“Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”–Douglas Adams

It appears that Peter Thiel might get his flying car by this time next year.

Robert Heinlein’s 1957 Door into Summer returns throughout to a theme of knowing when it’s “time to railroad.” Loosely speaking this is the idea that one’s success comes as much from historical context as it does from innate ability, hard work, and luck (though much of the latter can be attributed to historical context). 1,534 more words

New Scientist: DeepMind’s neural network teaches AI to reason about the world

New Scientist: DeepMind’s neural network teaches AI to reason about the world. “The world is a confusing place, especially for an AI. But a neural network developed by UK artificial intelligence firm DeepMind that gives computers the ability to understand how different objects are related to each other could help bring it into focus.”
