Microsoft, Nokia reunite after failed $ 7 billion smartphone deal

 Cache   

San Francisco: After a failed $7 billion acquisition of Nokia's smartphone business five years back, Microsoft has announced a strategic collaboration with the Finnish company to accelerate transformation and innovation across industries with Cloud, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).

The new partnership brings together Microsoft cloud solutions and Nokia's expertise in mission-critical networking, to help enterprises and communications service providers (CSPs) transform their businesses.

"Bringing together Microsoft's expertise in intelligent cloud solutions and Nokia's strength in building business and mission-critical networks will unlock new connectivity and automation scenarios," Jason Zander, executive vice president, Microsoft Azure, said in a statement on Tuesday.

BT is the first global communications service provider to offer its enterprise customers a managed service that integrates Microsoft Azure cloud and Nokia SD-WAN solutions.

"Together, we will accelerate the digital transformation journey towards Industry 4.0, driving economic growth and productivity for both enterprises and service providers," said Kathrin Buvac, President of Nokia Enterprise and Chief Strategy Officer.

The Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (Nokia DAC) 5G-ready industrial-grade private wireless broadband solution with on-premise Azure elements will enable a wide variety of secure industrial automation solutions.

"For example, connected smart tools and machines on manufacturing floors that enable increased productivity, flexibility and safety for workers, or autonomous vehicles and robots in industrial environments that improve automation, efficiency and overall safety," said Microsoft.

Enterprises will be able to use Azure IoT Central and partner solutions for faster and easier enablement and implementation of their IoT applications together with Nokia's IoT connectivity solutions.

In 2014, Microsoft acquired Nokia's smartphone business. The company later quit the smartphone business, laying off thousands of employees.

In 2016, Microsoft sold the Nokia smartphone business for $350 million to HMD Global which now sells Nokia-branded phones.



          

Analysis: the numbers behind the FCA and PSA merger

 Cache   
FCA PSA cars
The FCA-PSA tie-up gathers 15 brands under the same roof
As the car-making groups agree to tie the knot, we take a closer look at the merger's prospects

The agreed merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the PSA Group will create the world’s fourth-largest car company based on sales.

The two European firms last week announced their intention to create a new entity owned 50/50 between the two but led by PSA’s CEO, Carlos Tavares. PSA will also appoint six board members against five for FCA, in effect giving the French company control over the decision-making.

The combination of the two will create a 15-brand automotive behemoth that together sold 4.2 million vehicles in the first half of this year, behind the Volkswagen Group, Toyota and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance but ahead of General Motors and Hyundai-Kia, figures from Jato Dynamics show.

The company would be big enough “to capture successfully the opportunities and manage effectively the challenges of the new era in mobility”, according to a joint statement referencing the high cost of investing in new technologies such as EVs and autonomous cars.

Despite being highly profitable, FCA has been chasing a merger ever since its previous CEO, the late Sergio Marchionne, warned in his 2015 treatise ‘Confessions of a Capital Junkie’ that car makers had to consolidate in order to have any hope of controlling spiralling development costs. FCA have since been rebuffed time and again, most recently after talks with Renault collapsed earlier this year.

Now, just over a year after his death, Marchionne’s dream has been realised. By sharing technology and platforms and pooling other resources, the companies will eventually make combined annual savings of €3.7 billion (£3.2bn), the two said in a statement.

This figure could be achieved without shutting factories, the statement said – something PSA has proved it can do after successfully turning around GM’s loss-making Vauxhall-Opel division.

The barriers to success are huge. FCA might be profitable but, of the €7.3bn (£6.3bn) it made last year in pre-tax profits, €6.2bn (£5.3bn) was made in the US thanks in the main to demand for Ram pick-ups and Jeep SUVs. The company struggles in Europe, where demand for its core Fiat brand is too heavily dependent on sales of the lower-margin 500 and Panda city cars. It also fails to make serious money from its storied but underfunded premium brands, Alfa Romeo and Maserati.

PSA could quickly fix Fiat in Europe, argues Felipe Munoz, a global analyst at Jato Dynamics. “FCA could make use of the new 208/Corsa platform to re-enter the supermini segment with a new Punto,” he said. A new Tipo could then follow on the Peugeot 308 platform.

A bigger problem is FCA’s industrial base in Italy, where it has an astonishing 27 manufacturing facilities for vehicles and parts. Over-staffing in underfunded factories running far below capacity is a serious problem that will take all of Tavares’ skill to negotiate. He won praise in the UK for – so far – managing to keep Vauxhall’s two plants running while still returning Vauxhall/Opel to profitability, and Italian unions are seeking assurances that the same can happen in Italy, where Fiats, Alfas, Maseratis and smaller Jeeps are built.

The interesting question is what happens to Alfa Romeo and Maserati? Turning Maserati into the Italian equivalent of VW Group profit machine Porsche has always been the tantalising goal, and earlier this year FCA announced a €5bn (£4.3bn) investment programme to electrify Maserati and launch a new sports car with both electric and combustion engines by next year. PSA described Maserati and Alfa Romeo as having “substantial development potential”, and maybe Tavares is the man to fully unlock this. Or maybe he’s the man to finally sell Alfa Romeo to the VW Group, which it historically has coveted.

The big strengths of the planned merger are in SUVs and vans – the two most profitable segments right now. An FCA-PSA merger creates the world’s largest van maker, with sales in excess of half a million in the first half of the year, according to Jato Dynamics. It is also the world’s third-largest SUV maker, with sales of 1.5 million over the same period. Combined, it sold more than 1.2 million smaller cars (up to Astra size) but is seriously under-represented in medium-sized saloons (14th largest globally), which the new entity will need to address to overcome weakness in China.

