"I'm talking about him in the past tense…" Duguet said. He sighed. His voice trailed off.
Un camion-citerne rempli de diesel qui s'enflamme au coeur d'une grande ville, en pleine heure de pointe : ce genre d'événement donne froid dans le dos. L'accident survenu cette semaine sur l'autoroute 40 est certes tragique, mais il aurait pu être encore plus grave. Il doit maintenant servir de signal d'alarme et nous forcer à évaluer chaque maillon de la chaîne du transport routier de matières dangereuses au Québec.

Fifteen years after the World Social Forum (WSF) began with a huge gathering in Porto Alegre, Brazil, organisers are hoping to breathe new life into the anti-globalisation movement. ..."When I talk with Montrealers, no one is aware of this forum and so few people know about the WSF in general, whereas everyone knows Davos," said Henry Mintzberg, a professor at McGill University in Montreal, contrasting the WSF with its nemesis, the World Economic Form held each year in the posh Swiss Alps resort.

That's a problem if the AI is making life or death decisions, as it would in missile systems or unmanned drones.
