Vulcan 3

Artificially intelligent self-modifying supercomputer. (Read the full article)

"An interesting story appeared about a Japanese drink company that put a computer on its board of directors: "Will VITAL [Validating Investment Tool for Advancing Life Sciences] actually be incorporated into the board of director meetings? "-On the meetings investors will firstly discuss the analytical reviews made by VITAL. All the decisions on investing will be made strictly after VITAL provides itís data. We say that VITAL has been acknowledged as an equal member of the board of directors, because itís opinion (actually, the analysis) will be considered as probably the most important one. So basically yes, it will be incorporated into meetings. "Will it be a bunch of humans plus one computer sitting around a table? "-No, donít take it literally. "And will people actually take its advice as seriously as the advice from other board members? "-Humans are emotional and subjective. They can make mistakes, but unlike the machines they can make brilliant intuitive decisions. Machines like VITAL use only logic. The intuition of the human investors together with machineís logic with give a perfect collaborative team. The risk of the mistake will be minimized." https://www.breitbart.com/blog/2014/05/15/robot-board/ Via the always relevant Frolix_8. https://fraser.typepad.com/frolix_8/2014/05/which-pkd-story-are-we-in-today-6.html"
