Yes, there is. It's called "fiduciary duty". Look it up some day, sunshine.

Nice bit of shilling for corporate America. Did you learn to do it on your marketing job, perchance?
The officers of public corporation are charged by law to maximize the shareholder profit. If they stray from that duty in any significant way to actually do good, rather than appear to be "socially responsible" as a part of PR strategy, they will face shareholder lawsuits, hostile takeovers and removal by shareholder vote.
Corporations are forbidden by law to have any motive other than profit. If immortal, soulless legal person concerned solely with profit is not the very definition of evil, I don't know what is.

I have a very nice bridge available for a low, low price. Interested?
"Not being government they are probably safer" ?
What an astonishingly ignorant statement. Billions of corporate propaganda clearly have had profound effect on Americans.
Corporation is by design and law fascist, top-down hierarchical organization that is unaccountable to public, and forbidden by law to have any motivation except profit motive. That is safer than however flawed and limited checks-and-balances of the government?
AI is just as much a threat as rogue unicorns. And about as likely to be encountered
Maybe so, but they are selling it with claims that more powerful linux board may be used to additional things like robotic vision while running autpilot at the same time/
Wrong wrong wrong. Distinction between hard and soft realtime is not the minimum latency, it's about guaranteeing the latency. Linux provides no such guarantee and is inappropriate for the job.
Well - no, they did not. A single neuron is complicated and poorly understood at present. The network of 300 of those is not understood at all. The lego robot that you referenced is a primitive lookalike thta does not fully reproduce the behaviour of real worm.
Damn, confused them with techdirt
"Techcrunch" and particularly their head honcho Masnick are unapologetic corporate shills.
Except that it isn't an "error" in the way most people understand it. The neural net works correctly and as designed.
What is in error is the designers' and users' expectation that NN classifies things in the way that is "reasonable"
to a human. Which means, in turn, that the status of the whole discipline must be considered questionable.
It's also 3d-printed
What the AC said. Mathematica language itself is rather buggy and outdated, and I shudder to think about stuff like "natural language processing" built on top of it.
Now they presented us with a spirited defense of high-tech cannibalism. That is no surprise to anyone at the least familiar with those people. The whole profession of economics is morally and intellectually suspect, and the Chicago school - particularly so.
