Billionaire Space Jaunts Matter for the Better

Posted by in categories: business, habitats, space travel

See how these billionaire space ventures can vastly improve life on Earth.
I support Bezos’ dream of mining asteroids and building rotational space habitats (O’neill Cylinders) that are mini Earths turned inside out to spread life through the cosmos. That said, I don’t like the Amazon Death Star approach to blasting small businesses out of business to build their empire. That said I do hope Blue Origin starts making progress toward orbit and all the best to SpaceX, Virgin Galactic, Virgin Orbit, Rocket Lab, and all the other space ventures out there!

Private Israeli spyware used to hack cellphones of journalists, activists worldwide

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, military, mobile phones, surveillance

Military-grade spyware licensed by an Israeli firm to governments for tracking terrorists and criminals was used in attempted and successful hacks of 37 smartphones belonging to journalists, human rights activists, business executives and two women close to murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to an investigation by The Washington Post and 16 media partners.

The phones appeared on a list of more than 50000 numbers that are concentrated in countries known to engage in surveillance of their citizens and also known to have been clients of the Israeli firm, NSO Group, a worldwide leader in the growing and largely unregulated private spyware industry, the investigation found.

The list does not identify who put the numbers on it, or why, and it is unknown how many of the phones were targeted or surveilled. But forensic analysis of the 37 smartphones shows that many display a tight correlation between time stamps associated with a number on the list and the initiation of surveillance, in some cases as brief as a few seconds.

The Greek Laser Weapon That Hits Drones Every 2–3 Seconds

Posted by in categories: business, drones, military, robotics/AI

The inventor of the first robot in Greece, Konstantinos Soukos, has pushed Greece into a new era by creating laser weapons that target drones.

When the inventor and businessman Konstantinos Soukos built the first robot in Greece in 1985, he did not imagine that 36 years later he would supply many military forces across the world.

Amazon Patented a New Delivery System That Could Have Your Block Crawling With Robots

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI, transportation

Last week, Amazon patented a delivery system involving self driving trucks carrying several small robots that deliver packages to homes.


Once all the small delivery bots are back on board, the truck (which would have a human driver in the near future but likely be autonomous in the less-near future) drives off to the next block—its fleet of mini-me’s restocking with new packages en route—and the scene repeats itself.

Cool/creepy? Good/bad? Depends on your perspective. On the one hand, employing fewer humans would bring Amazon more cost savings in the long run, which it would ideally pass on to customers and re-invest in other parts of the business, leading to hiring more people in a virtuous circle.

Face recognition is just the tip of the AI Computer Vision iceberg

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

These flaws in AI training give the technology a bad name, and so do regular media reports suggesting that intelligent machines are poised to decimate the human workforce. These themes, for many people, have obscured AI’s genuine usefulness in data analysis and conversational platforms. And while computer vision does indeed have its flaws, it is more than just a reflection of societal biases: it is potentially an essential tool for both society and business.

Computer vision, or CV, gives machines the power of visual recognition in a way that emulates human sight. Whether a machine is detecting dangers on the road or, more controversially, recognising faces in a crowd, the ultimate aim is to make decisions based on image interpretation.

The tech is an advanced form of pattern recognition, made through statistical comparison of data sets. This means that while machines can “see”, they have no real understanding of what they are looking at. They can distinguish one object from another, true, but can’t explain what this difference means.

Plans underway for new space station to orbit the moon

Posted by in categories: business, space travel

To the moon — and beyond.

A new partnership just announced by NASA makes it official that the space agency is very much in the business of getting back to the moon.
