there is a nice combination of acids that apparently works great for dissolving bodies, but neither mythbusters nor breaking bad is going to tell us (probably some mix of acids, paying attention to the molar concentrations)
To clarify my point: The article mentions Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Steven Hawking. What do they all have in common? They are not AI researchers. The author of the book is a philosophy professor. They are all talking about and making predictions in a field that they aren't experts in. Yes, they are all smart people, but I see them doing more harm than good by raising alarm when they themselves aren't an authority on the subject. An alarm that isn't shared with the experts in the field.
I find it interesting that the people raising the biggest alarm aren't AI researchers.
I wonder what Coca-Cola gets out this partnership?
Paramount Studios (owners of Star Trek, and a US company) would be affected.
The Slashdot fortune had a good response: Successful and fortunate crime is called virtue. - Seneca
Maybe more apropos: Once again prosperous and successful crime goes by the name of virtue; good men obey the bad, might is right and fear oppresses law.
Except that just a few vehicles out of the millions that are on the road. That's an insufficiently large sample size to say how automated cars from different manufactures with different levels of maintenance under varying road contritions will interact. You can't assume competency from the limited, though still impressive, testing Google has done.
If anything you are demonstrating the author's point, assuming that what Google has accomplished will be true of all driverless cars. Each of Google's automated cars is effectively a student driver with Google's engineers, technicians, and drivers shepherding the vehicles through the hazards of everyday driving. How will that record hold when one of those cars are twelve years old and hasn't had a tuneup in three?
Then you have this tripe: "'Further, by means of self-consciousness, man becomes capable of treating his own mental states as objects of consciousness. The prime characteristic of cosmic consciousness is, as its name implies, a consciousness of the cosmos, that is, of the life and order of the universe,' De la Torre writes in a study published in the journal Acta Astronautica."
I am very disappointed in you Slashdot.
