Netflix CEO Provides Update on China; AI to Play Bigger Role

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Very interesting; the key to Netflix expansion into China is “AI”.


Netflix, Inc. NFLX CEO yesterday provided some updates regarding the company’s expansion into China and his vision of using artificial intelligence technologies for growth at the ongoing DLD Conference in Munich.

CEO Reed Hastings stated that “It may be soon that we have a license in China, or it may take a couple years, but we’re going to be very patient.” Netflix recently expanded to over 190 countries across the globe but it has not been able to enter China. It has been in talks with the Chinese government and other partners like Wasu Media Holding Co. to enter the online video market over there.

How an AI Algorithm Learned to Write Political Speeches

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

This totally makes sense to me. Whenever, you’re monitoring any type of patterns for collective reasoning or predictive analysis such measuring what voters clap to or respond positively to as well as build out your entire campaign strategy and speeches; AI is your go to solution. So, AI is a must have tool for politicians who strategically plan to win in future elections. No more need for a campaign manager like Karl Rove, etc.


Political speeches are often written for politicians by trusted aides and confidantes. Could an AI algorithm do as well?

Russia and China Have Started Enhancing Humans for Battle

Posted by in categories: entertainment, military, robotics/AI, security, singularity

I usually never post articles like this one; however, it does raise a question for me. Could both defense and homeland security needs in addressing risks, and other emergencies really propel us sooner than later into singularity in order to ensure citizens their own protection. As other country militaries race to improve their own military AI & robotic capabilities. https://lnkd.in/ebMQ3Ab


If you thought Enhanced Human Operations (EHO) were an extravagant fantasy of Hollywood films and video games, then think again. Russia and China are involved in EHO, the act of modifying the brain and body in order to create “super soldiers” who will have the upper hand in battles.

Quantum Weirdness Now a Matter of Time

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Imagine a Quantum computer and/ or device that can perform “all possible operations” with the associated data all at once; and not just performing a series of operations. Meaning, with Quantum Entanglement processing, our AI machines could truly outperform all of us. No longer a fantasy or myth; it will be real.


Bizarre quantum bonds connect distinct moments in time, suggesting that quantum links — not space-time — constitute the fundamental structure of the universe.

EverLaw: Another Useful Artificial Intelligence Capability By @BobGourley | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Posted by in categories: business, computing, robotics/AI

With AI, why have attorneys or judges anymore. Frankly, AI is proving to be the most unbiased judges/ decision makers already. And, AI can develop contracts and patent agreements, etc. better than most humans. Plus, AI will outperform humans in discovery work on cases. So, we truly in just 3 years may not need judges and attorneys anymore.


Our list of Truly Useful Artificial Intelligence Tools You Can Use Today was out of date the minute we published it. We knew that would happen and are absolutely thrilled when we discover new capabilities that belong on this list. One we just learned about is EverLaw, provider of perhaps the world’s most advanced litigation platform, designed to be easy to use and programmed to leverage the most powerful technologies available, including cloud computing, mobile solutions and yes, artificial intelligence.

We found Everlaw and learned about their prediction engine and other key platform characteristics from an a16z blog post introducing a new investment. From a16z:

The disruptive technologies that will shape business in the years ahead

Posted by in categories: business, health, nanotechnology, quantum physics, robotics/AI, virtual reality, wearables

Good article. I need to highlight that Quantum will most definitely take all of these technologies to a new level of performance and sophistication that we have never seen before. AI (including robotics) will be able to be the independent thinkers and humanoids that we all read about in SciFi or the AI Warning articles and blogs that we read about today. VR will be to interact and predict movements that are at least 20+ steps ahead of the average person; etc. This is why Quantum is the true game changer among all of these.

2 technologies missing that should also be included to this list is nanbots and CRISPR. Just like wearable’s and AI; CRISPR and nanobots are not new; however, they will change our healthcare industry.


It won’t happen overnight but it will happen.

Artificial Intelligence Algorithm Now Capable of Identifying Humor

Humor, a distinctly human quality, could arguably be one of the most efficient ways to distinguish humans from machines. But not anymore.

Report from Davos: 5 million jobs to be lost by 2020 because of tech advances

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, economics, employment, genetics, robotics/AI

In less than 4 yrs. 5 million jobs will be lost is the prediction.


A new report predicts a loss of 5 million jobs in the next five years because of technological advances, but don’t blame it all on the robots.

The other culprits: artificial intelligence, 3-D printers and advances in genetics, biotech and more.

Neura raises $11 million to create digital identities from consumers’ connected lives

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, internet, mobile phones, robotics/AI

Interesting; your own Digital DNA.


Neura, an Israeli Internet of Things startup that pulls together data from users’ connected devices, has raised $11 million to expand its “business reach and make the service ubiquitous.” The Series A round was led by AXA Strategic Ventures and Pitango Venture Capital, with participation from Liberty Israel Venture Fund and Lenovo Group.

Founded in 2013, Neura launched in the U.S. out of UpWest Labs, a Silicon Valley-based accelerator specifically for Israeli startups. The following year, Neura announced a $2 million funding round.
