      Tesla CEO Elon Musk slammed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter over the safety of AI.

      Zuckerberg spoke on a Facebook live broadcast over the weekend about AI and its potential to harm humans as technology advances. A fan prompted the question after citing Musk’s recent discussion at the National Governors Association meeting.
      “I have exposure to the most cutting edge AI and I think people should be really concerned about it,” Musk said. “I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal … There’s a role for regulators that I think is very important and I’m against over regulation for sure, but I think we better get on that with AI.”

      Zuckerberg is far from worried about the future of AI.
      “I have pretty strong opinions on this. I am optimistic,” Zuckerberg said. “And I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don’t understand it. It’s really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible.”
      He even went as far as discussing AI’s potential role in saving lives before returning to a balanced view on how all advancing technology can impact human life on a grand scale.
      “Whenever I hear people saying AI is going to hurt people in the future, I think yeah, you know, technology can generally always be used for good and bad, and you need to be careful about how you build it and you need to be careful about what you build and how it is going to be used,” Zuckerberg said.
      Musk didn’t stand for being called “pretty irresponsible” for long, firing off a tweet and joining the subsequent discussion on Twitter on the article’s thread.
      Needless to say, the whole exchange left Twitter feeling a little something like this:

      Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, predicts that in ten years, all new cars in the U.S. will be electric vechicles. He spoke at the closing plenary session of the annual summer meeting of the National Governors Association where he discussed the impact of emerging technologies on energy and transportation, and warned about the future of artificial intelligence. The session began with remarks by outgoing NGA Chair Terry McAuliffe who introduced his successor, Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-NV).

      Nvidia’s graphics processing units (GPUs) continue to excel as an infrastructure platform for state-of-the-art artificial intelligence language models. Recently, the company’s GPUs were able to train BERT, one of the world’s most advanced AI language models, in a record-breaking 53 minutes.1 Getting computers to understand all the nuances of human languages and respond appropriately has long been a holy grail in developing natural language processing (NLP) technology.2 Language models can now complete inference in just 2.2 milliseconds, i.e., understand and reach a conclusion based on information received.3 Strides made in NLP could be significant, with potential adopters spread across numerous industries.

      Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and software products except those covered by open source licenses, a source has told Reuters.
      The news is a blow to the Chinese technology company that the US government has sought to blacklist around the world.

      Of course, I don't really believe this in the slightest. But I thought I would put it out here just to raise some interest in the actual meaning of Gog and Magog.
      I looked on Google and could not find any places where anyone had made the connection yet between GOOGLE and GOG. This surprised me, because in Hebrew the verse at Ezekiel 38:2 actually says the following in the Masoretic text:
      See it here: https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/eze/38/2/t_conc_840002
        בֶּן־אָדָם שִׂים פָּנֶיךָ אֶל־גֹּוג אֶרֶץ הַמָּגֹוג נְשִׂיא רֹאשׁ מֶשֶׁךְ וְתֻבָל וְהִנָּבֵא עָלָֽיו׃
      אֶל־גֹּוג means when transliterated EL-GOG.
      But the O between the two G's is actually a 'vav' which when used as a vowel (as it is here) is not just used for O, but also for U, pronounced OO. Therefore:
      אֶל־גֹּוג can also be transliterated as EL-GOOG.
      Transliterated left to right as it appears on paper, this is אֶל־גֹּוג or GOOG-LE.
      Quite a coincidence for a word that has a curious prophetic meaning in Scripture, and a word that is so ubiquitous on the Internet that it transcends translation. It is a trademark, a mark of that wild, beastly thing we call the Internet.
      Of course, that particular "wild beast" connection has already been done:

      We're building an artificial intelligence-powered dystopia, one click at a time, says techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci. In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information. And the machines aren't even the real threat. What we need to understand is how the powerful might use AI to control us -- and what we can do in response.

      Google did a quick search to see what a $550 million investment in Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com would return. The results?
      A less than 1% stake in China's second biggest e-commerce player (behind Alibaba).  A massive network of warehouses and delivery ops. A chance to work with JD.com to tackle online retail across the globe. But as Google eyes e-commerce (and Amazon)... 
      ...it's also looking to win favor with China. Since China banned Google's search engine in 2010, Google's built offices in the country, opened AI research facilities, and sent Sundar Pichai over to wine and dine lawmakers.
      But so far, China's remained query intolerant.
      Best case scenario: Google slides into three markets (U.S., Europe, and SE Asia) using JD.com's incredible capacity to fulfill up to 200,000 orders in one day...from one facility...with only four human workers...Then? China changes its mind about Google search.

      Microsoft is launching a $25 million initiative to use artificial intelligence to build better technology for people with disabilities.
      CEO Satya Nadella announced the new “AI for Accessibility” effort as he kicked off Microsoft’s annual conference for software developers. The Build conference in Seattle is meant to foster enthusiasm for the company’s latest ventures in cloud computing, artificial intelligence, internet-connected devices and virtual reality.
      Microsoft competes with Amazon and Google to offer internet-connected services to businesses and organizations.
      The conference and the new initiative offer Microsoft an opportunity to emphasize its philosophy of building AI for social good. The focus could help counter some of the privacy and ethical concerns that have risen over AI and other fast-developing technology, including the potential that software formulas can perpetuate or even amplify gender and racial biases.
      In unusually serious terms for a tech conference keynote, Nadella name-checked the dystopian fiction of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, declared that “privacy is a human right” and warned of the dangers of building new technology without ethical principles in mind.

