More than 50 leading AI and robotics researchers have joined a boycott of South Korea’s KAIST university over the institute’s plans to help develop AI-powered weapons.

The boycott was organized by Professor Toby Walsh of the University of New South Wales, who warned in a press statement that the race to build autonomous weapons had already begun. “We can see prototypes of autonomous weapons under development today by many nations including the US, China,…

Niantic Will Reportedly Settle the ‘Pokemon GO’ Fest Lawsuit for over $1.5 Million

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

You’re probably aware of how big a disaster the Pokemon GO [Free] Fest was in Chicago. Eli was at the fest and was posting updates as the situation progressed. Niantic apologized for the event and posted about how they worked with a partner who spoke to major carriers to ensure everything goes smooth. Things obviously didn’t turn out well and some people sued. We hadn’t heard anything about this until now and it looks like Niantic is going to settle it and a dedicated website will go live for the settlement.

A TechCrunch report has now been published stating that Niantic will finally settle the lawsuit by paying out over $ 1.5 million dollars. This is to cover the costs attendees picked up on the way to the event including hotel costs, airplane tickets, pariking fees, and more. An official website is supposed to go up for the settlement. People claiming to be a part of the settlement will need to have been checked in at the fest.

Any money left over after all claims and lawyer fees in addition to other costs will be split evenly and donated to the non profit organization Chicago Run and the Illinois Bar foundation. No money will come back to Niantic as per the report. If you missed out on the fest, read up here on what actually went down.

China’s out-of-control space station — Tiangong-1 — has at last plunged through Earth’s atmosphere and landed somewhere over the southern Pacific Ocean. The spiraling spacecraft made its descent at around 8:16PM ET on April 1st, according to US Strategic Command, which was able to confirm the exact point of reentry along with organizations in eight other countries. The vehicle’s fall puts an end to the space station’s seven years in orbit, and it managed not to hit any populated areas on the way down.

It was hard to know exactly where Tiangong-1 was going to make its final descent, which is the case for most falling space debris. Sunday afternoon, trackers were able to narrow down the time of the vehicle’s reentry to a three- to…
