The Moral Hazards and Legal Conundrums of Our Robot-Filled Future | Science | WIRED | Soup for thought | Scoop.it
Whether you find it exhilarating or terrifying (or both), progress in robotics and related fields like AI is raising new ethical quandaries and challenging legal codes that were created for a world in which a sharp line separates man from machine. Last week, roboticists, legal scholars, and other experts met at the University of California, Berkeley law school to talk through some of the social, moral, and legal hazards that are likely to arise as that line starts to blur.

The End of Aspiration Is Near | Soup for thought | Scoop.it
There’s a word I’d like to strike from business jargon: aspirational. It’s a dreadful neologism, about as bad as incentivize, and only slightly better than incent. But more to the point: I’d like to kill it because it’s on the verge of irrelevance. As typically defined, a brand is “aspirational”...
