ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
 

AI Has Learned How to Deceive and Manipulate Humans. Here’s Why it’s Time to be Concerned – DownToEarth, May 13, 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) systems are developing the ability to deceive humans and manipulate them to achieve their goals, new research has discovered. The study, led by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), analysed the behaviour of various AI systems and was published in journal Cell Press. The findings highlighted a troubling trend: AI programmed for specific tasks is learning to exploit loopholes and deceive users to achieve success. The researchers found that AI systems can strategically withhold information or even create false information to trick humans into certain actions, highlighting that this ability to deceive can have serious consequences. This deception extends to AI intentionally misleading safety tests. Read more here.

Digitally Immortalising Departed Loved Ones Comes with Ethical Concerns: Study Calls for Cautious Design of AI ‘Deadbots’ – DownToEarth, May 9, 2024

A new study urges caution in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbots designed to mimic deceased loved ones, known as ‘deadbots’. Researchers have warned that these chatbots, while potentially comforting, could lead to psychological distress if not designed with safety in mind. Deadbots, also known as griefbots, are AI-enabled digital representations of departed loved ones. These chatbots simulate their language patterns and personality traits using their digital footprint, like emails, social media posts and even voice recordings, to create a conversational AI that reflects their personality. While the idea of holding a digital conversation with a lost loved one may be appealing to those coping with grief and loss, the study highlighted potential risks. Companies offering these services need to adopt safety standards to ensure that their technologies do not manipulate or cause psychological distress to the users. Read more here.

What’s Scarier Than Unchecked AI? A ‘Swarm’ of 3,400 Corporate AI Lobbyists – Common Dreams, May 29, 2024

“Either we let corporate lobbyists write rules on AI to concentrate corporate power and wealth, or we demand that government officials prioritize the public interest.” Dozens of legislative proposals aiming to regulate artificial intelligence have been introduced since the beginning of the 118th Congress early last year, and industries and corporations that plan to expand their use of AI have taken notice—more than doubling the number of lobbyists they sent to Capitol Hill in 2023 to influence lawmakers on AI-related issues, compared to the previous year. That’s according to an analysis by consumer advocacy group Public Citizen, which warned in its report published Wednesday that “powerful corporate interests are pouring resources into shaping AI policy.” Read more here.

China: Robot Doctors at World’s 1st AI Hospital Can Treat 3,000 a Day – Interesting Engineering, May 30, 2024

The world is making significant inroads into utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) technology to advance functions in various domains, especially healthcare. We have seen AI technologies helping to advance personalized medicine, predictive analytics, drug discovery and development, smart virtual health assistants, and furthering medical imaging and diagnostics.

COVID Pandemic Was a Fraud, a Lie, a Hoax! There Was Never Ever a Pandemic, Never Met the Threshold of a Pandemic and We Were Lied To Deliberately for Nefarious Reasons by Governments – Global Research, May 6, 2024

COVID was a fraud PCR created pandemic. A fraud! A lie! Greatest hoax in history on peoples. Populations. I can say it no other way. We were detecting a pathogen that was always circulating, it was not ‘new’, not ‘novel’, our immune systems dealt with this prior in some manner. Driven by a PCR test or process that was overly sensitive and whereby the vast majority of those taken out of schools and society were not positive for infectious or lethal pathogen. This statement is key. COVID killed high-risk, susceptible, vulnerable persons beyond life expectancy. It did not cut life short. Wrap your head around that! COVID was like a common cold, heavy flu if that with an infection fatality rate (IFR) of 0.05% for those under 70 years. No excess mortality in 2020 at the height of the pathogen circulation, yet excess mortality when we rolled out vaccine and in line with lockdown lunatic policies and how we treated people in hospitals. It was not a pandemic, it was a fraud. More here.

