Well, if they're Intel turbo-boost processors, running more threads (and activating more cores) drops the frequency of all the cores. Fewer cores in use = higher core frequency.
Aren't you forced to consent to breathalyzers at any stop while driving your car when you receive your license?
You are never "forced to consent" to anything. If you're forced, ipso facto it is not consent.
You can have your license yanked for declining a breath test. But that's strictly an administrative action, not criminal.
If you're not drunk, the cops have no probable cause to ask you to blow, so your lawyer can argue that, and you could blow a false positive. So if you're not drunk, blowing is not in your interest. If you are drunk, naughty naughty, but that aside you wouldn't want to give them evidence to use against you.
From what I have read and seen, you are best off declining to take either a "field sobriety" test or a breathalyzer test. Never consent.
That blue wall can't be sued...
Oh, it very definitely can. It takes a while but activist friends of mine sued successfully. Some sorts of suits have more chance of success than others, but suits over bad cops do win or get settled fairly often.
Is your assumption just because they could do it, that they are? Despite the fact that there's no benefit to getting DNA samples from random drivers but there is a huge time and monetary cost to do so?
If they are taking a cheek swab, they are already getting your DNA. That might not be what they are after at the moment, but they have your DNA, along with your license plate number, so they have a pretty good idea who you are.(And if they're checking your driver's licence, they know who you are.
The cost of storing that DNA, in case you should later become a person of interest or until the cost of DNA analysis becomes trivial, is minimal. Rather like the cost of storing data about your electronic communications. You're not interesting to them now, but you might be someday, and the surveillance state isn't about to let an opportunity go to waste.
...90% of cops are really great people that really are just trying to serve the public. But 10% are bad and the others cover for them.
Those who cover for the really bad 10% are, ipso facto, not "realy great". They are accomplices and accessories to the crimes they cover up.
Baby, check it out, I've got something to say
Man it's so loud in here
When they stop the drum machine and I can think again, I'll remember what it was.
I've long said that the only real difference between a libertarian and a crony capitalist is a bank account large enough to buy politicians. With the combination of Staffergate and Pope Francis's Apostolic Exhortation, I'm beginning to think that we live under rule of corruption, not rule of law. It's hard to tell the difference between the two- since the very people writing the law are the ones taking the bribes.
This is why the magical overflowing glass of Argentinian's version of the trickle down theory never overflowed and kept growing larger. This is why a rising tide floats some boats and sinks others. This is what is wrong with von Mises' theories about government in general- a free market means that government is for sale to the highest bidder.
Eliza. Turing Test is easy, because the majority of the general public is stupid and narcissistic. Not so much artificial intelligence, as exploiting the security holes in the human brain.
In what way is your framework different from the old programming language PILOT?
Yeah, supposedly he didn't have the batteries for servos, that's why he needed Twiki. Just a head.
Yeah, I'm not sure which society is the utopia and which is the dystopia.
But I know a lot of people who would love to live in Amish Australia already.
I always thought Twiki was a completely useless design.and Dr Theopolis should have been a dialup server someplace.
What level of AI?
Apple IIe disk drives (in 1983!) used to come with a program that would play 20 questions with you and guess the animal you were thinking of. It could even learn to a certain extent.
All that has happened since then in AI, is that the knowledge base has gotten larger.
Too bad parent posted AC, because that short story is the absolute best futurist discussion of the topic.
If your income is low enough- go platinum and make the feds pay for it.
There is one other option- thjis, if you have moral qualms is supposedly Obamacare friendly while avoiding the moral problems of traditional health insurance companies.
