Hi,

 

 

On https://www.futureti...ntelligence.htm :

(1) "[..] the latest version of its AI system, AlphaFold, has produce a solution [..]"

 

"produce" ---> "produced"

 

 

 

On https://www.futureti...21stcentury.htm :

(2) "As the Cold War was over and Islamic fundamentalist-related terrorism on the rise, [..]"

 

---> something like:

 

"With the Cold War over and Islamic fundamentalist-related terrorism on the rise, [..]"  or

"As the Cold War was over and Islamic fundamentalist-related terrorism was on the rise, [..]"

 

 

 

(3) "Climate change was beginning to have a significant impact on worldwide commodities; in particular, food and water supplies."

 

---> m-dash (semi-colon being only for full clauses)

 

"Climate change was beginning to have a significant impact on worldwide commodities -- in particular, food and water supplies."

 

 

 

On https://www.futureti...entury/2018.htm :

(4) "the entire development is built to withstand earthquakes; a likely possibility in the Bay Area."

 

---> m-dash or comma

 

"the entire development is built to withstand earthquakes -- a likely possibility in the Bay Area."

I'm going to do a rewrite of that 21st Century page, actually – I think it needs updating slightly.
