Safe AI. Terminator rejoices +Luis SAIZ GIMENO​
+Christopher Olah and +Dario Amodei from the Google Brain team, along with their collaborators Jacob Steinhart (Stanford), Paul Christiano (Berkeley), John Schulman (Open AI), and Dan Mané (Google Brain) have put together a very nice paper that discusses some technical problems in building safe AI systems. Rather than much of the rhetoric that we've seen recently about fears around AI systems, this manuscript is nice in that it actually frames things in terms of real technical challenges and some research directions to explore in solving them.

I'm also excited to see this topic being addressed openly, in a collaboration across many different institutions.

Actual paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.06565

El amigo Murray Gell-Mann, Nobel por el descubrimiento de los Quarks, se anima a aplicar sus conocimientos de física teórica para reformular los fundamentos básicos de las Ciencias Económicas y en concreto, su aplicación al cálculo de riesgos.

Es un poco denso, pero creo que aquí hay materia de estudio interesante para nuestros modelos económicos..

Si alguien quiere bajar a más detalle (mucho más duro) aquí está el paper original:

Estaba yo viendo en paralelo el lanzamiento de SpaceX de esta tarde (pantalla de la izquierda emisión de la NASA, pantalla de la derecha, la de los chicos de Elon Munsk) cuando he visto la diferencia clara de edad y de ambiente: A ninguno de los de melena plateada de la izquierda se les habría ocurrido asistir al lanzamiento disfrazado del Capitán América :-D

La razón: La edad? el respeto?... NO, simplemente que son burócratas!

Google OpenSources its Containers manager. Great news for the Cloud world.

If you have a look at the very GitHub project page (https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/kubernetes) you'll get as surprised as me about the claim "Kubernetes can run anywhere!". Will it be so among their close competitors too?

Besides I agree on NFC thoughts, embracing Bitcoin will hurt their position with worldwide regulators. With this sentence PayPal has made it harder to get allowed by the system to sell financial products, because BitCoin is not good or bad, it is out of the system. There's no Schrödinger Bank, in and out of the system at once.

It's so simple we're still still amazed about it's potential to boost multi-cloud concept.
We've opensourced Hydra, a framework to allow active-active multi-cloud service provisioning. The key point are client-side load balancing, service discovery and uber-fault-tolerance:

Hydra servers run in each cloud, accepting technical and functional load info. It will suggest from server-side a ready-for-you server (worker) list to provide a given service.

Client-side consumers will do the calls among the list in its preferred algorithm (shuffle, round-robin, always first and next if failure...). Hydra itself  is self managed as another service.

Why running all your processes in one single Cloud? Hydra could become a "Process Liberation Army" in the Cloud ecosystem.

There were some delayed membership acceptances because I'm on holidays. Everyone is welcome... sooner or later :-D

Extremely interesting approach of Goldman-Sachs to a MongoDB private cloud. I suggest you all to dig from slide 6 to 15, mainly in the process definition. Enjoy.

The three "S" that are the existence reason of any cloud:

Speed - Scale - Survive

Nowadays Cloud Computing is the only way to achieve all of them at once.
