#Gamma radiation in #Khmelnytsky could actually indicate that a #DirtyBomb was stored in the warehouses.
Gamma radiation is characteristic of #enriched #uranium. Is it possible that were making "dirty bombs" at the Khmelnitsky #NPP

#Capitalism/#Work: "Timed to go to the toilet. Told off for leaning. Monitored for each package completed. As a #worker at #Amazon, I often feel that we aren’t being treated as people."…
"We are treated worse than the #robots doing automated tasks in the warehouses. If the robots have an issue, the company pays for them to be serviced, whereas if we drop below certain targets multiple times, we can be fired – we have to sort it out or get out"
"Everyone who I work with at the warehouse in Coventry is frustrated.... The shifts are hard work, spent all on our feet, walking miles back and forth through large warehouses. All of that for just £10.50 an hour. That’s why about 400 workers at our warehouse are striking today."

⭐️Amid labor shortages and problems of rural isolation, #Japan is relaxing its traffic laws to allow autonomous delivery #robots to take to the streets.
1. #Japan has one of the world's oldest populations, with nearly 30 per cent of its citizens aged over 65. Many live in depopulated rural areas that lack easy access to daily necessities.
2. Labour shortages in its cities and new rules limiting overtime for truck drivers also make it difficult for businesses to keep up with delivery demands.

[THREAD] N’ayez pas peur de migrer vers #Shopify !

Un #CMS qui a fortement évolué ces dernières années en renforçant son équipe de senior #SEO. Le produit est encore tant décrié par les #agences SEO. Voici mon retour d'expérience !
Arguments principaux des clients : Solution simple, complète et pas chère : Sans développement, le CMS propose beaucoup de solutions natives ou avec des modules complémentaires paramétrables sans coder.
Équipe restreinte : Un #webmaster suffit à faire 95% des actions techniques. Plus besoin d’énorme équipe IT pour faire évoluer la solution et gagner en visibilité organique.

American copium regarding China has evolved over the years.

From “China is poor” to “China IS collapsing” to now “China is rich but WILL collapse.”

Here’s a quick debunking about the demographic crisis, one of the alleged reasons for future collapse:
1. A smaller population will be a blessing in the coming years. A lot of people still don't understand the coming revolution of AI and robots.

Like this autonomous taxi, for example.
2. If there are jobs that cannot be done by robots, there are two options:

A. Offshore those jobs to other developing nations. This will also mean higher profit margins for Chinese companies.

B. Bring in immigrants -- perhaps even on a short-term basis.

"The 21st Century Question: Emergently Engineering the Future"

Follow this 🧵 today and tomorrow for highlights from our 2022 #AppliedComplexity Network and Board of Trustees Symposium:…

#Web3 #Cities #Polarization #EmergentEngineering #Decentralization
We start with a talk by SFI President David Krakauer:

"Would anyone care to guess why we're so GOOD at building transistors and so CRAP at designing drugs?"

"This thing [points to transistor] lives in a centralized system. This thing [points to cancer drug] lives in US."
"I'm going to pick on economics, because we like to do that at SFI. 'Ooh, look at that cover! So techy. Global, heat maps...' But here's 'Networks' [in the textbook]. THAT'S IT. Here's '#ComplexityEconomics.' NOTHING."

Probablemente, te preguntarás, ¿Por qué la #automatización del #trabajo 🦾ha llamado tu atención?

¿Es acaso debido a las películas de #Terminator, o tal vez, #Robocop, #WALL·E o Nueve de #ShaneAcker? ⬇️
La verdad es que, todo esto se deriva de una muy particular #pasión por no morirme de hambre 😂 en un #mundo 🌎 cada vez más #competitivo, automatizado y #tecnológico. ⬇️ Image

Very happy to share that The Oxford Handbook of Digital Ethics is now finished and will be out in the next few months! Some of it is already published online. If you're interested in #DigitalEthics, #AIEthics, #ethics, #privacy, #AI, #philosophy, this one is for you... 🧵👇 Image
In this chapter, @SvenNyholm relates the new area of the ethics of human–#robot interaction to traditional ethical theories such as #utilitarianism, Kantian #ethics, and virtue ethics. #AIEthics…
In this chapter, Emily Sullivan and Mark Alfano (@moral_psych) develop a normative epistemic framework for sharing information online. They argue recent technological developments call for a rethinking of the norms of testimony. #epistemology…