Max Warburton, an analyst at Bernstein, acknowledged that Europe is likely to be the biggest benefit. “It’s obvious that PSA does not offer any synergies in the US, and very little in Latin America,” he said. “Putting PSA and FCA together in China doesn’t solve much, either: two wrongs don’t make a right. A deal does nothing to change Alfa and Maserati’s prospects, either.”

New Kia Futuron concept previews future electric SUVs

 Cache   
2019 Kia Futuron Striking high-rider takes styling inspiration from UFOs and is said to offer 'lightning-fast' acceleration

Kia has unveiled the new Futuron concept as an indication of what a new line of electric SUVs from the Korean manufacturer could look like. 

Making its public debut at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai, the concept takes the form of a two-door SUV with a coupe-style curved roofline. The firm says the model’s design is notable “for its pure, smooth form, devoid of ornament”.

Measuring 4850mm from bumper to bumper, the Futuron is comparable in length to Byton’s similarly positioned M-Byte electric SUV, the Audi E-tron and Jaguar’s I-Pace, but a roofline just 1550mm off the ground matches that of smaller SUVs like the Skoda Kamiq and the hydrogen-powered Hyundai Nexo

An especially notable feature of the concept’s design is a new version of Kia’s trademark ‘tiger nose’ grille (present on all of its production cars for more than ten years), which has been significantly expanded to create a ‘tiger face’. The front end also showcases a new ‘Star Cloud’ lighting design that's incorporated into the grille and uses movable ‘scales’ to alternate between daytime running lights and full-beam headlights. 

Kia hints that this front end design, itself an evolution of that sported by the four-door ‘Imagine by Kia’ concept, could soon feature across its line-up. 

Exact powertrain specifications are unconfirmed, but Kia has revealed that the Futuron keeps its power in a high-capacity battery pack that's mounted beneath its floor to maximise interior space and ensure a low centre of gravity. This unit sends power to four electric motors, one on each wheel, which are said to offer “lightning-fast responses to driver inputs”. 

The Futuron’s interior is equally futuristic, combining a minimalist layout with advanced autonomy functions to enhance the urban driving experience. 

A diamond-shaped panoramic glasshouse is said to be inspired by ‘UFO and flying saucer design’, and offers a clear view of the road ahead while maximising the amount of natural light in the cabin. It also incorporates a network of LiDAR sensors that enable Level 4 self-driving functions. 

The front seats are fully reclinable, enabling drivers to take their eyes off the road when the car is in its autonomous mode, which Kia says will help to reduce fatigue on long journeys. The exterior’s ‘Star Cloud’ lighting pattern features on the door panels, with a similarly ‘scaley’ surface housing the air conditioning and heating vents. 

The Futuron’s 360-degree cabin shape is emphasised by a thin, interactive light bar that wraps around the entire body and responds to physical movements from outside the car. 

Kia has offered several indications as to how its future line-up is taking shape recently. The SP Signature and Mohave Masterpiece SUVs shown earlier this year previewed a pair of combustion-engined SUVs, while the rugged HabaNiro gave an idea of what to expect from the next-generation Niro, launching in 2021.

BotRide to Provide Free AV Rides in Southern California

 Cache   

A new ride-hailing pilot project in Southern California is experimenting with autonomous mobility.

BotRide launched in Irvine on Nov. 4 with a fleet of 10 autonomous Hyundai KONA electric SUVs, all of which will provide free service in a part of the city of Irvine that includes the campus of University of California Irvine. Officials overseeing the project say the area was chosen deliberately.

“The pilot introduces BotRide to several hundred Irvine residents, including college students. The goal is to study consumer behavior in an autonomous ride-sharing environment,” said Christopher Chang, head of business development, strategy and technology division, Hyundai Motor Company, in a statement.

The three-month pilot is a joint effort between Hyundai, Via Metropolitan Transit, and Pony.ai. In order to use the service, riders must download the BotRide app. Although the vehicles are being driven autonomously, the cars will also have human operators, said Andy Ambrosius, principal of public relations at Via.

Pony.ai provides the autonomous technology for the vehicles, while Via will provide expertise in shared-ride, on-demand transit.

Pony.ai, founded in 2016, is testing its AV technology in other U.S. locations, as well as China, using sensor hardware and proprietary software. The company holds the testing permit issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. The California DMV has authorized AV testing for 64 companies, as of Oct. 2. All testing must be done with a human operator in the vehicle. 

Fully autonomous testing, without a human driver, is allowed on public roadways in neighboring Arizona. 

The pilot to bring autonomous technology onto the streets of Irvine was met with stinging opposition from at least one member of the Irvine City Council.

“This seems like some little plaything for UCI [University California Irvine] students to come onto the streets where we live, with our families. And I’m completely against it,” said Michael C. Carroll, a member of the Irvine City Council, during his remarks opposing the program at the Oct. 22 City Council meeting.

Projects to test AVs require state approval, but do not need the green light from the local municipality, a point Carroll found particularly troubling.

For its part, Pony.ai, the tech company testing the AV technology, says it coordinated the project with city and university officials who "have full visibility to and knowledge of the BotRide pilot," said Christine Qing, a spokeswoman for Pony.ai.

"In addition, the Irvine Police Department went through a live training session prior to deployment," Qing added. 

Still, local lawmakers are too often overlooked, said Carroll. 

“This is yet another example of the complete take-over attempts by the state of California to meddle in the cities’ local affairs,” said Carroll, adding the city should have been given broader notice of the pilot and more input into the particulars such as the location, time frame and other details.

