By December 2015 he co-founded the non-profit research company OpenAI in an effort to democratize AI development and advance the technology to humanity s best benefit.This week, in a conversation at Recode s annual Code Conference, Musk shared a tentative idea for something called neural laces, which he imagines could mitigate the risk of humanity becoming something of a pet to superintelligence.Just as your cortex works symbiotically with your limbic system, this digital layer would work symbiotically with the rest of you.We re already cyborgs, Musk said, echoing the argument that devices like our phones and systems like the Internet grant us superhuman powers in real time.We re IO bound – particularly output bound.The neural lace would, in theory, allow us to connect and communicate digitally to overcome our biological limitations.
Now, Morgan, which rediscovered its love of three wheels in 2011, steps into the future kinda with the EV3, a terrifically eccentric contribution to the auto industry s shift away from internal combustion engine., the EV3 is based on Morgan s standard 3-wheeler, so it still resembles an overturned bathtub.The interior is sparse but classy, with its gear switch between the speedometer and a range indicator.The single, offset headlight it adds to the overall asymmetry sits above brass cooling fins that channel air to the 20-kilowatt hour lithium ion battery.It all weighs less than 1,100 pounds and tops out north of 90 mph.Yes, three-wheeled cars tend to be unstable, but Morgan doesn t cater to those concerned with practicality.

Update: A Snapdragon 830 processor and a VR-ready 4K screen are both likely fits for the Samsung Galaxy S8.QHD, as we have on the Samsung Galaxy S7, is more than sharp enough for using it as a phone but it's not quite up to scratch for VR, so it's likely Samsung will push the resolution up for the Samsung Galaxy S8, perhaps as high as 4K.Or maybe it will focus on making the phone thinner.Samsung Galaxy S8 camera and batterySamsung is said to be working on a new camera, which will be between 18 and 24MP and have a wide f/1.4 aperture, where the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a narrower f/1.7 one.Certainly a boost on the 4GB found in the Samsung Galaxy S7 is likely.But when you consider that many high-end Chinese phones and even fairly big name handsets like the OnePlus 2 launched for far cheaper, it's hard not to wish it was a little more affordable.
The Joint Committee on Human Rights has struck a conciliatory note on the proposed Investigatory Powers Bill IP Bill in a new report, claiming that bulk data collection is not incompatible with the right to privacy.The committee, chaired by former acting Labour leader Harriet Harman, welcomed the introduction of a formal bill as a "significant step forward in human rights terms" as it would provide a clear legal basis for the powers that are already used.The IP Bill, sometimes labelled with the derogatory term 'Snoopers Charter', is intended to provide the UK Government with new abilities to legally conduct surveillance on citizens, including tracking online activity.The Government claims that the new powers will help it prevent terrorist attacks.Theresa May recently agreed to a review on the proposed bill, which will be led by the government's reviewer of anti-terrorism legislation, David Anderson.Overall the Bill has attracted significant criticism, including from the Intelligence and Security Committee, particularly over a lack of clarity in the definitions included in the text.
Tesla boss and SpaceX founder Elon Musk knows something the rest of us don t: we don t actually exist.In fact, Musk says the chances that we re not just pieces of code in a futuristic computer simulation are one in billions.There s good news though: if you ever find yourself in a hot tub with Musk, he definitely won t bring up his simulation theory because his brother won t let him.You have a digital version of yourself, a partial version of yourself online in the form of your emails, your social media, and all the things that you do.You have more power than the president of the United States had 20 years ago, Musk said.Musk is among of a small number of people who are directly helping shape the future of our civilization — whether or not that civilization exists only inside a computer — and he always has plenty of interesting and important things to say.
After making a bold adjustment to Tesla Motors outlook, saying the company could produce 500,000 cars annually by 2018, Musk now says that he says SpaceX may be able to have people on Mars by 2025.More specifically, he expects to launch a manned mission to Mars in 2024, which would arrive in 2025.He made the comments at Vox Media s Code Conference.But SpaceX has also managed to land several of its rockets, and it hopes to re-use those rockets in the next few months, he said.This will be a very big rocket.Musk said that in September this year, he s going to present the architecture for Mars colonization, and what it would require in order to transport a large number of people and a large amount of hardware to Mars.