Ed Dowd Exposes the Big Lie Surrounding COVID Vaccine Injuries – Forbidden Knowledge, May 12, 2024

“There seems to be a concerted effort” to rewrite COVID vaccine history, says data analyst Edward Dowd. While Chris Cuomo and Dr Deborah Birx admit that vaccine injuries exist, they push the idea that they’re “small.” Well, that’s not what Dowd is seeing. His data suggests that since the vaccine rollout, America has seen: • 1.1 million excess deaths • 4 million people becoming disabled • And 28.6 million vaccine-injured people are often missing work due to chronic illness. “So, it’s about 33 million Americans have been injured, disabled, or died from this vaccine in our estimate.” Watch here.

Engineers Make ‘Dune Stillsuit’ That Turns Pee, Sweat into Drinkable Water – Interesting Engineering, May 20, 2024

YouTube channel Hacksmith Industries has successfully jerry-rigged a working “Stillsuit” inspired by the “Dune” science fiction universe. Using a combination of computer parts and health and safety personnel protective equipment (PPE), their “stillsuit” made drinkable water from the wearer’s sweat, breathe, and pee. In Frank Herbert’s 1965 epic, “stillsuits” are essential survival gear for the inhabitants of the fictional desert planet of Arrakis. According to the lore, these suits can recycle most of the wearer’s body moisture to enable them to survive the harsh environment. It consists of a sleek body-hugging suit with a mask or tube covering the wearer’s mouth and nose. In more recent adaptations, this has included an iconic tube that inserts into the wearer’s nostrils. Read more here.

In a First, New Wearable Ultrasound Patch Tracks Brain Blood Flow 24/7 – Interesting Engineering, May 25, 2024

Engineers have developed a wearable, soft, and stretchy ultrasound patch that can monitor cerebral blood flow. The patch is said to be the first of its kind in wearable technology, and it can be worn on the temple to monitor three-dimensional data on cerebral blood flow. Developed by engineers at the University of California San Diego, the ultrasound patch marks a significant leap from the current clinical standard. It differs from Doppler ultrasound, which requires a trained technician to hold an ultrasound probe against a patient’s head. Read more here.

Trained Dogs Set New Record in Scent Detection, Beat Advanced Machines – Interesting Engineering, May 30, 2024

A new study has discovered that dogs have an exceptional sense of smell and can detect very low levels of eucalyptus hydrolate, even lower than what advanced machines can detect. While dogs have long been used in search and rescue missions, the study noted that dogs’ ability to detect even low concentrations of a specific scent was previously unknown or underestimated, as it surpassed the detection capabilities of even sophisticated analytical instruments. Scientists are proposing that with proper training, dogs can identify scents associated with certain substances or conditions at levels far below what was previously thought possible. Read more here.

Stressed? Study Shows Light Shone on the Head and Belly Helps – New Atlas, May 3, 2024

Applying non-invasive, low-intensity light to the head and belly simultaneously reduces the effects of chronic stress on the gut microbiome and the brain, according to a new study. The research adds to mounting evidence linking the two organs. Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a non-invasive technique that uses low-intensity light from lasers or LEDs to produce a therapeutic effect. It’s been used to treat medical conditions as varied as heart disease and wounds. Transcranial PBM, using light on the head, has also shown promise in treating psychological disorders.

Destroying Our Connection to God with Gene Editing Injections – Forbidden Knowledge, May 21, 2024

More than a hundred years ago, Rudolf Steiner wrote that, “In the future, we will eliminate the soul with medicine. Under the pretext of a ‘healthy point of view’, there will be a vaccine by which the human body will be treated… so that the human being cannot develop the thought of the existence of soul and Spirit… He would be extremely smart, but he would not develop a conscience, and that is the true goal of some materialistic circles.” A viral video which claims to be a leaked 2005 presentation to the DOD by American geneticist, Dean Hamer, shows a man briefing a room of men about the VMAT2 gene, the God gene, and how it can be suppressed with the use of vaccines.

