China’s All-Seeing Surveillance State Is Reading Its Citizens’ Faces

The Chinese Ministry of Public Security—its national police force—and other agencies called in 2015 for the creation of an “omnipresent, completely connected, always on and fully controllable” nationwide video-surveillance network as a public-safety imperative. In a policy statement, the agencies included “facial comparison” in a list of techniques to be used to improve surveillance networks.

Giant Ziplock Baggies Full of Lambs Are Going to Change Everything

In April, researchers announced they had managed to keep several extremely premature lambs alive and growing in artificial wombs. After spending up to four weeks in a clear plastic "extra-uterine device" at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, each sheep transformed from a decidedly undercooked fetal specimen to a much more robust critter with long limbs and a fluffy wool coat, the sort of animal you wouldn't be terribly alarmed to see plop to the ground in a field on a spring afternoon.

However, there appears to be little scope for flexibility in China’s Communist Party-controlled courts, where a near perfect conviction rate results in more than 99 percent of defendants being found guilty.

America is obscenely well positioned to weather the robo-manufacturing revolution, the larger question is how well we will weather the resulting war.

Wait until their lawyers show them how it's cheaper to keep some poor schmoe in the cab, "monitoring" the train, so when it T-bones a bus full of nuns, it's cheaper to fire him than have to re-certify the trains to run autonomously. Lots of people would sign up for a low paying job of doing nothing on a train all day.

Question: If a robot is a Saudi citizen, and dressed as a woman, must you still disrespect it?

I also want to know how I'm supposed to believe that there isn't some mechanical Turk with his hand up her ass? They admit that "some of" it was planned. So it's just a really good mechanical Abe Lincoln?

She may not be good at simulating a human, but she is at least as natural and smooth as a politician.

Yeah, I thought the same thing.  More animatronics than robotics.  She's not passing the Turing Test any time soon.  Which is probably fine with the Arabs.

The Analytical Engine has no pretensions whatever to originate anything. It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform... But it is likely to exert an indirect and reciprocal influence on science itself.
