I watched two robots chat together on stage at a tech event

I got a glimpse into the future world of our robot overlords today room organization. It was nervy at times.

I watched two robots go on stage at a tech event to "debate” the future of humanity with each other.

The robots in question are Sophia and Han, and they belong to Hanson Robotics, a Hong Kong-based company that is developing and deploying artificial intelligence in humanoids. The duo took to the stage at Rise in Hong Kong with Hanson Robotics’ Chief Scientist Ben Goertzel directing the banter hk china vpn.

The conversation, which was partially scripted, wasn’t as slick as the human-to-human panels at the show, but it was certainly a sight to behold for the packed audience. Topics ranged from an early (and creepy) joke about taking over the world with a drone army, to ethics in robots and humans, robot job potential, and whether it is better to be rich or famous. There was even singing.

The event organizers claimed a world first for two robots talking on stage, and it isn’t difficult to imagine that it could become a more common sight in the future reenex facial.

Indeed, this is just the start of Hanson Robotics’ ambitious plans.

Company CEO and founder Dr David Hanson believes robots will become commonplace in homes and other aspects of our daily life within the next decade. But the key to that progress is to equip them with the emotions and adaptability that is lacking from today’s crop.

"We’ve got these early uses but our aspiration is Data from Star Trek,” Hanson told TechCrunch on the sidelines of the event following the robot debate. "Data was the smartest member of the crew, he could do anything.”

"He certainly could work in a shop or a factory, but he was helping to solve the big problems in collaboration and friendship with people. He had a heart of gold, he was creative, he learned and adapted, he wasn’t susceptible to the moral flaws of humans. That what we are aspiring towards — we are still hooking all these things together but we’ve got the parts in pieces,” he added.

For now, Hanson Robotics is preparing to launch its first consumer product, an Einstein-like mini robot aimed at teaching science to children. The robot is likely to be officially unveiled within the next month and be available for less than $300 once it goes on sale.

Up until now, the company has deployed small numbers of its humanoids for science museums, AI development projects and healthcare, in particular around working with autism cases. Now it can add speaking in front of a crowd at a technology event to the timeline.

She scored 666 goals for the sixth-placed Steel, smashing the previous record, while also twice breaking the record for most goals in one game with 65-point hauls Managed Security.

"It is very special because I think I was born to play netball and then to be so good at what I do and what I love, it's beyond special," Fowler said.

"Honestly, I was only going for shooting accuracy, not breaking records, so that is just a plus for me and I'm thankful for that also."

Fowler is the third import and second Jamaican to be named MVP.

Goal shoot compatriot Romelda Aiken won in 2008 and 2009, sharing the award in 2008 with England defender Sonia Mkoloma.

Tencent to open AI research center in Seattle

Chinese tech conglomerate Tencent will be opening a new AI research center in Seattle, according to The Information. The company has long had a core office in Palo Alto, but this will be its first major machine intelligence R&D effort in the country. Earlier this week Tencent announced that it would open its first data center in Silicon Valley cloud computing hong kong.

Yu Dong, formally of Microsoft Research, is said to be leading the U.S. effort. He recently joined Tencent and has traditionally focused on the nexus of speech recognition and deep learning. Tencent has a clear interest in developing a personal assistant that could tie its products together and increase its competitiveness in the market Wigs for Cancer Patients Bright Hopes.

Tencent’s investment in machine learning will enable it to deploy the technology across the company. Rather than build one-off services, the smartest tech companies are designing models that can be integrated into older products and services while serving as the basis for new ones.

Baidu has been pouring resources into its own AI research lab in Silicon Valley, though it has suffered two key setbacks in recent weeks. Andrew Ng, Baidu’s chief scientist, left the company back in March. And fittingly, Tencent itself nabbed Tong Zhang who led Baidu’s Big Data Lab. Despite the news, Baidu plans to open a second AI research center in the Valley.

Baidu, Tencent, Alibaba, Didi Chuxing and other Chinese tech companies have struggled to convince U.S. AI researchers to move their research overseas. This has led to stiff competition for AI talent in the U.S. as major international tech companies compete for engineers alongside Google, Microsoft and Facebook on their home turf phone covers.

