Will artificial intelligence drive the human race off a cliff? Scientists debate the future of smart, self-aware robots and how they could help and harm us. http://bit.ly/1C62002 #AI   #robot   #robotics  
Artificial intelligence and machine learning have the potential to help mankind, but we need to focus on policies to prevent the technology from one day killing us all.

How to prep, in 7 steps or less, for Google's big #mobile search change coming on April 21. http://www.computerworld.com/article/2908295/how-to-prep-in-7-steps-for-googles-mobile-search-change.html #search #Google 
With Google about to make a change that will affect how websites are ranked in its mobile search results, now is the time for companies to make sure their websites don't sink to the bottom of the pile.

For the first time, a telepresence #robot & networked tablets are headed to an Ebola Treatment Unit in West Africa to fight the deadly #Ebola outbreak. The technology will take doctors and nurses from using paper and pencils to the first shared electronic medical records, enabling them to chronicle progress and for researchers to better work to find treatments. http://bit.ly/1xGrmZy 
The first robot and networked tablets are making their way to an Ebola treatment unit in Liberia, where they will give aid workers their first chance at sharing data about the deadly outbreak.

#Rosetta's comet-studying mission is about more than just sending a robotic spacecraft on a 10-year journey to a frozen mass hurtling through space. The comet likely holds what were the building blocks of our solar system. This mission could give scientists clues about the "origin of us." http://bit.ly/1EIccZH  #JPL #UCBerkeley #Philae
With the European Space Agency's robotic lander now sitting on a comet hurtling around the sun, the real science of the mission has begun.

Are you using Google+, Facebook and Twitter more this year to follow your favorite (or least favorite) politicians and causes for the mid-term elections? If you are, you're not alone, especially if you're in your 30s and 40s. More Americans are using social networks, and their smartphones, to stay up-to-date politically. http://bit.ly/1yRIRc5
With the mid-term elections on Tuesday, Americans are increasingly using social networks and their cell phones to learn about the candidates and the issues.

Afraid scientists will create a Terminator-like robot or the "toasters" from Battlestar Galactica that will take over the world and wipe out humans? High-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk says artificial intelligence research is like "summoning the demon." And now some of the top AI researchers in the country say he may not be so crazy. Really? http://bit.ly/1sGcM1c +Worcester Polytechnic Institute, +UC Berkeley, +Carnegie Mellon University, and +caltech 
High-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk made headlines when he said artificial intelligence research is a danger to humanity, but researchers from some of the top U.S. universities say he's not so far off the mark.

With so much talk about artificial intelligence and robots overtaking humanity, here's a look at separating science fact from science fiction when it comes to ‪#‎robotics‬ and ‪#‎autonomous‬ machines. http://bit.ly/1IwP3ZM (And check out Keith Shaw's cool video...)@UCLA @WPI +NASA

#Google is making a major change to its mobile search algorithm on April 21. Here's what that change is going to mean to you. http://bit.ly/1c87GKR #mobile #search
It's looking to reward mobile-friendly sites with search change; others will see dip in rankings

I was on the radio with @briangongol the other night, talking about the fears  (real or imagined) around artificial intelligence. It was pretty fun. Check us out. http://bit.ly/1Htgczp #AI

Robotic spiders in space! No, this isn't a new sic-fi movie. Researchers, working under contract for #NASA, are building a platform, which will include 3D printers and robotic spiders, to build satellites and spacecraft in orbit around Earth. http://bit.ly/11fc8lU  #3dprinting
By 2030, when the U.S. government or a company wants a new satellite in orbit, a robotic spider might build it in space.

The #Google shakeup continues: Andy Rubin is out. Is this a big loss for Google? And how will this affect the company's robotics effort? http://bit.ly/1tmmRWn  @Arubin#Android #robotics
The corporate shakeup at Google is continuing; Andy Rubin, the former head of the company’s Android business and the current head of its robotics arm, is leaving.

Researchers report breakthrough that could push quantum computing toward a becoming a reality. Wrapping quantum bits in silicon makes them more accurate, last long enough to be really useful and easier to manufacture. That could could bring us computers that will tackle cures for cancer and Alzheimer's, and help scientists find Earth-like planets that hold life. http://bit.ly/1vTBeCm ‪#‎quantum‬ ‪#‎WPI‬
Researchers in Australia have developed silicon-wrapped quantum technology that could solve problems that have held back the development of the ultrafast computers.

I'm a reporter for Computerworld.
Introduction
I live in Maine and write for Computerworld I cover social networking -- Google+, Facebook, Twitter. I also cover search, like Microsoft Bing and Google. Add to that computer chips, laptops, desktops, ultrabooks and companies like Intel, AMD, Lenovo and Dell. I also write a lot about emerging technology, like robotics, nanotech and NASA. You gotta love Mars and robots in space!
