I took an AI class as an elective for my B.S. in Computer Science at BYU, and under the direction of Professor Beus wrote an (incredibly rudimentary) Go machine-learning program for my Honors Program thesis.  I would have never some up with that thesis idea on my own.

I’ll be watching this organization with interest.

Excerpt:  If all that sounds familiar, that’s because Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk had been harping on this issue for years, and last December, he and others founded a an organization, OpenAI, that aims to address many of the same fears.

It’s a consortium—open to anyone—that seeks facilitate a much wider dialogue about the nature, purpose, and consequences of artificial intelligence.
