Quantum Artificial Intelligence and 'Humanoid' Robots

Why do we spend so much time looking at our smart phone? The smart phone we carry -- Android or iPhone -- is an impressive machine, with computing speeds and storage capacities thousands of times those of desktop Personal Computers (PCs) and laptops from only a few years ago.

Alibaba - From Crazy to Richest - What Is The World's Largest IPO Telling Us?

2. The world's largest Initial Public Offering (IPO) on Thursday, valued Alibaba at USD 168 billion and raised nearly USD 22 billion. Can one imagine the enormous quantum of wealth that is being generated via this IPO?

3. In a time of economic rebalancing, when few big companies are growing strongly, a Chinese business like Alibaba -- named after a fabled, poor woodsman who discovers a thieves' den full of treasures -- stands out brightly; More...
