I sure do love that idea. It’s like making a God who’ll be more or less tangible, giving us world-changing results, fix all our problems, and blow up balloons the shape of molecular structures at kids’ birthday parties (and yeah, possible destroy us all but whatevs).

The goal was to create a sort of super-charged Alexa, but better (which frankly, doesn’t seem like a stretch). Imagine an astronaut conducting experiments and being able to ask CIMON to look up related info, and use natural language processing (NLP) to do so. So our astronaut could just ask “what’s next?” and the AI would be able to know what he’s talking...Read more