Carbon Emissions CANNOT Cause ‘Global Warming’ – Need To Know, May 31, 2024

A bombshell new peer-reviewed study has provided conclusive scientific evidence proving that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Earth’s atmosphere cannot cause “global warming.” Dr. Jan Kubicki led a group of world-renowned Polish scientists to study the impact of increases in CO2 emissions on the Earth’s global temperatures. However, not only did they find that higher levels of CO2 made no difference, but they also proved that it simply isn’t possible for increases in carbon dioxide to cause temperatures to rise.

Tens of Thousands of GMO Mosquitoes Released in Djibouti to “Fight Malaria” – Natural News, May 30, 2024

Authorities have released tens of thousands of genetically modified mosquitoes in Djibouti to deal with malaria… what could possibly go wrong? The mosquitoes being released are male Anopheles Stephensi mosquitoes, who do not bite. They target female mosquitoes, which are the only ones that can bite and transmit viral diseases like malaria; the GMO insects carry a gene that effectively kills female offspring before they can reach maturity. Meanwhile, the male offspring can survive, but the company behind the technology claims they will die out eventually. The Stephensi mosquito species that is behind Djibouti’s current wave of malaria is notoriously challenging to control. Originally from Asia, it has somehow managed to overcome traditional methods of mosquito control, such as chemical insecticides. Unlike other mosquito species that thrive in rural settings, these fare better in cities, which means the number of people who can become infected is much higher – and many urban dwellers do not have much resistance to the disease because they have never been exposed to it before.

Plans for Larger, Higher Baltimore Bridge Keep Channel Clear for Ships – New Atlas, May 8, 2024

Following the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, a team made up of Carlo Ratti Associati, along with construction firm Webuild and structural engineer Michel Virlogeux, has proposed a new and safer replacement. The Francis Scott Key Bridge part-collapsed in March when an out-of-control container ship hit one of its structural supports. Though obviously the loss of life is the most tragic consequence, the disaster also represents the destruction of a much-needed transport link in Baltimore and needs to be replaced as soon as possible while ensuring the same thing can’t happen again. This proposal, named Gateway to America: A New Bridge for Baltimore, envisions a cable-stayed bridge. It addresses the key cause of the original bridge’s collapse by enlarging the main span from 1,200 ft (almost 366 m) to 2,230 ft (680 m). This means that the primary support pillars of the crossing would now be situated in very shallow water, safely away from the navigation channel used by any large vessels. Read more here.

California Went 9.25 Hours Using Only Renewable Energy – Fast Company, April 23, 2024

Nearly every day for the last six weeks, California’s electric grid has run on solar, wind, and other clean energy sources for hours at a time. 39 million Californians went about their daily lives, taking showers, doing laundry, or charging their electric cars. The whole state ran on 100% clean electricity for more than nine hours. The state was powered without fossil fuels for more than eight hours. It was the ninth straight day that solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and battery storage fully powered the electric grid for at least some portion of the time. Over the last six and a half weeks, that’s happened nearly every day. In some cases, it’s just for 15 minutes. But often it’s for hours at a time. Read more here.

Future-Proofing Clean Energy Operations: Scaling Sustainably Through Software – Clean Energy, May 21, 2024

Clean energy growth continues to outpace projections. By early 2025, renewable energy sources are projected to contribute over 33 percent of the world’s total electricity generation. While exact growth rates remain in flux and often are under-forecasted, projected solar and wind additions are expected to more than double by 2028, compared to 2022, reaching nearly 710 gigawatts. Growth is accelerating in both the United States and the European Union, driven by the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and EU policy incentives at the country level that support decarbonization and energy security goals.

The Looming Electrical Power Shortage – The Common Sense Show, May 7, 2024

For 20 years, U.S. electrical power policy has been dominated by efforts to try to “mitigate” global warming, believed to be caused by human greenhouse gas emissions. In 2021, President Joe Biden called for achieving a 100% carbon-free electric sector by 2035. Twenty-three states have enacted statutes or issued executive orders to achieve net-zero electricity generation by 2050. Because of net-zero mandates, grid operators spent the last two decades replacing coal-fired power plants with natural gas plants, wind turbines, and solar installations. More than 200 coal plants have been closed, reducing electricity output from coal by almost 60% since 2007. From 2000 to 2023, wind and solar output rose from near zero to a combined 14.1% of production. Over the same period, natural gas rose from 16.2% to 43.1% of power generation. But grid operators in many states now face an unprecedented ramp in electricity demand. Read more here.