I think $RXRX is the most advanced company working in the Tech in Biotech space. They are using #robots to run millions of experiments per week to feed all the data into their super computer.
They then use that data to find Known Chemical Entities (KCE) and New Chemical Entities (NCE). Their first 3 drugs are all going into phase 2 this year. They are KCE drugs that were in-licensed for CCM, NF-2 and FAP.
They also have a C-dif drug working on its IND. They have 3 really interesting NCE drugs in preclinic for CDK12, SKT11/KRAS and Myc. All of them have good promise.

Ancient robotics: The case of the "Automatic maid" of Philo of Byzantium (3rd century BCE). According to the sources Philo created a humanoid maid capable of preparing and filling the cups with wine.

#Robots need a better sense of touch to become dexterous.
We work on fixing this with our new sensor: “Insight” -- it uses a tiny camera and deep learning to enable high-fidelity sensing all-around with normal and shear forces.
Out today:…
I am super proud of the rest of the team @huanbo_sun and Katherine J. Kuchenbecker.

We set out to create a high-fidelity 3D tactile sensor that is robust, cheap, and easy to make.

Here is a 4-min video explaining how it works:

more below
So here are a few details:

The mechanical design is pretty unique: we use a soft elastomer that encloses a rigid thin skeleton.
-> it can withstand strong forces
-> it is very sensitive
-> surface has high friction

You are no longer secure after investing your or your parent's money in education
Because of these new trends of hiring and firing people under zero-hour contracts, agile working spaces setup during the #pandemic, working from remote location, and #AI/ML #robots replacing humans
And, if you are an Overseas Student, please don't get lured by the work permit, professional practise programs that offer industrial placement, and other visa extension nonsense, as we see in different jurisdictions.
There is no guarantee that you will find decent paid work
Already, a friend of mine, who is working as a registrar of programs at a Middle East-based university, is receiving tons of CVs a day, from respected university lecturers, and researchers from top western institutions.
I guess PhD Scholars are pre-empting sacking orders.

Interacting with artificial intelligence (AI) ➡️ AI systems that interact with humans (“conversational user interfaces”) are already here. #chatbot #robots. (thread 1/9)
It is likely that in the future “interactive AI systems” will be ubiquitous and more realistic than they are now. (2/9)
As a non-AI -expert and an interaction analyst, I’m curious about some ethical questions related to future “interactive AI interfaces”. (3/9)

Assam Chief Minister @sarbanandsonwal on January 16 handed over two robots to be used to deliver food and antibiotics to COVID-19 patients in Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) in Diburgarh as a part of the COVID-19 infrastructure equipment grant.
@sarbanandsonwal The robotic vehicles will be remotely-controllable and are designed for use in isolation wards of the quarantine facilities. The grant has been sponsored by the Rotary Foundation, Rotary Club of Dibrugarh and Rotary Club of Dhaka Royal, Bangladesh.
@sarbanandsonwal While handing over robots to the hospital, Sonowal thanked the various departments and orgainsiations for contributing in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and hailed the efforts of the frontline workers.

PSA: I can’t believe this needs to be said, but here goes: If you fully enclose an outdoor space, it becomes an indoor space. That’s it, that’s the tweet.
Change “Smoking” to “#COVID” and voila, you have a safe, ventilated outdoor space (borrowed from Smoke Free UK regulations that went into affect in 2007:…). @aoc @Ilhan @RepJimmyPanetta @KamalaHarris @BernieSanders please please spread the word.
EDIT: “safer”

You will have a safer space outdoors in the time of #COVID19.

#robotdelivery #OttonomyIO Image
.@snapdeal has said that it has successfully tested robots for e-commerce deliveries. Snapdeal has partnered with autonomous mobility startup #OttonomyIO to deliver ‘sanitized’ packages.

During the test run for the #robotdelivery in Delhi, the robots were placed at the gates of societies where a delivery agent came and placed the parcel in a compartment inside the robot.
