Cotton Candy was invented by a dentist. Dentist William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton invented machine-spun cotton candy in 1897. It was first introduced at the 1904 World's Fair as "Fairy Floss." Then, another dentist, Josef Lascaux, reinvented the machine in 1921. He came up with the name "cotton candy," which replaced "fairy floss." Electric chairs and cotton candy—what will dentists think of next?

U.S. Military Worried About Losing the AI War

A Defense Department science board urges ‘immediate action’ to catch up on AI warfare.

It took a while for the US military to bolster its defenses against cyberattacks, and it looks like there’s a similar deficit when it comes to artificial intelligence. A new Defense Department report says that the country needs to take “immediate action” to speed up its development of AI war technology. Academic and private research on AI and autonomous tech is well ahead of American forces, the study says. There’s a real chance that we could see a repeat of what happened in cyberwarfare, where the US was focused so heavily on launching attacks that it left itself off-guard.

Naturally, the board already has some advice. It recommends that the Pentagon gather more intelligence on other nations’ AI capabilities, and develop “counter-autonomy” solutions. The military could deceive or overwhelm autonomous war machines, for example. Also, the writers suggest that the US pour many more resources into developing and testing learning AI, such as weapons that adapt to battlefield conditions.

There’s no guarantee that officials will heed the advice, or even that it’s absolutely necessary. However, there are good reasons why the US might not want to sit on its hands. The board cautions that rivals (such as China and Russia) have “less restrictive” policies on lethal autonomous hardware, such as killer robots. That doesn’t mean that the US should follow their lead, but it may need technology that can thwart deadly AI systems before it’s too late.
