Artificial Intelligence

The other day at Costco, a guy guy behind the counter read my Nietzsche t-shirt and pronounced his name properly.  Pretty much two groups of people can do so: people who really enjoyed that one college philosophy class and continental philosophy professors given that he was working at Costco, I correctly deduced that he was not a college professor.  Our discussion of philosophy, itself, petered out fairly quickly, but we switched gears to discussing Artificial Intelligence and I thought it would be fun to do a data-dump regarding the problems I see with discussing Artificial Intelligence.

Also, an update on the Trolling at the LFL project:

Windows 10 Harassing You?

I’ve posted resource suggestions in teh past (you can see them in the archives) About windows 10.  However, I don’t think I’ve posted this handy resource yet.  If you’re a Windows 7 or 8 user, you’ve likely been plagued with this annoying little popup and icon in the system tray that keeps insisting you upgrade to Windows 10 “for free”.  Rather than dealing it it slowing my system down and increasing the odds that my kids will be clicking around on the machine and accidentally install Windows 10, I decided to get rid of it.  This source seemed to do the trick; I haven’s seen the popup or anything for about two months.
