Technobyte: Elon Musk concerned AI will destroy humanity

Elon Musk is worried that Artificial (AI) will destroy humanity. So he's decided to donate $10 million toward research into how we can keep artificial intelligence safe.

Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has previously expressed concern that something like what happened in The Terminator could happen in real life.

He's also said that AI is "potentially more dangerous than nukes." The purpose of this donation is to both prevent that from happening and to ensure that AI is used for good and to benefit humanity.

Remember those retro boards at airports that flipped through numbers and letters alerting you to flight delays and arrivals?

Connect one of those systems to a wireless network and your social media accounts, and you get Flapit. It is the first available physical counter connected to all the major social media platforms.

Flapit can be placed anywhere: in your store window, on display at your agency, or on the wall of your restaurant or hotel, you name it. Easy to use and fun to watch, Flapit is a powerful, interactive marketing tool for corporations and small businesses.

This week I have been testing the Fritzbox 7490 modem router.

So how is this router different from other out there?

Well the Fritzbox delivers great performance on ADSL line speed. It managed to get an extra 1.5Mbps out of my 10Mbps line.

The router is packed with features like remote login, has USB 3.0 support and can be used for VDSL or ADSL.

You can enjoy lightning-fast connectivity and make progress bars a thing of the past. You can also connect all your phones to the FRITZ!Box 7490 and stay informed of calls and voice messages, even when you’re not at home.
