My Techno Post

I am not much of a techno geek so I only post on the subject as an FYI or something new that has been released……

These are my two techno references…..

Some see the rise of AI as a rise of Skynet….but then there are attempts to prevent that from happening……

Thousands of artificial intelligence (AI) experts and developers have signed a pledge vowing to “neither participate in nor support the development, manufacture, trade, or use of lethal autonomous weapons,” and imploring governments worldwide to work together to “create a future with strong international norms, regulations, and laws” barring so-called killer robots.

More than 160 companies and groups from three dozen countries and 2,400 individuals from 90 countries are backing the pledge, which was developed by the Boston-based Future of Life Institute (FLI) and unveiled Wednesday during the annual International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) in Stockholm, Sweden.

Your fears are addressed…..then why do I not feel better?

Next…..we all run on GPS….our blue tooth, phones, tablets, etc and the world economy also runs on GPS and that should be changed……

Duke Buckner was enjoying his breakfast at the Renaissance Tel Aviv Hotel, looking out on the city marina, on the day that time stuttered. Buckner oversees marketing and business development for Microsemi Corp., an American communications and defense contractor, and he gets a copy of emailed error reports for its equipment. It’s rare to get more than one in a given day. But on the morning of Jan. 26, 2016, they flooded his inbox. He forgot about breakfast.

My two small attempts to post on techno issues…..

That does it for my Saturday……foul weather is about and we should get a lot of rain today…..so a lazy day watching Britbox (compensation not given)……

  1. I sometimes wonder if we need a huge techno breakdown, to give the world a much-needed wake up call. It won’t be long before all the generations that knew how to exist without computers, GPS, and the Internet are dead and gone. In the future, paper and pens will be in museums, and people won’t know how to do the most basic calculations. At least we won’t be here to worry about it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. It’s one thing that humans are great at.. and at the same time it could very likely be our downfall.. that there is no limitation to our quest to question everything around us.. and push the limits of discovery. I am drawn to “Ian Malcolm’s” quote as it illustrates man… “What’s so great about discovery? It’s a violent, penetrative act that scars what it explores. What you call discovery, I call the rape of the natural world.” Man will always endeavor to achieve simply because he can. Whether he should or not is not even in the picture. You will never be able to make rules on discovery or the science of it in spite of how noble it might me to contain man.