“As a councilmember, and an extremely concerned homeowner and a resident of the already congested and traffic-challenged southwest part of Irvine, I do not understand how the city council has zero input on this decision,” said Carroll, who also voiced concern that the cars would pose fatal danger. 

Via company officials say Irvine was selected for the location of the pilot due to its suburban setting and the relative lack of public transit in the area.

Record Review: Weezy Ford, Sugarcane

 Cache   
On Sugarcane, Weezy Ford’s sugar-sweet vocals and razor-sharp songwriting offer a satisfying volley for her reverb-drenched rockers. by Ryan J. Prado

Bearing witness to the careful blooming of Weezy Ford’s musical identity has been fun. Evolving from the snarling, rockabilly understudy of her big sister Sallie, Weezy Ford has carved out an autonomous, though no-less-rollicking figure of rock ’n’ roll abandon.

On her sophomore album, Sugarcane, Ford zeroes in on wanderlust for inspiration, with ghosts of yé-yé rebels punctuating her already explosive take on garage rock. The specters haunt the record from the outset, with the fittingly titled “YeYe” skittering through a spooky intro festooned by keys, slide electric guitar, and finally, a lovely little verse progression that’s perfect for Ford’s delicate singing. Here and later on Sugarcane, the reconciliation of Ford’s sugar-sweet vocals and razor-sharp songwriting offer a satisfying volley for her reverb-drenched rockers. Her voice is never pushed beyond the mix, but instead surfaces in angelic whispers, cooing the crux of the song over dirty, rhythmic bedrock.

The warmth of the record is indebted in part to the custom, all-analog recording gear used by Ford and multi-instrumentalist/engineer/producer Mark Robertson (Harlowe, Green Hills Alone). It’s a crisp, full-bodied affair that lays the perfect foundation for Ford’s ululating timbre on scintillating tracks like “Ridin’,” a song ready-made for road-trip revelry.

Tracks like “God Out West” and “Don’t Let It All Hang Out” feel like roadhouse anthems in a hitchhiker flick, raucous and seething even when they’re driven by Ford’s saccharine yelps. The latter is the most furrow-browed moment on the record, utilizing driving, distorted bass, keys, and splashy percussion in a song that advocates female empowerment.

The title track is a love tune to Robertson, with whom Ford has been romantically involved for some time. The song’s sonic patinas resonate like kisses on a mirror, leaving the residue of its unabashed gooey sentiment on every note.

Another standout is “Pools of Dreams.” The song leans more into a post-punk synthscape, with deep space flutters accentuating a dreamy Mazzy Star chorus from Ford, singing, “Washed myself of my fears/Washed away all of those years.”

There is a profound sense of artistic and spiritual liberation throughout Sugarcane; Ford’s talents for recognizing them and using them to her advantage make for an engaging follow-up to her debut EP.

News Roundup

 

Zuckerberg, Facebook under mounting pressure over political ads

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to meet with civil rights leaders this week after his company has maintained its policy to leave up political ads containing false statements by politicians. The company has applied the policy unevenly, first allowing Donald Trump to maliciously post an ad with false information about Joe Biden; then leaving up an Elizabeth Warren ad containing false information designed to illustrate the absurdity of Facebook’s ad policy.  During a hearing, Zuckerberg also admitted to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that if she were to place a false political ad, that the company would probably leave it up. 

 

But Facebook is inexplicably removing false ads placed by Political  Action Committees. One notable example is an ad placed the Really Online Lefty League – ROLL – a Political Action Committee co-founded by Adriel Hampton – which falsely claimed that Lindsey Graham supports the New Green Deal. Hampton, an experienced marketing and political strategist, responded by filing to run for governor of California. Then gubernatorial candidate Hampton posted a false political ad and Facebook took it down, saying his campaign wasn’t legit—that it was just a ploy to place a false ad to see what Facebook would do. Even though Hampton says he fully expects to win the governorship, Facebook hasn’t reinstated the ad.

 

It’s a mess.

 

Top officials from the NAACP, National Urban League, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights are scheduled to meet with Zuckerberg this week to express their concerns with Facebook’s political ad policy, which the company now says has been extended to the UK.

 

Facebook sued for age, gender bias in financial services ads

 

A plaintiff in San Francisco filed a potential class action federal lawsuit last week claiming that Facebook discriminates against users based on age and gender in determining who can see financial services ads.  The lawsuit comes 7-months after Facebook agreed to tailor its platform to avoid discrimination on the basis of age, gender and zip code for job, credit, and housing ads.

 

US launches Tik Tok investigation

 

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has launched a national security investigation into Tik Tok, which is owned by the Chinese firm Bytedance. A bipartisan cohort of lawmakers including Democrat Chuck Schumer, Republican Marco Rubio, and Tennessee Democratic Congressman Bart Gordon have all expressed concern about how the Chinese government uses TikTok’s data. TikTok’s growth has been outpacing the growth of incumbent social media companies in the U.S.

 

 

Snowden: Facebook as untrustworthy as the NSA

 

Whistleblower Edward Snowden, who is exiled in Russia for blowing the lid off the National Security Agency’s mass data collection practices six years ago, told ReCode’s Kara Swisher last week that Facebook is as untrustworthy as the NSA when it comes to privacy. But he didn’t limit his remarks to Facebook. He said that all tech companies are looking to exploit our personal data no matter the consequences. He also said that, on the surface, users may appear not to be concerned about how big tech companies handle their data but that, in reality, users are very concerned but feel powerless.