      “We should be asking not only what computers can do, but what computers should do,” Nadella said. “That time has come.”
      The five-year accessibility initiative will include seed grants for startups, nonprofit organizations and academic researchers, as well as deeper investments and expertise from Microsoft researchers.
      Microsoft President Brad Smith said the company hopes to empower people by accelerating the development of AI tools that provide them with more opportunities for independence and employment.
      “It may be an accessibility need relating to vision or deafness or to something like autism or dyslexia,” Smith said in an interview. “There are about a billion people on the planet who have some kind of disability, either permanent or temporary.”
      Those people already have “huge potential,” he said, but “technology can help them accomplish even more.”

      Microsoft has already experimented with its own accessibility tools, such as a “Seeing AI” free smartphone app using computer vision and narration to help people navigate if they’re blind or have low vision. Nadella introduced the app at a previous Build conference. Microsoft’s translation tool also provides deaf users with real-time captioning of conversations.
      “People with disabilities are often overlooked when it comes to technology advances, but Microsoft sees this as a key area to address concerns over the technology and compete against Google, Amazon and IBM,” said Nick McQuire, an analyst at CCS Insight.
      Smith acknowledged that other firms, especially Apple and Google, have also spent years doing important work on accessibility. He said Microsoft’s accessibility fund builds on the model of the company’s AI for Earth initiative, which launched last year to jumpstart projects combating climate change and other environmental problems.
      The idea, Smith said, is to get more startups excited about building tools for people with disabilities — both for the social good and for their large market potential.
      Other announcements at the Build conference include partnerships with drone company DJI and chipmaker Qualcomm. More than 6,000 people are registered to attend, most of them developers who build apps for Microsoft’s products.
      Facebook had its F8 developers’ gathering last week. Google’s I/O conference begins Tuesday. Apple’s takes place in early June.
      This is the second consecutive year that Microsoft has held its conference in Seattle, not far from its Redmond, Washington, headquarters.

      Las Islas Feroe, un archipiélago remoto que sobresale de los mares fríos entre Noruega e Islandia, ni siquiera aparece en algunos mapas del mundo. Pero desde hace unas semanas, las verdes laderas, los senderos rocosos y algunas carreteras de las 18 islas se encuentran en Google Street View y un equipo de ovejas con cámara ayudó a conseguirlo.
      Cuando, el año pasado, el consejo de turismo de las islas decidió que quería llamar la atención, sabía que necesitaría hacer algo inusual. También sabía que su terreno accidentado no sería atravesado fácilmente por los automóviles de Google que recorren las calles de la ciudad en todo el mundo para sacar fotos. Así que conectó unas cámaras de 360 grados con energía solar en el lomo de unas ovejas y empezó a cargar las imágenes resultantes y muy impresionantes a través de Street View.
      La idea de las ovejas, que la junta de turismo denominó Sheepview 360, resultó ser un éxito. Las ovejas son un gran negocio en las Islas Feroe, una nación autónoma dentro del Reino de Dinamarca cuyo nombre se traduce como las "islas de las ovejas". Se cree que la raza distintiva de las islas fue importada por los colonos nórdicos en el siglo IX y en la actualidad viven cerca de 80,000 de estos animales, superando ampliamente a las 50,000 personas. El funcionario de turismo Levi Hanssen dijo que la mayoría de los feroeses tienen alguna conexión con la cría de ovejas, aproximadamente un tercio de las cuales son sacrificadas para la producción de carne y otras se usan para la lana y los productos lácteos.

      Facebook already tailors its feed of news, sports scores and viral videos to show you what you want. Now Google is going to do it too.
      In a classic case of Silicon Valley "Anything you can do I can do better," the search giant on Wednesday updated its free Google app for iPhones and Android phones with a feed that uses artificial intelligence to show you things like news stories or movie trailers.
      Google is expanding the features in its search app's news feed.
      The feed itself isn't new -- Google introduced a basic version of it in December that shows you content you might be interested in, based on your Google searches. But on Wednesday, Google expanded the feed to include "follow" buttons so you can keep tabs on different public figures, like President Donald Trump, artists like Kendrick Lamar, or TV shows like "Game of Thrones."

      Google will stop its long-standing practice of scanning the contents of individual Gmail users for advertising purposes, the company announced in a blog post today. The practice, something Google has done nearly since the launch of its email service, allows the company to digest the contents of email messages and use them to deliver targeted ads within Gmail itself.
      Google is trying to convince more businesses to use its cloud services
      Users are allowed to opt out, and Google also reserves the practice only for personal Gmail users and not those of corporate accounts. However, the practice has made it difficult for Google to find and retain corporate clients for its cloud services business, according to Diane Greene, Google’s cloud division head, who spoke with the Financial Times. This is due to general confusion over Google’s business tactics and an overall apprehension to trust the company with sensitive data, the report says.
      “G Suite’s Gmail is already not used as input for ads personalization, and Google has decided to follow suit later this year in our free consumer Gmail service,” Green wrote in today’s blog post. “Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for any ads personalization after this change. This decision brings Gmail ads in line with how we personalize ads for other Google products.”

      A handful of apps are no longer supported on the Apple Watch, according to a report by Apple Insider. Major apps like Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay appear to have quietly abandoned the Apple Watch App Store, without giving a heads-up or providing any explanation to users.
      AI reports that Google pulled support for its Maps app on watchOS a few weeks ago, while recent updates to the Amazon and eBay apps no longer reference support for the Apple Watch. Other affected apps include Target (the main one, not its coupon app Cartwheel) and TripAdvisor. A TripAdvisor thread dating back to February questioned the changes, but users said they emailed technical support and received no response.
