Re: Good I say.
Common sense may never prevail.
Like Einstein said: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

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.
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.

Whosoever knowingly disregards or transgresses upon this ordinance, shall be punished by the Court authorities' confiscating such barrels of beer, without fail."

Re: AID !!
but to be fair a £200m aid budget for a population of 1.25 billion is about 16p a head. Many rich individuals in India could spare that sort of money

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).

The trouble is that you look intelligent.

Re: in my small village in italy
I have only ever seen 3G inside conurbations; how the hell does any telco run 4G inside a tiny italian village?

Re: 30 Months behind bars...
'found' is the crucial part..
Stuff goes out of sight for a long time, but may not be lost, just squirrelled away - like Gaddafi's billions.