 

Five people shot and killed at Airbnb rental

 

Five people were shot and killed at an Airbnb rental Northern California during a Halloween party on Thursday. The rental listing on Airbnb prohibited parties and the renter claimed it was renting the space for family members who were suffering from smoke inhalation from the fires in the Los Angeles area. A witness reported to Buzzfeed that the shooting occurred with apparently no provocation. Airbnb has banned the renter from the platform.

 

China launches 5G network

 

Chinese officials announced last week that it would roll out 5G to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou 2 months ahead of schedule. The country also announced plans to roll out 5G to over 50 cities by the end of this year. While U.S. telecom companies have begun their 5G roll-out, it’s largely been rolled out on higher frequency bands than the 5G service that’s being rolled out in China. The lower frequency bands that China’s using cover a larger surface area, while the higher frequency bands U.S. companies are using are more powerful but cover less ground.

The Senator cites the disproportionate impact that facial recognition technology threatens to have on the nation’s most vulnerable communities.

Apple announced that it will invest $2.5 billion to address California’s affordable housing shortage. Some of those funds will be applied statewide. Others will be allocated for projects in the Bay Area. Three hundred million dollars will go towards affordable housing on Apple-owned property.

 

Following Katie Hill’s resignation, Democrats push for revenge porn law

 

Thirty-five democrats in Congress sent a letter to the House Judiciary Committee to pass a federal revenge porn law that would criminalize the nonconsensual posting of sexually explicit images online. The letter followed Congresswoman Katie Hill’s resignation from Congress after someone posted nude images depicting her and others as well as accusations that she was having inappropriate relations with campaign and congressional staffers. Hill blames her husband, whom she is in the process of divorcing, for posting the photos.

 

 

MIT president acknowledges discrimination against minorities and women on campus

 

Finally, Massachusetts Institute of Technology president Rafael Reif acknowledged last week that women and people of color often face exclusion and belittlement on campus and that it’s something the university is trying to improve. The development follows revelations of Jeffrey Epstein’s ties to the university.

Substrate reduction therapy for Krabbe disease and a new murine model for cell-autonomous expression of lysosomal hydrolases

 Cache   

Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are typically caused by a deficiency in a soluble acid hydrolase and are characterized by the accumulation of undegraded substrate in the lysosome. There has been minimal success in developing a therapy to treat Krabbe disease, a lysosomal storage disease caused by the deficiency of galactocerebrosidase (GALC) activity. Here we test a novel substrate reduction therapy (SRT) compound, a competitive inhibitor of UDP-galactose:ceramide galactosyltransferase (CGT), both as a single modality therapy and in combination with BMT or AAV-directed gene therapy in the murine model of Krabbe disease (Twitcher). Although progress has been made towards developing effective therapies for LSDs, determining the role of specific cell types in the pathogenesis of LSDs would undoubtedly uncover additional therapeutic targets. However, this has been a major challenge due to the secretion and subsequent uptake of lysosomal hydrolases by adjacent cells, often referred to a ‘cross-correction’. Here we create and validate a mouse model for cell-autonomous expression of GALC. We show that lysosomal membrane-tethered GALC (GALCLAMP1) retains enzyme activity, is able to cleave galactosylsphingosine, and is unable to cross-correct. Ubiquitous expression of GALCLAMP1 fully rescues the Twitcher mouse, and widespread deletion of GALCLAMP1 recapitulates the Twitcher phenotype. We demonstrate the utility of this model by deleting GALCLAMP1 specifically in myelinating Schwann cells in order to characterize the peripheral neuropathy seen in Krabbe disease.

Cordillerans urged to pursue real autonomy

 Cache   

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet -- The quest for Cordillera Autonomy should be pushed by the people from the region, a National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) official said.

Thirty-three years since the creation of Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) by former President Corazon Aquino on 1987, the quest for autonomy should come within the people of Cordillera, NCIP commissioner for Ilocos Region and Cordillera Gaspar Cayat said.

“While it is true that president, our leaders support struggle it should come from the within, come from the mass, it should not come by dictation by other national leaders for us to have an autonomous government it should be our desire for self-determination. If they will support well and good but they should feel the pressure from within the people of Cordillera,” Cayat added.

During the celebration of the Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA), he cited Section 14 of the law mandating their office to aid the congressman and the different IP groups in CAR to push for autonomy in the Cordillera.

He added prior to the creation of the CAR, Executive Order 220 also created temporary bodies; the Cordillera Executive Board, Cordillera Regional Assembly, Cordillera Bodong Administration to help prepare the region to autonomy.

“The foundation of autonomy are the four bundles of rights - Rights to Ancestral Domains and lands, Self-governance and empowerment, Social justice and human rights and Cultural integrity,” he added.

Ibaloy elder Peter Cosalan added the Cordilleras are still fighting for autonomy.

“The Cordilleras which is dominantly IP region has been declared as an autonomous region according to constitution, except we in the Cordilleras have not yet accepted the charter which defines our procedures and governmental procedures,” Cosalan said adding basic powers of autonomy is the right to legislate over ancestral domain.

Cordillera region is composed of six provinces namely Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Mountain Province including Baguio City.

Another draft by regional elders creating Cordillera Autonomous is being pushed after two previous organic acts were rejected.

The 1986 Philippine Constitution allows for the establishment of two autonomous regions in the Philippines, the Muslim Mindanao and in the Cordilleras.

Gender Non-conformity and Depression

 Cache   

The title tells the story. Scientists from Drexel University Medical School have assessed this issue:Does Gender Nonconforming Behavior in Early Childhood Predict Adolescents’ Depressive Symptoms?

