Artificial intelligence is already a part of day-to-day life in the modern world, but as capable as machines have become, we've still got some hurdles to overcome before we've got the robotic police forces and sentient AI of Neill Blomkamp's Chappie. But maybe, if we look at the advancements humanity has made in machine learning and robotics so far and what it's done for us, we can get a clearer picture of whether or future will involve harmony with the machines or running in terror.Read More
Personally I'm surprised he didn't rush the stage at the Academy Awards last night and scream-sing "I'M WOLVERIIIINE" like he did in his Oscars opening number in 2009.

We all know Hugh Jackman is a very accomplished performer but I don't think anyone could have predicted he'd get on stage at the Tony Awards and rap with LL Cool J and T.I.
