    WHILE Artificial intelligence is already making important decisions over our lives, humans still don't trust it when it's unsupervised, according to a new study. Instead, it has been found that people prefer human interference in digital decision-making. 1Scientists have found that artificial intelligence tends towards cold, logical decision-making, which makes human interference still the most ethical optionCredit: Getty While AI has established itself to be on par with human brain functions in many ways, decision-making is in a different ballpark. Artificial intelligence draws laser-like conclusions based solely on facts and algorithms, but this is not the zoomed-out and empathetic way that humans interact with the world, according to Harvard Business Review. In a recent survey conducted by several parties including Intel and Forbes, one in four executives reported having to go back over decisions made by AI due to unpassable errors, the outlet said. Up to 38 percent of those surveyed said the machine put forth conclusions that were erratic or dissonant, while another 34 percent said what the robot did was unsuitable altogether. READ MORE...
    A ‘sea monster’ was pulled from the depths off the coast of Australia by fisherman who was surprised when he dragged in a shark with beady eyes and a human-like smile. The shark appeared to have rough, charcoal-colored skin and a small mouth with tiny sharp teeth lining the top and bottom. The image of the dead creature was shared on Facebook, sparking several theories as to what kind of shark it is - some suggest it was a cookiecutter or goblin shark. Dean Grubbs, associate director of research at the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory told Newsweek, that it looks like a gulper shark. The creepy creature is said to be a gulper shark that is critically endangered around Australia due to overfishing RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next World's first cloned Artic wolf is born in China: Pup named...

    A "ROBOT heart" that can pump "robot blood" around the body of a machine has been created. Researchers at Cornell University and the US Army Research Laboratory just developed the device that could make machines more life-like. 1Robotic hearts could be useful in small soft robotsCredit: Getty The researchers have explained their device in a new paper published in the PNAS journal. Cornell engineer Rob Shepherd said: "We’ve had robot blood that we published from our group, and now we have robot hearts. "The combination of the two will make more lifelike machines." However, the new heart isn't the answer to the Tin Man's prayers.

    That needs to change in a post-Roe world. If womb-to-tomb evangelicals think the mainstream pro-lifers need to do more than change laws, they should do more than chastise and lecture their peers. Now is the time for these Christians to bring a distinctive message to a watching world. The Christian vision for society is so powerful because it rests on a logically consistent worldview. It holds that God created this world and that every human life has inherent worth because every person is created in His image. The Bible also teaches that God created marriage – the lifelong union between one man and one woman – and that sex is to be enjoyed within a marital relationship. One of the most destructive phrases in modern history is “casual sex,” because it trivializes something that is central to the survival of the human species. One of the greatest contributions womb-to-tomb evangelicals can make to the abortion debate is to reject the notion that children are a “consequence” of sex. No one would call an apple tree a “consequence” of planting...
    At a time when there is so much stress, strain, and strife in the world around us, how can Americans be more like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in early 2022 and well beyond?  Fox News Digital posed that question and more to evangelist Alveda King, founder of the pro-life organization Speak for Life and a niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., during an engaging discussion by phone on Friday evening ahead of the federal holiday on Monday, Jan. 17, 2022, which is devoted to honoring her uncle's memory. She responded, "I can honestly say to you that my uncle, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., sought to be like Jesus Christ."Ask for forgiveness — and forgive others"Now of course he wasn't successful," she added, "because he wasn't perfect. He was a human being. But my dad [A.D. King], my granddad [Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.], and my uncle — they would all repent. They would ask for forgiveness." "And they wanted to learn to forgive others as well." ALVEDA KING SHARES HOW TO STAY FOCUSED ON CHRIST, NO...
    A TATTOO-MAD man dubbed the "Human Satan" has chopped off two of his fingers to make himself look more like an alien. Brazilian ink addict Michel Faro do Prado, 45, has also had a new creepy tattoo inked on his leg in honour of French influencer "Black Alien" to complete his devil-like image. 6Most of Michel Faro do Prado's body is covered in tattoos - including his eyeballsCredit: Newsflash 6Michel and his wife Carol Praddo - better known as 'Demon Woman'Credit: Newsflash 6Michel has chopped off two of his fingers to make himself look like an alienCredit: Newsflash The tattoo artist, from São Paulo, has undergone numerous body modifications, dozens of tattoos and piercings, and even customised his teeth. Michel enlisted a dentist to shape his teeth into canine-inspired arches, which he has coated entirely in metal. Other hellish modifications include "horns" implanted in his forehead and the removal of part of his nose and ears. Most of his body is covered in tattoos - including his eyeballs. Michel reportedly spent eight hours in the tattoo clinic getting the...
    David Silver, leader of the reinforcement learning research group at DeepMind, being awarded an honorary "ninth dan" professional ranking for AlphaGo.JUNG YEON-JE | AFP | Getty Images Computer scientists are questioning whether DeepMind, the Alphabet-owned U.K. firm that's widely regarded as one of the world's premier AI labs, will ever be able to make machines with the kind of "general" intelligence seen in humans and animals. In its quest for artificial general intelligence, which is sometimes called human-level AI, DeepMind is focusing a chunk of its efforts on an approach called "reinforcement learning." This involves programming an AI to take certain actions in order to maximize its chance of earning a reward in a certain situation. In other words, the algorithm "learns" to complete a task by seeking out these preprogrammed rewards. The technique has been successfully used to train AI models how to play (and excel at) games like Go and chess. But they remain relatively dumb, or "narrow." DeepMind's famous AlphaGo AI can't draw a stickman or tell the difference between a cat and a rabbit, for example,...
    San Jose shooting: Multiple fatalities after shooting at public transit rail yard Will the Tokyo Olympic Games still go ahead? Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad © Provided by Dot Esports Two months ago, lead champion producer Ryan “Reav3” Mireles commented on a Reddit post to discuss human, humanoid, and creature additions to the League of Legends cast. And today, he expanded on that conversation in a dev blog. Riot continues to introduce new champions and gameplay mechanics to keep League interesting for the player base. But for those additions to “hit their goal,” according to Reav3, they need to be “picked and played in games.” And to do that, the devs made a goal in 2017 to ship more “broadly-appealing” champions. © Provided by Dot Esports Image via Riot Games “We did a lot of research into what makes a champion broadly appealing or niche by surveying players all over the world,” Reav3 said. “What we found was that one of the major things that made a champion more relatable and appealing was when...
    Talk about growth spurts! The fossilised bones of a 200 million-year-old dinosaur from South Africa have revealed that its development varied from season-to-season. Unlike humans or puppies, which tend to grow in a broadly steady fashion, 'Massospondylus carinatus' grew irregularly, much in the way that trees do. In fact — just like you would for a tree — researchers led from the American Museum of Natural History studied the dinosaur's thigh bones by counting growth rings. They found different thicknesses of rings for different years, which the team believe was a growth strategy to adapt to varying environmental conditions. Talk about growth spurts!

