Robots are likely to replace 50 percent of all jobs in the next decade, according to Kai-Fu Lee, founder of venture capital firm Sinovation Ventures and a top voice on tech in China.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the wave of the future, the influential technologist told CNBC, calling it the “singular thing that will be larger than all of human tech revolutions added together, including electricity, [the] industrial revolution, internet, mobile internet — because AI is pervasive.”
“It is the decision engine that will replace people,” Lee said, adding that AI capabilities far exceed those of humanity.

October of this year marks the 50th anniversary of what turned out to be a massive wave of UFO activity in the U.K. My earlier article described several of the more famous cases that hit the headlines and intrigued the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense, in late 1967. Keeping in mind the 50th anniversary angle, I figure why not share with you what amounts to quite a bit of additional data, in case anyone out there reading this may be inspired to look further into this long-gone wave of encounters – and with plenty of time before the mystery hits its 50th, too.
1967: A Wave of UFO Encounters
Wisconsin, America’s Dairyland, is a state in the Upper Midwest bordered by Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and two of the Great Lakes, Superior and Michigan. It’s called America’s Dairyland for a reason. The state of Wisconsin produces more than 13.5 billion kilograms of milk per year, which is equivalent to the milk production of the United Kingdom. It also produces cheese, lots and lots of cheese; more than 1 billion kilograms per year. Fans of Wisconsin’s National Football League team the Green Bay Packers are affectionately called “cheeseheads.” In terms of size and population, Wisconsin hovers around the middle of the United States for both. It’s the 23rd largest state with the 20th largest population. The state is composed of plains, and hills covered with farms. There are forests, though, a lot of them; roughly 16 million acres that cover 46 percent of the state. Famous people from Wisconsin include inventor John Bardeen, the only person to win the Nobel Prize in Physics twice, magician Harry Houdini, pianist Liberace, musician Les Paul, who invented the solid body electric guitar, producer/actor/director Orson Welles, painter Georgia O’Keeffe, circus owners Charles and John Ringling, authors Laura Ingalls Wilder and Thornton Wilder, architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and actors William Defoe, Chris Farley, and Spencer Tracy. And monsters. Lots and lots of monsters. Actually, probably more than its fair share.
Exploring American Monsters: Wisconsin
A paper submitted and published in Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry (Received: 07/11/2016 Accepted: 16/03/2017) by Martin B. Sweatman and Dimitrios Tsikritsis, of the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.We have interpreted much of the symbolism of Göbekli Tepe in terms of astronomical events. By matching
low-relief carvings on some of the pillars at Göbekli Tepe to star asterisms we find compelling evidence that the famous ‘Vulture Stone’ is a date stamp for 10950 BC ± 250 yrs, which corresponds closely to the
proposed Younger Dryas event, estimated at 10890 BC. We also find evidence that a key function of Göbekli
Tepe was to observe meteor showers and record cometary encounters. Indeed, the people of Göbekli Tepe
appear to have had a special interest in the Taurid meteor stream, the same meteor stream that is proposed
as responsible for the Younger-Dryas event. Is Göbekli Tepe the ‘smoking gun’ for the Younger-Dryas
cometary encounter, and hence for coherent catastrophism?
Decoding Göbekli Tepe with archeostronomy: What does the fox say?
Ancient stone carvings confirm that a comet struck the Earth around 11,000BC, a devastating event which wiped out woolly mammoths and sparked the rise of civilisations.
Experts at the University of Edinburgh analysed mysterious symbols carved onto stone pillars at Gobekli Tepe in southern Turkey, to find out if they could be linked to constellations.
The markings suggest that a swarm of comet fragments hit Earth at the exact same time that a mini-ice age struck, changing the entire course of human history.

Suppose all the wildest theories and historical conspiracies of novelist Dan Brown were proven true. And the mind-reading, spoon-bending claims of Israeli psychic Uri Geller all turned out to be real as well.
That wouldn’t be half as extraordinary as the announcement in an obscure scientific journal this month that vindicated 20 years of maverick research and best-selling books by the eccentric archaeologist Graham Hancock.
Is this stone proof an asteroid wiped out a civilisation just like ours 13,000 years ago … and does it vindicate the maverick scholar who says a giant meteorite will destroy us in 2030?
Recently a (peer-reviewed) paper published by M. Sweatman and D. Tsikritsis, two researchers of the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering, has made headlines, suggesting that the Göbekli Tepe enclosures actually were space observatories and that some of the reliefs depict a catastrophic cosmic event…
Archaeoastronomy, meteor showers, mass extinction: What does the fox say? (And what the crane? The aurochs?)
At one time, there had been a general consensus within the archaeological community that humans had arrived in North America no sooner than the end of the last ice age.
Aleš Hrdlička, first curator of physical anthropology at The Smithsonian Institute and founder of The American Journal of Physical Anthropology, had suspected Indians made the journey into the Americas only within the last 3000 years; he even went so far as to say that, rather than the widely accepted “out of Africa theory”, that the cradle of human origins had been European instead.
With the eventual discoveries at Folsom, New Mexico, and subsequent excavations there in the 1920s, conclusive proof of ice age man in the Americas became a scientific reality. By 1943, Hrdlička, it is believed, had gone to his grave in opposition to the reality of such finds, favoring instead the obsolete notion that human settlement in the Americas had been far more recent.
