Re: Taking a look at current news headlines

Without that motivation to get out and do anything, AI will probably slack off and watch cat videos all day.

If we are unlucky it may find cats more amusing than people.

motivation

The problem with AI is that we need to give it some motivation.

Animals have built in 'hard' motivations (survive, breed) but AI will need to be given them. We should think very carefully about them. There are also softer motivations (like care for relatives and friends).

I sincerely hope that breeding will not be one.

Icelandic brewers knock up whale 'nad beer

WTF?

Where is Duke Albert of Bavaria when you need him

What about a modern Reinheitsgebot:

"Furthermore, we wish to emphasize that in future in all cities, markets and in the country, the only ingredients used for the brewing of beer must be Barley, Hops and Water. Whosoever knowingly disregards or transgresses upon this ordinance, shall be punished by the Court authorities' confiscating such barrels of beer, without fail."

I am willing to stretch the point for Lambic and Geuze (with wheat) , but smoked whale??

Re: mobile phones in poor countries

Similar in South Africa

Only the well-off have contract phones; many poorer people have prepaid contract-free phones. There are several to choose from at less that ZAR200 (about $17).

Re: Deep question with more than one mystery

Richard Feynman considered antimatter as matter moving backwards in time.

This idea could explain the relative lack of antimatter in this universe.
