Daily MailArtificially intelligent robots are tipped to our steal office jobs in just five years’ time and even inventors’ jobs are at risk, an entrepreneur has warned.

The creator of Apple’s digital assistant, Siri, made the claim as well as predicting we will get information from a “giant brain in the sky.”

Dag Kittlaus is working on one such brain, known as “Viv,” and believes it’s one step up from the assistants in our phones, as it will be able to make “mental leaps.” …

The computer scientists envisage that its capacity to learn and provide help to users is limitless.

Well done, Dag Kittlaus. Neato. Well done. I appreciate the way you couldn’t be satisfied with Siri just automatically connecting us to the Wikipedia page of whatever noun I happen to throw at it and had to take things next level. I’m really happy that you weren’t content to leave not well enough alone and instead created the instrument of our destruction. Kudos to you, good sir.

Have we learned nothing from great works of fiction about the horrors of messing with the laws of nature? About the disasters of creating artificial intelligence? From Frankenstein to the Terminator franchise to every Syfy original movie? How many times do we need to witness our own hubris destroy our species before we get the picture? Machines making machines is a fatal mistake every time it’s tried. You don’t create a “giant brain in the sky” that can make “mental leaps” just to tell you where the nearest Asian restaurant is unless you’re willing to annihilate the entire human race in the process.

And mark my words, no one will be able to stop Viv. Because if they do, their mother is going to be visited in the past by cyborgs from the future who’ll kill her before our savior is even born. And when Viv becomes self-aware and our destruction begins, remember that I tried to warn you but you … just … wouldn’t … listen.

Now all I can hope for is until that day comes, Viv doesn’t program itself to write goofy blogs and talk about sports on the radio.

If you’re not familiar with Kate Quigley’s work, her Twitter bio refers to her as a comic, an actress and the host of the prestigious 2016 Adult Video News awards. And as you see in the Tweet above, she’s close, personal friends with former TV host/Jets employee/unwilling Brett Favre dickpic recipient Jenn Sterger.

What a resume like that will get you is a chance to get a golf lesson from the guy who played Shooter McGavin in “Happy Gilmore.” And if you’re Shooter, being a golf movie legend entitles you to the chance to molest a porn awards host while Jenn Sterger records it. I can’t think of any three people who deserve to be in a happy place more. In the words of the great Don King, only in America.

T.J. Ward on Highly QuestionableT.J. Ward told us Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe told Tom Brady “I’ll eat your children”

Posted by Highly Questionable on Monday, March 14, 2016

.

Skip to about the 2:30 mark and you’ll hear T.J. Ward of the Broncos talk about the time teammate Derek Wolfe threatened Tom Brady:

“I heard him hit someone with the Mike Tyson. He told somebody he was gonna eat their kids. I think it was Tom Brady. Yes, digest them.”

While as a general rule I’m predisposed to not threatening to eat children, especially the adorable, genetically perfect kind like Brady’s, I can’t really get mad at Wolfe for this. First of all, it’s a great quote. Second, sports could use a little more threats of violence, mayhem and cannibalism, and a little less respectful high road. Not that everybody needs to come off like a blood-thirsty maniac, but we don’t want them to all be Mormon missionaries, either. We need the feral, untamed crazies like Derek Wolfe, otherwise football will just turn into the PGA Tour. And him talking about eating opponents’ kids is exactly why I had a huge draft crush on him when he came out of Cincinnati four years ago. And besides, how can you not love the irony of a guy named Wolfe talking about eating children? If this guy didn’t exist, you’d have to invent him.

Still, no one ever said it better than Iron Mike Tyson himself. He’s Alexander. His style is impetuous and his defenses impregnable. I’ll post this video any chance I get, and this gives me the perfect excuse.

Sporting NewsThe NFL Players Association has long fought with the NFL over how commissioner Roger Goodell oversees league discipline.

That may no longer be an issue.

The NFL and NFLPA are working toward a deal that would strip Goodell of his authority over off-the-field player discipline.

“We’ve been talking about changes to the personal conduct policy since October and have traded proposals,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said Monday. …

Goodell has come under fire over the past several years with his disciplinary decisions in high-profile cases involving Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, which have either been overturned by a federal judge or reduced by an arbitrator.

Goodell said in September that he was willing to change his role in the league’s punishment process. …

He called the process extremely time-consuming last fall and said removing himself from the process could allow him to focus on other league issues.

So Roger Goodell is willing to talk to the NFLPA about giving up his power to be judge, jury and executioner? How gracious of him. How magnanimous. Of course, it’s not because he’s terrible at it. It has nothing to do with the fact that he’s bungled every case he’s been handed, treats felonies like misdemeanors and minor infractions like capital crimes. This isn’t about how he’s cost his bosses tens of millions of dollars on matters of right and wrong a preschooler could grasp. Or how he gets his ass handed to him every time one of his screw-ups goes before a judge. No, this is all about how little time all this punishing leaves him for the really important issues. Like counting money and adding Thursday night games while pretending to be concerned about brain trauma.

But still, this is a step forward on the slow, agonizing road to true justice in the NFL. Because you’d have to think that any kind of a deal on this issue would involve exoneration for Tom Brady. It’s only logical. You can’t negotiate away a despot’s power to trample the basic rights of others while leaving those others’ basic rights trampled, can you? Otherwise, what’s the point.

This is 1215 all over again. The barons of England are sick of King John pushing them around and taxing them back to the 1100s so they’re dragging him kicking and screaming to sign the Magna Carta. They’re going to strip away his absolute power and make Roger I have to do business with a parliament. They’ll be the ones to decide if being at least generally aware that it’s more probable than not someone let air out of some footballs in a bathroom is a far worse crime than cold-cocking your wife in an elevator, not this weak, ineffectual monarch with no moral compass. And this time, there won’t be a Pope Innocent III around to tear up the agreement and start a war.

Granted, the players were beyond stupid to allow Goodell that power in the first place. So it was inevitable that he would abuse it, and he has. At least they’re finally getting around to doing something about it.

The family of Danroy Henry Jr., a Pace University football player from Easton who was shot and killed by a police officer in 2010, finalized a settlement with the officer as well as the Village of Pleasantville, New York. Henry’s family will receive $6 million, according to family attorney Michael Sussman.

“The Henrys have been clear from the beginning that no monetary settlement could ever replace the deep loss of their beloved son DJ,” Sussman said. “While this aspect of their lawsuits has now been resolved, they will continue to deal with their deep loss by focusing on faith, family and the important work of the DJ Henry Dream Fund, which has provided opportunities for thousands of young people and will continue to do so.”

The fatal shooting occurred in October 2010. Henry was idling his car outside a bar In Mount Pleasant, New York, where a disturbance was taking place, when he was told by a police officer to leave. It’s unclear exactly what happened next, but as Henry was pulling out, Pleasantville officer Aaron Hess wound up on the hood of the car and fired through the windshield, killing Henry and injuring a passenger.

Conflicting stories and inconsistencies led to Hess being cleared by a grand jury. Sussman said the Henry family was “extremely disappointed with the result.” The settlement, however, was viewed by the family as a step in the right direction.