It was authored by David S. Bennett, Eileen Borczon, and Michael Lewis.

Psypost has the story:

“Our findings indicate that children who exhibit gender nonconforming behaviors (e.g., boys playing with dolls, girls playing with trucks) in early childhood as rated by mothers appear to be at increased risk for depressive symptoms during adolescence,” Bennett told PsyPost.

It’s not the first time gender nonconformity has been linked to depression. A previous study of 6,082 high school students, published in JAMA Pediatrics in 2018, found that gender nonconformity was associated with mental distress.

Another study of 10,655 individuals found that gender nonconformity in childhood was a “strong predictor” of depressive symptoms across adolescence and early adulthood. That study, which was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 2013, also found that elevated levels of physical and emotional bullying and abuse in children who were nonconforming accounted for much of the increased risk.

Now, the question is, why is this so? Well, the scientists believe that children who cross-identify their genders are subject to bullying and abuse. Their peers are to blame. In truth, we might also say that a child that cannot decide whether it is a male or female cannot have a real place in an organized social group. Thus, the child will be marginalized, rejected from the group. This produces depression.

Because there is nothing wrong with a child exploring its gender by cross dressing or playing with toys that are normally associated with the other sex:

“As such, children who exhibit gender nonconforming behaviors may benefit from having parents who are accepting of their behaviors and professionals (e.g., teachers and healthcare providers) who are both accepting and knowledgeable regarding how to facilitate healthy adjustment among youth who exhibit gender nonconforming behaviors,” Bennett told PsyPost

But then, we can also ask ourselves whether these children have been encouraged by their “woke” parents to engage in gender non-conforming behaviors. Dr. Bennett was suggesting that the children adopt these behaviors independently and autonomously. And that parents do not accept it willingly. But, what if the opposite is true? What if parents buy boys dolls and oblige girls to play with trucks? And then, we ought also to distinguish between children who will grow up to cross dress and children who will become convinced that they really belong to the opposite sex.

Perhaps the outsiders, other children on the playground, are seeing things more clearly than are the parents and the woke professionals? They see that something is wrong, that something is off kilter. Being children, they express their feelings openly and honestly. Of course, if you really believe that we can be whatever gender we want to be, then you are obliged to deny biology and to take control of the minds of other people, beginning with children. 

The level of mind control required to make these children feel good about themselves will never really come to pass-- because it denies reality. It’s like saying that a man who decides that he is a woman will feel much better if only the world entire will blind itself to the obvious physical characteristics that show the person to be in severe denial.

Responding to the Hong Kong protests

 Cache   

By Mike Poteet

A controversial tweet

In early October, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted a simple image that read “Fight for Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong.” This tweet, which would seem innocuous to many in the United States, drew immediate and sustained backlash from both Chinese officials and businesses due to the complicated, contentious relationship between China and Hong Kong, a semiautonomous territory that, unlike mainland China, operates as a limited democracy with a capitalist economy.

According to the Associated Press, the Chinese consulate in Houston expressed “strong dissatisfaction” with the team following Morey’s tweet; and both Chinese state television and Tencent, a streaming media company with whom the NBA recently signed a $1.5 billion deal, announced they wouldn’t show Rockets games.

Yet the protests that have taken place in Hong Kong this summer and fall hold far more significance than the relationship between the NBA and China. That they should have any impact at all on something as far afield as pro sports only underscores their significance and the serious political crisis they represent. 

Months of protest

According to a New York Times article from last June, the protests initially arose in opposition to a bill considered by Hong Kong’s legislative body, the Legislative Council. The bill would have allowed the territory to extradite criminal suspects to jurisdictions with which it has no formal extradition treaty, including mainland China.

Observers warned that the Chinese government could use the bill to exert increased pressure on Hong Kong. “If enacted, this law would extend the ability of the Mainland authorities to target critics, human rights activists, journalist[s], NGO workers and anyone else in Hong Kong, much in the same way they do at home,” stated Man-Kei Tam, director of Amnesty International Hong Kong.

On June 9, more than a million people marched in opposition to the bill — nearly one of every seven Hong Kongers and the biggest public protest Hong Kong had seen since the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement of 2014. A New York Times video shows that police used tear gas against protesters on June 12, along with pepper spray, rubber bullets and batons, after a small number of protesters threw objects at them. Anger over the police response inspired even larger protests on June 16, when as many as two million people came together in the largest protest in Hong Kong’s history.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s Beijing-appointed chief executive, withdrew the extradition bill in early September, but the withdrawal wasn’t enough to bring protests to an end. One commonly heard chant — “Five demands, not one less” — refers to the protesters’ aims. The first was the withdrawal of the extradition bill; the others include (1) no more descriptions of the protests as “riots,” (2) unconditional release and amnesty for arrested protesters, (3) independent inquiry into police behavior, and (4) full and genuine democracy.

Throughout the summer and into autumn, protests continued and were increasingly marked by violent confrontations between demonstrators and police. On October 1 — a holiday that marked the 70th anniversary of the Communist state founded in 1949 — police shot a protester with live ammunition for the first time.

CNBC reported that on October 4, Lam invoked emergency powers and banned face masks at all public gatherings, claiming the move would deter violence because demonstrators cannot conceal their identities. (Many protesters wear masks and respirators to guard against tear gas.) The ban provoked a fresh wave of fiery protests. Lam’s critics worry what further actions might follow and how those actions might weaken Hong Kong’s special status, which they believe China has been steadily eroding. 

