I'm certain these are questions that none of the incredibly smart people working on autonomous cars have thought of.
I'm pretty sure that an AI car is never going to "freak out." The worst it might do is slow the heck down, which you, the person following, should be ready for anyway.
You are trolling, you trolly troll.
You aren't reading the summary correctly. It's not 4 out of 48. Only two of the four crashes happened when the car was under computer control.
No, you need to be out of jail in public so you can continue to make statements that show very clearly what a fuckwit you are.
This is the exact point I used to make to my high school students and now to the teachers I work with. The real problem is not whether or not Wikipedia is an "accurate" source. We should never trust one source as being the perfect model of accuracy. Instead we should look at multiple sources. But overall, as I told my high schoolers, it's a quick reference and should be treated as such. You shouldn't cite Wikipedia in a research paper. Not because it's unreliable, but because it's an encyclopedia.
Good points. Another thing to remember is that a lot of this push towards STEM is in the middle and high schools. It's sorely needed there, and emphasizing it won't hurt humanities at all. For example. Not many years ago, the high school where I taught English was not very STEM friendly or humanities friendly. We were down to one real elective in English, a very popular mythology course. The others failed to "make" becasue not enough students signed up for them. Of course that was because most students were put in a "mandatory elective" writing class so they could pass a state writing test. They didn't have the room in their schedule for a real humanities elective. In the meantime, our "Career and Technical Education" department was going strong because students had to take a certain number of those classes. One of their more popular classes was "Sports Marketing." They had three or four sections of that. Now, these courses are changing a bit. They have fewer courses focusing on Jerry Maguire and more on robotics and coding.This is a good thing.
I'm having the same situation. AT&T swears up and down that they can give me U-verse service . . . until the tech gets there and finds out that the nearest box is miles away. They then tell me that they can probably get me DSL. But when I talk to the call center folks, they say they can't process a DSL order while the system says U-Verse is available. Don't worry, they say, as soon as the maps are updated, we can order your DSL. Almost a year later, the maps aren't updated. It's almost like they vigorously don't want my business.
Agreed. I work on the instructional tech side of the house, but our engineers are good and would not get caught like this. We aren't invulnurable, but we have contingencies.
That was my thinking. We routinely back up the important stuff in my district. This would have been a headache, but the data would have been reasonably safe.
Good point. I'm befuddled by the recent trend of pot enthusiasts attacking alcohol and overstating it's dangers the way people overstate the dangers of pot. It's a weird way to try and prove your point.
See the thing is, as an SCA guy, if I carry the sword, I'm going to have to bring the shield to be really effective. And that's going to be cumbersome in line at the Starbucks. Actually, the polearm would be fairly easy to carry around.
Yep. Except at this point, I'd be happy be ABLE to tell Comcast or anyone else to take a hike. I live in a relatively new subdivision (2008) in a ruralish suburban community about 45 minutes from Charlotte, NC. I can't get broadband from either AT&T or Charter Cable. The cable company refuses to consider running cable into the subdivision and AT&T is so incompetent that they can't get their own system to admit that the nearest U-verse node is too far away to give me Internet. I've called and begged for service. I've offered to pay to run the cable. They won't even consider it. I asked AT&T to let me step down to DSL. They say they can't "process the order" while the system thinks I can get U-Verse. It's clear they don't care about competing for my business. It looks like they don't even want my business.
My thought exactly. I kept wanting to hit the spacebar to deploy the chutes.
I'm all for free speech, but forcing someone to watch that may be taking it a bit too far.
