But another is that our universe is a computer simulation, with someone (perhaps an advanced alien species) fine-tuning the conditions. In a virtual reality, this limit would correspond to the speed limit of the processor, or the processing power limit. Similarly, virtual reality needs an observer or programmer for things to happen. AdvertisementIt is reasonable to assume that a simulated universe would contain a lot of information bits everywhere around us.

While artificial intelligence has taken the limelight over the past year, technology that can appear to operate like human brains has been top of mind for researchers, investors and tech executives in Silicon Valley and beyond for more than a decade. Here are some of the people involved in the origins of the modern A.I. lab that made the chatbot ChatGPT that went viral over the past year and ushered in recognition of the power of generative artificial intelligence. Mr. Altman helped start OpenAI after meeting with Elon Musk about the technology in 2015. At the time, Mr. Altman ran Y Combinator, the Silicon Valley start-up incubator.

Elon Musk filed new documents in Texas court asking a judge to restrict access to his custody battle. Attorneys for Musk want a judge to issue a protective order before he agrees to sit for a deposition. Musk also asked a judge to suspend public access to documents in the case, arguing the potential risk to his children outweighs any public interest in the high-profile custody battle. AdvertisementMusk was first to strike, however, quietly suing Grimes in Texas court in September to establish a "parent-child" relationship with the kids. AdvertisementA protective order would guarantee the information Musk reveals during a deposition remains private and inaccessible to the public, Melcher added.

My favorite “Twilight Zone” episode is the one where aliens land and, in a sign of their peaceful intentions, give world leaders a book. Government cryptographers work to translate the alien language. They decipher the title — “To Serve Man” — and that’s reassuring, so interplanetary shuttles are set up. But as the cryptographers proceed, they realize — too late — that it’s a cookbook. It was founded in 2015 as a nonprofit to serve man, to keep an eye on galloping A.I.

Prophetic, a new startup founded earlier this year, is developing a device to induce lucid dreaming. AdvertisementA new venture-backed startup is capitalizing on the productivity that can be channeled while lucid dreaming, Fortune reports. Allowing customers to tap into lucid dreaming could pave the way for productivity at nighttime— for example, engineers could code in their sleep, per Fortune. Prophetic wants to subvert the lack of activity that happens during sleep by inducing a lucid dream state. The product is grounded in ongoing research by the Donders Institute in the Netherlands that targets specific brain areas and ultrasound frequencies for optimal lucid dream induction.

Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett walks through the exhibit hall as shareholders gather to hear from the billionaire investor at Berkshire Hathaway Inc's annual shareholder meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, U.S., May 4, 2019. Berkshire owns 80% of Pilot, having paid the Haslams $2.76 billion for a 38.6% stake in 2017 and $8.2 billion for another 41.4% in January. The Haslams sued Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire in October, accusing it of seeking a "windfall" by adopting "pushdown" accounting for Pilot. Berkshire countersued on Nov. 28, saying Jimmy Haslam tried to bribe Pilot executives with millions of dollars to inflate earnings in 2023 at the expense of future years. According to court papers, the Haslams believe the 20% Pilot stake was worth $3.2 billion before Berkshire's accounting change, an amount Berkshire disputes.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk delivered the company’s first Cybertruck pickups to customers at an event in Texas on Thursday. Photo: TeslaThe Cybertruck isn’t good for Tesla ’s finances, so it had better be great for the brand. On Thursday afternoon in Austin, Texas, two years later than initially planned, the electric-vehicle pioneer finally delivered its first pickup trucks, setting the financial ball rolling on its first new product since the Model Y started shipping almost four years ago. But we already know this won’t be a money-spinner for Tesla, at least not in 2024. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said in October it might take 18 months to increase output to the point where the Cybertruck makes a significant contribution to cash flows.

The Cybertruck will start at $60,990, tens of thousands more than what Tesla promised in 2019. It was the opposite, horrible launch event, disappointing range, almost abusive pricing considering what was promised," wrote one Tesla fan on Reddit . "For me, this potential purchase was always always about two things, setting aside the design: range & price. The company is offering a "range extender" which it says will bring the Cybertruck closer to its promised range. Prominent tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee also criticized the discrepancy between what Tesla promised in 2019 and what it is offering now.

Opinion | Elon Musk Is Making a Giant Mistake … Unless?
  + stars: | 2023-12-01 | by ( Peter Coy | )   time to read: +1 min
Elon Musk is so smart that you have to wonder if trashing X, formerly Twitter, is somehow in his best interest. This couldn’t possibly be one giant mistake, could it? Actually I think it is a giant mistake. There is, however, an unlikely scenario where damaging X in the short run might benefit Musk in the long run. He cut more than three-quarters of the staff, including most of those involved in keeping hate speech off the platform, which predictably resulted in more hate speech and fewer advertisers.

New York CNN —Walmart confirmed on Friday that it is not advertising on X, the social media platform owned by Elon Musk and formerly known as Twitter. “We aren’t advertising on X as we’ve found other platforms to better reach our customers,” a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement to CNN. A number of prominent brands paused their advertising on X, last month following Musk’s public embrace of an antisemitic conspiracy theory favored by White supremacists. “I don’t want them to advertise,” Musk said at the New York Times DealBook Summit in New York. “If anyone is killing X, it’s Elon Musk – not advertisers,” she said.
