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) …
Here's what you need to know as you start your day ... Biden town hall on CNN blasted for too many'softball' questions CNN hosted a Joe Biden town hall event at a Pennsylvania baseball stadium Thursday night, but critics said many of the questions made it seem the night's game was softball instead. The evening differed sharply from the grilling President Trump took during ABC News' town hall program two nights earlier, they said. "In the first moments, the contrast between what Trump was asked and what Biden is being asked is striking," Politico columnist Jeff Greenfield tweeted, later writing. "Biden is doing very well, yes. But this is not exactly getting him ready to face tough questions from a Chris Wallace or Jake Tapper (should he decide to do so)."
Eric Trump shares his expectation for debates between his father and Joe Biden on'Hannity.' This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," August 6, 2020. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Welcome to "Hannity." The left is getting very desperate and breaking tonight, New York's liberal attorney general trying to dissolve the National Rifle Association with a new lawsuit. Uh-huh, sounds like weird timing to me. So, is the state of New York using taxpayer money to interfere in the 2020 election? And we'll explain -- I think there are other priorities the state should be concerned about, like safety and the lives of its citizens. Their hysteria, their usual slander all ratcheting up because Democrats have nothing positive to run on. And this is now a fact -- Joe Biden is a disaster. He looks extremely weak, even from his basement bunker, with the lightest possible schedule of any presidential candidate in history. He is struggling and struggling big time. What a whopper a day, we will call it, today. He's just, you know, poking his head up for an hour or two out of a comfort of his own home, and yet he cannot hold it together. So far, this week has been an unmitigated disaster. It started yesterday when Biden had this weird, strange, embarrassing public breakdown while touting his cognitive fitness. See if you can understand this and pay very close attention to the words "fitness" at the end of this. INTERVIEWER: But please clarify specifically, have you taken a cognitive test? JOE BIDEN, D-PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?
Biden commonly incoherent and confused. Former Vice President Joe Biden acted inappropriately when a news anchor recently asked whether he should or has taken a cognitive abilities test, Sean Hannity said in his opening monologue Wednesday. "Let's state some facts," the "Hannity" host began. "Biden loses his trend of thought often. He mixes up numbers often. He struggles to remember certain words. At times, he doesn't even know what day of the week it is, what state he is in, and what office he is even running for. "He's experiencing frequent bouts of irritability, anger, confusion," Hannity went on. "I'm not a doctor, I don't know what's going on with Biden, but it's obvious that something is off, very off.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow joins Sean Hannity on'Hannity.' I'm starting to get really scared ... and not of the coronavirus. I'm scared about the loss of liberty people around the world are experiencing as normal life grinds to a halt and we hunker down and keep our distance from each other to stop the spread of this microscopic terror. Three weeks ago you would think I was crazy if I told you that U.S. borders would be closed; many stores, restaurants, bars, and factories would be shut down; office workers would be teleworking from home; millions of children would be out of school; and many of us would be told to stay in our homes as much as possible and only leave when absolutely necessary. If an imaginative scriptwriter pitched a movie with this plot just a few weeks ago he might have been told by a movie studio that the idea was too wild and unbelievable even for a fantasy film.
Fox Nation host Lara Logan and The Hill's Joe Concha break down the coverage. Fox Nation host Lara Logan said Thursday that the American media is largely failing to cover the swath of the Iranian population that is celebrating the death of terror general Qassem Soleimani in an American drone attack last week. Logan appeared on "Hannity" to discuss some media outlets' decision to highlight large public gatherings of mourning throughout Iran. Meanwhile, some hosts have characterized Soleimani as an icon of Iran. "I mean, he was a terrorist," Logan said.
