As recently as this month, top AI experts outside Google questioned whether such a victory could be achieved anytime soon.

Animation of the construction of a fifth-order Bézier curve
Bézier curves are widely used in computer graphics to model smooth curves. As the curve is completely contained in the convex hull of its control points, the points can be graphically displayed and used to manipulate the curve intuitively.

obvious publicity stunt the funniest thing is that people were retweeting like it made sense to them - this could also be a new republican talking point it fits well with their scientific world view

Paradise Engineering

I found this piece of web (hedweb.com) on-line in 2001, after my web friend had directed me to it. It covers the topics not readily discussed in modern social nets, because we seem to be so busy with implementing practical hacks. Although an old site existing since 1998, it is full of interesting thoughts.

The Hedonistic Imperative outlines how genetic engineering and nanotechnology will abolish suffering in all sentient life.

The abolitionist project is hugely ambitious but technically feasible. It is also instrumentally rational and morally urgent. The metabolic pathways of pain and malaise evolved because they served the fitness of our genes in the ancestral environment. They will be replaced by a different sort of neural architecture - a motivational system based on heritable gradients of bliss. States of sublime well-being are destined to become the genetically pre-programmed norm of mental health. It is predicted that the world's last unpleasant experience will be a precisely dateable event.

Two hundred years ago, powerful synthetic pain-killers and surgical anesthetics were unknown. The notion that physical pain could be banished from most people's lives would have seemed absurd. Today most of us in the technically advanced nations take its routine absence for granted. The prospect that what we describe as psychological pain, too, could ever be banished is equally counter-intuitive. The feasibility of its abolition turns its deliberate retention into an issue of social policy and ethical choice.

Microsoft has admitted to something that used to be unthinkable: using Linux to run some of its own operations.
