And oddly, I somehow feel safer with the preinstalled Chinese malware vs. the preinstalled NSA malware. Really, it isn't the Chinese that are going to come knocking on my door. But alas, they probably share their data anyway, with some free-trade like spy agreement.
"Other information gained via XKEYSCORE facilitates the remote exploitation of target computers. By extracting browser fingerprint and operating system versions from Internet traffic, the system allows analysts to quickly assess the exploitability of a target. Brossard, the security researcher, said that “NSA has built an impressively complete set of automated hacking tools for their analysts to use.” Given the breadth of information collected by XKEYSCORE, accessing and exploiting a target’s online activity is a matter of a few mouse clicks. Brossard explains: “The amount of work an analyst has to perform to actually break into remote computers over the Internet seems ridiculously reduced — we are talking minutes, if not seconds. Simple. As easy as typing a few words in Google.”

We don't know how a steel rod works either. You seem to want us to map out every atom of the thing over time to make sure that we know what is going on when we can bypass all the busywork with a little observation.
Stop being so stupid.
No, it isn't. Humans learn how to learn as babies.
And failing to differentiate between programming and machine learning automatically makes your opinion on AI completely invalid. That's like having someone who doesn't know the difference between a standard and an automatic giving you car advice. Extremely basic stuff that even normies should know.
The same articles show up over and over. The first states that computers are about to do consciousness. The second states that consciousness is a mere illusion for humans, whose actions are truly run from deterministic unconscious processes. In both articles, there is some hero scientist, with the article most often based on that scientist's press release.
There is never a popular press article about how computers may never do consciousness, at least by any current definition of "computer," nor an article about how there are things human consciousness can do which no deterministic process can more than imperfectly mimic. Both of these positions are viable, and embraced by experts in various fields. By all current evidence, they may prove right. But it doesn't make for a hero story to write about someone who argues for these positions. "Discovering" that consciousness either essentially does nothing or that some computer advance is just about to do consciousness (or both!) is a "great" story. Editors like it. The public is impressed by the "brilliant" "counter-intuitive" revelation.
Shut up. We sure as hell DO KNOW how neurons work. We've even built artificial ones. https://hacked.com/swedish-sci...
He dismisses the whole concept like it is some kind of mechanical turk, but it is real, and it is getting better every day.
And I NEVER said the US had anyone's best interest's at heart other than their own, but that is beside the point. They moved away from government control, and the direct result was that people stopped starving. This is very, very fucking simple. The more state control their is, the more impoverished the people, PERIOD. If state intervention "worked" as you claimed, then there would have been no need for reforms, because Spain would have been a magical paradise where the dictator commanded the tides and economic growth was shat out by flying unicorns on command. But that wasn't the case, and never has been, there, or anywhere else with a massive state control apparatus.
You dumbassed statists are simply too stupid to understand the concept of a spectrum, so you can't make any kind of reasonable assessment of any situation, which is why every time you are put in charge, you destroy everything, leaving nothing but crumbling monuments to your own ineptitude.
There is only freedom and oppression. Both left and right fall under the umbrella of oppression.