孤崖一枝花

行山道上,看見崖上一枝紅花,豔麗奪目,向路人迎笑。詳細一看,原來根生於石罅中,不禁歎異。想宇廟萬類,應時生滅,然必盡其性。花樹開花,乃花之性,率性之謂道full lace wigs,有人看見與否,皆與花無涉。故置花熱鬧場中花亦開,使生萬山叢裏花亦開,甚至使生於孤崖頂上,無人過問花亦開。

香為蘭之性,有蝴蝶過香亦傳,無蝴蝶過香亦傳,皆率其本性,有欲罷不能之勢。拂其性禁之開花,則花死。有話要說必說之,乃人之本性,即使王庭廟廡,類已免開尊口Antique jewelry,無話可說,仍會有人跑到山野去向天高嘯一聲。屈原明明要投汨羅,仍然要哀號太息。老子騎青牛上明明要過函穀關,避絕塵世,卻仍要留下五千字孽障,豈真關尹子所能相強哉?古人著書立說,皆率性之作。

經濟文章,無補於世,也會不甘寂寞,去著小說。雖然古時著成小說,一則無名,二則無利,甚至有殺身之禍可以臨頭,然自有不說不快之勢。中國文學可傳者類皆此種隱名小說作品,並非一篇千金的墓志銘。這也是屬於孤崖一枝花之類。故說話為文美術圖畫及一切表現亦人之本性。"貓叫春兮春叫貓”,而老僧不敢人前叫一聲,是受人類文明之束縛,拂其本性,實際上老僧雖不叫春,仍會偷女人也。知此而後知要人不說話,不完全可能。花只有—點元氣,在孤崖上也是要開的Outsourcing payroll

物種輪迴

在來世,你可以自由選擇,可以成為的任何你想成為的人或物。如果這樣,你想改變現在的性別嗎?想出身皇室?想成為淵博的哲學家?還是想成為在戰鬥中得勝的士兵呢?或許,你只想回到現在的生活,即使它並非盡如人意。或許你正在被現在的去角質面膜生活所折磨,被一大堆的決定和責任,攪得焦頭爛額,而現在你只渴望一件事,那就是簡單的生活。

這是可以實現的。所以,你選擇在來世做一匹馬。你垂涎那簡單的生活:下午在草地上自由漫步,擁有漂亮的骨骼和隆起的肌肉。大步慢跑在被雪覆蓋著的平原上,自在地慢慢地甩著尾巴,還有那穿過鼻孔的口銜。

你做出了自己的決定。伴隨著咒語和揮動著的鞭子,你的身體開始變形為馬。你的肌肉開始隆起,突然長出的毛髮覆蓋了身體,就好像冬天蓋上了舒適的毯子。脖子變厚變長, 頸動脈變粗,手指變成蹄,膝蓋變得堅硬,臀部變得強壯。同時,頭骨變長,大腦也隨之發生了相應的Frankley Mart變化,隨著小腦的增長,大腦皮層退化,就這樣,人的特徵變成了馬的特徵。神經元變換了方向,神經突觸也變換成馬傳遞信號的途徑,你想體會馬的生活的願望也逐漸消失了。你對人類事物的意識逐漸消失,對人類行為的憤世嫉俗逐漸消失,而且你的人類的思維方式也逐漸消失。

就在這一瞬間,你突然意識到,自己忽略了一些問題。你越是變成馬,越是忘記了最初的case for samsung galaxy願望。你忘記了作為人的時候,你想體會馬的生活。

這清醒的瞬間,很是短暫。這是你為你的選擇而付出的代價,半人半馬的你意識到,沒有了最初的願望,你根本無法體會到簡單生活的樂趣,只有記得最初的選擇,才能體會到簡單的快樂。這還不是你所意識到的最壞的事情。你認識到,下次你帶著笨重的馬的頭腦回到這裡的時候,你已經不可能請求再變回人。你將不知道人是什麼。你的選擇,人類智慧的喪失,將是不可逆轉的。就在你失去人類智能的最後一瞬間,你絞盡腦汁地在想:是什麼地球外的更高級的生物,在尋找更簡單的生活的tooth implant信念的驅使下,轉世做了地球人。

如何減肥才是最有效最科學的

傳授必知的減肥常識corporate premium,教你如何減肥才是最有效最科學的。

肥胖的原因有三:

