It's a self-correcting problem. America doesn't need to help gifted students, and should continue its present course, Meanwhile, countries like Japan, Korea, and Germany will avoid mainstreaming and will fast-track the smarter kids. In a generation or two, we'll see who has the better economy.
I think you have it wrong. You see, these creationists...they have a book which describes exactly how the world was created. It is called the Bible and it states pretty clearly how it happened. The problem here is that this so called "evidence" contradicts the very strong evidence they have...namely, their book.
Since it contradicts their book by claiming to take billions of years, it must (by very definition) be wrong. So what you really have is the Big bang is a bad interpretation of the natural world.
Now excuse my while I go wash my hands for typing that.
With the cost of new batteries, I really wonder if it's worth it to bother with any of this stuff any more. You can get a new battery from Autozone now for $50-75 with a 3-year guarantee (if it fails in that time, they give you a replacement with a prorated discount). This worked out pretty well for me when I lived in Arizona, since batteries there never last more than 18 months.
I would love to give all politicians a break...somewhere around C1 or C2.
Don't worry, the combination on the nukes is all zeros. Everyone knows that.
Perhaps that is what he meant about most transparent administration? You know, kind of like trying to beat the world land speed record.... oh wait thats fast...for single wheeled vehic....oh how about single wheeled electric, multi-passenger vehicles? What No record?....oh we have that so beat!
Set the bar low enough, and you barely need to step over it.
Considering that it was how we moved big stuff in to space and current relations with Russia going south (with Russia being our only ticket to the ISS), we better get to those "potential future programs" pretty damn fast.
Here is - quite literally - a fu*king rocket scientist devoting his time and energy NOT towards building a better world or improving the advancement of our society. Instead, he's spearheading a massive effort to construct a self-congratulatory museum-piece.
If you want a textbook illustration for the meaning of "decadence" in the context of a civilization, you can read it in the above.
Earth to hippie: It's that way in pretty much all aspects of life on this planet. Money makes a difference in opportunities in life, and in what you can do.
Human to AC: the whole point of having sapience is seeing things not just like they are, but also like how they could be, and if that's a prettier picture, steering them towards it. Animals take things as they are, humans don't have to.
I thought about this for a second a while back but, it slams up against one really major...no...fundamental problem.
The exchange is a point where currencies/commodities/etc meet. No amount of messing with the details behind how you move money around in your accounts can actually cause food to move to your table or hand you dollar bills. At some point the rubber has to meet the road or else you are just spinning wheels.
The bitcoin protocol, or any such protocol can only deal with itself. In order to exchange cryptocurrency for dollars, you need to actually exchange them.
Shitheads like you is why far too many women put up with harassment for far too long.
Enjoy it while it lasts, because the tide is turning.
America's tech leaders want to reduce wages.
Why is transhumanism a fantasy?
1) Because you will never be able to afford it.
2) The elite who are driving transhumanism will never let you afford it.
Then you're not actually reading the timeline. AI is not a Scotsman. I am looking at the well known sub-field of computer science known as Artificial Intelligence. I am not the first to observe that anything from that field, once working well is no longer commonly considered to be AI.
1965 Edward Feigenbaum initiated Dendral, a ten-year effort to develop software to deduce the molecular structure of organic compounds using scientific instrument data. It was the first expert system.
Go ahead, look those guys up. Expert systems were very much considered AI when they were invented in 1965. By the '80s they actually worked and were no longer considered AI. Playing checkers USED to be thought of as AI. Not any more, probably because it works well and can be found in a child's toy.
We will never know if a computer has achieved what you call 'true AI' we can only observe it's behavior and guess. Certainly I have met people that lead me to wonder in the other direction. Philosophers have questioned our ability to know if sentience exists at all for that matter.
If you give it some thought, you'll realize that you don't actually have a good testable definition of what you consider 'real AI' at all. If I'm wrong, write that paper now, your Nobel awaits!
I suspect though, that you simply lack perspective. There was a time when grown adults commonly believed computers were thinking simply because someone (not them, of course, it took a high level wizard) could type something to the computer and it would type back an appropriate response. The field of AI had somewhat higher standards.
How would one claim plausible deniability?
"Your honor, I was simply transmitting random ASCII to a friend! He replied with random PETSCII!"
Well, that sort of argument by itself will just get you into deep trouble. (Taking the piss with a court is a good way to get into trouble, and your argument is hardly plausible in the first place.) Steganography might work, but then you've got the problem of distributing the baselines so that the other party can decrypt; sending lots of visually-identical-but-not-bit-identical copies of the same image would usually be a dead giveaway that you're using steganography.
Or that you use Google+; I keep seeing the same old shit resent there.
It's far better to ask why the AG Hates Australian Business, given that he's trying to make all online commerce impossible. Or that he hates medical privacy because he's making it impossible to securely transfer patient records between doctors and hospitals. Find things that show why encryption is an important basic part of doing things online that is used for nefariousness only because it is used for masses of other things too. ("Cars are used to commit smash-and-grab raids! Ban them at once!")
