... that Artificial Intelligence (AI) could make scams harder to spot because 'bad actors' would use the technology to trick people about their identities. Wozniak said AI content must be clearly labelled and regulation was needed for the sector, as he warned of the dangers of the technology

'AI is so intelligent it's open to the bad players, the ones that want to trick you about who they are,' Wozniak, who founded Apple with Steve Jobs, told the BBC.

”There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all who profit by the old order, and only luke-warm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order. This quality of lukewarmness arises partly from a fear of adversaries, who have the law on their side, and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it.”

Machiavelli - The Prince - 1513

ONLY when the last tree has died
and the last river been poisoned
and the last fish been caught will
WE REALISE that ...
communication, developing and using words that
are consistent with scientific reality, is one facet of
the role of language with respect to synergetics.
Another deals with the difficulty of describing
visual and structural patterns.

Artificial intelligence is arguably the most rapidly advancing technology humans have ever developed. A year ago you wouldn’t often hear AI come up in a regular conversation, but today it seems there’s constant talk about how generative AI tools like ChatGPT and DALL-E will affect the future of work, the spread of information, and more. A major question that has thus far been almost entirely unexamined is how this AI-dominated future will affect people’s minds.

There’s been some research into how using AI in their jobs will affect people mentally, but there isn’t yet an understanding of how simply living amongst so much AI-generated content and systems will affect people’s sense of the world. How is AI going to change individuals and society in the not-too-distant future?

AI will obviously make it easier to produce disinformation—from fake images to deepfakes to fake news. That will affect people’s sense of trust as they’re scrolling on social media. AI can also allow someone to imitate your loved ones, which further erodes people’s general ability to trust what was once unquestionable. That may also affect how they think about identity.

I don’t think I’m alone when I confess that my streaming strategy is a mess. In fact, calling it a strategy is overly kind. I pay for a number of services, all of which cost more every year, and I still keep hearing of shows I want to see on streamers I don’t have. Maybe there are people who carefully analyze what’s available and keep unsubscribing and resubscribing, then methodically bingeing what they miss and deactivating again. Please do not sit those annoyingly competent people beside me at a dinner party. I’m just barely getting by.

Worse, my precarious balance was wholly overturned a few weeks ago when the Netflix movie I was watching suddenly flickered, and, with brutal abruptness, quit entirely, dumping me into the anodyne pink abyss of the home screen of my Roku-powered smart TV. I did what anyone would do in that situation, opening the Netflix app again to try and resume the movie. I didn’t get to see another full minute before the app crashed again. Well, when in doubt, reboot. I pulled the plug on the TV, waited a minute, and started over. This time I was able to complete the movie. But two days later the same thing happened again. And later that week, I had the same problem with the Amazon Prime app. For the past few weeks, to watch a movie on either of those services has meant pulling out the power cord and rebooting the television before pressing the Play button.

.... and that "JUNO’s approach sets it apart from the other detectors being built. Japan’s planned Hyper-Kamiokande detector will use purified water as its neutrino-detecting medium, whereas the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in the United States will rely on liquid argon to measure the elusive particles, says Mary Bishai, a physicist at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York and co-spokesperson for the US observatory. Both of these future detectors will measure neutrinos beaming in from nearby particle accelerators rather than nuclear reactors.

Like telescopes that view the cosmos at different wavelengths, having several neutrino detectors that use distinct techniques to observe neutrinos from various sources, such as the Sun and nuclear power stations, will allow researchers to develop a better understanding of neutrino characteristics and the role of these particles in the Universe, says Bishai. “It gives us a unique way of checking that our picture is consistent,” she says."

ALL of which re[MINDS] me the very fact that YOUR genes are NOT your destiny - YOU are in charge of your destiny because genes are units of heredity that code for every protein that occur in our body and are transferred from one generation to another.

Are genes deterministic? Is it possible to “turn on” genes that are
good for you and "turn off " the genes that not ?
In the context of the genetic heredity of my grandparents and the
epigenetic influence engendered by the nurturing of both sets of
grandparents, as well as my mum and dad - and my subsequent
detailed understanding of all of their experiences of two world wars,
juxtaposed to those of Carl Jung, William Shirer and Ed Murrow -
which it turn were cemented into a theory of everything for me, by
Clare Grave's own experience of WWII - having been born to this
pale blue dot on the 23rd of May 1946, the 70th Anniversary
of the VE Celebrations has for me, sparked a renewed process
of reflection.

[IT] has been 40 years since the launch of the Apple Macintosh personal computer. Since then, technological innovation has accelerated – here are some of the most notable tech milestones over the past four decades.
The World Economic Forum’s EDISON Alliance aims to digitally connect 1 billion people to essential services like healthcare, education and finance by 2025.
