Ever since almost a decade ago MS released a few VS previews with broken installs and told everyone to reload their OS I've refused to install any pre-release MS products. If they'd responded to community outrage by defenestrating the PMs involved from a 10th story window and released working uninstallers at the time I might've been willing to relent; but they didn't and at this point the bridge is a mass of radioactive rubble at the bottom of the river and the site is too poisoned to allow rebuilding for generations.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

The brain is the one example we have of truly intelligent computation
He must know people that I don't know.
But he's giving a straw-man argument.
No-one ever said that backpropagation mimics the brain (or if they did, they were misinformed).
Nothing we do in AI mimics the brain; none of the AI methodologies -- not even his Holy Grail neural networks, which a lot of poorly informed people have declared as mimicking the brain.
The brain works with what is easiest defined as "highly compressed and merged 3D movies with smells and other sensory records attached". We don't have anything of artifice that can even come close to processing brain-level quantities of such data feeds -- Hell, we don't even have data of that kind, let alone the capacity to process it!
So he's just talking the usual "what I'm doing is perfect, and what everyone who doesn't do what I'm doing is inferior!" bollocks.

On private planes that is not a requirement and I know of no incidents ever caused by a cellular phone on an airplane. I fly on our corporate planes occasionally and I have seen pilots in the cockpits on their phones. We get no service at altitude so I'm not sure what they were doing.
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Well - I don't have such a phone. Perhaps they'll do for that what they do for earphones and give them out to the passengers. Kind of a disposable cell phone. Or maybe even build it into the seat (or was that already mentioned).
