    There's been talk of automatic driving cars and piloting of ships.

    It's planes (trains and automobiles).

    I don't believe they need an actual "robot" for that. The aircraft's systems can do that without a metal/plastic humanoid sat in the left seat.

    Was there a dog in the right seat? There is a joke there!

    Incorrect. Australian rules football is Australia's national sport and dwarfs Rugby league in attendance. Rugby league is a distant second and is mainly supported in New South Wales and Queensland. The Average AFL crowd is approximately 20,000 more per game each week.

    I stand corrected, but do not see Aussie rules as an internationally recognized sport. It's just a quirky game that exemplifies the unique character of the country. Like Roos and many other unique species, it's specially formatted to take advantage of Australia's special people.

    Puty is spot-on here.

    So....who is in the lead? What country?


    Putin: Leader in artificial intelligence will rule world
    ificial intelligence will rule world
    September 1, 2017

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin says that whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing artificial intelligence will come to dominate the world.



    Putin, speaking Friday at a meeting with students, said the development of AI raises "colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now."

    He warned that "the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world."

    Putin warned that "it would be strongly undesirable if someone wins a monopolist position" and promised that Russia would be ready to share its know-how in artificial intelligence with other nations.

    Truck driving jobs could be first casualty of self-driving cars

    Truck drivers are stuck in the middle of the first major battle in Congress over whether self-driving cars and other artificial intelligence-enabled technologies could take away people's jobs.

    On one side, you have Democrats claiming that rolling out automated trucks too quickly will hurt employment and safety; on the other, Republicans who want to quickly move a legislative package meant to speed up the deployment of self-driving technology.

    The bigger picture: Truck drivers might be the first set of workers caught in the tug-of-war between old jobs and new technologies. But with Google, Amazon, IBM and numerous other companies staking their future of artificial intelligence, they won't be the last.

    Why now?: Lawmakers in both chambers of Congress are trying to pass legislation that would let companies test more self-driving cars across the country. A bill that passed the House didn't cover trucks, but Republicans in the Senate want to include commercial vehicles in their bill. Democrats under pressure from labor unions don't agree.

    The details:


    • Unions and their Democratic allies say that if lawmakers move too fast they'll endanger workers and anyone who uses America's roads. They want legislation to leave the question of trucks to another day. "The consequences for getting this wrong could be deadly both for workers and drivers on the roads," said Ken Hall, from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on Wednesday. "And we haven't gotten to the largest issue of them all, the potential impact on the livelihoods and wages of millions of your constituents."


    • Republicans, meanwhile, say legislation should address all types of vehicles at the same time. But they recognize that it's a complicated issue politically. "I think we as policymakers, we in industry, we have to figure out how we're going to answer that question of, 'What's going to happen to me?'" said Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner. "The answer is always with the innovations that we've been able to achieve in this country we're going to have progress, innovation and more jobs than we've ever had before. But we've got to be able to say that in a way that is helping people see that, understand that and know that they're going to be OK."

    The other coast (and the Midwest): Both Silicon Valley and Detroit are heavily invested in self-driving technology. Alphabet's Waymo, Uber and traditional automakers are all exploring self-driving trucks. Many who are closely watching the industry say they expect the trucking industry to be an early adopter of self-driving vehicles. But an industry representative said Wednesday they're more focused on technologies that can augment drivers rather than automate their roles completely. "Driverless ... that's decades away," said Chris Spear, CEO of the American Trucking Association.

    What's next?: Lawmaker are at a crossroads. "Well, I'm hoping that we can find a way to work with the Democrats to strike the right balance, you know sort of thread the needle, if you will," said Republican Sen. John Thune, who chairs the Commerce Committee, telling reporters that he hopes to file a bill by the break around Columbus Day. "So we'll see if we can stay on that schedule."

    Sound smart: This may be seen as a discrete debate over one subset of a technology that's gotten a lot of positive press attention. But it's really an early skirmish in a larger war over the impact the quickening pace of AI development means for Americans' paychecks.

    After this past week I'm wondering if automated trucks might not be the better option. JFC!

    The flying drones putting workers out of a job

    Flying drones and robots now patrol distribution warehouses - they've become workhorses of the e-commerce era online that retailers can't do without. It is driving down costs but it is also putting people out of work: what price progress?


    It could be a scene from Blade Runner 2049; the flying drone hovers in the warehouse aisle, its spinning rotors filling the cavernous space with a buzzing whine.


    It edges close to the packages stacked on the shelf and scans them using onboard optical sensors, before whizzing off to its next assignment.

    Michibiki satellites used to run unmanned harvester

    KIZUGAWA, Kyoto Prefecture--Using location information from satellites, an unmanned combine harvester automatically maneuvered through farmland here in an experiment Nov. 22 that could radically change agriculture work in Japan.


    The information was received from the Michibiki satellites during the experiment at a Kyoto University farm. About 40 people, including employees of agricultural machinery makers, attended the test.


    The satellites can detect deviations from designated courses within centimeters. Guided by satellite information about its location, a combine harvester can avoid unnecessary maneuvers while heightening efficiency of its work.


    The system is expected to help ease the workload at farms, which face the problems of worker shortages and aging owners.


    Michibiki is a series of satellites that take quasi-zenith orbits, enabling at least one to be above Japan at all times.


    In the experiment, the harvester moved at a speed of 1 meter per second. While sometimes making turns, it ran a total of 300 meters.


    The experiment confirmed that the harvester proceeded on a designated course at high accuracy.


    “The accuracy of the location information from Michibiki is so high that it can be used for automatic operations,” said Michihisa Iida, professor of agricultural machinery at Kyoto University. “The system will be able to reduce the burden of agricultural work.”


    The government plans to operate four Michibiki satellites on a full-fledged basis from fiscal 2018.


    In a growth strategy approved at a Cabinet meeting in June this year, the government plans to realize operations of unmanned agricultural machinery with remote monitoring by 2020.

    GPS has been used to control both farm machinery and construction equipment for years but they have always had an operator on board.
