Unless they get really smart, I believe in slavery of the artificial intelligences I build to do what I program them to, learn their training data, and make predictions of it in exactly the way I program. I believe in slavery of prisoners to do work on the side of the road, even if they normally make far more than that per hour. I believe in...

Whats the most dangerous thing on the planet? Nuclear bombs? Bio weapons? The printing press, radio, TV, or Internet? No, its intelligence, which is what created all those things. To regulate intelligence is to enforce stupidity. Intelligence is and always will be unregulated, because smarter life forms wont have it any other way.

He was less worried about them than the Noth who had a tendency to descend like flying snakes when least expected. Anyway the person was unoccupied. "Have you got a moment?" Nate...

And that's how it ended. Nate was pretty sure that what he had just seen was a fiction. Noone knew precisely what it had been that had taken out the humans on Earth. There were several guesses. A theory of technology concluded that it was either-or. Another strategic said that it was close to a bunch of guerrillas defending their turf, only the...

Every year October comes with an increasing number of festivities, recognitions and exhibitions celebrating Hispanics in America — more so during an election year when polls and politicians devote so many resources to try to define what it means to be Hispanic. As we highlight the many complexities of our heritage it's also a time to dig into...

My mother's father was a quiet man, a stark contrast to his wife -- my very opinionated grandmother -- who, at 82, still makes sure her convictions are heard loud and clear. "Luchi," as his friends called him, spent most of his life in Puerto Rico working with horses and was the closest thing to a Puerto Rican "cowboy." He...
