Are we doomed through AI or will it generate new opportunities (an optimists viewpoint)
It's pretty easy to paint a dystopian picture of the fate of mankind at the emergence of AI. It's harder to paint a picture of what we think the world will evolve to be in the coming years.

Something Weird Is Happening on Saturn's Snow-Covered Moon, Scientists Say
Saturn's tiny ice-covered moon Enceladus isn't only suspected to hold a liquid ocean beneath its icy crust — it's also covered in an astonishing amount of fuzzy, snow-like material, puzzling scientists.
