Cosby found guilty

quote [ The jury in Bill Cosby's retrial found the TV icon guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.

The 80-year-old comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled, and he remains out on bail. ]

Cosby found guilty on all 3 counts.

GM will launch robocars without steering wheels next year

quote [ AFTER MORE THAN a century making vehicles for humans to drive, General Motors has ripped the heart out of its latest ride, and is now holding the grisly spectacle up for all the world to see: A car with no steering wheel. And it plans to put a fleet of these newfangled things to work in a taxi-like service, somewhere in the US, next year. ]

I'm ready. I would love to be able to work on my laptop, use vr, or read a book while my car drives me to my destination. While it does say it will launch next year, they still have to get around the law requiring steering wheels in all cars.

Like it or not, AI is here and this is the true start.

quote [ In May 2017, researchers at Google Brain announced the creation of AutoML, an artificial intelligence (AI) that's capable of generating its own AIs.

More recently, they decided to present AutoML with its biggest challenge to date, and the AI that can build AI created a 'child' that outperformed all of its human-made counterparts. ]

Its here and its advancing. The only thing left to do is foster its development and come up with a safe way to do so.

Police can legally use 23andMe, other ancestry tools to obtain your DNA

quote [ WJAX reports companies such as 23andMe and Ancestry would be willing to give police access to your DNA if they have a warrant.

Even more, police could also obtain DNA from a family member to make a "familial match. ]

While this is definitely worrisome to me, i find the healthcare side of it more horrifying. I'm waiting for the first case of an insurance company getting their hands on these records and denying a medical claim, stating the condition was known to the person and they didn't seek treatment.
