Pac-12’s greatest games No. 1: USC, UCLA, Simpson’s legendary run and the ’67 national title (50 years ago today)

My assumption: The 2006 Rose Bowl would be No. 1. I was there, it was incredible — it’s generally regarded as the greatest game ever played.

How much autonomy is too much for AI?

AI has the power to make decisions on our behalf and the world is getting excited. But there’s always that nagging question: Who will be the servant and who will be the master? Should we approach AI from a completely different angle? Should we actually hand over control at all and let the AI make its own decisions? Well, to an extent, in some circumstances, we’re going to have to let go of the reins. AI with no decision-making power really is not AI at all.
