A new device developed at Michigan State University is the latest take on this problem, consisting of an energy-producing film-like system that increases its output when folded into up into a smaller package.

Track-only club racing Mustang joins the paddock

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 12:32:59 +0000

(image)

Even though modern performance cars are much more powerful than sports cars from 10 years ago, it's getting more and more difficult to actually use them on the road. The cost of gas, more traffic and strict speed enforcement mean an increasing number of enthusiasts are heading to the track to get their kicks. The new Ford Mustang FP350S strips away all concession to comfort and road legal requirements for a proper on-the-track racing experience.

One Big Question: How do we manage the downside risks of AI?

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 08:17:05 +0000

(image)

If Hollywood is to be believed, the development of superintelligent artificial intelligence will spell the end of civilization as we know it and spark an unwinnable war between man and machine. It doesn't make for nearly as exciting entertainment, but AI also offers tremendous upside, from the potential to deliver customized tutelage to everyone, to improving disease diagnosis and treatment, to eradicating poverty. Although it is such beneficial outcomes that AI researchers are focused on, the dystopian vision portrayed in so much science fiction is also a real possibility. At the recent Singularity University New Zealand Summit we talked with Neil Jacobstein, the former president and current chair of the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Track at SU, about how the outcomes feared by so many can be avoided.
