    Alibaba has developed an artificial intelligence model that scored better than humans in a Stanford University reading and comprehension test.
    Microsoft achieved a similar feat, scoring 82.650 on the same test, but those results were finalized a day after Alibaba’s, the company said.

    Eight robotics teams from universities, institutes and a private company competed for a $10,000 prize in the Ski Robot Challenge.

    The teams had to meet specific requirements for entering a ski-bot.

    It had to be more than 50cm in height, stand on two "legs" with joints resembling elbows and knees, have an independent power system and use skis and poles.

    The robots were equipped with camera sensors to detect the blue and red flagpoles in their path and turn as they raced down a beginner's hill.

    I think the concept of AI is getting confused with control engineering. I mean imagine the task of landing those Falcon rocket sections back on Earth - nobody called it AI, but it was damn good control engineering. In neither case was the system juggling concepts, not did it need to actually feel anything.

    I'm happy to lose to computers in the area of Electronic Ignition Control.

    I walked too many miles to pay phones because of cranky carburetors on motorcycles.
