I Bow In Utter Obedience to Our Mecha Overlords

If the tree-climbing, super-fast, ultra-strong creations of Boston Dynamics have not yet taught you the right subservience protocols for long-term survival this nunchuck-wielding robot ought to seal the deal fer ya'll!

Think robots won't hurt us? I hope you have Chuck Norris to protect you. ;) Researchers just trained a robot to use nunchucks using trial and error

A Neuromorphic Chip That Will Learn On the Fly

Intel is bringing out a chip that will learn and restructure its architecture on the fly making it possible to accelerate machine learning capabilities which means that artificial intelligence gains will increase exponentially. Will that make it possible to make us obsolete that much sooner? Or will we be able to offload the entire responsibility of being us to machines while we bask forever in our playgrounds of choice? It will be interesting to see just what happens now.

You cannot divorce the individual from the moment nor the moment from the need it generates.

Failing Facebook

The alliteration works way better with Facebook than it does with the NYT (Trump could learn a thing or two from it) plus with Facebook it's actually true. Engagement is dropping.

Did Google Act Like A Bully?

Maybe. Really, that's immaterial here (obviously Google says it didn't). What is key is that when a company is as large as Google ans commands as much power as it does there is a specific dynamic that guides its behavior that is not completely of its own making.

It's a little like having a tank on the road. Making it swerve round potholes is possible but it requires so much effort that it is unreasonable, unless of course you grade the tank driver's driving effort the same way as every other motorist's by finding the means to draw attention to it.

Transparency and accountability are relatively new tools in the way we understand them in the social media age. Google is not exempt from scrutiny.

This is what it took to break the Internet in Japan...

The answer? Google. By mistake of course, and only for a few hours, but the incident highlights the fragility of our connectivity.
