    True North 2018 - AI And Machine Learning Programming

    AI promises an exciting future. The upside is massive. It has the potential to help us solve the most obnoxious problems plaguing humanity. We could see giant leaps forward in medicine, manufacturing, transportation, biotech, agriculture, government, and on and on. No more crappy jobs. Maybe we’ll even get those flying cars we were promised.

    But we have concerns.

    It’s not killer robots that scare us, though that is terrifying. We’re afraid of AI nobody understands making life and death decisions for us. We’re afraid of economy-destroying, human value-displacing tech, controlled by a handful of people with all-too-human motives. We are afraid that, if there is a bug -- because there are always bugs -- we won’t be able patch it before it’s too late.

    Can we take a minute to talk this through?

File sizes seem fine to me.

I love this. Some really interesting stuff here, and I like the perspective from Waterloo (I live nearby). I think that MP3 issue is fixed, they all downloaded normally for me. More!