Mixed U.S. responses

In mid-October, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. It would require the State Department to certify every year “whether Hong Kong remains sufficiently autonomous from Beijing [China] to justify its unique treatment,” as quoted in The Washington Post. This unique treatment includes exemptions from tariffs and other U.S. laws that apply to all other Chinese exports. If the bill clears the Senate, where it has bipartisan support, it would need President Trump’s signature to become law.

Publicly, Trump hasn’t spoken much about the protests, but the Financial Times reports that he promised Chinese president Xi Jinping that the United States would “tone down criticism of Beijing’s approach” in order to revive trade talks. However, at the United Nations in September, Trump called on China to honor its commitment to “protect Hong Kong’s freedom, legal system and democratic ways of life,” adding, “We are all counting on President Xi as a great leader,” as quoted in Vox.

Some American businesses find themselves caught between democratic ideals and the pursuit of profit. The NBA, for instance, forced Daryl Morey to apologize for his tweet, then issued its own apology while simultaneously trying to defend free speech, a response that pleased neither Chinese officials nor many US observers. Meanwhile, Apple pulled a map app from its digital store that protesters had been using to track police movement, and shoe company Vans pulled the top vote-getter in a sneaker design competition because the design depicted the protests. 

Christian response

“The Chinese Communist Party may be the greatest existential threat to the Hong Kong church,” notes Christianity Today. Nevertheless, about 900,000 Hong Kongers (almost 12%) are Christian, and Christians enjoy more freedom in Hong Kong than believers in mainland China.

Several church organizations in Hong Kong expressed concern about the extradition bill while calling for restraint and peace from protesters. According to a United Methodist News Service article, the ecumenical Hong Kong Christian Council issued a statement urging the reopening of now-closed public spaces for peaceful demonstration, restraint from using force on the part of police, and dialogue and “rational discussion” between the government and protesters.

Many Christians in Hong Kong have joined the protests themselves. In late August, the first large-scale rally specifically for Christians drew thousands. Its motto was “Salt and light, for justice we walk together.” Attendees formed part of a human chain stretching for more than 21 miles and sang the hymn “Sing Alleluia to the Lord,” which quickly became an unofficial “anthem” for the Hong Kong protests — partly because religious gatherings are exempt from Hong Kong legislation regulating public assemblies.

For believers who choose to participate in the protests, taking to the streets to defend their civil liberties and advocate for greater freedom is an expression of how they understand the gospel. Andrea Wong, an 18-year-old protester, told The New York Times, “I am very certain that Jesus would not have stayed home enjoying the air-conditioning. He would have been out here helping people and marching.”

An Indonesian lawmaker who helped write strict anti-adultery laws in a semi-autonomous region of the country recieved 28 lashes after he was caught committing adultery himself.

The man, Mukhlis bin Muhammad, worked for the Aceh Ulema Council (MPU,) the Islamic lawmaking body in Aceh, a semi-autonomous region of Sumatra, Indonesia's largest island.

The charlatan was busted by Aceh religious police in a car with a married woman near a tourist beach in September, BBC Indonesia reported.

He was flogged in public on Thursday, as was the woman, who was not named. The woman recieved 23 lashes.

"This is God's law. Anyone must be flogged if proven guilty, even if he is a member of the MPU," Husaini Wahab, the deputy mayor of Aceh Besar, told BBC Indonesia.

Aceh has used Shariah law, a strict interpretation of legal guidelines laid out in the Qu'ran, since 2005.

Homosexuality is illegal in Aceh, as is gambling, sex before marriage, adultery, and alcohol in any form.

Blog Post: Russian startup sells robot clones of real people

 Cache   
A Russian startup is selling autonomous robots, which buyers can choose to make look like any person on Earth. "Everyone will now be able to order a robot with any appearance — for professional or personal use. Thus, we open a huge market in service, education and entertainment. Imagine a replica of Michael Jordan selling basketball uniforms and William Shakespeare reading his own texts in a museum?" said Aleksei Iuzhakov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Promobot, in a statement. The company's Robo-C has a neck and torso that each have three degrees of freedom of movement, but it cannot walk. Will robots like this eventually replace human workers? (Promobot). The robot's face has 18 moving parts, allowing it to make 600 "micro-expressions," and its artificial intelligence contains 100,000 speech modules. "Promobot believes that a robot like this is capable of removing the barrier in human-machine interaction and replacing a number of employees in crowded places– post offices, banks, and municipal institutions," the company states in a press release. However, the android -- which Promobot calls a "completely anthropomorphic machine," only has 8 hours of battery life. foxnews.com

Newly released documents show the grueling life of an Uber self-driving car-tester who goes to bed at 5 a.m. each morning (UBER)

uber arizona self driving car crash

On the day before Uber's self-driving car hit and killed a pedestrian in Arizona, the test driver went to sleep at 5 a.m.

The next day, March 18, Rafaela Vasquez arrived at Uber's autonomous driving headquarters in Mesa, Arizona, at 7:30 p.m., ready to begin an eight-hour shift behind the wheel collecting data and monitoring the car's software as it drove in repetitive loops.

But less than three hours later, the 44-year-old's shift would be cut short after the Volvo SUV hit and killed 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg as she walked her bicycle across the street.

That reconstructed schedule was revealed in documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board on Tuesday as part of the agency's investigation into the crash. They reveal previously undisclosed details about the inner workings of Uber's highly secretive "Advanced Technologies Group," which is building, testing, and deploying self-driving cars to eventually work within the Uber ride-hailing network.

Uber ATG shifts ArizonaIn Arizona, 254 drivers operated a fleet of 40 heavily-modified Volvo XC90 SUVs under the direction of a site manager and 16 flight managers or supervisors, NTSB documents say. The vehicle operators are divided into 10 team shifts, many of which are during the overnight hours.

