- Google, Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, and Amazon Launch Initiative to Regulate AI
Five of the world's largest tech companies have come together to create an ethics board for AI development, with the purpose of guiding future AI development and set industry-wide best practices. AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is slowly taking over basic services at all major companies. At the moment, AI technologies are still out of the grasp of smaller companies, but the technology is slowly spreading to more and more businesses and industry verticals. Before things get a chance to go haywire and Skynet becomes reality, some of the world's most talented engineers, currently working for the world's biggest companies, have come together to study and formulate best practices on AI technologies, just like they did in the past with Internet and browser standards. New coalition is an open platform, similar to W3C This new coalition, named the Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society (

The proposal is an amendment to section 6.3 of RFC6761, a standard that defines special-use domains, such as "localhost," "test," "invalid," and "example." These domains, with all their variations, such as localhost.com, example.net, test.org, etc., are routed to specific destinations, due to their general purpose.

While most software will recognize that "localhost"...
