The machine's designers must not be able to explain how their original code led to this new program
That is a flatly ludicrous requirement, far in excess of what we would ever even consider applying to determine if even a human being is intelligent or not. Hell, if you were to apply that standard to human beings, ironically, many extremely intelligent people would fail that metric, because in hindsight, you can very often identify precisely how a particular thought or idea came out of a person.
Communism has been done correctly in the past, but never on a scale as large as a country.... at best, I think it has only been achieved at the scale of a modest community, and generally involving no more than a few thousand people or so.
Basically, when everyone in the community personally knows practically everyone else in it, there is a social obligation on everybody to conform to expected behavior on account of a complete lack of anonymity, and communism works. Individuals who do not fit in to such societies are unceremoniously kicked out and left to fend for themselves.
Fly by wire still has a manual backup.
You can't exactly have a manual backup if you've designed the plane so that the pilots can't actually see anything.
I'm unsure why the part of your brain that figures I shower infrequently (evidently deduced from the weekly total that I cited) can't figure out that I usually only spend 4 or 5 minutes to take a shower in the first place.
I have a waterproof watch and it wouldn't be harmed by the shower, but if I wore it in the shower all the time, then I couldn't effectively wash my skin under the watchstrap. Since I don't tend to take my watch off otherwise, dead skin would build up underneath it, and it would get rather disgusting in short order.
At the lineup going into the area where the gates are, you have to demonstrate that you can turn on any electronic devices so that they know it's not just a case containing something else. This has been in place for at least the past 10 years.
What I'm wondering, however, is if they charge people whose non-working electronics that they might confiscate any fees for proper disposal/recycling? If not, then a positive spin on this could be that someone could exploit this to utilize as a free electronics recycling facility.
In a pre-release phase, what other demand with there be?
Other dev studios.
