The AGI is near and that’s a problem because of WHO will own it

We looooove the idea of having an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), don’t we? And even more so, we love the idea of what a human-level AGI could potentially create: a Superhuman Intelligence. 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).

Google achieves Quantum Supremacy, again.

Google achieves Quantum Supremacy, again.

Today, Wednesday October 23rd 2019 Google announced that its quantum supercomputer named “Sycamore” achieved so-called “quantum computational supremacy” by solving a complex problem in 200 seconds that would take today‚Äôs most powerful supercomputer 10 000 of years to crack. OK, actually today marks the day when Google PUBLISHED their results officially – in Nature magazine, and you can find their article here. IBM‘s best shot at shooting down this achievement was by saying that some traditional (binary) supercomputers could’ve solved this problem in “only” 2.5 days. Ok, IBM. Look, I don’t like Google as a company and have been disappointed...Read more