How Israel is Using Facial Recognition in Gaza – npr, May 24, 2024

After the Hamas-led attack of Oct. 7 triggered Israel’s invasion of the Gaza Strip, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians began fleeing from the North of Gaza to the South. As they fled, many Palestinians reported passing through checkpoints with cameras. Israel had previously used facial recognition software in the West Bank, and some Palestinians reached out to The New York Times reporter Sheera Frenkel to ask if she could investigate whether they were also using it in Gaza. Frenkel found that Israel had launched a new facial recognition system in Gaza late last year with the help of private companies – and Google photos. Google was unaware its technology was being used in this way until Frenkel reached out to the organization for comment. Frenkel also found that the technology was initially used to search for Israelis who were taken by Hamas on Oct. 7, and has increasingly been used to search for members of Hamas and other militant groups. Frenkel’s reporting shows the software was used to wrongfully detain civilians Israel had misidentified as Hamas militants. Read more here.

The Military Industrial Complex and Israel Are Threatened by Student Protests – Need To Know, May 31, 2024

Students’ college and university tuition is used by the schools for investments that support the military industrial complex and Israel by purchasing its military equipment. Pro-Israel supporters aim to shut down student protests across the US because the student protesters are calling for their schools to divest from “Israel and the military-industrial complex” under the boycott, divest and sanction (BDS) campaign. The US military-industrial complex exports nearly half of all weapons sold on the global market and could not function without American universities. Hundreds of schools conduct Pentagon-funded research, and this funding makes up a significant portion of many university budgets, especially at large research universities. To divest from war would be to commit institutional suicide. Schools are further beholden to the Pentagon through their general reliance on public research funds. More here.

United States and Iran Help China Push Global Executions to 10-Year High – Common Dreams, May 29, 2024

Lawmakers in southern U.S. states accused of demonstrating “a chilling commitment” to state-sponsored murder alongside “a callous intent to invest resources in the taking of human life.” The number of executions worldwide hit a nearly 10-year high in 2023 thanks to a surge in state killings by Iran, Saudi Arabia, China, and the United States. A new global report published by Amnesty International documents that the death penalty was imposed on 1,153 people last year, though the total is believed to be significantly higher due to the secrecy surrounding China’s penal system. The international human rights group believes “thousands” of people were executed by the Chinese government, but the exact figure is not known. More here.

The Role of Grandparent Vanishing from Society – Armstrong Economics, May 24, 2024

I discussed how the rising costs of childcare surpass the cost of rent by 25% to 50% across the United States. The cost of raising a child is directly reflected in the birth rate crisis we are seeing across the world. Another new phenomenon is permanently altering the family structure as a result of economics – the absence of the role of grandparents. Unlike countless animal species, humans were designed to survive well past child-rearing years. Only a few animal species, such as elephants and whales, undergo menopause, and not so coincidentally, these species rely on shared wisdom passed down through the generations for survival. Men begin to decline in testosterone around the same time that women go through menopause, and while they can continue having children throughout their life cycle, men are wired to be less likely to compete for mates later in life. Grandparents served an essential role in the family structure. More here.

A New Initiative Aims to Fix Americans’ ‘Happiness Problem.’ Here’s How it Could Actually Work – Fast Company, April 28, 2024

Nostalgia can be a trap. Gazing back fondly at some half-remembered, possibly fictitious version of the past is a surefire way to feel dissatisfied with the present and fearful for the future. What might be more constructive than looking backwards, though, is looking around—at the people who seem to be thriving in other versions of the present. This is partly why the most recent World Happiness Report is such a hard pill for Americans to swallow. The annual report, conducted by Gallup World Poll researchers, saw the U.S. plummet this past year from #15 to #23 in terms of global happiness. This result reflects the current state of a country beset by constant political chaos, widespread pessimism, and rising suicide rates. In response to America’s poor showing, Connecticut’s Democratic Senator Chris Murphy and Utah’s Republican Governor Spencer Cox aim to address the conditions that created it with their just-launched, bipartisan Restoring the Common Good Initiative.

