This is when AI’s top researchers think artificial general intelligence will be achieved

This is when AI’s top researchers think artificial general intelligence will be achieved At the heart of the discipline of artificial intelligence is the idea that one day we’ll be able to build a machine that’s as smart as a human. Such a system is often referred to as an artificial general intelligence, or AGI, which is a name that distinguishes the concept from the broader field of study. It also makes it clear that true AI possesses intelligence that is both broad and adaptable. To date, we’ve built countless systems that are superhuman at specific tasks, but none that can match a rat when it comes to general brain power.

Manage and delete your Google search history

How to quickly manage and delete your Google search history
We already know Google collects a ton of data on us, and a lot of it comes from search. Google offers plenty of ways to limit the amount of data you have lying around, but they’re not all that easy to find. Starting today, Google is making it easier to both see and delete your search activity.
Previously, you could visit your Google Account in Settings on Android phones or on the web on iOS, tap Manage your data & personalization and then My Activity to see your search results. Then you needed to tap the three-dot menu and select Delete to get rid of something. Finding your search history on desktops was just as cumbersome.

How to delete apps from your iPhone or iPad

How to delete apps from your iPhone or iPad
You know how it is. Over the last several months, you’ve downloaded a bunch of apps, because hey most of them are free, right? And after trying them out, you decide some are just not for you. Or you find another one you like better. Or you play a game until you’re tired of it and now you’re never going to touch it again.

Migration Assistant Mac User

How to use Migration Assistant to move a user account to another Mac Apple makes it relatively painless to migrate data on one Mac to another. But you can also selectively migrate and split up multiple users on a single Mac into users across multiple Macs. You would do this if, for example, you have kids on a shared computer who now own their own, or if you’re leaving a job and want (and are allowed) to take your home directory with you.
Migration Assistant is the app you use to perform a user migration. It’s found in the Applications folder’s Utilities folder. This flexible software can work in a variety of ways to transfer all or part of the applications, user files, and other settings on one Mac to another. You can start from Time Machine backup, another Mac, or a Mac drive configured as a macOS startup volume—including a disk image backup.

Google’s help you avoid traffic and crowds

Google’s Thanksgiving report can help you avoid traffic and crowds With millions of people traveling long distances to visit family and friends, Thanksgiving traffic can be a complete nightmare. Google Maps already offers information about how congested the roads are on typical days, and now the team has produced a report specifically for Thanksgiving that shows the busiest periods before and after the holiday. In addition to traffic, the report also shows historically busy times at shopping centers and movie theaters so you can avoid the lines. The report’s

Time Capsule to Time Machine

It’s time to switch your Mac backups from Time Capsule to Time Machine volumes The Apple Time Capsule seemed like a great idea when it was unveiled about a decade ago. It was a Time Machine network backup target that also embedded a Wi-Fi gateway and ethernet sharing. Perfection, even if it was a little too expensive: It came with Apple technical support and warranty.

How to manage Windows 10 updates to prevent them from ruining your life How can I stop Windows 10 updates?

How to edit PDFs in Microsoft Word

How to edit PDFs in Microsoft Word Working with PDFs has become as common as working with Word docs, but to get the full editing capabilities in Adobe Acrobat you must shell out $449 for the desktop Pro 2017 version, or almost $180 per year for a Pro DC subscription.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 675

Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 675 with faster cores and triple-camera support Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 675, a mid-range smartphone SoC with some high-end features.

(The first major SoC with A76 is Huawei’s Kirin 980.)

Bootable macOS Mojave

How to create a bootable macOS Mojave installer drive Whenever Apple releases a new version of macOS, I like to create a bootable USB installation drive. I test different Macs, and when I need to upgrade those machines, it’s a lot more efficient to plug in the USB installer drive and run the installer, than to log into the App Store, download the 6GB OS installer, and then run it.

One of the best features of Microsoft's

One of the best features of Microsoft's October update to Windows could be in doubt When Microsoft says they have "nothing to share" about the Smart Updater feature, we have to assume that may not make it. Though features within upcoming Windows updates come and go during the beta Insider builds, one that many were looking forward to—a Smart Updater feature that would hopefully cut back on awkwardly timed Windows 10 updates—is now in doubt.

 iPhone XS and XS Max: hands-on with Apple’s giant new phone.
Apple just announced the iPhone XS and XS Max. They’re iterations on last year’s iPhone X, but the XS Max at least stands out in one very notable way: it’s so much larger.

GeForce RTX

Acer, Alienware, and HP have all announced desktops with GeForce RTX There may be hand-wringing out there over Nvidia’s new ray-tracing graphics family, but that isn’t stopping PC vendors from jumping in with both PCIe slots.
The Turing-based GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti GPUs (you can read about them here) promise breakthrough performance in real-time ray tracing in games. However, Nvidia didn't share any benchmarks at its RTX kick-off event at Gamescom in Germany.

Apple iPad (2018) review: pencil it in

Apple iPad (2018) review: pencil it in
Apple’s new base-level iPad is very good, but you knew that. Apple hasn’t produced a “bad” iPad in I don’t know how long — though it has allowed them to get a little long in the tooth from time to time. (The iPad Mini needs to either be refreshed or put down, for example.) Last year, my review of the iPad was summed up by simply telling you that it’s an iPad. The same thing applies this year.

But last year’s iPad earned effusive praise for packing a bunch of great technology into the newly low price point of $329. The same thing applies this year, but the technology isn’t quite as new. So the shine is off a bit. This iPad feels more like the result of paper-pushing rather than envelope-pushing.

This is the part where you’d expect me to tell you that since Apple is coasting a bit, there might be a better option out there, a product that competes with the iPad at the sub-$500 price point and delivers something that’s at least within the ballpark o…
