>Bezos announces divorce
亚马逊CEO贝佐斯离婚
Amazon.com Inc founder and Chief Executive Jeff Bezos, the world's richest person, and his wife MacKenzie are divorcing after 25 years of marriage, the couple said on Twitter on Wednesday. Jeff, 54, has a fortune that has soared as high as $160 billion thanks to his stake in Amazon, which again became Wall Street's most valuable company this week, surpassing Microsoft Corp. He has credited MacKenzie, 48, for her support when he uprooted the young couple to Seattle from New York to launch Amazon, an online bookseller that grew into the world's largest internet retailer. The couple decided to divorce after a long period of "loving exploration" and trial separation, according to the joint statement. Because the pair were married before Amazon was founded, it's likely that MacKenzie holds a large claim to that fortune, though details hinge on where the couple files for divorce and if they had a prenuptial agreement.
世界首富、亚马逊公司创始人兼首席执行官杰夫•贝佐斯和妻子麦肯齐9日在推特上宣布,两人正在办理离婚,即将结束25年的婚姻。本周亚马逊超越微软,再次成为华尔街最具价值的公司。现年54岁的杰夫因持有亚马逊股票,财富一度飙升至1600亿美元。杰夫感谢现年48岁的麦肯齐当年支持两人从纽约移居西雅图创办亚马逊。如今,亚马逊已从一家网络书店成长为全球最大的互联网零售商。根据联合声明,这对夫妇经过长时间的"爱情探索"和试行分居后决定离婚。由于两人在结婚后才成立亚马逊,麦肯齐很可能要求获得大量财产,不过具体情况取决于两人申请离婚的地点以及是否签订过婚前协议。

>Half of jobs at risk
AI将夺走全球半数工作?
Half of current jobs will be taken over by AI within 15 years, China's leading AI expert has warned. Kai-Fu Lee, the author of the bestselling book "AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order", told Dailymail.com the world of employment was facing a crisis "akin to that faced by farmers during the industrial revolution". Lee, who is a VC in China and once headed up Google in the region, has over 30 years of experience in AI. He believes it is imperative to "warn people there is displacement coming, and to tell them how they can start retraining". Luckily, he said all is not lost for humanity. "AI is powerful and adaptable, but it can't do everything that humans do." Lee believes AI cannot create, conceptualize, or do complex strategic planning, or undertake complex work that requires precise hand-eye coordination. He also says it is poor at dealing with unknown and unstructured spaces. Crucially, he says AI cannot interact with humans "exactly like humans", with empathy, human-to-human connection, and compassion. Psychiatrists, social workers and marriage counselors are unlikely to lose their jobs, along with nurses, AI researchers and scientists, he believes.
中国顶级人工智能专家警告说,15年内人工智能将夺走人类现在一半的工作。畅销书《人工智能超级力量:中国、硅谷和新世界秩序》的作者李开复告诉每日邮报网站说,全世界的职业都面临着一场危机,严重程度"堪比工业革命时期农民所遭受的威胁"。李开复是中国的一位风险投资人,曾经是谷歌在中国的主管,他在人工智能方面有超过30年的经验。他认为非常有必要"警告人们将会有替代自己的机器人出现,并告诉人们如何开始重新接受培训。"李开复指出,幸运的是,人类并不会无事可做。"人工智能既强大又善于应变,但不能胜任人类的一切工作。"李开复认为,人工智能不能创造、概念化,也不能做复杂的战略规划,或承担需要精细的手眼协调的复杂工作。他还表示,人工智能不善于应对未知和缺乏结构的空间。他说,最关键的是,人工智能无法"完全像人类那样"与人互动,缺乏同理心、同情心,无法进行人与人之间的心灵沟通。李开复认为,精神病医生、社会工作者、婚姻顾问,以及护士、人工智能研究人员和科学家都不容易失业。

>Markle given royal job
梅根接手首份王室工作
The queen has handed Meghan Markle her first official royal role, and it couldn't be more perfect for the Duchess of Sussex. Royal sources claim Meghan has been asked to take over as patron of the National Theatre, and believe it's a "natural fit" thanks to her acting experience. Insiders say Meghan has already hit the ground running and had a private meeting with the organization's director Rufus Norris last month to discuss her new role. Like the rest of the royal family, the duchess will have a number of patronages which are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The duchess studied theater at university before landing a series of acting roles. Her big break came with the legal drama "Suits", which she starred in for seven years before she married Prince Harry.
