders but not particularly grippy. I'm no financial analyst, but I do know cars.

#artificialintelligence

But scientists are concerned about the consequences of robots being able to identify and kill people without human oversight. Demis Hassabis at Google DeepMind and founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, are among 2,400 people who signed the pledge which aims to discourage governments from constructing killer AI.

Cracked iPhone screens could become thing of the past thanks to glass breakthrough

The Independent

Dropping your phone might be about to become slightly less painful. Gorilla Glass – which makes the glass for just about every premium phone – has been upgraded and so newer phones should be far less likely to smash. Manufacturer Corning claims the new glass is twice as likely to survive drops as its predecessor. It can also can survive 15 drops from 1m in height onto rough surfaces, it claimed. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.


Rise Of The Machines: Understanding The Autonomy Levels Of Self-Driving Cars

Forbes Technology

Automakers are moving at a frenzied pace to add more and more intelligence to their vehicles. However, as cars get smarter and smarter consumers struggle to understand the latest innovations. To help eliminate some of the confusion, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International has developed a scale to describe the six different levels of automation for self-driving cars. These are the cars we all know and love. The driver actually steps on the gas to go faster, steps on the brake to slow down and uses the steering wheel to turn.

Samsung is set to become the latest technology giant to vie for a place in your living room with a voice-enabled smart speaker, following similar efforts from Amazon, Apple and Google. The smart speaker is anticipated to cost around $300, making it considerably more expensive than the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices, but still cheaper than Apple's $349 HomePod. To justify this price, it will market the speaker as a high-end music player with innovative features like sound shifting, whereby the direction of the audio will be beamed at the person speaking to the device.
