just not in the US.
That's unfortunate. It looks a bit small, though.
We bomb brown people because we can get away with it. That's more opportunist than racist, but it's still racist.
As soon as "white" people start doing the same crap, it happens to them too. I'm guessing you're wishing away that pesky little Balkan conflict a few years back, where we bombed white people for, among other things, slaughtering olive people.
Pretending that it's skin color that makes ISIS a fair target for air strikes is the worst sort of craven intellectual laziness.
the software was able to accurately predict patients who would still be alive after a year around 80% of the time
WikiLeaks said it would agree to a US extradition request for the site's founder, Julian Assange
Seeing as how the US hasn't asked to extradite him, Sweden has, that seems improbable.
Go AIs weren't expected to beat humans for another 10 years [wired.com] though - if that
They weren't expected to get that much computing power, either.
but the DeepMind/AlphaGo achievements are pretty astonishing IMHO.
I thought so too, but AlphaGo is mainly just a tree searching algorithm (which is why it takes so long to move, even with such huge CPU power). As you can see from this graph, Go AI was already on a trajectory to beat humans, as better and better hardware came along. The real breakthrough was employing a Monte-Carlo algorithm, which in that graph I linked to is at the inflection point.
Google managed to leapfrog the competition in Go computing by throwing a huge cluster at it. On a single CPU, alphago doesn't do nearly as well, and other computers are close in performance.
AI means what it's always meant to researchers since the 60s (outside of SciFi): software that solves problems that can't be solved in a straightforward procedural way. E.g., voice recognition and image recognition are "AI problems" that have largely been solved (still some ground to cover in machine vision, but the core work is there).
Note that what you are referring to is called weak AI, which is a term created because people realized they weren't making any progress on actually creating real (strong) AI.
And now it's a marketing term.
The Macintosh is Xerox technology at its best.
