Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them.If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.In a recent issue of The New Yorker, a cartoon depicts a psychiatric patient lying on a couch with his therapist sitting behind him.It’s why Uber, the poster firm for Silicon Valley bad behavior, would think it’s okay to greyball—that is, blackball someone temporarily or provisionally—public officials who were investigating the company.Thanks to the 2010 movie The Social Network, thousands of dollar-signs-in-their-eyes founders are walking around thinking a billion dollars is “cool,” thus turning them into lucrepaths, people who are pathologically driven to make money.And once they get even a taste of that wealth (usually after the first round of seed funding), many of them pull out their bully wallet, where they use the money to wield unfair or unethical influence.

Trent Reznor, the genius behind Nine Inch Nails, once hoped that people would choose to pay for music if they knew the money was going directly to the artist.That notion was shattered by an experience he had when he put his own money on the line on a record he made with New York rapper Saul Williams in 2007.“I wanted to test out a simple scenario,” Reznor explained in an interview with Vulture.“It went something like this: To my database of people, we sent out a message saying, ‘Here’s a collaborative album I’ve worked on for X amount of time with Saul.I know you can steal it anywhere you want anyway.All I want in return is your email address.

SPECTRE, a new open-source software package, simplifies the complex business of creating phylogenetic networks and trees.Visual representations of datasets are valuable for analysing the interrelatedness of species and for presenting findings for publication.However, networks in particular demand complex bioinformatics that challenges software developers and evolutionary biologists alike.However, so far there is a lack of high-quality open source software making it harder to reuse and manipulate code for new tools and projects.Now SPECTRE makes the source code of popular programs openly available, enabling researchers to adapt code to their own needs.Software developers can also use parts of the code as building blocks for creating new methods.

When you’re a disruptor, you’re going to make waves – whether you’re delivering goods by drone, renting out that urban apartment, or launching an autonomous ride-share.And as you do so, you’ll inevitably bump up against regulations, bending them and testing them as you push the envelope with your technology.For any startup looking to break through in a regulated or soon-to-be regulated environment, it’s important to remember that new technologies are also new to regulators.With that mind, here are five rules for how you can work with regulators while helping your company and – most importantly – your customers.When Tesla announced it was the first to offer self-driving capabilities in all of its electric vehicles, that was a prime example of setting the par for the course.That doesn’t necessarily work for everyone, but sometimes regulators need you to take action so they have something they can react to.

Almost every other movie these days has a virtual reality tie in.It’s almost unavoidable considering how popular VR is.That’s especially true if the film in question is fantasy or, better yet, sci-fi.With the San Diego Comic Con kicking into full gear this week, there is no better time to promote such virtual reality experiences.Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to a sci-fi cult classic, is no different, and Oculus is only too happy to bring Gear VR owners an appetizer of what’s to come later this year.The original Blade Runner was never really heavy on the visual effects.

The $35,000 Tesla Model 3 recently made its first appearance off the production line.Inside the steel and aluminum body of the battery-powered car are five features you won’t want to miss.Last year, Tesla introduced a new hardware collection, dubbed Autopilot, in the current models.This hardware includes eight cameras, a radar unit, a set of all-around-the-car ultrasonic sensors, and an Nvidia Drive PX2 computer.As Tesla continues taking deposits to reserve the electric car, they charge an additional $3,000 for the option notably named Self-Driving Capabilities.The software has not been released to explain the functions available, but we can safely guess it means more automated driving.

Amazon is today introducing a new feature called Amazon Pay Places, that allows customers to pay for in-store and order ahead shopping experiences using their Amazon app.The first implementation of Pay Places involves a partnership with the TGI Friday’s restaurant chain, but we understand this feature will be supported in more in-store and physical world applications in the future.It’s also not broadly available across the restaurant’s chains in the U.S. Only Amazon customers in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Richmond, Virginia, and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania are able to take advantage of the feature at present.To access Amazon Pay Places, you’ll need the Amazon mobile app.Once launched, tap on the drop-down menu to access the app’s navigation, then tap on “Programs & Features.”Amazon Pay Places will be available in this section, in supported markets.

Microsoft and Baidu are hooking up on autonomous car tech, with the Seattle software giant playing cloud host to the Chinese behemoth’s self-driving ambitions.The collaboration will see Microsoft Azure made the home for the Apollo alliance, Baidu’s attempt to make autonomous driving an open platform.Importantly, it gives Apollo some degree of legitimacy outside of Baidu‘s home turf.Launched back in April, Apollo is Baidu’s vision of self-driving technologies not just for one automaker, but spread across an industry.Positioned as the “Android” of autonomous vehicles, the system includes hardware including sensors and cameras, the software to weave the data from those sensors into something meaningful for a driverless car, and cloud data services so that such cars can intercommunicate and more.Most importantly, it would be offered for the most part as open source.

Elon Musk is most definitely not the first person to want to augment the human brain’s capabilities with computers – scientists around the world have been experimenting with brain-computer interfaces for some years now.Today, it’s already possible to mentally control prosthetic limbs, helping the disabled make their way in the world.Both wheelchairs and drones have been mind-controlled and you can even control what you watch with your mind these days!Now, using the existing technology of electroencephalography (EEG) – an interface that measures brain signals – neurologists at the University of Washington have created what they've christened the Encephalophone.Simply put, the Encephalophone is a cap-like device that collects brain signals and transforms them into musical notes that get played on a paired-up synthesizer.The research on this device has been published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience and the team behind it hopes it will one day be used to help patients with motor-neuron disabilities.
