Credit Justin Wood Supported by ByCade Metz June 9, 2018 SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg thought his fellow Silicon Valley billionaire Elon Musk was behaving like an alarmist. Mr. Musk, the entrepreneur behind SpaceX and the electric-car maker Tesla, had taken it upon himself to warn the world that artificial intelligence was “potentially more dangerous than nukes” in television interviews and on social media. So, on Nov. 19, 2014, Mr. Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, invited Mr. Musk to dinner at his home in Palo Alto, Calif. Two top researchers from Facebook’s new artificial intelligence lab and two other Facebook executives joined them. As they ate, the Facebook contingent tried to convince Mr. Musk … [Read more...] about Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and the Feud Over Killer Robots
Car makers 4 letter word
By Ethan Baron | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: June 4, 2018 at 11:22 am | UPDATED: June 4, 2018 at 12:42 pm A judge shot down Tesla’s attempt to force into arbitration a class-action lawsuit claiming the company allowed “severe and pervasive” racism against black workers at its Fremont factory. The lawsuit was filed in November by former employee Marcus Vaughn. It alleged that the Palo Alto electric car maker led by CEO Elon Musk “created an intimidating, hostile, and offensive work environment for African-American employees” where two variations of the n-word were routinely used. The firm had sought to move the case from court into private dispute resolution, in accordance with an arbitration agreement it argued applied to Vaughn.

Andrew Sorensen got a degree in classical music in 2013, but he didn't want to perform or teach. After finishing college, he tried his hand at sales and worked for a while at a Bellevue, Wash., car dealership, where he sold Audis, many to software engineers.Today, Sorensen is one of those software engineers, thanks to three intense months at a local coding school, Coding Dojo. The training landed him an entry-level job at Expedia where the 26-year-old makes around $70,000 a year, which is more than he made selling cars. Now he can pay off the $12,500 his mom loaned him to go to the school, and he can start saving so he can move out — and one day buy his own Audi."It was definitely one of the best decisions I've made," Sorensen says. "My career is set."Nonstop demand for software developers and other IT professionals is leading to boom times for coding schools and boot camps, with career-changers like Sorensen signing up in droves.If one word characterizes coding schools in 2017, … [Read more...] about Is a coding boot camp right for you?
Review By Daniel Eran Dilger Wednesday, November 01, 2017, 10:54 pm PT (01:54 am ET) Apple's iPhone X introduces the next decade of iOS. It pairs an advanced, full-face display with a strikingly beautiful glass and steel design. It invents new multitouch alternatives to the Home button and introduces an advanced TrueDepth 3D camera system, fast Face ID authentication and futuristic augmented reality effects from Portrait Lighting selfies to Animoji, further expanding its role in defining affordable luxury in mobile devices.iPhone X boldly diverges from a solid, ten year design iPhone X fundamentally changes many aspects of what has been the most incredibly popular and lucrative franchise in consumer technology. That could be seen as a wildly risky move: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" But in the fast-moving world of technology innovators, the prime directive is to "move fast and break things" to deliver something even better. Apple prefers to think of its new phone as finally … [Read more...] about iPhone X review: Apple’s Face ID vision for the future of iOS
