AI Just Controlled a Military Plane For the First Time Ever

On December 15, the United States Air Force successfully flew an AI copilot on a U-2 spy plane in California, marking the first time AI has controlled a U.S. military system. Dr. Will Roper, the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, reveals how he and his team made history: With call sign ARTUu, we trained uZero -- a world-leading computer program that dominates chess, Go, and even video games without prior knowledge of their rules -- to operate a U-2 sp...

Moon+ reader on boox nova 3

My understanding is that u can put the Google play store on the boox nova 3 eink reader. Has anyone used moon+ reader on it? If so how does it run? All the features working? Moon+ seems to be the only reader I've found that has a library view which puts part of the book description right there without having to go clicking each book, which I find totally logical but I guess reader designers don't 😠 which is why I want to keep using that app.

AutoLeap says it will repair your lousy relationship with car shops

No one likes having to go the automotive repair shop. There’s little transparency into what happens after a car is dropped off, invoices are often little more than a series of illegible bullet points, and the experience often feels chaotic. AutoLeap, a six-month-old, Toronto-based startup that quietly raised $5 million in seed funding in September, thinks its team can figure out how to repair that broken experience by bringing car repair shops into the 21st century at long last. Its big idea is ...

Why Google's Big 'Four Year' Android Update Promise Is a Little Misleading

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Android Police: Today, Google and Qualcomm announced what seemed like a big improvement to updates for Android smartphones. The headlines (ours included! We were confused, too) largely read as though Android phones with Qualcomm chipsets would now receive "four years" of Android updates, an additional year on top of what manufacturers like Google and now Samsung have offered on their top-tier smartphones. Except, that's not actually what it said. After co...

If you’re a Google TV user who’s been dying to watch some Apple TV+ content, I have some good news: an Apple TV app is finally coming to the latest Chromecast in “early 2021.” As noted by Google in its announcement post, that will make the Chromecast with Google TV “one of the only streaming devices will all the major video subscriptions.” Apple TV+ was pretty much the only one left. Google specifically mentions the latest Chromecast in its blog post, not Android TV devices in general, so it’s n...
