The nerve of robots these days. You go to the trouble of showing one how to throw a ball through a hoop (sure, you missed a time or two, but you're human — it's expected) and the cheeky little bastard goes and improves upon your demonstration until it's sinking shots like Jordan. Researchers at the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory at EPFL in Switzerland, have developed algorithms that robots can use to analyse your half-assed skyhook. The robot then figures out both what you're trying to do and what you're doing wrong (besides not being Dr. J) before perfecting its own technique. No word yet on whether it has learned the art of trash-talking, but once it does, rest assured it's gonna kick your arse at that too, sucka.

Photo. Alex Cranz (Gizmodo) Last year AMD finally gave us something we desperately needed with the release of Ryzen. A viable rival to Intel in the CPU space. The rivalry has meant faster CPUs for desktops and laptops as each company races to surpass the other, but there's a potential problem for AMD. It doesn't have the same track record for improved performance as Intel. In the past it's stumbled, barely keeping pace with its larger competitor. If competition is going to be sustained - if we're going to have long term competition that drives down prices and puts faster chips in our computers, than even a minor architecture change from AMD needs to have big and speedy results. The second generation of Ryzen does.
