Long known to be a bit of a cynic in regards to artificial intelligence, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk decided to do what he does best and put his wealth to good use.Along with Y Combinator president Sam Altman, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, and Musk’s PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, Musk hopes that this donation will to allow OpenAI to function freely without worrying about generating a financial return.In the company’s eyes, this fact alone is paramount to it prioritizing a “good outcome” over its own “self-interest.”“As a non-profit, our aim is to build value for everyone rather than shareholders,” OpenAI representatives said in a press release.“Researchers will be strongly encouraged to publish their work, whether as papers, blog posts, or code, and our patents (if any) will be shared with the world.We’ll freely collaborate with others across many institutions and expect to work with companies to research and deploy new technologies.”Despite the $1 billion pledge and celebrity affiliation, it isn’t completely obvious exactly how OpenAI intends to build value or collaborate outside of just plain research.“It’s hard to fathom how much human-level AI could benefit society, and it’s equally hard to imagine how much it could damage society if built or used incorrectly.”In addition to the founders, OpenAI plans on initially functioning with nine world-class research engineers and scientists, headlined by research director and Google Brain Team alum Ilya Sutskever.

Mujjo s stab at the poorly supported touchscreen glove space is the only pair of leather touchscreen gloves worth getting excited about or owning.The gloves are wind and waterproof Ethiopian lambskin, with a magnetic clasp that will make you happy every time you snap it.Of course, you don t really need the clasp because the gloves actually fit.No gross-looking fingertip dots here either.I immediately got my hands in older Mujjo s Single Layered Touchscreen Gloves back when they were first released, and while they were certainly the best I had used at the time, they weren t easy to snap, and they weren t leather.The Leather Touchscreen Gloves fix everything this product category has lacked up to this point, and are an easy recommendation for pretty much anyone.

Apple has announced that it s creating its first app development accelerator in Asia, as the Cupertino company seeks to woo India s engineering community with a dedicated space in which to learn design best-practices for Apple s mobile operating system.Expected to open in Bengaluru in early 2017, the iOS App Design and Development Accelerator will support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India s iOS developer community, according to a press release.India has emerged as a key battleground for the big U.S. tech companies as both Google and Facebook look to tap the burgeoning online population — with varying degrees of success — even though much of the country s 1.3 billion inhabitants remain offline.And earlier this year, Apple confirmed plans to open a new development hub in Hyderabad, India that s expected to eventually house around 4,500 people.Apple s new app accelerator will essentially serve to help developers improve their design and development skills for iOS and will include one-on-one app reviews for developers, as well as support for Apple s programming language, Swift.India is home to one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial iOS development communities in the world, said Apple CEO Tim Cook.With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we re giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world.Bengaluru is a major startup hub in India — an estimated one million people work in the city s technology industry, while more than 40 percent of university graduates in the area specialize in IT or engineering, according to Apple.This isn t the first such center Apple has unveiled — earlier this year, it announced its first iOS App Development Center in Europe, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, Italy.The company also has a similar hub in Brazil.

Both are designed to be primarily voice controlled - Google Home lacks buttons altogether - and to blend into most decor.Inside, there's WiFi along with a speaker and microphone array; Amazon is particularly proud of the seven microphones that give Echo its precise ears, though it's hard to imagine that Google hasn't given across-the-room pickup the same sort of consideration for its device.Unlike Echo, which is music-only, Google Home will support video streaming too: you'll be able to verbally search for a clip, movie, or TV show, and then have it beamed over to a TV with a Chromecast plugged in.Some of the spoils of that were shown off during Google Home's brief demo: answering questions that, I suspect, would've easily stumped Alexa.I enjoy Amazon's virtual assistant, but her ability to muster up solutions is rudimentary: if she can find a Wikipedia entry for it, you're usually good to go, but anything demanding a more intuitive take gets you "I'm sorry, I don't understand the question" at best.It's also data that, though Amazon could try to help you duplicate, it faces a considerable barrier with: people's inherent laziness when it comes to jumping platforms.
