A car does not need to tell the difference between those things. It only needs to know something is on the road that should not be there. What that thing is, is irrelevant.

Do you think Google cars can differentiate between trees and police officers? Think again. You are over-complicating the vision problem.

Hook up to what system? You are not making any sense at all.

Like I said already, currently you only scan your boarding pass pre-security. to do your plan, you have to add a second scan, after security. This second scan will be another bottleneck just like the line entering security.

You aren't making any sense. I fly a lot, and the last thing I want to deal with is more BS in the security line to collect simple stats that can be collected in other ways.

... needed on garden variety PCs and tablets...

This is where you're wrong and people need to stop thinking this way. Nowadays, any even moderately heavy compute job is shipped off to the cloud where it is done in massively parallel systems. Hell even Google Now and Siri need the cloud for simple voice commands. Picasa uses it for face recognition. All of these things are done in near real time due to our much faster and robust worldwide Internet. There is no reason to think that any of these jobs need to be done directly on the phone or laptop.

Maybe my comment was misunderstood. I am referring to Parliment Hill itself and the grounds of parliment, which are pretty much a public commons. Anyone can just waltz onto parliment hill and have lunch.

Not quite the same ramifications as waltzing onto the south lawn.

The reason I pointed this out is because the summary above talks about the shooter "jumping the stone fence", I would hardly call it a fence.

It's important for non-Canadians to realize that Parliment Hill is not the White House or US Senate. Parliment in Canada is a public commons. There is no security at all on the ground of Parliment and the space is routinely used for large scale public protests and demonstrations, less than a couple of dozen yards of Parliment itself. It's a different ball game.

I didn't say they "dominate in the cloud", I said they were one of the largest companies in cloud. I never even said they were the largest.

The largest players in general compute cloud are Amazon, Oracle, ATT, Verizon, IBM, Microsoft, Google. Any one of these players could compete for a 100 million dollar deal.

You could also group Salesforce, Concur and some other very large cloud-specific companies in there.

Enterprise Software - IBM is still the kingpin in this

Cloud - Since they bought SoftLayer and combined them in with their existing portfolio, IBM is one of the largest companies in cloud today

Security - Taken as a standalone unit, IBM Security software & services is the second largest company in security today, second only to Symantec. It's bigger than McAfee now.

Yeap, the indexing in the journald files does increase the file size. That does speed up searches though, so it does have its advantage.

But systemd also logs a lot more than syslog ever could. This includes a lot of meta data (e.g. systems unit that started a process, cryptographic hash) for each entry as well as more entries (e.g. stdout and stderr from all daemons).

What does systemd make worse?

I can e.g. restrict services far more effectively since I switched my machines to systemd. I really appreciate that. I also find the socket activation really convenient and am really happy to be rid of that horrible crontab syntax. Networkd works like a charm and debugging became so much easier since the log output is finally complete.

So far I have yet to find anything I miss from sysv unit.

There is no distinction between any AI program and some existent game.
