Hello Glass Jigsaw: The HRW article intelligently illustrates the perils of an autonomous AI component. While every country on the planet might sign an accord to ban such weaponry, one nefarious bad actor would knowingly have the immediate ’upper hand'. The ‘human rights for robots‘ would be better referred to as a ‘daft report’, as if there were not enough true causes bereaving the energi

Psychologists and behavioral researchers around the planet have been recording and studying the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on dreams, and sleep in general. Attributions vary from a plethora of anxieties concerning the ’unknown’ to the paucity of input from diverse environmental stimulation.

Hello Glass Jigsaw: The concerns of Human ID Chips, while morally troublesome, are ultimately, and conceptually superficial when weighed against Elon Musk’s professed long-term perturbation. Musk visualizes a time when Artificial Intelligence will overcome humankind, quite literally. In his, and others, eyes, the progressive trajectory of AI, even at this early stage, is destined to ’logical