Vasquez, the driver behind the wheel the night of Herzberg's death, usually worked the "Juliet" shift, from 4 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. from Friday to Monday. According to her interview with investigators, she had previously worked as an Uber driver, as well as a mystery shopper and a content moderator.

However, the day of the crash, Vasquez had requested to start later in order to visit her father in Tucson, about an 80-minute drive away, she told investigators. In order to cope with long shifts and overnight hours, drivers are required to take a 20-40 minute break after a maximum of four hours driving, documents say, and the company also recommends breaks every two hours.

"Ms. Vasquez does not know why the vehicle did not respond to the pedestrian," the interviewer wrote. "When asked if the vehicle usually identifies and responds to pedestrians, the VO stated that usually, the vehicle was overly sensitive to pedestrians. Sometimes the vehicle would swerve towards a bicycle, but it would always react in some way."

Following the crash, Uber suspended all self-driving testing and only resumed in December in Pennsylvania with new software that featured more restrictions and safeguards.

In its preliminary report in March, the NTSB found that the driver was watching an episode of "The Voice" on an iPad, and that the crash was "entirely avoidable." Prosecutors said Uber was not criminally liable in the crash.

In a statement Tuesday, Uber said it's fully cooperating with the NTSB and looks forward to the agency's decision.

"We regret the March 2018 crash involving one of our self-driving vehicles that took Elaine Herzberg's life," a representative said. "In the wake of this tragedy, the team at Uber ATG has adopted critical program improvements to further prioritize safety. We deeply value the thoroughness of the NTSB's investigation into the crash and look forward to reviewing their recommendations once issued after the NTSB's board meeting later this month."

Other revelations from the trove of new documents show that Uber's cars were involved in 37 crashes in the 18 months prior to the fatal Arizona crash. The NTSB's findings may be used to assess the industry at large, including advice to regulators about how to best oversee the nascent technology.

An NTSB hearing is set for November 19 to determine the probable cause of the Arizona accident.

Feminist autonomous infrastructures

Introduction

Women, feminists, and gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, queer and intersex (GLBTQI) individuals share common experiences online: they can easily become targets of online harassment, discrimination or censorship, be it by government, private actors or corporations. When trying to understand the relationship between gender, violence and technology, one should keep in mind that online violence is intrinsically linked with real-life situations. When bigotry, sexism and homophobic attitudes exist in societies, they will almost inevitably be amplified in the online world.

”Real” name policies, data mining, tracking and surveillance technologies have become so intertwined that the days when no one knew if you were a dog or a cyborg on the internet are largely over. In fact, the creation of an industry around the profiling of users, coupled with the centralisation and contraction of the internet, have led to a situation where it is not a safe space (if it ever was). In 1996 the Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace announced the creation of “a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.” 1 But nowadays it is too common to see the work and voices of women, feminists and GLBTQI being deleted, censored and/or prevented from being seen, heard or read. Much of this gender-based online violence happens on corporate social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and the blogosphere, in addition to other non-profit online spaces such as Wikipedia. All of them involve large communities, which are led by a set of practices and policies. Despite the existence of certain rules that govern these spaces and because of certain practices, silencing, intimidation and/or discrimination continues. So far, responses from GLBTQI to violence have involved organised public shaming, doxxing of harassers, 2 feminist counter-speech, active research and documentation, awareness raising around privacy and security, advocacy for amendments to corporate terms of service, and lobbying of institutions contributing to the governance of the internet, among others. While these tactics are paramount to the embodiment of everyday forms of online resistance,3 there is also a need to think about adopting strategies that are not only reactive, but also project us into the future we want. In other words, it is about dreaming and pre-figuring our technologies actively. Proactive practices involve understanding what it means to take back the command and control of technologies by using, creating and maintaining our own ones and shaping our communication and technological infrastructures. Using corporate services such as Facebook or Twitter may be very convenient, and at times strategic because they are generally provided for free and because this is where the so-called critical masses are. But using them also means accepting their terms of service, which are primarily shaped by profit, and in which human rights and gender social justice still remain of negligible importance. When using these online services, we and our networks are at their mercy, which means we can not fully control our data, social networks and historical memories (or traces) on the internet. While the future of the internet often looks bleak, it is paramount to not only continue to investigate into the processes and governance structure of the internet, but to continue to build a communication and technological ecology that puts human well-being front and centre, rather than profit. What will happen when big data has its proper algorithms? What will be the combined relationships between these algorithms and the Facebook project internet.org or the “Internet of Things”, to name only two of the upcoming situations that will again redefine people's rights to privacy and free expression? When our data remains under corporate control, they can be sold or given to third parties to exploit, or they can be deleted or shut down. Ultimately, they become our digital shadows, 4 enabling others to track, profile and control our voices, opinions and expressions. Part of the answer lies in developing, supporting and using not-for-profit, independent, privacy-aware and secure alternatives to corporate online services. Collectives such as Riseup, Nadir and Autistici/Inventati have been powered by hacktivist collectives for almost two decades now.5 They have provided – through volunteer work and community contributions – valuable and basic online services such as email, mailing list servers, wikis, pads,6 blogs and virtual private networks (VPN)7 to activists all around the world. But where are the feminist tech collectives that design and maintain feminist autonomous infrastructures for feminists, queer and trans* people and activists at large? We also need to ask ourselves, why are those feminist tech collectives still so embryonic? And what does this tell us about the discrimination and violence happening when women and feminists do not control, own and manage the technological infrastructure they need to express themselves and act online?

