ghostgeek: AI does grunt work on China's pig farms

Artificial intelligence technology has been developed to help piglets survive their first months - and then to decide which sows to kill. ...

The system is designed to maintain a profile of each animal, including details of their weight, age, food intake and exercise, among other details.

Vision recognition software - which relies on a number tattooed onto each swine's side - is used to keep track of each pig.

The sounds of their squeals are analysed to try to determine if any of the young ones are at risk of being suffocated under their mothers' weight.

The AI tech also listens out for coughs, which along with infrared temperature readings are used to act as an early warning system for disease outbreaks.

This should help farmers know when to provide specialised vaccinations.

And when the technology detects a sow's productivity rate has fallen below the norm it suggests she is slaughtered.

I wonder how long it will be before they start doing the same with humans?

ghostgeek: China designing AI-POWERED nuke sub that can ‘THINK for itself’ & destroy ENTIRE CONTINENT

CHINA is believed to be designing a nuclear submarine run by artificial intelligence with enough firepower to destroy an entire continent.

A submarine that could "think for itself" would free up the commanding officers and reduce the chance of mistakes, according to researchers.

Speaking to Chinese media, a researcher who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the project, said that the plan would give China's huge navy an upper hand in future battles under the sea, and would push the potential of AI technology to the next level.

Up until now, major decisions on nuclear subs — such as detecting objects underwater and answer signals picked up sonar — have been carried out by human naval personnel.

But now AI has advanced to the point where Chinese scientists believe it could replace most of the human decisions, creating the potential of future wars being entirely led by machines.

ghostgeek: SAN FRANCISCO — In July, China unveiled a plan to become the world leader in artificial intelligence and create an industry worth $150 billion to its economy by 2030.

To technologists working on A.I. in the United States, the statement, which was 28 pages long in its English translation, was a direct challenge to America’s lead in arguably the most important tech research to come along in decades. It outlined the Chinese government’s aggressive plan to treat A.I. like the country’s own version of the Apollo 11 lunar mission — an all-in effort that could stoke national pride and spark agenda-setting technology breakthroughs.

ghostgeek: In the not-so-distant future, we will be presented with the version of the news we wish to read -- not the news that some reporter, columnist or editorial board decides we need to read. And it will be entirely written by artificial intelligence (AI).

Think this is science fiction? Think again. Many of us probably don't realize that AI programs were authoring many parts of the summer Olympics coverage, and also providing readers with up-to-date reports, personalized based on the reader's location, on nearly 500 House, Senate, and gubernatorial races during the last election cycle.

And those news feeds on Facebook and Google News that the majority of people trust more than the original news sources, well those, too, employ machine-learning algorithms to match us with news and ads. And we saw how easily those were co-opted by the Russians to influence our last presidential elections.

ghostgeek: Follow the natural progression of these developments, and it leads to an ominous future in which AI entirely writes and presents the news exactly the way each of us would like to read it -- forever altering democracy as we know it.

In this future, journalists might still report on events, but it will be AI that will take these inputs, inject data from its vast historical repositories and formulate a multitude of different themes, each making different arguments and coming to different conclusions. Then, using data about readers' interests learned from their social media, online shopping and browsing history, AI will present them with the version of the news they would like to read

Re: news. The russians created a solution to the free press decades ago. The Soviet law regulated the two news agencies ( "Truth" and "News" ) as follows: No news allowed in the "Truth", and no truth allowed in the "News".

ghostgeek: Is it time to really start worrying:

Ford has been granted a patent to develop autonomous police cars which could ultimately have the capability to chase down speeding drivers and give them a ticket.

The US car company, which produces cars for police forces in the UK and the US, was granted a patent earlier this month to develop cars with the capability to carry out police work independent of human officers.

According to designs seen by Business Insider, the future cars could independently find hiding places, detect vehicles breaking the law, and chase down drivers. ...

The goal of the autonomous police car, Ford says, is not to replace human police officers, but to help them with "routine police tasks."
