Sponsored Post: Introducing the Seeker and the Infiniti Q30


To support the launch of the all-new Q30, Infiniti created the Seeker – a modern day version of the traditional compass, inspired by the vehicle.

With the ability to point you to any destination on Earth, the Seeker was put in the hands of a number of influencers, including Instagrammer Michael Schulz, aka @berlinstagram, who got a chance to test drive the new Q30. Seeker led the way to the car, which was hidden in a secret Berlin location.

Useless Info of the Day: How Often the Tears of Joy Emoji is Used on Twitter


File this under: “If you’re really bored”. Matthew Rothenberg has created a website that tracks every time someone tweets an emoji, in real-time. It’s actually kinda scary how often people are using that tears of joy emoji. I have to admit I spent a minute watching and waiting until one of the bottom emojis was used.

Can someone please make this into a screensaver? Check out Emojitracker. (Thanks for the tip, Eric.)

Machines Are Going to Take Over the World, Countdown To Singularity Tells Us How They Do It


The Singularity refers to the moment Artificial Intelligence will exceed that of Human Intelligence and our capacity to control it. Scientists believe this event will take place around the year 2045. Lucky for us, the artists behind Countdown To Singularity are taking this existential threat seriously. Bas van de Poel, the project’s founder and curator, asked contributors to explore the different ways AI could bring us down. The result is a series of scenarios ranging from the development of amoral mechanized weapons systems to the slightly more mundane idea that we could all eventually be turned into paperclips.

Click below for a selection of the submissions. You can also visit the project website or click here to join the likes of Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, and Steve Wozniak in signing the Future of Life Institute’s open letter calling for AI safety research.
