South Korea trumpets $860-million AI fund after AlphaGo 'shock'


 South Korean people did take this seriously....

From the news:
Scrambling to respond to the success of Google DeepMind’s world-beating Go program AlphaGo, South Korea announced on 17 March that it would invest $863 million (1 trillion won) in artificial-intelligence (AI) research over the next five years. It is not immediately clear whether the cash represents new funding, or had been previously allocated to AI efforts. But it does include the founding of a high-profile, public–private research centre with participation from several Korean conglomerates, including Samsung, LG Electronics and Hyundai Motor, as well as the technology firm Naver, based near Seoul.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this site with anyone who still glances at this blog. My older brother put it together and I'm helping him get it out on the web. Drop me a line if you have any suggestions or encounter anything that looks like a bug. If you know of any good free stuff out there (including open source software and free ware please add it.

"Freenormous is a social site oriented solely on the idea of free stuff. It has free samples, free stuff, free after rebate items, etc. The point is voting up legit offers (say an offer for Dove Soap on Dove.com) as opposed to scammy offers. It's a digg clone with a different angle."

Thanks,
