The Terminator series has long warned us of the perils of artificial intelligence.
Fortunately, before the machines decimate humanity, they'll at least provide some levity. For proof? Just see the catastrophic failure of Microsoft's recent "Tay" experiment, which was spectacularly summarized with this headline from The Telegraph: "Microsoft deletes 'teen girl' AI after it became a Hitler-loving sex robot within 24 hours."
Our civilization had a pretty good run. Here's what else happened this week:
- Before its debut, plenty of ClubLexus members couldn't wait to get their hands on the RC F. But in the year since the 467-horsepower coupe hit the market, lots have been traded in. What's going on?
- On JaguarForums, one impassioned poster made a plea to F-Type owners to keep their cars properly maintained for future collectors. Aftermarket exhausts were a prime target, and reactions were mixed.
- As the saying goes, we're suspicious of people who don’t like dogs, but we trust a dog when it doesn't like a person. That said, HDForums thinks steering a bike might be a bit much for man's best friend.
- The RennList crowd's hitting the track. Of course, along with the joys of making passes and hitting apexes, comes the specter of mechanical failure. And after 167k miles, this trusty 911 needed a break.
- Would you let an 18-year-old kid take your car to prom? That's the question facing CorvetteForum right now, and while it looks like the lad isn't going to find any takers, the thread is nicer than we'd expect.
