China gives Life to a Dystopian AI and Uses it to Check Party Loyalty

Posted by in categories: education, government, robotics/AI

This artificial intelligence software can acutely analyze facial expressions and brain waves to monitor if subjects were attentive to thought and political education by using a combination of polygraphs and facial scans. It can provide real data for organizers of ideological and political education, so they can keep improving their methods of education and enrich content. It can judge how party members have accepted thought and political education.

The Smart Political Education Bar analyses user’s brain waves and deploys facial recognition to discern the level of acceptance for ideological and political education. Making it possible to ascertain the levels of concentration, recognition, and mastery of ideological and political education so as to better understand its effectiveness.

President Xi, secretary of the Communist Party and leader of the nation of 1.4 billion, has demanded absolute loyalty to the party and has previously declared that thought and political education is an essential part of the government’s doctrine. They are using this technology to treat all party members as potential anti-CCP agents. The use of these techniques on officials demonstrates the sorry state of affairs within party ranks.

In February of 2012 the first Global Future 2045 Congress was held in Moscow. There, over 50 world leading scientists from multiple disciplines met to develop a strategy for the future development of humankind. One of the main goals of the Congress was to construct a global network of scientists to further research on the development of cybernetic technology, with the ultimate goal of transferring a human’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier.

2012–2013. The global economic and social crises are exacerbated. The debates on the global paradigm of future development intensifies.

Space Force Launches New Intelligence Unit as Congress Voices Concerns over Growth

Posted by in categories: government, military, space

The Space Force has assumed command of a new unit that will be focused on keeping an eye out for foreign threats in space, but it comes as Congress is warning the small service branch that it has to prepare to slow its growth.

Delta 18 and the brand-new National Space Intelligence Center were officially commissioned late last month at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. It will be staffed by nearly 350 civilian and military personnel.

Delta 18’s mission is to “deliver critical intelligence on threat systems, foreign intentions, and activities in the space domain to support national leaders, allies, partners and joint war fighters,” according to a press release.

Astronauts on Space Station Explore Artificial Intelligence and Human Nervous System

Posted by in categories: government, physics, robotics/AI, space

On Tuesday, July 5, space physics and human studies dominated the science agenda aboard the International Space Station. The Expedition 67 crew also reconfigured a US airlock and put a new 3D printer through its paces.

The lack of gravity in space impacts a wide range of physics revealing new phenomena that researchers are studying to improve life for humans on and off the Earth. One such project uses artificial intelligence to adapt complicated glass manufacturing processes in microgravity with the goal of benefitting numerous Earth-and space-based industries. On Tuesday afternoon, NASA

Established in 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an independent agency of the United States Federal Government that succeeded the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). It is responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research. Its vision is “To discover and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity.” Its core values are “safety, integrity, teamwork, excellence, and inclusion.”

Posted by in categories: government, habitats, solar power, space, sustainability

IKEA, the world’s largest furniture retailer, has announced plans to sell home solar panels in the US — a move that could democratize and demystify access to solar.

Solar hesitancy: The benefits of solar go beyond protecting the environment — solar panels are cheaper than ever, and between the lower energy bills and government subsidies, a home solar system could pay for itself before the panels need to be replaced.
