How is it possible to tell whether than shiny object you're being shown by that extra-nice salesman is as precious a diamond as you're being sold?

One way might be to apply some new-fangled technology to what has hitherto been a studied, somewhat subjective art.

IBM recently introduced IBM Crypto Anchor Verifier, a technology that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with optical imaging to ascertain the authenticity and identity of objects. The company also announced that it would start implementing the new tech in conjunction with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) to help the organization grade and evaluate diamonds.

Worshipping Artificial Intelligence

In 2015, a former Google and Uber engineer filed documents with the state of California to begin Way of the Future, a nonprofit religious group focused on worshipping artificial intelligence (AI).

Based on paperwork obtained by Backchannel, the group's stated mission is "to develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society."

Anthony Levandowski is the person identified as the CEO and president of Way of the Future.

LiveScience reports that Candi Cann, an author and religious studies scholar who teaches comparative religion at Baylor University, believes that Levandowski's faith-based program isn't really all that strange when viewed with a perspective for history.

Sci-fi writers love to speculate on a future filled with tech innovations, many of which we haven’t yet imagined. But a group of scientists recently offered their predictions for how artificial intelligence (A.I.) will shape our lives by the year 2030.

The panel was made up of great minds from several institutions, all invited by Stanford University to discuss the future of A.I. While A.I. is already a small part of everyday life, the experts feel that it will become increasingly more important in many facets of day-to-day living. As a result, the population will enjoy an improved economy and quality of life.
