  1. Only two numbers count in the measurement of performance in a time series such as stock price returns, the first day and the last. Everything in between those two days can vary infinitely without affecting the average return over the period. It’s just the math. The results for 2.5 years in COVID is essentially zero.

    The second came from Malwarebytes how AI will enable autocratic regimes to better spy on political dissenters.

    AI – making life better and better!

  3. If artificial general intelligence becomes a reality, then all bets are off.
