Yes, even in this case.  You have no idea how I live my life just as I have no idea how you live yours.  It is called the world wide web, people actually live their lives outside of it.


Wrong, I was commenting on the answers you give here that are self-contradictory and therefore I don't need to know how you live.

IBM’s Project Debater is thrilling and terrifying

I saw the future of artificial intelligence, and it was both thrilling and terrifying.

IBM (IBM) on Monday evening demonstrated Project Debater, the first A.I. system capable of intelligently sparring with a human being through debate. Project Debater, which runs off a group of computers in a remote data center, is capable of pulling information from over 300 million indexed news articles and academic papers, listening to its human opponent and forming a coherent argument, including an opening speech, rebuttal and closing summary — all spoken by an upbeat-sounding woman’s voice.

At its event, IBM demonstrated the Project Debater’s abilities over the course of two sample debates, one on subsidizing space exploration, the other on telemedicine. At times, it proved extremely impressive, such as its opening argument on the benefits of telemedicine — a multi-faceted opener that quoted stats and figures from multiple sources on a topic it had just been provided minutes before. 

Project Debater even showed off some tongue-in-cheek humor.

“I can’t say it makes my blood boil, because I have no blood, but it seems some people naturally suspect technology because it’s new,” the Project Debater remarked during its closing argument on telemedicine.

Still, there was the occasional rough edge hinting at Project Debater’s limitations in its current form. The research that emerges from space exploration, it argued, far outstripped the costs of government spending on such ventures, even comparing subsidizing space exploration to investing in “really good tires.” It also said such investments were more valuable than good roads, schools or health care — a questionable statement of logic that elicited light chuckles from the audience.

But Project Debater’s abilities were best summed up when it displayed a hint of self-awareness. When debating for space exploration subsidies, it said it supports technology because “I am a prime example of its power.”

In a room full of forward-thinking Silicon Valley journalists, the statement was harmless enough. But the remark might not have gone over as well in areas and industries feeling the brunt of technological advancement, where human workers are being displaced by robots and automated processes that, like Project Debater, grow smarter and more potent by the week.

To them, Project Debater could elicit images of their very worst fears: the ushering in of an era, not only when A.I., machine learning and robotics surpass their own physical abilities, but also their intellectual capabilities. And while Project Debater is still a ways off from fulfilling futurist Ray Kurzweil’s claims that A.I. will reach human intelligence by 2029 and surpass human intelligence 16 years afterwards, there were moments on Monday evening when it became clear that Kurzweil’s predictions may well be on the conservative end. The Project Debater beat its human opponent in one of two debates on Monday — the second time it had done so since IBM began development in 2011 in Haifa, Israel.

Comparing the current UN to the UN of post-WW2 is ridiculous, even for a dimwitted liberal.  The current organization is an anti-US, antisemitic  conglomeration of islamofascists, statist euroweenies, and third-world basket cases.  It is UTTERLY devoid of any moral authority, and a stunning contradiction of american values.  It is just shocking that the US still belongs to this notorious gang.   


Bullshit.

Apparently it's more or less standard to remove someone from the offices while they are being investigated. So he is probably not fired.

And he could always play the Trump card: "I was just being sarcastic".

Then why when anyone dares to suggest modeling an American health care system after one of the above nations, you Righties start frothing at the mouth, screaming, "No Socialized Medicine!!!".

Just and example. Any number of social programs that the peoples of the above nations love are rejected by the American fright wing as socialism.


You respond to my pointing your IDIOT-LEVEL mischaracterization of governments with some invented rant by "Righties"??    Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin

Of course a fascist like Trump wants to exit an organization that was founded in large part to prevent a resurgence of fascism.

And no surprise that Jasmine hates an organization that was founded to fight fascism.
