which scientists say would trigger a “profound increase” in coastal flooding.
The Washington coast could see as much sea level rise as 4 to 6 inches — in the next three decades as it did in the previous century. By the end of the century, the state could see nearly 3 feet in average sea level rise, according to the new projections, a jump from 2 feet in past studies.
WE the PEOPLE - the "goose" that lays the golden egg - are just as important as ALL of those involved in providing - the capital that feeds the goose -
ONE is NOT a pre-requisite of the other - they BOTH CO-EXIST -
STOP THE STRASBOURG CIRCUS
Responsible department: Foreign and Commonwealth Office
We the undersigned believe that the €200 million spent every year moving the European Parliament between Brussels and Strasbourg is a waste of taxpayers’ money. We are further concerned that the travelling circus generates 20,000 tonnes of CO₂ at a time when all countries are supposed to be cutting their levels of pollution. We want the British Government to support the ‘One Seat Campaign’ and lobby for the end of the Strasbourg Circus.
We request that the Prime Minister submits a proposal in support of the ‘One Seat Campaign’ to the European Council demanding a change in European law so that the European Parliament need only meet in one place.
profound sub-conscious effect on me at the time - because
all of my father's earth-husbandry has resulted in my long-term
involvement in the cultivation of indigenous European species
bonsai - particularly sessile oaks - as well as 10 years of dedicated
custodianship of an ancient oak woodland in Wales.
the milestones reached in the last year alone have been exceptional.
DeepMind, the British AI company owned by Google, has defeated the world champion at Go, the ancient game that requires a finely-tuned sense of intuition to master. Driverless cars now seem like an inevitability rather than a curiosity. Error rates on image recognition technology have dropped from 25pc in 2011 to less than 4pc.
AI is graduating from theory and academic papers to everyday life. If the last 10 years has been defined by the plummeting costs of microprocessors and sensors that have made smartphones a commodity product, the future is about building intelligent systems that can make them more powerful.
Ergo, the companies that will profit might not be the ones with expertise in hardware design, but those who can build software that talks back.
The missing name here is Apple. The undisputed victor of the smartphone-building wars, in profit and influence if not quite in market share, Apple’s expertise when it comes to AI is less clear.
