If you don't think we humans have something to worry about I think respectfully you are being willfully naïve. What's next, military strategy? A computer like that in charge of our defense arsenal? Wasn't there a movie like that; "the Terminator" or something?




And you have the right of it. Is no one aware of that incident in which they put a learning algorithm on line to combat people in first person shooter games? It was eating them alive.

This wasn't the example to which I referred, but it's a good enough example to illustrate the point.

Or an Orwellian if less apocalyptic scenario; imagine and AI that you feed it the relevant data about a crime the suspects/alleged perps physical evidence witness interviews data from surveillance cameras etc. and it is able in minutes to correctly with much higher (& steadily improving) accuracy pinpoint the guilty parties. All without trials, rights hearings, lawyers, or eventually even appeals. To say nothing of it being able to predict ahead of time who is going to commit said crime(s) and who isn't. If they can diagnose mental illness more reliably than humans catching malefactors (or some sort of AI parole board with insanely high accuracy) can't be that much more difficult.


At the same time, Deep Patient is a bit puzzling. It appears to anticipate the onset of psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia surprisingly well. But since schizophrenia is notoriously difficult for physicians to predict, Dudley wondered how this was possible. He still doesn’t know.

Outperform will be too late to worry. By the time AI improvise whatever weird but effective AI heuristics that is close enough to effective, there'll be enough traction that it'll just be a matter of time before it improves as quickly as AlphaZero did.

Just because humans can't squeeze a precise definition of their problem solving methods from their nebulous psyche doesn't mean that computers can't crunch out a variety of good enough solutions for the real world. AI hashing out human psychology will be interesting. Not merely physical diagnosis but actually mapping out how the mind works.

First-Ever Drone Swarm Attack Has Struck Russian Military Bases, Sources Claim


Image


"As evening fell, the Russia air defence forces detected 13 unidentified small-size air targets at a significant distance approaching the Russian military bases," the Ministry said in a statement.

"Ten assault drones were approaching the Khmeimim air base, and another three – the CSS point in Tartus."

Six of the assault force drones were intercepted by Russian electronic warfare units, with three of the UAVs being brought to land outside the base, while the remaining three exploded on contact with the ground.


It's unknown who launched the swarm, with the attack being unclaimed at present. But the Russians have hinted that the technology used was too advanced for local militants, seen as a suggestion it could have been supplied by US forces in the vicinity – something the Pentagon says is "absolutely false".

If that's one of the "drones", whoever did it probably bought the high tech parts online.

If I were to claim a drone attack by an enemy I would not keep the wrapping paper on the floor

the moment, the best drone with face recognition is definitely DJI Spark. This feature is a part of Spark’s identity and functions with the entire system in a way never seen before. Simply tap DJI Spark when it is pointing towards you and when it turns on, facial recognition will boot up as well and immediately scan your face. After that Spark will rise up and the fun can begin…

CAMERA AND FEATURES
Out of this entire bunch, DJI Spark is the only drone whose FHD-ready camera runs on a hardware stabilization system. Yup, it is true – this little fella sports a fully fledged gimbal. Not a 3-axis one though – DJI Spark’s gimbal is just 2-axis, but it’s still more than enough to give you full control over the scenery. An extra dose of smoothness and anti-vibration in your aerial videos will give you a world of good too, but that’s to expect from a premium facial recognition drone such as this one.

Also, it is safe to say DJI Spark promotes the biggest feature list out of all drones showcased here. There is fluent GPS coverage as well as a huge array of autonomous flight options that will make aerial photography a simple task. Gesture controls are here too, as well as PalmLaunch and PalmControl which make a solid handsfree controlling mechanism. All in all, if you are looking for a feature-packed drone with facial recognition, look no further because DJI Spark can provide!

SPECIFICATIONS
Last but not least (not by a long shot, if we are being honest here) – DJI Spark specifications are on the table. Starting off with operating range, DJI Spark doesn’t feature OcuSync which means its standard range isn’t anything special. Barely above average in contrast to all 3 drones above. However, DJI Spark Fly More Combo fixes that thanks to the provided controller which boosts the range up to 2 kilometers. Now that’s quite the distance for this little birdie, right?! Airtime goes a lot above the average 10 minutes. More precisely, DJI Spark can endure approximately 15 minutes in the air without breaking a sweat.
In most cases, facial recognition systems use data gathered from the camera and analyze it through comprehensive algorithms to decide whether or not there’s a face in the frame. So technically, they don’t work on the same principle as, for example, Apple’s new tech. Apple’s facial recognition efforts are focused on security while drones are only interested in improving their autonomous flight ability.
