It's insane. I kept reading and reading and I'm like, "When is he gonna just get to the point?!"

I wasted 10 minutes and I still don't know why Casper sued the red-haired guy.

A video posted on the forums a while back (wendover maybe? @TimT )  explained that the demise of the Concord was primarily because the sonic boom prevents it from being used over population centers.  That makes it uneconomical to operate. This article does not address that at all.
Just read a Bloomberg article on how they just designed a plane that doesn't boom. If it works NYC lax can be cut in half

Lacking from this teenager's insightful article is the place of "modern orthodoxy" within the spectrum of Torah Judaism. If changes he calls for actually take place, what is MO?

That maximum is probably correlated with the maximum number of whatsapp groups you can get the article in

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/25/masayoshi-son-ceo-of-softbank-robots-will-have-an-iq-of-10000.html

The idea that at some point humanity will create "Strong AI" and that may lead to catastrophy is wide spread and held by lots of very intelligent people.  It is harder to find, but a google search will turn up other seemingly intelligent people who believe strong AI is unlikely or impossible.

I have a clear religious bias that pushes in to me to the latter group (yes, I consider myself intelligent :D) but I still can't understand how a neutral unbiased thinking person can consider Strong AI as a serious possibility. Our ability to think the way we do is inseparable from our consciousness and self awareness.  Modern science cannot explain our consciousness and self awareness.  Until it can, isn't it obviously fanciful to think we can recreate anything similar to the human brain in a computer or networks of them?
