US Supreme Court rejects computer scientist's lawsuit over AI-generated inventions (yahoo.com)

Thaler told the Supreme Court that AI is being used to innovate in fields ranging from medicine to energy, and that rejecting AI-generated patents "curtails our patent system's ability - and thwarts Congress's intent - to optimally stimulate innovation and technological progress."

Congress can change this at any time. I bet we'll have Congressional hearings on AI inventorship over the next few years, which will be fascinating. For me, at least.

What's that noise in the sky at night? (wtol.com)

People who live near the Bad Axe, Mich., area may hear and see fighter jets between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.. The jets may be in close proximity to a Civil Air Patrol aircraft, which will be taking on the role of a potential threat in the exercise.

Jake thought about joining the Civil Air Patrol. They gave a great presentation at BGSU a few months back - "we do all sorts of cool things, like help with logistics after hurricanes, floods, etc....you get flight hours on the government’s dime.”

They didn’t mention "taking on the role of a potential threat" in F-16 training exercises.