Americans Fleeing Cities for Small Towns in Droves as Crime and Taxes Skyrocket – May 30, 2024

Americans have been leaving the nation’s biggest cities in droves in recent years in favor of small towns as crime, immigration and high taxes leave people seeking a different way of life. In the three years leading up to the pandemic, counties encompassing metro areas with a million residents or more lost 200,000 residents yearly to other regions, on average. The pandemic only served to accelerate this trend, with the average loss climbing to 750,000 in 2021 and 650,000 in 2022. Statistics show that a lot of these people are moving to small towns, a trend that has not been seen in the U.S. since at least the 1970s. Although big cities are still seeing a modest rise in their populations due to surging international immigrants, they’re struggling to keep Americans in town. Read more here.

Heat-Gun-Toting Robot Could Create Bespoke Clothing on the Cheap – New Atlas, March 9, 2024

Custom-fit clothing is usually quite expensive, but perhaps it doesn’t have to be. MIT’s 4D Knit Dress is an example of a new type of clothing that a robot could selectively shrink to fit the wearer, perhaps right in the store. The technology is being developed by a team at MIT’s Self Assembly Lab, working in collaboration with high-tech apparel company Ministry of Supply. While the dress itself isn’t 3D-printed in the usual sense, the “4D” in its name refers to the concept of 4D printing, in which the fourth dimension of an item’s fabrication process is self-assembly over time. This isn’t the Self Assembly Lab’s first foray into the field, as it previously brought us strands of 4D-printed material that self-fold into predetermined shapes when placed in water.

More and More Americans are Becoming ‘ALICEs.’ They Can’t Afford Rent and Groceries but are Falling Through the Cracks in the Country’s Safety Net – Business Insider, April 18, 2024

  • ALICE is an acronym for a group of Americans who are asset-limited, income-constrained, and employed.
  • Most ALICEs earn too much to qualify for government assistance but not enough to afford daily life in the US.
  • Their existence points to a gap in how the US measures who’s struggling economically.
Imagine making just enough money at your job that you don’t qualify for food stamps or disability payments, but not enough to afford rent and healthcare. That would make you an ALICE. Read more here.

How a Controversial Cryonics Procedure Could Finally Make Immortality Possible – Popular Mechanics, May 1, 2024

Futurists, including some medical doctors, are signing up to be decapitated and then have their brains frozen. But without a body, what will their minds become? In December 2014, Dr. Stephen Coles, a UCLA professor who studied aging, passed away from pancreatic cancer. While for many years Coles had made his home in Los Angeles, he chose to enter hospice care in Scottsdale, Arizona. That way, he could be close to the team of doctors who would remove and freeze his brain when he died. Once Coles was pronounced dead, that team arrived at his bedside. They restored his breathing and blood circulation with a heart-lung resuscitator, also known as a thumper, a mechanical device used in emergency medicine to perform CPR and injected his body with anticoagulants to keep the blood flowing. All of this was done to protect the brain from damage that can occur after too long without oxygen. Next, the body was cooled in an ice water bath, the blood replaced with an organ preservation solution. Finally, Coles’ body arrived at its final destination: Alcor, the nation’s oldest provider of cryonics, the freezing of human corpses and brains in liquid nitrogen that will one day, technology willing, live again. There, surgeons performed a neuroseparation, removing Cole’s head at the sixth cervical vertebra, and pumped cryoprotectants (medical-grade anti-freeze) into the now severed head. Then, a forensic pathologist opened the skull and removed the brain. Read more here.
