The issue I have with that is it requires a spam filter system to be able to connect with a system capable of inflicting injury on human beings on a massive scale. Such a system would be more vulnerable to malicious human intent than AI. Hawking's getting in on it too:http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-30290540There's also the issue of compulsion/motivation. AI simulates the thought processes of the mind but not the vulnerability of the body. What drives emotional response...
It's not the same state of affairs it was years ago though. Back then, there was something to write about. Opinions over what standards were going to win, how Apple could unseat Microsoft, how IBM compared to Intel, emerging popular software products, bundled software discs, workflow tutorials, software that was pushing boundaries. They had games that would push your computer to the limits but still looked unrealistic. One was Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness, I'm sure they...
It's both early and late 15" models as it's a problem affecting the GPU model, which is common to both of them. Only the 13" wouldn't be affected.Your one won't necessarily fail but here someone's MBP suddenly failed after 3.5 years:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1800490Your late 2011 model could randomly fail this year sometime. They are worth about $1000 in working condition so you could sell it on eBay and get a late 2013 Retina model (these are...
You may, I can't change the main page myself though, you have to suggest it to the article author. You can PM the author by clicking the name Appleinsider and hitting send PM or use an email address on the contacts page:http://www.appleinsider.com/contact
Windows RT shows that a full desktop system can be ported over to ARM ok and this example shows why adding display touch support is not a good idea because even for occasional use, users would be frustrated by it: The benefits that an ARM design gives Apple is that it would be cheaper, maybe longer lasting on battery, certainly fanless. If they use a mobile GPU, it will use OpenGL ES so the CPU and GPU will cause software incompatibility. It would work as a basic Mac...
I suspect the title came about from someone trying to find another word for magazine to avoid saying 'long-running Apple magazine MacUser Magazine': http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/magazine It can be used to mean informal, mostly gossip or tabloid-like media, not necessarily trashy but it would be more respectful to say publication or something along those lines. This is a case where it would be best to email or PM the author because they're the only ones who can make...
He seems to have a bit of hang-up about dangerous robots:http://www.theverge.com/2015/1/15/7551687/elon-musk-donates-10-million-to-prevent-killer-ai"Elon Musk is worried that AI will destroy humanity, and so he's decided to donate $10 million toward research into how we can keep artificial intelligence safe. Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has previously expressed concern that something like what happens in The Terminator could happen in real life. He's also said that...
The magazines are in French so that presents a problem for non-French-speaking countries. There's an online posting of it with English translations here:http://animalnewyork.com/2015/heres-newest-issue-charlie-hebdo/That would be a nice OS feature, have a text translation engine that has an OCR component for images. If you visit a website in a language you don't know, the OS would translate everything inline for you. There's Google Translate but it's not the most efficient...
You were saying you wanted to replace a 2008 MBP with an Air but wouldn't buy a fanless Air because it's not a MBP replacement but would buy an Air like the current model. Assuming it's still an Intel chip they use then there shouldn't be a huge difference between the two design routes. Cutting the TDP in half doesn't always cut the performance in half. If it was 70% at 7.5W and 100% at 15W, in everyday use the performance difference would be unnoticeable, especially if it...
The releases seemed to have ramped up with the change of management - Forstall leaving, putting Federighi and Ive in his place. Now that they've implemented the larger changes, I hope they dial back on the OS releases and focus more on stability. I think it's right to push ahead with new software requirements but one thing they did recently was requiring that new apps in the App Store have to use the iOS 8 SDK by February 2015 despite only being released September 2014....
