However after trying out the beta that was released yesterday, I am extremely disappointed. The Service Agents simply don’t work. I wish I hadn’t wasted an hour of my day on that platform. Please note that I could have done something extremely retarded and for normal people the marketplace can still work. However when you look at the ratings each Service Agent has received from curious people like me, you’ll notice how a lot of the services have been downvoted a lot.... View Article

Back in 1997 when a computer defeated a human in the game of chess for the first time ever the whole world was shocked and amazed at the same time. The fear of computers taking over our lives inspired many science fiction writers to come up with stories about the apocalypse and futuristic dystopias where machines rule over all humans. Little did we know that less than a decade later an advanced Artificial Intelligence, which is capable of teaching itself, completely destroys a human in the game of Go. What is Go? Go is a centuries old territorial game with the goal... View Article
