That's absurd, the UK Prime Minister can't make rules for other countries, violating their sovereignty. I'm embarrassed for by British friends that their PM would think that he could do this. It's offensive.

Just who does he think he is, the American President?


Submission + - A programming language for self-organizing swarms of drones

jumpjoe writes: Drones are becoming a staple of everyday news. Drone swarms are the natural extension of the drone concept for applications such as search and rescue, mapping, and agricultural and industrial monitoring. A new programming language, compiler, and virtual machine, were recently introduced to specify the behaviour of an entire swarm with a single program. This programming language, called Buzz, allows for self-organizing behaviour to accomplish complex tasks with simple program. Details on the language and examples are available here. Full disclosure: I am one of the authors of the paper.

1.79 x 10^12 furlongs per fortnight -- it's not just a good idea, it's the law!
