Los Angeles Times

Two of the technology industry's most powerful leaders are at odds when it comes to artificial intelligence. Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg on Sunday called Musk's dire warnings overblown and described himself as "optimistic." "People who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios -- I don't understand it," Zuckerberg said while taking questions via a Facebook Live broadcast. Musk's electric car company is using the technology to enhance self-driving features in its vehicles.

Inside Microsoft's Plan to Bring AI to its HoloLens Goggles

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft Corp. says it has the answer with a chip design for its HoloLens goggles--an extra AI processor that analyzes what the user sees and hears right there on the device rather than wasting precious microseconds sending the data back to the cloud. "For an autonomous car, you can't afford the time to send it back to the cloud to make the decisions to avoid the crash, to avoid hitting a person. But the rapid development of artificial intelligence has left some traditional chip makers facing real competition for the first time in over a decade. More recently, in an effort to take on Google and Amazon.com Inc. in cloud services, the company used customizable chips known as field programmable gate arrays to unleash its AI prowess on real-world challenges.


Them's fightin' words: Musk hits back at Zuckerberg over AI comments

#artificialintelligence

Tech billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have entered into a public squabble about artificial intelligence in which Musk described the Facebook CEO's knowledge of the field as "limited". Enter Zuckerberg, who on Sunday denounced these types of warnings as "pretty irresponsible". Zuckerberg believes that AI will have much less dystopian applications, and will be responsible for saving lives through disease diagnosis and by powering driverless cars. Writing on his Facebook page, he said: "As I'm here in Africa, I'm deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent."

New electrical technology is driving change, and sophisticated communication infrastructure will lead to even more. Public transportation is a cornerstone of large cities, and strong infrastructure can lead to greater service. Bus routes will become more reliable as real-time location data lets AI-driven systems send out buses where they're needed or hold buses back for greater reliability.
