Wed. 03/27 - Microsoft Puts the Kibosh on April Fools' Jokes
The pioneers of modern AI win the Turing Award, Apple still hasnâ€™t fixed its keyboard problem, India shot down a satellite in space and Microsoft puts the kibosh on April Foolsâ€™ jokes.

AI: What's Hype? What's Reality?
Guests Jerry Kaplan of Stanford University, Oren Etzioni of The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, research fellow Geoffrey Hinton of Google, Hilary Mason of Cloudera, and author Nick Bostrom join host Walter Isaacson and trace the origins of AI, each milestone to date, and reveal how itâ€™s evolving at lightning speed. Stanley Kubrick is no oneâ€™s idea of an optimist (in film, anyway). Yet, in his landmark 1968 film â€œ2001: A Space Odyssey,â€ Kubrick projected a vision into the future that humans still havenâ€™t been able to shake: an intelligent machine, gone rogue, rising up against that who itâ€™d been tasked to serve. The vivid horror shaped the way we view AI, and â€“ to this day â€“ scientists, technologistsâ€™, businesses and policymakers still debate this possibility. We may have a long way before we find out the answer, but weâ€™ve come a long way so far just to get here. So will AI rebel against humans? Although many are terrified, a school of thought exists that AI simply wouldnâ€™t have interest in human affairs. Yet, with algorithms and analytics helping diagnose and treat diseases like cancer, humans are very interested in AIâ€™spotential. And, more viscerally still, interested in if AI will automate them out of a job. Humans may make mistakes, but unless we can trust AI to be objective and perfect, so, too, will machines. Plus, without true emotion and real-time intuition, jobs like doctors aremore than safe for the foreseeable future. Of chief concern: combatting implicit bias in AI. Technologists are refining algorithms to ensure non-discriminatory objectivity in decision-making. AI may not replace us, but if deployed powerfully and perfectly, AI may be the last invention humans ever need.
