How to Get It Done: Project Management Tips for Content Marketing Managers

When I was in high school, we had a science class project in which we were grouped into teams, and tasked with building a catapult. Whichever contraption could launch a tennis ball the farthest would win the contest. We quickly learned that the hardest part wasn’t constructing the actual catapult. It was wrangling all the team members, divvying up assignments, and keeping a collective group of energetic teenagers on track. In hindsight, maybe that was the point. Managing Content Marketi...

Can We Stop AI Outsmarting Humanity?

The spectre of superintelligent machines doing us harm is not just science fiction, technologists say -- so how can we ensure AI remains 'friendly' to its makers? From a story: Jaan Tallinn (co-founder of Skype) warns that any approach to AI safety will be hard to get right.

This ancient sea creature had 18 tentacles that funneled food into its gaping mouth — and it may be the ancestor of an even creepier ocean animal

Scientists have discovered a 518-million-year-old fossil found in South China that looks like a monster from Star Wars. They describe it in a new study. The creature, called Daihua sanqiong, sat on the ocean floor like a sea anemone, pulling in unsuspecting prey with 18 long tentacles covered in cilia. The animal could be an ancestor of  comb jellies: carnivorous, predatory blobs that zigzag through the ocean. Upon first glance, this fossilized sea creature looks more like the Sarlacc f...
