I guess the system works by forcing people with 3rd, 4th, etc. choices to coalesce with one of the top two or together. It is not clear how the swarm steers away from a decision which at first is in the majority, but is suboptimal. How does the minority convince the majority?

Agroup of people login to a UNU forum through their smartphones or computers. At the start of each decision, all participants are simultaneously presented with a question and a set of possible answers. Each participant has control of a graphical magnet that they can move about the screen to drag a puck to the answer they think is correct. The puck can only fall on one answer, and the group has 60 seconds to collectively come to a decision that best suits them all. The idea is that rather than dividing groups in the way that a poll would, UNU taps into the collective knowledge and intuition of the group to give a unified voice. The key is compromise.

I used to beat Demis at go, so he went out and built an AI programme to beat everyone. ;-)
An artificial intelligence program developed by Google beats Europe's top Go player about a decade earlier than had been expected.

As in many enterprise, going from 80% to 100% is extremely hard. Many AI projects hit a wall at 70-80% accuracy; in some cases the present day solution is interface AI with humans, but it is not always possible.
 
We're used to computers being consistent and reliable. But as we build more and more complicated machine learning systems to do more and more things that people used to do, they become less consistent and less reliable. Businesses need to figure out how to integrate unreliable systems into their workflow to take advantage of machine learning.

"Diversity works by promoting hard work and creativity"

The influx of refugees is a golden opportunity for Europe
Being around people who are different from us makes us more creative, more diligent and harder-working

For the UK as a whole the equivalent is about 1 per 100000. Other European nations are similar. http://www.citizensreportuk.org/reports/murders-fatal-violence-uk.html

Nobody doubts that Putin is behind the murders of many critics and opponents, but the naivety of Litvinenko and the amateurishness of MI6 is puzzling.

Of course, people are reading too much into the first letters of each line; it was purely accidental!

1. Better results with much deeper networks, up to 150 layers deep. Inefficiency overcome by skipping algorithms, i.e. layers skipped when not needed.
2. AI is becoming a hardware challenge more than a software one
