Inefficient does not mean ineffective, and it is certainly not the same as lazy. You get things done – just not in the most effective way possible. You’re a bit sloppy, and use more energy. But don’t feel bad about it. There is real
Lukas StickelbergerEfficiency is great in an unchanging environment, but to expect an environment to remain static is unrealistic. Environments change all the time. When workplaces value efficiency in a changing environment, they become fragile.
Tom ForemskiResetting expectations? It's too late for that. We have technologies that can solve humanity's problems and that we choose not to use them is See morean ethical and moral issue that will be soon repugnant. In the same way slavery became morally indefensible and was banned, so will poverty.

Engineers and software developers around the world are seeking to create technology that lets users touch, grasp and manipulate virtual objects, while feeling like they are actually touching something…
Artificial intelligence could erase many practical advantages of democracy, and erode the ideals of liberty and equality. It will further concentrate the power among a small elite if we don’t take steps to stop it.
The 25 machine learning startups worth watching have shown an ability to attract new customers and grow revenue while continually investing in innovation to deliver unique, highly differentiated apps, systems, platforms and patents that are redefining entire industries.
Biologist Dan Gibson edits and programs DNA, just like coders program a computer. But his "code" creates life, giving scientists the power to convert digital information into biological material like proteins and vaccines. Now he's on to a new project: "biological transportation," which holds
We've discovered that evolution strategies (ES), an optimization technique that's been known for decades, rivals the performance of standard reinforcement learning (RL) techniques on modern RL benchmarks (e.g. Atari/MuJoCo), while overcoming many of RL's inconveniences. In particular, ES is simpler to implement (there is
