#ECUADORPOSTCOVID19
En un post anterior mencionaba que creo que Ecuador debe enfocarse hacia el desarrollo agrícola, y tener como objetivo que en 20 años seamos la más grande potencia agrícola del s. XXI, en función de los ratios de producción y márgenes o ganancia.
@CITECec
Para conseguir un #ECUADORPOTENCIAAGRICOLA debemos hacer cambios sociales, políticos, culturales, empresariales y tecnológicos.
De esto último tratarán éste y los hilos futuros, de cómo usar las nuevas tecnologías para desarrollar el sector agrícola del país.
@Construpositivo
El objetivo es incentivar a los empresarios, gobierno, inversionistas, hacia la explotación de estos nuevos recursos.
Escenario:
En 2050, se necesitará un 50% más de alimentos en el mundo.

Listening to @RobWortham, University of Bath on:

“We can now build robots that look as though they care - but it’s a synthetic version of caring and it may well be manipulating us”

And it is terrifically dangerous”

- EO Wilson
Asimov Rules of Robotics

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

The German Army (Amt für Heeresentwicklung, to be exact) has surprised many and published a position paper on #AI for land-based forces. Will translate bits and comment.
Alright, let's do this!
The paper is available here 👇
It was published only some ten days ago, but was finished in August/September.
#AI #KI #Bundeswehr (1/)
augengeradeaus.net/wp-content/upl…
The first thing to note is that with regard to process, this paper is a bit weird: Germany has a national #AI strategy (which mentions military AI in *one sentence*) but no military #AI strategy for the whole of the Bundeswehr. However, now there is this paper for the Army.

We've been busy in the workshop but quiet on here for the last year. Here's a thread of what we've been up to:
Lots and lots of lift testing, mainly to get the chains reliable.
Most of the testing was with weights…
#robotwars #battlebots #robotcombat #robotics
Some of the testing was a deliberate 'jammed lift' (or lowering, in this case), to simulate what would happen if we got stuck.
We've also built a mock-opponent, dubbed Timb-awe, from an old packing crate. It’s about the size of an average UK heavyweight and we can add weights inside.
The score of Timb-awe vs Deadlock is about 10-1 :-(

A thread on #cpp #state_machine #software_design.

Random ideas around writing an FSM library, with examples from, and motivations behind hfsm.dev, a header-only library created using #cpp template #metaprogramming with #gamedev, #embedded and #robotics in mind.
*Reuse vs reimplement*

State machines can be deceptively complex, and, unless a trivial one is needed, a reusable framework is highly recommended.

Rolling out one's own for special needs is ok.

Otherwise - pick from a variety of existing solutions from #boost, on #github, etc.
*Static vs dynamic structure*

The first important decision is whether the structure of FSM could be built/changed at runtime.

The implementation of a dynamic FSM relies on heap-allocated memory, resizable containers and pointers, all of which come at a steep perf price.

1/ The world is changing right in front of us; never before has change been as palpable. Most if it is being driven by technology which seems to be disrupting each and every domain. The obsession with technology driving progress to the exclusion of everything else is a bane.
2/ While it isn't a good idea to ignore technology, especially those that actually improve human life and condition, including those that make decisions faster and more accurate and those that make life safer and longer, one-sided technology growth will do more harm than good.
3/ Applying technology in context of people and environment must take precedence over speed and scale. Holistic design of solutions and services in individualized moulds is the path. Because the age of average is done and dusted. The factory model of #education must be disrupted.

Now reading the the #TopolReview report - Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future. It's an illuminating read topol.hee.nhs.uk #DigitalHealth
It's clear that a lot of effort has gone into the #TopolReview - it paints a glorious vision of what healthcare would look like over the next 20 years (for both staff and patients) - enabled by technology such as #genomics, #AI and #robotics
For me the #Topolreview has too narrow a focus. It's been commissioned by healthcare, yet we know that with an aging population, many people with long term conditions have to rely upon #socialcare as well. We need joined up thinking, imho.

Yesterday this gentleman on twitter broke my heart with his tweet and it launched me on my first tweetstorm. One of the most effective ways to show girls they are more than clever enough to be scientists and leaders is to show them role models doing it. Here goes... #girlsinstem

Fellow #Entrepreneurs, let's begin our #GlobalEChats on #healthcare and #technology!

RT and follow us to keep updated on our weekly topics as well to interact with only the latest of #startup news.
So 79% of you believe that in spite of exponential #technology advancement, humans are irreplaceable in healthcare and will continue to be its frontliners.

Let's also discuss #AI and #robots in healthcare 😁
But first, how has #tech change the face of #healthcare. Let's take a trip down memory lane!

Some of the #robotics you see in healthcare today range from the electronic thermometer to crucial #life support.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

The challenge for any free society is how to offer a hand up to those struggling vs. a hand out that zaps the incentive to work. Economists like Milton Friedman argue the govt has gotten unwieldy in size and expense either way. Limited #BasicIncome would address that.
Yet the real challenge is what to do in a world where work is less plentiful & the pay increasingly anemic. That‘s what you, your wife, & kids are facing w/ #Robotics, #automation, & #MachineLearning / #AI. The social safety net will be massively important as we wrestle w/ this.
These new technologies — #Robotics & #MachineLearning esp — will touch every aspect of our society. To include #ImmigrationReform. Can America afford immigrants who‘ll be automated into irrelevance in +/- 10 years? If so, how many? My next essay will cover this important topic.

Someone labeled #QAnon a #conspiracytheory

It's not.

I can objectively show more than once what @realDonaldTrump was about to tweet before he did it and also show coordination between Q and the DOD, and Q and @JulianAssange.

Huge events are happening, it's time to awaken.
2) in addition, while it's still being uncovered, there are deeply coded messages within @realDonaldTrump tweets. The specific intentions behind all of this are many, but one vital one is to specifically prevent #conspiracytheories from being concocted.
3) Another reason disclosure is self evident, it's a public disclosure. It so happens that the disclosures are happening in a location where the user base is sufficiently #redpilled to accept the #truths -they are a bit tough to take for #normies

Have you been ignoring #autonomousweapons for the past 18 months and are now suddenly scrambling to catch up before the #CCWUN #LAWS #GGE next week? (You know who you are...) Congrats, your procrastination has been rewarded! Here's your handy autonomous weapons reading list... 1/
First, homework. The official #CCWUN food-for-thought paper by the chair. Gotta read it. Super short, tho. undocs.org/ccw/gge.1/2017… 2/
