Chatbots are as close as this singularity-thumper is going to get to his 'post-human' delusion.
I'm sick of this shit. It's a waste of R&D. It's a waste of computing cycles.
Let's make a robot that can sew like the human hand and innovate sweatshops in Asia out of existence.
Let's solve *practical problems now* not waste our time on a solipsism.
I'm wondering about users who are *not* employed by Microsoft and obliged to use it for some reason.
Factor those out, then factor out any work-only phones running Windows because they were part of an 'enterprise' purchase and cannot change without messing up the whole 'enterprise solution'....
I doubt you'd have even
By what magic of DSP voodoo do they propose to shrink a machine which makes a Microwave Oven look like an LED flashlight by comparison down to a "wearable" size/price?
So, miniaturization...this is where I think the core concept of the (fallacious) 'Moore's Law' actually can be seen in effect.
What I mean is, though it is not any kind of formula or 'law', we can see a very idetifiable trend towards making our tech smaller. It's so clear and consistent it's about as close to 'certain' as these kinds of things can be.
The software is there...most of our limitations are hardware...usually battery weight, as boring as it sounds.
I think we will see fMRI applications for consumer products fairly soon, and in general BCI stuff will get smaller.
Have a look at the work of Manue Rodrigeuz Delgado from the 60s and 70s with BCI and just R/F tech...it will blow your mind: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
AI nutters are as bad as space nutters.
I call them "singularity thumpers"
I think about 95% of all concerns raised when it comes to driverless cars are about issues that have been solved and been tested in the field for over a decade.
**rain breaks a these driverless cars**
they can't work in rain or where the surroundings are snow covered, for several reasons...but mainly because in rain they can't see
with snow, it doesn't have to be actively snowing... even if the weather is clear and the roads dry, a white-covered surrounding makes it impossible for the car to navigate

they have no idea how well trodden certain topics are and do not know how to reason within the discipline.
this really cannot be repeated enough...
because of their credentials, regular everyday people put alot of creedence into what they say, even if it is way out of their discipline
I started the project for my own needs, and my needs are very much fulfilled," Torvalds said. "That's why, to me, it's not a failure.
This is so Linus.
it's a really hard area to enter.
.... I'll wear them down.
Who is Linus "wearing down" here?
This speaks to the inherent mistake core Linux developers make that keeps them from accomplishing their (25 year) goal.
**Users want to use the Linux desktop**...but it's not designed well enough to meet their ongoing needs like an M$ or iOS OS does.
Even if they don't know Linux exists, they know they hate Windows 10 and would use an alternative, esp a free alternative.
The user base for the Linux desktop is there...the problem is the Linux desktop isn't good enough.
Not to mention the cost of a self-propelled AI bike is nowhere near viable.
All of this pre-supposes the AI can be made to move about the city efficiently which it can't.
This really is just a dumb idea for a startup...
It's a cool school project though.
If you're worried about the millions of dollars that went into this
No, I'm worried about an entire industry that makes this mistake over and over, taking taxpayer dollars for hype bullshit.
I'm worried about the shitty, uncreative, pointless work people are going to try to pay me to do because of how warped their idea of technology has become...I'm worried that will be the only work I can get.
Lastly, I'm just worried about people...you can see the effects of the GOP defunding of public schools now...by how willing people are to jump on the latest hype/bullshit.
This reminds me of that app called 'Yo' that got funded.
All it did was send the word 'Yo' to the recipient. That was the app. No joke, the developers claimed the Israeli Military wanted to use a version of it to alert citizens of possible rocket attacks.
was being sarcastic...
i think 'teh singularity' is a ridiculous joke
You don't get it, the whole existence of the article proves it isn't working.
By your logic, a person wouldn't try to avoid an obstacle in the road until after they hit it.
Also, in general your whole way of analyzing this situation is hopelessly reductive.
TFA description doesn't mention the 'Avatar' details at all.
The swarms are cool, but the 'Avatar' program is with *full size* F-15, F-16, and F-18's that are autonomous drones that follow a lead pilot in an F-22 or F-35...from TFA:
One new project not previously reported is called Avatar, and calls for the Pentagon to pair high-tech “fifth-generation” fighter jets like the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter with unmanned versions of older jets like the F-16 Fighting Falcon or F/A-18 Hornet, which would be flown without a pilot for the first time.
The Avatar effort was previously called Skyborg by SCO and is known as “the Loyal Wingman” concept in the Air Force, Roper said. The program will require unmanned fighters to act with enough autonomy that the pilot in the manned jet doesn’t have to direct them all the time.
This is also the future for Google's AI-cars, the actual practical application will be in long-haul trucking. AI will never replace human drivers...Google's cars with no steering wheel will never be implimented. However, we will see the self-driving car tech used in the same way as this aircraft application. One human-driven lead vehicle with AI drones following the human.
If you extrapolate the growth in processor speed over time, it's clear that in about 20-30 years AI will be unhackable.
Therefore, we shouldn't even bother trying to defend against hacking now and just focus on AI.
