Here's a Machine, Learning

motherboard.vice.com — Artificial intelligence, or machine learning, is a black box. Even those who work in the field argue over what makes a machine artificially intelligent, and what is simply the execution of an elaborate set of instructions.

All the Reasons to See 'Independence Day 2'

motherboard.vice.com — This podcast contains spoilers for Independence Day and Independence Day 2: Resurgence. We had 20 years to prepare. That's the tagline for Independence Day 2.

The existence of the app on my phone, already connected to my credit card, is a constant temptation. I take Uber to the airport. I take it if I've been drinking and feeling lazy.

An Oral History of Our Week Without Slack

motherboard.vice.com — Last week, Motherboard made the decision to temporarily shut off Slack. We announced this decision with a post on the site. We cover technology and the ways that it impacts daily life, so a story of how a tool for productivity can easily turn into a tool for distraction seemed appropriate.

The Tiny Hands Review of the iPhone SE

motherboard.vice.com — For the past three weeks, I've been using an iPhone SE. I'm an Android user. I like my widgets and my Google apps, and I always felt the iPhone was too fancy and breakable for me. This was my first experience using an iPhone as my everyday device.