Tinder users in the U.S. have been enjoying the company s Swipe the Vote initiative, where they can learn more about the 2016 presidential candidates and the important issues gripping the country.Edition wants to help people understand the European Union referendum, and the whole Brexit — a combination of the words Britain and exit — phenomenon.Once you finish the survey and find out if your knowledge is that of a commoner or king, you can share your results, learn more about the issues, and seamlessly register to vote.Tinder s original Swipe the Vote feature for U.S. users allowed people to swipe left or right on popular issues of the day — the results would match people with relevant presidential candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders.It also allowed people to register to vote for the fall presidential election, thanks to a partnership with Rock the Vote.Edition comes days ahead of the voter registration deadline on June 7, so be sure to take part if you haven t registered yet.
The research, which encompassed some 1,850 customers across North America, Europe and Asia, found that 92% were using SSDs now, but the number reporting failures had grown.Almost four in 10 – 38% of respondents – said they had encountered a failure with an SSD.With hard drives, a bad motor or scratch in the platter can cause failure.Because there are no moving parts in SSDs, general electric failure or wear levelling failure are more common."Error evidenceEarlier this year, research from Google found that compared to hard disks, SSDs had a significantly lower replacement rate, but on the other hand, they also experienced a considerably higher rate of uncorrectable errors.SSHD adoption is now at 23%, although helium drives are still only at 3% in terms of their global uptake.
ARM-based chips dominate smartphone and tablets, but the new chips from Cavium and Marvell show the processors are maturing quickly for use in servers.But ARM server chips are becoming more competitive with support for DDR4 memory and the latest I/O and networking technologies.Despite struggling for years, ARM server chip makers are holding on to create alternatives for Intel's Xeon chips, while hoping the market for their products becomes viable.In a research note issued Tuesday, IDC said ARM server chip makers will start gaining traction next year.Marvell's new Armada 7000 and 8000 family of ARM-based chips don't provide the high levels of performance delivered by Cavium's ThunderX2, but they are aimed at smaller home office deployments.Marvell did not respond to comment on shipment dates.
Yet, it was an eight-year-old Indian gaming developer who wowed him with his vision of balancing technology and environmental sustainability.Mumbai-based student, Medansh Mehta, presented his app Let There Be Light during a meeting between Nadella and student developers from India.The boy left Nadella so impressed that the Microsoft CEO later mentioned him in a keynote speech.His game Let there be light focuses on balancing development and the environment.Players have to build cities by creating factories and farms, but also focus on the environment and air quality.You are already ambitious beyond being the next CEO, Nadella replied.
The results indicate that users enjoy a more flexible experience when buying features inside an app rather than paying for an app that may not have all the features they want.Consumers spent an average of $9.20 on in-app purchases, compared to $7.40 for purchasing mobile apps.Those ages 35 to 44 had an even split between the two spending categories.The overwhelming majority of app revenue comes from gaming apps, which accounted for 85% of the $34.8 billion global app market in 2015, according to App Annie.Over the past eight years, developers have flocked to create mobile games as smartphones became a mainstream consumer device.While mobile gaming apps using an up-front paid downloading model, wherein consumers paid a typically nominal fee to download an app, flourished in the early days of mobile gaming, the deluge of apps led to a change in monetization strategy.More apps started using the free-to-play F2P model, wherein a consumer can download an app for free, and is then later monetized either via in-app purchases or in-app advertising.Since that transition, most consumers have been conditioned to expect quality mobile gaming apps for little or no cost.Jessica Smith, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed report on mobile gaming that examines how the mobile gaming market has been affected by the transition to F2P monetization.It also takes a close look at how saturation in the mobile gaming category, combined with the standard F2P model, has led to numerous issues for developers, including spiking marketing costs, the premium on acquiring users who will spend heavily within a game called whales , and the impact that it's having on mobile gamers who do not spend in-app.This has resulted in game mechanics that optimize the amount of money being spent by this small user group, which can often alienate the large swath of users who do not spend money in-app.There are numerous new solutions coming to market that offer developers and publishing houses a diverse selection of monetization models which combine in-app purchases with other methods.In full, the report:Sizes up the current mobile gaming app market and its future growth trajectory.Examines the role of free-to-play F2P games in the greater mobile gaming ecosystem.Identifies the major threats and opportunities inherent in the current mobile gaming market and in peripheral markets such as marketing.Explains the current monetization conundrum wherein the vast majority of revenue comes abysmally small segments of mobile gamers.Presents new approaches and solutions that can help mobile gaming apps monetize without alienating swaths of mobile gamers.To get your copy of this invaluable guide, choose one of these options:Subscribe to an ALL-ACCESS Membership with BI Intelligence and gain immediate access to this report AND over 100 other expertly researched deep-dive reports, subscriptions to all of our daily newsletters, and much more.
