Two things are happening simultaneously: The RSA Security Conference is in full swing and so is COVID-19. It's a strange juxtaposition. The conference is going on undeterred just a few blocks from where the mayor declared a state of emergency due to the ongoing spread of the virus. There's also topical alignment since the RSA Conference, itself a pillar in an industry intimately concerned with risk management, makes starkly clear the risk management decisions made by the attendees at the event, as well as notable non-attendees.

Thank you for your sobering perspective.

In view of the deeply serious news, that today it was revealed, (Weds Feb 26th), a KOREAN AIR passenger jetliner at LAX, carrying the coronavirus tested POSITIVELY and identified the "likely" infected female personnel individual, as having landed and/or cleaned cabins of the airliners coming and going out of LAX and disbursed the plane's passengers into the LA terminal and beyond. The fact is that they have at least one positive infected person's viral contents inside a passenger plane continuing to carry hundreds of passengers since Feb 15th !

News stories do not reveal how many passengers she attended to or how many surfaces she touched/cleaned or coughed upon. The CDC currently states up to between 10 days and a 2 week incubation/infection period.

They are revolutionary tools for solving problems facing humanity.
They won't change the world, but they have many practical, beneficial applications.
There's a danger that humans will lose control of AI and there will be grave consequences.
Some of their so-called big accomplishments, such as beating humans at games, are trivial and overhyped.
