“You can’t rehearse what you ain’t invented yet.”

AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol

AlphaGo won twice against Lee Sedol, one of the greatest Go players in history. This is a significant milestone in the history of AI, because the sheer scale of the problem space Go has is one of the biggest among the games humans play.

This makes me think hard about how and what to teach our future generation to prepare for the era when people will blindly follow many decisions that have been made by AI without (or incapable of) fully comprehending their meaning and consequences.

Quote: Elon Musk on Working Hours

“If other people are putting in 40-hour workweeks, and you’re putting in 100-hour workweeks, then, even if you’re doing the same thing, you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve.”

– Elon Musk (video)

Quote: Muhammad Ali on Impossible

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

– Muhammad Ali
