AI will change how people interact with all sorts of devices, [GM's VP of Strategy Mike] Abelson said, and voice interfaces "will feel a lot more like Star Trek really quickly." [Diveplane CEO Michael] Capps said he's more afraid of the Twilight Zone. "A black box scares the hell out of me," he said, and to that end he is working on "understandable AI."
While the company’s new, the technology behind the Raleigh artificial-intelligence start-up Diveplane Corp. has been under development for about seven years, CEO Mike Capps says. Diveplane is essentially a spinoff of Hazardous Software, a firm founded in 2007 that has since done “a mix of classified and unclassified work,” says Capps, the former head of Epic Games in Cary.
