Long known to be a bit of a cynic in regards to artificial intelligence, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk decided to do what he does best and put his wealth to good use.Along with Y Combinator president Sam Altman, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, and Musk’s PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, Musk hopes that this donation will to allow OpenAI to function freely without worrying about generating a financial return.In the company’s eyes, this fact alone is paramount to it prioritizing a “good outcome” over its own “self-interest.”“As a non-profit, our aim is to build value for everyone rather than shareholders,” OpenAI representatives said in a press release.“Researchers will be strongly encouraged to publish their work, whether as papers, blog posts, or code, and our patents (if any) will be shared with the world.We’ll freely collaborate with others across many institutions and expect to work with companies to research and deploy new technologies.”Despite the $1 billion pledge and celebrity affiliation, it isn’t completely obvious exactly how OpenAI intends to build value or collaborate outside of just plain research.“It’s hard to fathom how much human-level AI could benefit society, and it’s equally hard to imagine how much it could damage society if built or used incorrectly.”In addition to the founders, OpenAI plans on initially functioning with nine world-class research engineers and scientists, headlined by research director and Google Brain Team alum Ilya Sutskever.

For more stories from WIRED's mission-driven businesses package, click here.US-based outdoor-clothing company Patagonia uses materials that either benefit, or cause minimal damage to, the environment.Having been steadily successful since it was founded in 1973, the company has doubled in size, tripled its profits and become a certified B Corp over the past ten years.The company's annual revenues, in excess of $600 million in 2013, have continued to rise, despite - or rather, partly due to - a programme called Worn Wear.Patagonia, still privately owned by its founder, 77-year-old Yvon Chouinard, continues to donate at least one per cent of its annual net revenue to environmental causes, to date totalling $36 million."There is nothing we can change about making clothing that would have more positive environmental impact than making less," she says.
Alan RockefellerPsilocybin, the psychedelic compound in magic mushrooms, may be an effective way to treat depression in patients that have seen no benefit from other, standard forms of treatment, early results suggest.In a pilot study involving just 12 people with treatment-resistant depression, two doses of the mushroom compound cleared symptoms in eight participants—67 percent—after one week.We are simply saying that this is doable, Robin Carhart-Harris, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and first author of the study, told Nature.Carhart-Harris and colleagues got the idea to try psilocybin after earlier brain imaging studies found that the compound activated brain regions associated with antidepressant effects.Plus, large population studies have found that people who used psychedelics in their lifetime have lower rates of psychological distress and suicidal episodes compared to those that didn t.Moreover, psilocybin is readily converted to psilocin in the body, which can activates serotonin receptors.While the efficacy was pretty remarkable, according to Carhart-Harris, far more work will need to be done to prove that psilocybin can treat depression reliably.

Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.
Now, six years later, the company has unveiled the fruits of that labor: a brand-new website for their global online presence at global.canon.The move will likely confuse some people, given that the .com TLD remains the most popular and commonly used TLD, and the fact that consumers will likely still default to canon.com when trying to navigate to the corporation s online presence.But the move sets Canon apart, being one of only a few corporations with one of these new branded TLDs others include Barclays bank and automaker BMW , as well as allowing them an SEO and security benefit to sites they host on it.Canon s old .com address will redirect to the global.canon address, which will either limit the number of consumers thrown off by the new URL, or cause greater confusion.It will be interesting to see if more corporations follow suit and move their websites over to branded TLDs.It could also make the process of finding the company website you are looking for that much more complicated, so the jury is still out on whether this is a good direction.
'It cannot be certain' spending has increased at ALL – NAOThe Cabinet Office has lost its enthusiasm for prising open Whitehall's wallet and handing more cash to SMEs, according to a report by the Committee of Public Accounts today.But today the committee said: "It is not clear that SMEs are better able to compete with larger providers or whether they are actually getting any more government business than before."We continue to see larger providers dominating; for example, the Government s top five IT providers received over half of government s total spending on contracted out IT," said the report.The fact the government has changed its approach to measuring such spending in four of the last five years makes it impossible to properly assess performance.It s a simple point, but launching initiatives is not the same as delivering results."The government has failed to identify the areas of spending where SMEs could bring the most benefit and it remains difficult for SMEs to ascertain what bidding opportunities are available, said the report.

Barclaycard research claims that managing returns is damaging profits for many British online businessesBritish online retailers are bearing the brunt of improved customer service, according to new research that found free return policies may be causing businesses to lose profits.Overall, nearly six in ten 57 percent of retailers said that dealing with the day-to-day cost of dealing with returns is negatively impacting their business, with one in five 20 percent even admitting to increasing prices to try and counteract the cost of returns.And more than a fifth 22 per cent of current high-street retailers are choosing not to sell online, because they are concerned about being able to afford the costs of managing the delivery and returns process.Time to changeonline shoppingThese solutions are grating against consumer habits, Barclaycard warns, as 30 percent of shoppers admitted to deliberately over-purchasing and subsequently returning unwanted items, safe in the knowledge they will be able to benefit from a range of quick and easy returns such as hourly courier services and local drop-off points.A similar proportion would like retailers to introduce technology to help them better visualise an item when shopping online, such as the ability to virtually try on clothing after uploading an image of themselves – a system currently being trialled by several big-name retailers.Today s time-pressed shopper expects the process to be fast, easy and free – and that applies to both buying goods as well as returning them, said Sharon Manikon, director of customer solutions at Barclaycard global payment acceptance.
