I can't believe this has happened already. Could the press be exaggerating? Is the singularity finally near?

It's all over the news now. National Geographic, BBC News...

This is crazy. First cold fusion and now this in one week, I can't handle it.


On a side note, Yahoo's main news story is about M. Vick getting a job and not this! I can't believe how dumb and pathetic our society is becoming.


Who cares about mind controlled robots? You can already control video games with neural sensors.

That's an issue with the rotating report process. I don't know how often it updates, but it's automated. It just reads off a list of top stories.

We can? :confused:

I liked processing thoughts more than the capability of developing thoughts.

If it were true, they would have badly chosen the date. You are fools.

We can?

Uhhh..yeah. The things don't work all that well but they work. Welcome to 2009 my friend.

Secondly what about cold fusion!?!?

Are you kidding? Your on a physics forum and you didn't know about this?

eventually when we get so advanced scientists will get so bored they'll have to re-invent things regardless of how ridiculous and impractical it is.

Like square wheels!

Cold Fusion?
There's been a little bit in the news:

'Cold fusion' rebirth? New evidence for existence of controversial energy source

SALT LAKE CITY, March 23, 2009 — Researchers are reporting compelling new scientific evidence for the existence of low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), the process once called "cold fusion" that may promise a new source of energy. One group of scientists, for instance, describes what it terms the first clear visual evidence that LENR devices can produce neutrons, subatomic particles that scientists view as tell-tale signs that nuclear reactions are occurring.

cool! and it only costs 154 $ :biggrin:

It's down to 109.99. and you get a 20$ mail in rebate, making it only 89.99. Not too shabby

A moderate improvement in task automation? Happens all the time. This isn't nearly as impressive as it sounds. It's closer to a manufacturing robot in terms of features with a few nifty differences than it is to a super robot scientist.

Don't let the title fool you. The AI cannot actually think, and there's no reason to think that they ever will at the rate current research is going.
