Buckminster Fuller once said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” This is exactly what Satoshi has done. Calling Bitcoin a “disruptive technology” is an understatement. Money unmoored from any central authority is the new model. As the old money that political structures depend on becomes obsolete so will the political structures themselves.
Opining about the future of AI at the recent Brilliant Minds event at Symposium Stockholm, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt rejected warnings from Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about the dangers
People want money. People made up a social order that rewards greed. This is analogous to man creating AI (a greed driven social order) and losing control over it. The money machine thinks like its creator and so it is greedy.
This is the AI current ruling the world, a digital greed machine imitatively following our analog model. Ask yourself who is behind the wheel, who is running the show. If no one knows, then I suggest we are already living in a dehumanized AI system. The question is NOT will this be a problem someday, it is now. The right question is how do we fix this problem. I believe we can scale back the greed system using the blockchain. A lot of people are thinking about how to do this.
From Yahoo News: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday described US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump as "talented" and "outstanding," welcoming his stance on Russia. "He is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented," Putin told journalists after his annual press conference in Moscow. "It's not up to us to judge his virtue, that is up to US voters, but he is the absolute leader of the presidential race," Putin added.
Once again, Putin shows he can see reality clearly and is unencumbered by ideological blindness (as are some many of our so-called "leaders"). These two men might be the best hope for peace we have... like Reagan and Gorbie PART II
RUSH: I have a headline here from the Washington Times: "White House Declares Total Victory Over GOP in Budget Battle." That headline's a misnomer. There was never a battle. None of this was opposed. The Republican Party didn't stand up to any of it.. .
"Sanctuary cities, fully funded. All refugees, fully funded. The release of criminal aliens, fully funded. Everything! The Democrat leftist wet dream has just been paid for."
This year, Google researchers nabbed the cover of scientific journal Nature with a system that can learn to play and master old Atari games without directions. Facebook built a way to let computers describe images to blind people; Microsoft showed off a new Skype system that can automatically translate from one language to another
This was also the year when AI was also given command and control of Jade Helm, a military operation.
You’ve put on weight lately, as your refrigerator keeps reminding you. With its assistance—and the collaboration of your DJ—you’ve come up with a comprehensive plan for diet and exercise, along with the attendant soundtrack.
Am I alone in seeing this as the plot of a (bad) horror movie?
Barack Obama’s repeated insistence that Bashar al-Assad must leave office – and that there are ‘moderate’ rebel groups in Syria capable of defeating him – has in recent years provoked quiet dissent, and even overt opposition, among some of the most senior officers on the . . .
A look at Pulitzer Prize winning author Seymour Hersh’s expose on the military’s resistance to funding Syrian “moderate rebels” — a figment of the administration’s imagination. Hersh names names and takes it back to the summer of 2013 when the Obama administration was pushing the sarin gas attack as a basis for overt American involvement in Syria.
The message is "RED LIPSLIKE TENTH" which is an anagram for KILL THE PRESIDENT.
The video's title and description is coded in binary and translate into Spanish. The title reads "Muerte," which means "Death," and the description reads "Te queda 1 año menos," which means "You have one year left, or less."
The online communities that develop around these hashtags can draw in adolescents and provide them a strong sense of belonging and support that is centered on these unhealthy behaviors,
"....use of #selfharmmm also grew, generating 1.7 million search results in 2014 and more than 2.4 million in 2015. In its various permutations, #SecretSociety123 grew by approximately 500,000 search results."
“Detainee is an admitted veteran jihadist with combat experience beginning in 1990 and it is assessed he would engage in hostilities against US forces, if released,” JTF-GTMO found.
I have long said we created al Qaeda, and we did. Then we torture people of faith, the release them in to the wild, or allow a prison break to occur (this has happened many times)... but why? To create more monsters, to justify endless war. This exactly what the so-called "War of Terror" has been about about form the start: to make Islam the enemy of the West and fan the flames into a raging fire. Now ask yourself, who stands to gain.
A baby girl born today is now expected to live to an average age of 82.8 years and a boy to 78.8 years, according to the Office for National Statistics. But if the results seen in animals are reproduced in humans, lifespan could increase by nearly 50 per cent.
