The steering wheel setup in the Tesla Model 3 — seen above in a shot from the media event last week — is not the version that will be in the final car, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said tonight in a series of tweets.

Instead, the “real steering controls and system” for the Model 3 feel “like a spaceship.”Musk went on to say that the lack of a traditional dashboard and instrument cluster “will make sense after part 2” of the Model 3 unveiling. That’s expected to come much closer to production.

I think he’s getting rid of the steering wheel and replacing it with a joystick like device.

This is a case where you have the Global Warming Alarmist cult and the Global Warming Deniers cult fighting and both sides ignoring the math. Case in point, Neil Degrasse Tyson claims that the 864 degree temperature in the Earth’s surface is a result of Global Warming Greenhouse Effect. And it’s simply not true. And it can be proven with simple math relying on accepted reference material.

So – here’s the math.

With more that 24 hours to go lines are forming to get in line for the Tesla Model 3. Unlike an Apple line where at the end you get an iPhone – this is a line that lets you pay $1000 to get into a 2+ year long line to get the car. Most people in line today aren’t going to get this car till mid 2018. So a line to get into a line is impressive!

NEW Model 3 specs leaked here!

Yes – it’s a CULT and I may be powerless to resist! I know it’s wrong but it’s likely I’m going to get in line tomorrow!

Democrat Hank Johnson things that Guam will tip over and capsize because of overpopulation. you have to see it to believe it. I’m surprised the guy he’s talking to didn’t bust out laughing.

This will only get worse.

A bill proposed this week by Assemblywoman Pamela R. Lampitt (D., Camden) would impose a fine of up to $50 and possibly 15 days in jail for pedestrians caught using their cellphones without hands-free devices while walking on public sidewalks and along roadways.

If the bill becomes law, “petextrians” – people who text while walking – would face the same penalties as jaywalkers in New Jersey.

“I see it every single day,” Lampitt said Friday. “Maybe they will think twice about it.” Since 2009, pedestrian fatalities have increased by 15 percent to 4,735 in 2013, the report said. Nearly two million pedestrian injuries were related to cellphone use, the report said.texting

Another study, from Safe Kids Worldwide, a Washington-based nonprofit, found that 40 percent of teens said they had been hit or nearly hit by a car, bike, or motorcycle while walking.

The survey of more than 1,000 children between ages 13 and 18 found that 47 percent of those who said they were hit or almost hit were listening to music, 20 percent were talking on the phone, and 18 percent were texting, researchers said.

In a world populated with idiots, the banning of risky behavior has its downside.

In an attempt to better develop their Artificial Intelligence tech, Microsoft just conducted a pretty fascinating experiment. They introduced Tay, an AI designed to speak like a teenage girl, to Twitter.

“Tay is designed to engage and entertain people where they connect with each other online through casual and playful conversation,” Microsoft said when they loosed Tay to the wild. “The more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets.”
Within 24 hours Tay had transformed from something of a friendly blank slate into a sex-crazed, Nazi-loving Donald Trump supporter. Smarter, maybe, but also much, much scarier. At least Microsoft was right about one thing: Tay certainly had “zero chill.”

Here’s what I find interesting about this talk. About 8:30 in you can see how the neural net visualizes images and it seems to be extremely similar to how humans recognize things. It gives me a sense that all the human brain really does is match inputs and memories. The brain is more of an intuition engine rather than a reasoning machine. Looks like they are putting the pieces together and this is a step towards an artificial brain.

Oh this is too good! Christie skips funeral for slain police officer to campaign for Trump and this is what he gets? Feel the Bern!

Donald Trump hit his newfound sidekick Chris Christie with some friendly fire on Monday while trying to attack Ohio Gov. John Kasich ahead of his home state’s Tuesday primary.

Trump, speaking a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio, accused Kasich of having abandoned his gubernatorial duties to campaign in New Hampshire.

“And your governor is absentee,” Trump told the crowd. “He goes to New Hampshire, he’s living in New Hampshire. Living! Where’s Chris, is Chris around? Even more than Chris Christie, he was there, right? Even more.”

Trump then turned to Christie, who was next to him on stage, and said, “I hated to do that, but I had to make my point.”

The timing was less than ideal for New Jersey’s governor. In his home state, he was being criticized Monday for skipping the funeral of Sean Cullen, a state trooper killed last week, in order to campaign with Trump.

This is as good as when Cheney shot a guy in the face and made the guy apologize to him.

Note at 1:58 in Rubio has a grin on his face so big he can’t contain it. I’m surprised they don’t arrest Trump for inciting a riot.

Yet Bernie Sanders wins! Wonder how the polls were so wrong?

Read all about it. Round 2 goes to the computer as well.

A huge milestone has just been reached in the field of artificial intelligence: AlphaGo, a program developed by Google’s DeepMind unit, has defeated legendary Go player Lee Se-dol in the first of five historic matches being held in Seoul, South Korea. Lee resigned after about three and a half hours, with 28 minutes and 28 seconds remaining on his clock. The series is the first time a professional 9-dan Go player has taken on a computer, and Lee is competing for a $1 million prize.

“I was very surprised,” said Lee after the match. “I didn’t expect to lose. [But] I didn’t think AlphaGo would play the game in such a perfect manner.” DeepMind founder Demis Hassabis expressed “huge respect for Lee Se-dol and his amazing skills,” calling the game “hugely exciting” and “very tense.” Team lead David Silver said it was an “amazing game of Go that really pushed AlphaGo to its limits.”

All hail our computer overlords!