Pictured: a cross section of a Massospondylus carinatus thigh bone, with colourations (right) highlighting the different thickness of growth rings seen within M. CARINATUS STATS Massospondylus carinatus was a medium-sized dinosaur that could reach up to around 1,100 lbs (500 kg) in weight. It walked on two legs, had a long neck and tail and grew to around 13–20...
    Elephants can 'catch a yawn' from humans they know well, according to a new study that found they responded to both faked and actual human yawns. Researcher Zoe Rossman from the University of New Mexico has been working with a herd of captive elephants at the Knysna elephant park in South Africa. Handlers yawned in front of African elephants and found they were more likely to yawn if they saw a human do so than any other type of human mouth movement.   This is the first time a species not closely related or linked to humans such as dogs and chimpanzees have been seen 'catching a yawn' from a human.  Researcher Zoe Rossman from the University of New Mexico has been working with a herd of captive elephants at the Knysna elephant park in South Africa Spontaneous yawning is common across all vertebrate classes, contagious yawning is less common and has been observed only in a few species of animal.  Rossman and colleagues worked with handlers at the Knysna elephant park where they take in orphaned and rescued elephants...
    A nasal spray may prevent humans from catching Covid-19 and could even be more effective than wearing PPE, scientists claim.  Experts at the University of California, San Francisco created 'AeroNabs', which can also be inhaled. They hope it will act as a short-term tool to prevent thousands of people becoming infected before a vaccine is eventually discovered. AeroNabs contains nanobodies, which are antibody-like immune proteins found in the blood of llamas, camels and alpacas.  But the nanobodies in the formula are synthetic and have been engineered to target SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the pandemic. Lab tests have shown the tiny proteins — about a quarter of the size of antibodies found in humans  — can block the coronavirus from entering cells.     But the AeroNabs formula still needs to be proven in clinical trials, to see whether it really can prevent a person from actually getting infected. Nanobodies are so small that synthetic versions could be mass produced quickly, the researchers say.   A nasal spray may prevent humans from catching the coronavirus and be more effective than wearing PPE, scientists in California...
    Amazon unveiled its six-wheel delivery robot, Scout, in January 2019, but has only been slowly expanding its field tests. After launching in a single neighborhood in Snohomish County, Washington and then adding a larger site in Irvine, California last August, Scout is now undergoing trials in Atlanta, Georgia and Franklin, Tennessee, Amazon announced today. It’s unclear how many robots are on the road and how many customers Scout is serving. But it seems the bots are very much still prototypes, and are being treated with the caution appropriate for a company that’s built its reputation on speedy and reliable delivery. Amazon says it has a “small number of Amazon Scout devices” operating in both Atlanta and Franklin, which will be delivering “Monday through Friday, during daylight hours.” The devices navigate autonomously but are accompanied by a human minder at all times (an “Amazon Scout Ambassador” in the retailer’s corporate jargon).
