It's not about making machines smarter than us, it's about making machines that replace us in the workforce.
Except it's apparently only more transparent on the English-speaking Internet (actually more specific: English-speaking and not Australian-focused), not on sites in other languages.
I agree, the synergies here are obvious...
Ha ha ha... He said "synergies"
Oh yeah, gripe about product placement all over SlashDice.com...
I'm very frank about what kind of person I really am. Always have been.
You're the anonymous coward.
It's hilarious reading a bunch of French people arguing about who is more French! Just a Monty Python moment...
What is that?
...they believe was developed by a wealthy nation-state to spy on a wide range of international targets in diverse industries, including hospitality, energy, airline, and research...

I haven't bought a UPS in ten years because they weren't worth it. And you know what? I've lost ZERO data in the intervening ten years. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

Marriage is about subsidizing the creation of the next generation of mankind. Used to be, if you couldn't get pregnant together, you could get an annulment, and the marriage was considered dissolved.
My position, and, in a democratic society which runs on consensus, I don't actually need to defend it, is that if you get married, and enjoy the privileged status that that entails at my expense, you OWE me several well adjusted children to carry society forward when I retire, and if you get divorced, you OWE me for all the benefits you enjoyed at my expense. If you are infertile, you can't get married. If you are too old to have children, you can't get married. Live with who you want, fuck who you want, but marriage is about families, and if you're not interested in making and raising one, then leave it to others.

Your focus, first and foremost, should be on revenue, a product portfolio, and a plan for growing the customer base.
Sure you'll need an accountant and should outsource your payroll and get a corporate lawyer on board and all the other things people have advised you to do, but first and foremost, you need to get your head around the idea that you're no longer going to be an engineer and will have to focus on business needs and decisions that would apply to any industry.
I didbn't publish this paper. I submitted the story to Slashdot.
But, but, but... They did it with the internet. Doesn't that make everything legal?
No, it just means you can add "...on the internet." and get a patent on something that was otherwise old news.
