Double Jeopardy

PhysOrg Science News just reported on the defeat of the two greatest human Jeopardy! champions by a specially designed Artificial Intelligence machine.
The interest here is not that the computer knew the answers, that is a forgone conclusion.  The trick is that it understood the questions (irony, double entendre and all) without help.
And thus half the Sci-fi we will be reading is now plausible in the next 2 years. We are doomed as SKYNET is now upon us!!

On the plus side, maybe the phone bots can correctly route my calls now...

So far two states, Maine and Kansas, have legalized in 2022 with Massachusetts just a Governor’s signature away from going them. California may be part of that list as well as|in addition to} two measures that might legalize different types of sports activities betting are slated to seem on the November ballot. Yes, online cellular casinos are simply as protected as their desktop counterparts.
