  1. From Elon to "Ex Machina," the "demon" AI space is getting a bad rap. Enter Amy, x.ai's robot personal assistant

    Artificial intelligence is becoming the de facto trope in horror movies — and for fatalists to point to — as the potential means by which the human race does itself in.

  2. "I'm more similar to Elon." The 5 silliest things Chris Sacca said yesterday

    Chris Sacca is a rich man and is therefore occasionally asked to say things on television. As an early investor in Twitter and Uber, Sacca is living proof that you don't have to be right all the time -- or even most the time -- to make a fortune in Silicon Valley. As for his influence, it's likely more than mere coincidence that Dick Costolo stepped down not long after Sacca wrote 8,500 words on everything the Twitter CEO had been doing wrong. (Plus, he's also a poet when it comes to profanity, as this supercut of the most vulgar PandoMonthly moments proves).

  3. Tesla expands from luxury vehicles to wall-mounted batteries

    Tesla Motors has created a new division called Tesla Energy. Now, in addition to making electric vehicles for rich people, it will also make "Powerwalls" for middle-class environmentalists and bigger batteries for corporate customers.

  4. The TIME 100, which celebrates mass murderers, dictators, and the occasional tech founder, needs to be stopped

    As TIME Magazine joins dozens of other storied periodicals in their weary march toward post-digital irrelevance, one time-honored and colossally arbitrary tradition has held firm: The selection of "Man of the Year" and its bastard cousin, the TIME 100 list of the world's most influential people. Despite years of embarrassing choices, today the magazine continued the latter franchise with a list that, as in years past, lionizes mass murderers, sadistic dictators, and corrupt political powerbrokers in the same breath as actors and pop stars. And by treating war criminals and despots as if they were as innocuous as celebrities, TIME obscures the dire human costs wrought by history, as well as those casualties to come.

  6. Microsoft's top researcher weighs in on whether artificial intelligence will end humanity

    Microsoft's research chief has entered the battle between those who believe artificial intelligence could be the end of the human race and those who think that's malarkey.

  7. Freaked out by artificial intelligence? Don't watch the trailer to "Ex Machina"

    One of the good things about living in a scarily disruptive era of unprecedented surveillance and technology is that it makes for great fodder for artists. From "Her" to "Black Mirror," the past couple years have brought some terrifying and terrifically entertaining science fiction stories that speak volumes about today's world. After all, with technological advancement moving faster than ever, the future worlds imagined by these films have never been closer to reality.

  8. Elon Musk’s unveils “the D”: Hands on (and off) with Tesla’s newest AWD luxury supercar, now featuring Autopilot

    The hottest ticket in LA last night wasn't to President Obama's $34,000 per plate dinner at Gwyneth Paltrow's house. It was to Elon Musk's sold out unveiling of the "D," a mysterious upgrade to his already popular Model S sedan. The event was held in a tented space along the Hawthorne Airport runway that looked better suited to a private concert or a Hollywood awards ceremony, complete with velvet ropes, a red carpet, a step and repeat wall, spot lights, and center stage, backed by a massive screen.
