世界围棋第一柯洁大战AlphaGo,你赌谁赢?


最近最热的话题应该是人工智能(artificial intelligence)了,因为Google最近宣布其研究的AlphaGo将在5月23日-27日在乌镇主办“中国乌镇·围棋峰会”(Go Summit)上,迎战(v. face off against)围棋世界排名第一(the world’s top-ranked player)的柯洁。



去年AlphaGo与韩国选手李世石(Lee Sedol)对战,最终以总比分4:1战胜李世石,被称为人工智能超越人脑的标志性事件(landmark event),表明人工智能真的来了,不再只是电影中的场景,而是出现在现实世界(meatspace)里。 




然而这种变化让不少人感到警惕(feel alert)。本世纪最杰出的科学家和天文学家史蒂芬·霍金(Stephen Hawking)警告说,完全人工智能的发展将终结人类(spell the end of the human race)。著名科技企业家伊隆·马斯克(Elon Musk)也出声反对(v. speak out against)人工智能,宣称(v. declare)它是人类生存(n. survival)的最严重威胁(the most serious threat)。




当然,也有人没有那么悲观(adj. pessimistic)。人工智能交谈应用Cleverbot创造者(Rollo Carpenter)(Rollo Carpenter)相信,在相当长的一段时间内(prep.  for a decently long time),人类还是把科技掌握在手中(remain in charge of)。科技解决(v. solve)世界上诸多问题的潜力(n. potential)也会逐渐实现(v. realize)。

昨日作业参考范文


Discuss one advantage and disadvantage of shared bikes.


Shared bikes have made a splash since last year by flooding the streets ofChina. They revive the "Kingdom  of Bicycles" overnight, where cycling used to be a popular mode of transportation. The bike-sharing service creates an environment-friendly mode of transportation, and epitomizes the combination of technology, creativity and market forces. However, it also has its dark side. Shared bikes in large numbers have generated a parking headache due to lack of parking space and poor maintenance and management services. (80 words)
