KI und USA

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!

USA und Trump | Die ZEIT

Quelle: Die ZEIT Die zweite Maxime der Doktrin, die Nichteinmischung der Vereinigten Staaten in europäische Konflikte, erschien bis vor Kurzem nur noch als historische Reminiszenz. Im 19. Jahrhundert hatten die europäischen Mächte sie gar nicht ernst genommen, im 20. Jahrhundert war ihnen die »Einmischung« der USA im Kampf gegen den Kaiser, Hitlerdeutschland und die sowjetische Bedrohung dann hochwillkommen. Bis heute beruht die Sicherheit Europas auf der Beistandsgarantie Washingtons. Aber mit der Renaissance des »America first«-Isolationismus unter Donald Trump könnte sich dies ändern. »Europa den Europäern!« würde für diese ein böses Erwachen bedeuten. Im Kreml dagegen wäre man gewiss zufrieden. Bing dazu: The Monroe Doctrine was a foreign policy statement made by President James Monroe in 1823. It declared that the United States would not tolerate any European intervention in the affairs of the Western Hemisphere, and that any such intervention would be considered a hostile act against the United States1. The doctrine was intended to protect the newly independent Latin American countries from European colonialism and to establish the United States as the dominant power in the region1. In recent years, the Monroe Doctrine has been invoked by the Trump administration as a warning to China and Russia2. However, the doctrine has been criticized for being outdated and irrelevant in the modern world1. Critics argue that the doctrine is a relic of the past and that it is no longer applicable to the current geopolitical landscape1. They also argue…

Barack Obama and Michelle in the White House

QUOTE:"Someone — someone once said that if you’re looking for a friend in Washington, get a dog. Our family was lucky enough to have two wonderful dogs. But I was even luckier to have a chance to spend eight years working day and night with a man who became a true partner and a true friend. Joe, it is now America’s good fortune to have you as President. You have guided us through some perilous times. You’ve built on and gone beyond the work we all did together to expand healthcare, to fight climate change, to advance social justice, and to promote economic fairness. Thanks to your decency and thanks to your strength — maybe most of all thanks to your faith in our democracy and the American people — the country is better off than when you took office, and we should all be deeply grateful for that. So, thank you so much." From Apple News / My Screenshot phb
