New You’ve got to hand it to these people
Last week, on the third floor of a small building in San Francisco’s Mission District, a woman scrambled the tiles of a Rubik’s Cube and placed it in the palm of a robotic hand.

The hand began to move, gingerly spinning the tiles with its thumb and four long fingers. Each movement was small, slow and unsteady. But soon, the colors started to align. Four minutes later, with one more twist, it unscrambled the last few tiles, and a cheer went up from a long line of researchers watching nearby.
The news here is not so much that machine intelligence can unscramble one of these toys—that’s old news—but rather the melding of that part of the problem with the manual dexterity involved in physically manipulating the cube. Alas, however,
Though OpenAI’s hand can solve the puzzle in as little as four minutes, it drops the cube eight times out of 10, the researchers said.
Oops.

Story here.

New You, and everyone in the room, will be dead before you're halfway to the power switch.
New With the electrical grid, we could turn it off from miles away.

New There's your logic bomb
A) We could teach each fledgling new-toy: to be nice.
B) Each could do the binary logic then reply,
C) "Your tribe teaches offspring to be nice"; many do not comply
D) Da Capo [return to top]

Pity.
New Colossus: The Forbin Project springs to mind. Should be required viewing for pro-AI types.

New Seconded.. forgot how-Al-Punte was that flic--it was 'shot' at the Lawrence Lab ~museum
on the road (Grizzly Peak) atop Berkeley, whose structure kinda looks like a Fortress. (Tan concrete)
Pre "AI" this was more like "AM" [Artificial Malevolence] ..predating -perfectly describing- the W.H.-2017 --->?

New they ought to get together with the sexbot AI folks
