“We are summoning the Demon,” warned Elon Musk in a Vanity Fair piece last spring, when describing what’s in store for humanity should artificial intelligence’s evolution go unchecked.
As Founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX, Musk resides in rarified air among Silicon Valley’s most successful visionaries. Elon Musk also has a penchant for flame throwers and catapulting luxury cars into space. Suffice to say, Mr. Musk has a flair for the dramatics.
Indeed, AI’s current state an...

A fine finish line in the east end as the weather warms.
I live in the Upper Beach in Toronto’s east end. Any avid runner in the area will tell you that, when it comes to Toronto running routes, close-by Taylor Creek ravine offers one of the most scenic running routes in the city. From the creek, you can also easily access similarly attractive ravine systems to the northeast and northwest, making Taylor Creek a gateway to a vast subterranean oasis, and exemplary of Toronto’s nickname as ‘A Ci...
