ROBOT APOCALYPSE NEWS!!

Forget Skynet and Cyberdyne Systems. Look out for Google and Boston Dynamic.

Google’s ‘DeepMind’ AI platform can now learn without human input
DeepMind is now capable of teaching itself based on information it already possesses.

In a significant step forward for artificial intelligence, Alphabet’s hybrid system — called a Differential Neural Computer (DNC) — uses the existing data storage capacity of conventional computers while pairing it with smart AI and a neural net capable of quickly parsing it. “These models can learn from examples like neural networks, but they can also store complex data like computers,” wrote DeepMind researchers Alexander Graves and Greg Wayne.

Much like the brain, the neural network uses an interconnected series of nodes to stimulate specific centers needed to complete a task. In this case, the AI is optimizing the nodes to find the quickest solution to deliver the desired outcome. Over time, it’ll use the acquired data to get more efficient at finding the correct answer.

The two examples given by the DeepMind team further clear up the process:

After being told about relationships in a family tree, the DNC was able to figure out additional connections on its own all while optimizing its memory to find the information more quickly in future searches.
The system was given the basics of the London Underground public transportation system and immediately went to work finding additional routes and the complicated relationship between routes on its own.

ROBOT APOCALYPSE NEWS!!

Uber self driving truck makes its first delivery of Budweiser Beer. They're taking our jobs!
A tractor trailer full of beer drove itself down Colorado's I-25 last week with nobody behind the wheel. Uber Technologies Inc. and Anheuser-Busch InBev NV teamed up on the delivery, which they said is the first time a self-driving truck had been used to make a commercial shipment.
With a police cruiser in tow, the 18-wheeler cruised more than 120 miles while a truck driver hung out back in the sleeper cab, the companies said. The delivery appears to be mostly a stunt—proof that Otto, the self-driving vehicle group that Uber acquired in July, could successfully put an autonomous truck into the wild.

GITS Live Action News

Collider posted an interview with some of the staff of GITS and Scarlet Johansson. They discussed story themes, practical effects, and the characters themselves.

When asked which GITS story would be adapted, producer Avi Arad stated “We’re not doing Puppetmaster. It’s not Laughing Man. It involves Kuze. The Kuze story. The big thing we are doing here is that we’re not necessarily doing an origins backstory, but we are addressing her sense of self and resolving how she defines herself in terms of memories. That’s one of the main thrusts in the story. Inspired by that episode of Affection in Second Gig. It’s bits and pieces of those mixed together.”

Oh, nice. The episode I think they're referring to there is one of my all-time favorite episodes of either series, so I am exceedingly curious to see how that is translated to live-action format and how they build on that.
I am surprised at the statement about Kuze and it being "not Laughing Man", because I remember reading elsewhere that the Laughing Man would feature.
Well, we will see...
