Great reality-check, as usual, on the risks of getting carried away with relative risks at the expense of the actual likelihood of coming to a sticky end!

Toy Story 4 is quite wonderful - far and away my favorite movie of the year, and yes, that does include Avengers: Endgame!

Parents! Be prepared for those long summer holidays by buying "Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder" now. Fun, cheap, easy to do science activities, even if you know no science yourself:

I didn't see this article,the ethical contexts surrounding a $188 million donation from Blackstone seems to have been uninteresting to most of the tech/AI ethics community. I have tried to open this to discussion since the story broke but no real engagement from AI/ethics leaders
