The release of GPT3, I thought this was primitive AGI but I was corrected and told it isn't, we seem so close to first gen AGI it feels like we are actually just approaching the knee of the curve for real

Can you imagine somebody from 1970 or 1980 witnessing something like this?

/\ Now that is impressive. The application in theme parks or even malls comes to mind.

Stop, wait a minute! The screenshot you've made means you have the PDF newspaper. A question: from where did you get this? Are there any other newspapers on this site? I'm only asking because there are few good sites to download the PDF magazines... but newspapers?

They're eNewspapers. Most issues of the LAtimes comes with electronic versions like this because it's bundled as part of the subscription plan. You can buy them individually too.

When AI Dungeon 2 came out. I was blown away by its endless content and thought "this makes other games look borderline restrictive”. I am a proud Premium subscriber now, helping the future of games come to shape.

Maybe when I realize that almost twenty years has already passed since I had immigrated to the US (in March 2001)? ;)

Bowel cancer screening capsules the latest in at-home care trend

Thu 11 Mar 2021 00.01 GMT

People will be able to check if they have bowel cancer by swallowing a tiny capsule containing miniature cameras, in an extension of patient self-care.

In what experts described as a trend towards more NHS at-home care, hastened by the Covid-19 pandemic, thousands of people in England will be able to avoid the discomfort of having a camera inserted into their bowel by instead swallowing a capsule the size of a cod liver oil tablet.

Pictures transmitted from inside their body during the painless procedure will help doctors judge whether the person has bowel cancer, the second deadliest form of the disease in the UK.

The boss of the NHS in England said the procedure, known as a colon capsule endoscopy, is an example of “sci-fi” medicine increasingly deployed to improve care. One of the country’s top doctors said the capsules illustrated a major shift of healthcare out of hospitals that will see more and more diagnosis and treatment of illness done at home.

[...]

“What sounds like sci-fi is now becoming a reality, and as these minute cameras pass through your body, they take two pictures per second, checking for signs of cancer and other conditions like Crohn’s disease.”
