Halfaker believes that such a world is a long way off. And even if it arrives, he says, Wikipedia will still need humans to guide those neural networks. “I’m not sure we’ll ever get to the place where an algorithm will beat human judgment—or we won’t get there anytime soon,” he says. “But even in that case, we’ll still want human judgment as part of the process.” That’s why, ironically, he has built an AI service that can expand the ranks of Wikipedia editors.
“We are an Internet company and APB.com is a content provider and they have done a lot of work. Knowing that they were in the ‘to be purchased’ mode, we thought this would accelerate our growth,” said Nancy Davis, spokeswoman for SafetyTips.com

Weave 0.2 is available for download by testers only. The Weave website warns testers of a lot of the frayed edges to the program which will have to be worked out before a public release.
He doesn’t talk like your average CEO, offhandedly sprinkling his conversation with allusions to everything from Star Wars and the Dilbert cartoons to the Austrian-British philosopher Karl Popper, and he doesn’t dress like one. One morning, he shows up in a coat with leather fringe that looks like something straight out an old Hollywood Western. Another day, he arrives in a collarless button-down and a blazer with no lapels, looking more like Dr. No or some other villain from the James Bond movies. Overstock executive vice chairman Jonathan Johnson says that when he first interviewed for a job at the company, Byrne was wearing a silk Chinese shirt with a dragon print and an African millipede was crawling up his arm.
Even then, Anonymous had a vigilante streak, and it could be downright mean. They’d d0x someone who abused a cat. In particular they went after abusers of cats, because Anonymous loves cats and pictures of cats. They blocked the pool at the online kid’s game Habbo Hotel with black, generously fro’d avatars declaring “Pool is closed due to AIDS” as a protest to perceived racism on the part of Habbo’s admins.
The Lebanese guerilla group has been linked to numerous anti-U.S. attacks, including a suicide truck bombing in Beirut that killed 241 Marines in 1982, and has established cells worldwide, including in North America, according to the State Department report.
QUOTEWORTHY: “Market distortions ultimately lead to market failures, so perhaps the Federal Reserve and other global central banks are growing concerned with investors’ hubris and signaling it’s time to reign in risk,” said Stephen Innes, senior trader at OANDA. “The market is now wondering which central bank will be next to drain the punch bowl. BOJ?”
The new store will feature a subset of items from merchants who already hawk new products at fixed prices on eBay. But unlike the regular eBay setup, purchased items from multiple sellers on eBay Express can all be placed into a single shopping cart, mirroring the checkout systems used by more conventional internet shopping sites.
Of course I’ve introduced my kids to Lego — they have a small collection (one set of Duplo blocks that my older daughter got when she was very small, and then a small pile of regular bricks and bits). And they do play with them quite a bit, but they also tend to dump out the entire bunch (on the thick-pile carpet), pick out a few things to play with, and then leave the rest scattered all over the place. This is, in my opinion, a terrible way to play with Lego. Particularly when I walk barefoot through the room.
In any case, Randall sees the odds of the hypothesis turning out to be true as “effectively zero.” At least someone has her head on straight.
Loup Ventures managing partner Gene Munster argues Tesla’s Model 3 has the same opportunity to be as popular as the iPhone.
Finding your way to the top of a rock wall, she says, is a bit like finding a hole in Google’s Chrome web browser or its Gmail email service. In each case, you “sense” a path to your destination. “There are no rules,” she’ll tell you. “There is no hard and fast way of doing it.” And the more you do it, the more attuned your sense becomes. It’s no surprise that many of her colleagues inside the Google security team are also rock climbers. At places like Lake Tahoe and Red Rock Canyon, outside of Las Vegas, she has climbed with Chris Evans and Rich Cannings and other notable Google hackers.
