If AI can participate in its own improvement and be better at it than humans, then that AI should already be more clever than humans. How do we get AI to that point?
The only way to win is not to play
I'd be glad to see stats about how many devices in use CAN be upgraded but aren't. Out of 5 Android devices I have, only Nexus II can get the newest OS version.
If upgrading Android would take something like apt-get full-upgrade from the device or at worst booting some ISO on my PC with the device connected, I'd do it. But devices are locked, I can't upgrade my phone above 4.1 and drivers that would allow me to install bootleg distros are unavailable in source code form. So yeah, I'm sticking with 4.1 as long as my phone works and its battery still keeps me online for 5-6 days.
Preservation of local languages and introduction of a global one are not exclusive goals. All it takes is the world to agree to teach everyone a second language so that in one or two generations every person in the world had TWO native languages - a local and the global one. But if we could agree on things like that we wouldn't be afraid of wars nor global warming.
I won't post it? Hold my beer!
Home use is negligible. What about industry?
A douche move? Why do OPERATORS charge less for bigger band use?
If your single $100 drive fails, you lose all your data. Cloud provider probably spreads your data on more than one drive. Of course the SPOF is the provider then.
It seems the post about attractiveness was censored out by
/. for me, so I thought you were commenting the picture itself.
As to "traditional", I've probably used a wrong word.
Have you SEEN the photo? It's not about how attractive they are. But how traditionally they are dressed. Which for many people contrasts with space exploration.
I predict a huge market that is not helping people walk.
After they "went" to Ukraine, I prefer them going to the Moon than going to Poland.
My home data center is a single frankenPC that I made from an old chassis, a mainboard that has integrated Intel Atom CPU, PCI RAID card and 4 HDDs. It's running Ubuntu Server. It works well enough, Linux manages the RAID and emails me when drives are failing, it has a transmission-deamon which is a torrent client with web interface, it also runs Sickbeard that downloads tv episodes automatically for me. The box also does and stores backups of my other computers AND web servers. I have gigabit ethernet at my home and the box can saturate it (although I use WD Red drives which are not that fast). Also, the whole setup grabs just 35W of power (it takes about 24W when I spin HDDs down, but I don't think they like it, so I don't do it).
I don't think he's meant to threaten Ukraine. He's meant to threaten NATO and UE. "If you intervene, I'll use nukes".
