“Google has always been an artificial intelligence company, so it really shouldn’t have been a surprise that Ray Kurzweil, one of the leading scientists in the field, joined the search giant late last year. Nonetheless, the hiring raised some eyebrows, since Kurzweil is perhaps the most prominent proselytizer of “hard AI,” which argues that it is possible to create consciousness in an artificial being. Add to this Google’s revelation that it is using techniques of deep learning to produce an artificial brain, and a subsequent hiring of the godfather of computer neural nets Geoffrey Hinton, and it would seem that Google is becoming the most daring developer of AI, a fact that some may consider thrilling and others deeply unsettling. Or both.”

In Radio Contact with Mars

“Tesla believed he communicated with men on Mars after he began using his gravitic waves to send and receive “signals” to other worlds.  The story goes (as related by Robert A. Nelson in his 1998 paper:  “Communicating with Mars:  The Experiments of Tesla & Hodowanec”), that Tesla discovered a means to detect electrical disturbances anywhere within a thousand miles of his location.  In Nelson’s piece, we read about Tesla’s Colorado Springs’ “wireless lighting” featured in The Prestige.   Nelson notes his device was called the Magnifying Transmitter.  When using this technology, Tesla claimed he received signals originating from Mars.”
