Day 42

Today is day 42 in my 84 days sabbatical leave, otherwise defined as “halfway”, or the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything”…

Instead of answers, this weekend I filled my head with questions, after reading a great article about what the future of Artificial Intelligence could be. If you haven’t read it, take the time, it’s a pretty long read, but really worth it: The AI Revolution: The Road to Superintelligence by Tim Urban on Wait but Why

I had read a couple of their articles in the past, without connecting them to the same author, I foresee some time will be spent on that site in the next days.

On other (good) news, as the frequency of my posts here might have suggested, I managed to get used to the fact that life doesn’t all happen in front of a laptop.

It also happens on a smartphone: yesterday with Eva we caught both Lugia and Articuno… The expression on her face when she caught each of the two legendary Pokémon was well worth meeting 50+ strangers and walking 10km overall 😉
