If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Misty Loggins says respect and patience played a huge part in bagging a mature buck. These hunters risked eating their tags, sat in the same stands for hundreds of hours, and put their jobs and families on hold -- all for that one deer. Buck: "Jackson," a 9½-year-old, 150-class typical Hunter: Misty Loggins, country artist and Bowtech ambassador** Location: Southwestern West Virginia Date of Kill: Dec. 29, 2015 Before the season started, my hunting partner and cameraman Jeremy Starks showed me a trail-cam picture of this beautiful 9½year-old buck -- and I knew. We had 10 other shooters on that property, all over 150. But this one was mine.
YANGON, Myanmar – Myanmar authorities have charged two foreign journalists, a local freelancer who works as an interpreter and their driver for allegedly flying drones illegally over and around the government's parliament buildings, police said Sunday. Mok Choy Lin, a Malaysian, and Lau Hon Meng, a Singaporean, journalists for Turkish Radio and Television, were detained along with their local interpreter and freelance journalist Aung Naing Soe after flying drones over the parliament building on Friday, police said. The four were charged under the Export and Import Law and face up to three years in prison if found guilty, police said, adding that a trial would begin at the end of a 15-day remand. Police officer San Aung said the drone was imported without permission. The detained journalists and driver have not been allowed to see family members since the arrest on Friday, one of the family members said.

The Supreme Court expressed sympathy Tuesday for the family of a Mexican teenager fatally shot from across the U.S.-Mexico line by a Border Patrol agent, but struggled to reach consensus on whether foreign nationals – like the teen's relatives – can sue in American courts. The divisions were on display during oral arguments for what has become a closely watched case, amid an escalating political debate in Washington over border security. The arguments were held the same day the Department of Homeland Security released new directives on immigration enforcement, and after a lower federal court blocked a separate executive action from President Trump on immigration and refugee restrictions. Apart from renewed interest in the court's consideration of immigration disputes, the case heard Tuesday also could have implications for other U.S. government actions taken overseas -- including military drone strikes against suspected terrorists, and electronic surveillance over the Internet. In the current dispute, 15-year-old Sergio Hernandez was just steps from the border on Mexican soil when he was killed in 2010 by Jesus Mesa Jr., an agent standing on the American side in El Paso, Texas.
If Zoe Dewaghe wants ice cream for breakfast, she gets ice cream for breakfast. There's a different set of rules for her younger brother, Zach: He gets oatmeal instead. That's because five-year-old Zoe Dewaghe has a rare genetic disease called Sanfilippo syndrome. She'll gradually lose the ability to speak, to move, to recognize her surroundings. Most patients don't live into adulthood.
In her early 20s, Eriksson began reading about scientists attempting to create organs from stem cells and was told about the womb transplant research being pursued by Brannstrom. "But maybe now there was a small, small chance for me." The night before her and her mother's operations, Eriksson said, was the first time that she was genuinely afraid, mostly because her mother was terrified of the anesthesia. Brannstrom's team transferred a single embryo into her womb, which Eriksson and Chrysong had created during in-vitro fertilization.
A DNA test has confirmed that Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a U.S. drone strike, Pakistan's interior ministry said Sunday, as the family of a driver killed in the strike sought legal action. A DNA sample from one of the men killed in the U.S. drone attack was successfully matched with a close relative of Mansour, the interior ministry statement said. American and Afghan officials had already confirmed Mansour's death, but Islamabad had declined to do so before the DNA test results. Mansour had entered Pakistan from Iran using a false name and fake Pakistani identity documents on May 21, when his car was hit by the U.S. missile. On Sunday, the family of his driver -- identified as Mohammed Azam -- filed a police case against unknown U.S. officials, seeking to press murder charges against them, police officer Abdul Wakil Mengal said.
