One of them is crazy cool, and one of them is crazy huh?
First up, scientists are using living, cultured rat brain cells to run a flight simulator program. This is, in fact, crazy! Did science-fiction ever predict organic AI? (I suppose it isn’t really AI…it’s more like sticking instinct into a plane. But as the article states, the neurons learn as they go…if sustained, how much might they learn…?)
Secondly, we’ve got a self-identified “squatter” who broke into another woman’s house with a shovel, moved in a washer and dryer and her pet, and changed the electricity into her name. She was even wearing the owner’s clothing.