(1)喜歡吃東西,

(2)生理新陳代謝發生障礙,

(3)遺傳性的肥胖

其中以喜歡吃東西的肥胖最常見。這種肥胖的發生原因是吃入過多食物,使脂肪生成過多,或過多熱量儲存所造成。一般來說,食物經過消化吸收後,約有10%會變成糞便排出,約有45%用於同化作用,即生成身體的新成份,約有9%是消化吸收過程需要,約有36%是基礎代謝作用及活動能量消耗所需要。

脂肪生成的簡單過程如下:

吃入的碳水化合物經消化吸收變成血糖,提供活動所需要的熱量,超過身體需要時,血糖會變成肌肉肝醣,以備不時之需。如果此時有更多的血糖存在,則會變成肝臟肝醣。蛋白質經過消化吸收變成氨基酸,再變成我們身體所需的蛋白質。脂肪經過消化吸收變成三酸甘油脂,再變成脂肪儲存在體內。每公克碳水化合物可提供能量約為4千卡,蛋白質每公克可提供熱量4千卡,脂肪每公克則可供熱量9千卡。因此食物脂肪不要吃太多。理想進食方式以碳水化合物約佔50%,蛋白質大約佔20%,脂肪不超過30%為最理想。
減肥的目標與順序可分為四個advertising premium:減輕體重,減少肥肉脂肪,瘦身,塑身。

減輕體重可藉減少水分或飲食量或適度運動達成。

減少肥肉脂肪則除了前述步驟外,還需要過度的運動才可達成。

瘦身是指減少肥肉脂肪以後,某些部位例如腰圍要繼續縮小,如此身體才不會因為減肥而變難看。

塑身則指特定部位要變大,如肩膀或胸部的寬度或厚度要增加,如此才可達到塑造美麗的身材。

減輕體重步驟決定骨架大小,骨架大小可用手腕髖骨的寬度區分為大中小三種。由於國際上認知標準未統一,因此用一般人均屬於中型骨架為基準即可。

根據體態指數(BMI)算出理想體重,男性的標準體態指數是22,女性的標準體態指數是21。體態指數乘以身高的公尺數兩次,即可得到標準體重的公斤數。

舉例說,即公式為BMI(例如女性是21) x 身高的公尺數(例如1.6公尺)x 身高的公尺數(例如1.6公尺)=標準體重的公斤數(53.76公斤,四捨五入則為54公斤)。中型骨架的標準體重採用前述計算出的標準體重值,中型骨架準體重加百分之十則是大型骨架的標準體重,中型骨架準體重減百分之十則是小型骨架的標準體重。

由基礎代謝率算出身體基本需要熱量,男性的基礎代謝率是每公斤每小時是1.0千卡,女性則是每公斤每小時0.9千卡。所以男性每天約需1440千卡來維持基本生理的新陳代謝。女性則約需1300千卡。

計算每天活動所需熱量,一般非運動型的上班族的男性約1200到1400千卡就夠了。女性則約1100到1200千卡。

每天所需熱量為身體基本需要熱量與每天活動所需熱量的總和,即男性約需2600到2800千卡左右,女性約需2400到2500千卡左右。
參考一般食品書籍,設計每餐食物種類及份量business gift,併計算出每天飲食的總熱量。如果飲食總熱量等於每天活動所需熱量則體重不變。如果減少飲食熱量則會因一般活動消耗熱量而慢慢減輕體重,如果加上適度運動則可加速體重的減輕。劇烈運動則下降更快。

常見主要的減肥方式

減少飲食的熱量。增加運動量來消耗熱量。吃瀉藥減少熱量吸收。服藥降低食慾。服用纖維質和水使腸胃有膨脹感而厭食。服用藥物特殊藥物使脂肪的生成減少。外科手術拿走或抽掉脂肪。減少胃空間,使吃進的食物份量減少的胃隔手術。壓力會減輕體重,例如工作壓力,經神壓力,纏足等均可減輕體重。
常見減肥失敗原因

忍不住美味食物的誘惑。沒有恆心減肥運動executive gift。缺乏減肥同伴而無法長期減肥。生理上特殊原因或障礙,造成減肥無法成功。
