Containing superintelligent AI is impossible, researchers find

Robot Hand
“I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” Ever since the release of Stan Kubrick’s film “2001: A Space Odyssey” more than 50 years ago, the sentient supercomputer HAL-9000 has embodied the fear of a superintelligence computer that emancipates itself from human oversight in order to complete its assignment. In this classic movie, HAL was depicted as turning increasingly neurotic. But today,...

A Paradigm Shift. The Role of Quantum Mechanics in Arbitration, Politics, and Defense

For centuries, science has been based on Newtonian laws and the principles of classical physics. In the last decades, this ontology started to be questioned, leading to the rise of quantum mechanics. From theoretical simulations and mathematical experiments, these quantum principles soon extended to computer science. They are working their way into different industries, from manufacturing and chemistry...
