When a billionaire investor responsible for disrupting credit/payments, automotive, and space travel industries communicates a warning to the world about a trend in new technologies, it’s best just to listen.

Case in point, yesterday SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk told people to be careful when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI), which he said could be “potentially more dangerous” than nuclear weapons, according to a tweet sent yesterday. (The tweet came just an hour after Musk offered his thoughts on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie, so take that however you will.)

Sending My Stanford University Professor into Awe, Bewilderment, and Paralysis!

Posted by in category: futurism

What in 2014 I told my own Stanford University Business Analytics Class that Caused my P.hD.-ed Sociology Professor to Set Himself Into Shock and Outrage and STONE SILENCE AND PARALYSIS!

(What my associated NASA Hard Rocket Scientists told me fifteen (15) years ago.)

There is not Society, but outright NONLINEAR ENTROPY (The Second Law of Thermodynamics as it is understood in optimal Classic Physics). To cope with this hard indisputable truth, simple linear human mind will never suffice UNLESS SAID MIND IS FORCEFULLY ANTINATURALLY MARSHALED INTO MULTIFARIOUS COLOSSALLY NONLINEAR ALGORITHMIC COUNTERINTUITIVENESS.

BMW Launches Its Answer to Tesla’s Supercharger Network

Posted by in category: transportation

By  — Wired

The lightweight, compact DC Fast Charger will power 80% of the BMW i3's battery in 30 minutes.

The biggest problem automakers selling electric cars face is limited range. No one wants to get caught without any juice. To get around this concern, Tesla, whose Model S offers the best range (up to 265 miles), is building a vast network of “Supercharger” stations that make it possible to take epic road trips. Now BMW is following suit, launching a network of charging stations to make owning its first all-electric car, the range-handicapped i3, more convenient.
