Pretty good: an #AI just wrote a beatles style pop song. It isn't bad. And remember, in 18 months the computer will be twice as good at composing. And 18 months after that, twice again as good
"Daddy's Car" is the first entire pop song composed by artificial intelligence.

Hell no. We could barely agree on something simple like 'autonomous', ' Intelligent' is even harder to define, let alone 'beautiful' (I thought tbat song was total BS, but I wasn't a big Beatles fan...). So let's stick to something we at least seem to agree on. :-)

High-power, cordless #VR sets are coming soon. That will probably be VR and #AR's breakthrough
The experience is much better when you’re not tethered to a computer.

Scientists just created the first #3D map of a fruit fly's #brain network. It took a lot of work. But of course this too will get easier. Fast
Mapping the 3-D network structure of a fly’s brain is a major step forward. But it took 1,700 person-hours to complete, meaning that human labor will be a significant bottleneck for future advances.

Interesting interview with Elon #Musk by Y-combinator. He wants to achieve a human-AI symbiosis. That's more like it Elon ;-) #AI

The new way to make money on the stock market: go short on company's you think are messing up with security
When hackers expose flaws in products, a company’s share price can fall, and traders are getting wise to the pattern.

Oh great. Yet another problem with the JSF (F35). Add it to a loooong list. So glad our government was sure this was the best plane for us
The setback is the latest problem in the tortuous history of the Pentagon's most expensive weapons program.

The technology is being rapidly commercialized, though safety issues have yet to be settled.

Great looking hotel, but with issues. The hotel looks absolutely great, art everywhere. My room was pretty big and had a stocked minibar, rainfall shower and safe. On the down side: the airco was a little loud, the rainfall shower had more than half its holes clogged with calcium (a good scratch with my nails fixed that), and the bed was a little small for my taste (I'm 6'4 1/2") The really bad part: the parking garage. Very narrow, small parking spaces. If you drive a big station car, like I do, arrive early or be prepared for 30 minutes of parking (if you can find a spot big enough (

Had an absolutely excellent meal here. The first course (graved lax) was good, the main course (Duck) was absolutely great and the dessert (brownie and ice cream) was to die for. Not sure about the price, since it was a business diner and I didn't have to pay ;-) The table was too close to the wall though. When someone had to go to the toilet they more or less had to climb over others. The only thing they should improve