Suomen lippu on nyt todella kilpailukykyinen.Tonnistoverouudistus muutama vuosi sitten on iskenyt kultasuoneen – jos lainlaatija halusi, että Suomessa operoivat varustamot ajaisivat laivojaan kotimaan lipun alla.Suomen alusrekisterissä on jo yli 700 varsinaista kauppalaivaa, noin 1,7 miljoonaa bruttotonnia, eikä Suomen lipun vetovoima näytä laantuvan.Suomen Varustamot ry:n toimitusjohtaja Olof Widén kertoo selkeän esimerkin Suomen tonnistoverotuksen kilpailukyvystä.Kaikki uudislaivat on pantu suoraan Suomen lipun alle.Ainakin siksi, että kansainvälisen merenkulkujärjestön IMO:n päätöksissä niillä on eniten äänivaltaa, keillä on eniten laivoja.

The IT distie titan reported group sales of $6bn, up one per cent year-on-year for Q1 ended 30 April; revenues in the Americas and Europe were up two and one per cent respectively to $2.4bn and $3.6bn.The Americas pursued the right mix of business, gained select market share and deselected less profitable business .The exec said the US team has moved technical and field sales folk to higher growth areas of cloud, supply chain and unspecified services.Tech Data's growth in Europe during recent quarter was in the mid-single digit range, so the latest numbers represent a slowdown.Operating expenses jumped to $246m from $209m but this was almost entirely related to a $38.5m settlement from LCD vendors for price fixing that was paid to Tech Data in Q1 of fiscal 15.This caused a drop in operating profits, which slipped to $52.5m from $81.9m.
MinusRelativt låg känslighet gör att du bör ha en kraftig förstärkare för att högtalarna ska visa sig från sin bästa sida.Without further ado fick Jones i uppgift att konstruera en splitter ny högtalarserie på en extra plånboksvänlig nivå.Den något mörkare klangkaraktären i Debut B5 kan påminna en smula om en del Pioneer-högtalare som samme mr. Jones har haft med att göra.Foto: ElacEntusiasm och spelglädjeVid det här laget skulle jag i normala fall ha varit ganska så nöjd över en högtalare i den här prisklassen och kunde ha avslutat testet här och nu.Men jag blev nyfiken och ville höra mer.Som fan av allt inom hårtslående, bastung musik – såväl metal, techno och house som nyare elektronisk musik och rap/R – uppskattar jag högtalare som kan spela högt och rent, och återge elbas, synth och så vidare med ordentlig dynamik.
But could there be a fifth force still waiting to be discovered?Nature News reports that a team of physicists led by Attila Krasznahorkay of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences published a rather provocative paper late last year in Physical Review Letters pre-print version available here claiming that a strange radioactive decay anomaly is indicative of an unknown fundamental force.Speculation about this elusive fifth force has existed for years, partly driven by the inability of the standard model of particle physics to explain dark matter — a hypothetical form of matter that comprises a huge portion of the mass and energy in the observable universe.When the protons smashed against the lithium at the precise angle of 140 degrees, more electrons and positrons poured out than expected.As the Nature News article points out, there s a decent mix of scepticism and excitement about the experimental results.Researchers at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and other groups in the United States and Europe are now working on the problem, and expect to confirm or invalidate the Hungarian experimental results in about a year.
