In a disturbing appeal, 25 renowned scientists warn of the advancing self-intelligence of artificial intelligence. This could soon act autonomously and pursue its own goals, manipulate algorithms and direct biological weapons, according to the journal "Science" (background information here). On Tuesday, the EU passed a law for more transparency in the use of artificial intelligence (via dpa). Experts believe that without effective control of AI, the world could soon spiral irreversibly out of control. However, this is also to be feared with the human intelligence currently in use. And soon means the day after tomorrow … The development of drones is an example of what war robots will look like - This is only the Beginning … For sure! Science fiction has already depicted all this very vividly: Novels and film - SOMA like Netflix and Amazon and more … ====++++==== German Version (Original Posting) |Screenshot| Created with Meta Instagram | Vivid Sydney 2024 | prompted by phb Thank you so much!

Ceterum censeo …

Gelesen auf der Website aus Berlin: Cicero dot de Teile ich als Anregung, und nicht im Ganzen meine Meinuung, weil es immer zu differenzieren gilt: Was ist angemessen Cui Bono Vorbilder Zeitgeist Die gute alte Vorbildfunktion (From Website Cicero) see above - quoted: ... "Das meine ich dann auch, wenn ich weiter oben schreibe, dass man die Debatte über die Beauty-Ausgaben der Bundesaußenministerin – und überhaupt jede Debatte über jeden Euro, den die Bundesregierung irgendwohin überweist – in einem größeren Kontext betrachten muss. Anders formuliert: Es ist schlicht unglaubwürdig, wenn man in Medien und Politik den Verzicht predigt, aber so tut, als seien 137.000 Euro für eine Visagistin oder 180.000 Euro für einen Fotografen, finanziert vom Steuerzahler, nur eine kaum relevante Randnotiz.  Und weil dem so ist, fällt mir am Ende dieses Beitrags meine Mutter wieder ein. Bevor die sich einen neuen Hosenanzug von der Stange oder einen günstigen Lippenstift vom Drogeriemarkt kaufte, wurde erstmal der Kühlschrank gefüllt, dafür gesorgt, dass daheim alles läuft und sauber ist, dass es den eigenen Kindern an nichts mangelt und alle Rechnungen bezahlt sind. Schon deshalb, weil sie mit gutem Beispiel vorangehen wollte. Mittlerweile ist meine Mutter 62 Jahre jung und hat ein neues Hobby für sich entdeckt: Sie strickt den Großteil ihrer Klamotten jetzt einfach selbst – und sieht, wenn sie aus dem Haus geht, immer noch blendend aus."

Flares

Dropping flares from a jet to a helicopter is a tactical maneuver that serves a specific purpose in military aviation. Countermeasures Against Heat-Seeking Missiles: Flares are used as countermeasures to defend against heat-seeking surface-to-air or air-to-air missiles that are fired at planes and helicopters. When an enemy missile is launched, it homes in on the heat signature emitted by the aircraft's engines or afterburners. The flares serve as decoys by burning at thousands of degrees Celsius, which is much hotter than the exhaust heat from the aircraft's engines. By deploying flares, the aircraft attempts to divert the missile away from the actual target (the aircraft) and toward the heat source (the flares). How It Works: When a missile is detected, the pilot releases a flare dispenser that ejects several flares. These flares burn brightly, creating a false heat signature that attracts the missile. Ideally, the missile locks onto the flares instead of the aircraft, allowing the aircraft to evade the threat. Safety and Professionalism: The recent incident involving a Chinese fighter jet detonating flares close to an Australian Navy helicopter was deemed unsafe and unprofessional by the Australian Defence Department. The Chinese fighter released flares along the flight path of the Australian helicopter, posing a risk to both the aircraft and personnel. The Australian government expressed its concerns to China, emphasizing the need for professional and safe military operations. Remember, flares…
