One wonders how bad things have gotten, need to look at the code.
Rather, what kind of code that is being written for these programs.
After all that is said and done, one must realize that not only the code the developers use
Is not only based on academic premises, but the gunk in the code shows this weakness.

First Artificial Intelligence program to defeat a top professional Starcraft player. Fascinating. #eSports

deepmind.com/blog/alphastar…
Had never considered how a real time war game such as Starcraft is considerably more complex for a computer to master than Chess or Go (Go is orders of magnitude more complex than chess).
Combine an AI program capable of beating humans at everything with a Boston Dynamics robot.

Which jobs will not be replaced by robots in a not so distant future?

0/ Having trouble staying on top of all the latest in the world of #crypto and #blockchain? I've got you covered. Well, at least for the last 24 hours or so 💁‍♂️

Let's get this thread going shall we.
1/ 📝 @DPRating published the September edition of its #GitHub Audit, rating more than 200 #crypto and #blockchain projects.

Teams that ranked disproportionately well included @Raiden_Network [ $RDN ], @NulsService [ $NULS ], @ParticlProject [ $PART ], and @POANetwork [ $POA ].
2/ ♻️ @PowerLedger_io [ $POWR ] introduced Asset Germination Events (AGEs), furthering the utility of its native #crypto token.

AGEs will allow people to invest in and co-own energy assets. More details to come via a Friday AMA. medium.com/power-ledger/p…

As a journalist who has worked with #gaming and #eSports as a subject (though not exclusively), I want to recommend to other journalists one thing: when talking about the gamer public/majority opinion, e.g. "gamers were upset about x", give examples of threads that support that.
If you're going to tell people that an opinion is widely accepted or something is believed by "a majority of gamers" you must give a timeline of that belief. Show different sources, different voices, different public figures who hold that belief. Show people believing it!
You can't just assume an opinion is de facto accepted, and that acceptance is widely known. If you want to say something like "the majority of the x gamer community feels y" you either SHOW that belief or you admit you're peddling stereotypes, lies, and exaggeration.