Shaping autonomy within our technologies

One of the main constitutive elements of feminist autonomous infrastructures lies in the concept of self-organisation already practised by many social movements that understand the question of autonomy as a desire for freedom, self-valorisation and mutual aid. In addition, we understand the term technological infrastructure in an expansive way, encompassing hardware, software and applications, but also participatory design, safe spaces and social solidarities. Concrete examples of feminist autonomous infrastructures include the Geek Feminism Wiki, 8 developing specific technologies that tackle gender-based online violence, such as bots against trolls, and building feminist online libraries and feminist servers, but also enabling offline safe spaces such as feminist hackerspaces which allow feminist, queer and trans* hackers, makers and geeks to gather and learn with others.

When talking about these examples of feminist autonomous infrastructures, we recognise that none of them can be fully autonomous, but rather relative in their autonomy, as they still depend, for instance, on already existing communication networks and technologies designed by mainstream companies (such as computers, servers and access devices). Having said that, their autonomy is based on different governance models, the values they embrace and the principles they promote. If feminist autonomous infrastructures are diverse in scope and in shape, they do share in common a desire to proactively create the conditions for their autonomy while following an ethic of care9 which is embedded into the active practice of social solidarities. Caring and recognising the importance of such infrastructures are two aspects that are central to attempt to address the cycle of technology that is rife with inequality from the production of technology, to its access, uptake, development and governance, until its end cycle. This intersectional and integrated approach to technology goes hand in hand with a feminist posture that does not shy away from addressing all forms of violence, whether it be online violence or the violence that is intrinsic in resource extraction or the factory and assembly line work that is gendered and raced. 10

Recently, momentum has gathered around the building of feminist autonomous infrastructures. These initiatives are still in their embryonic stage, mainly representing a set of scattered and fragmented initiatives. Below we highlight two different examples – one addressing the need for physical safe spaces enabling women and feminists to gather and uplift their skills, and another addressing the slow-politics around the creation of feminist servers.

Breaking the circle of isolation by learning together

The Gender and Technology Institute11 was organised by the Tactical Technology Collective and the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) at the end of 2014. The event brought together almost 80 participants and facilitators, mostly from the global South, to focus on some of the issues faced daily by women and trans* persons on the internet, to share strategies and tools for better protecting our privacy and security online, and to discuss how to spread knowledge and skills in our communities and organisations. Since then, the network has expanded, with different outcomes ranging from the creation of a collaborative online space enabling the documentation of the activities around privacy and digital security delivered by its members on the ground, to the production of a manual specifically addressing gender-related issues which also offers various strategies and tools for taking control of our online identities and learning how to shape safe spaces.

All these outcomes are informed by the stories and creative practices of women and feminist grassroots activists, located in 22 different countries, who are actively and creatively using and making technology to tackle gender-based online violence. Meanwhile they become digital security trainers, and privacy advocates, and they are helping others to understand how they can adopt safer and more joyful practices when engaging online and offline.

Eight months after its realisation, the Gender and Technology Institute has become an international informal network of support, a friendly resource space based on social solidarities that helps to break the circle of isolation.12 This contributes to strengthening the technological autonomy of its participants and, by extension, women, feminists and GLBTQI individuals and organisations, in order to face the challenges and threats derivative of their use of the internet.

Feminist servers

A server can be defined as a computer connected to a network that provides services such as hosting files, websites and online services. Because all online resources are hosted on servers, they constitute a base for the internet as we know it. All servers are ruled by different terms of service, governance models and national legislation in relation to privacy and access to data by third actor parties (or "trackers") and are dependent on a variety of business models. This somewhat technical definition can obscure the possibilities for understanding the political aspect behind the setting up and management of a server. In that sense, what would be the purposes13 and principles 14 of a feminist server? Can feminist servers support women, feminists and GLBTQI in their fight for having their rights such as freedom of expression and opinion respected? Can we create trust among us to develop cooperative approaches to the management of those spaces of resistance and transformation? These were more or less the questions that a group of people interested in gender asked themselves during the first Feminist Server Summit 15 in December 2013 and at the first TransHackFeminist (THF!) Convergence 16 held in August 2014. The discussions that emerged out of those meetings recognised that we do not yet have feminist tech collectives that design feminist autonomous infrastructures for the feminist, queer and trans* movement(s) and that this should become a priority. 17

For example, two feminist servers that were dormant re-emerged during the THF! Convergence:

  • The Systerserver project, which was originally launched in early 2000 by the Genderchangers 18 and the Eclectic Tech Carnival (/etc), and focuses on hosting online services such as etherpads and a voice over internet protocol (VoIP) application.

  • The Anarcha server,19 started by the TransHackFeminists from Calafou, an eco-industrial post-capitalist colony located in Catalonia. It hosts a mediawiki, a WordPress farm and a media publishing platform.

These feminist servers are composed by a loose coalition of women, queer and trans* from around the world, with some explicitly interested in hacking heteronormativity and patriarchy. They are also about demonstrating that it is possible to create safe spaces where the harassment of women, feminists and GLBTQI is not allowed and where all can learn about technology in a non-hierarchal and non-meritocratic way. However, even if these server initiatives are inspiring to many, they still remain at the embryonic stage. Moreover, they do not consider themselves service providers; neither have they clearly decided to become stable and sustainable tech collectives providing hosting and online services to women, feminists and GLBTQI groups. In any case, they show that feminist servers are possible and that they should become a political aim for any organisations working in the field of gender social justice and GLBTQI rights – which should be concerned about achieving autonomy in communication and technological infrastructures, in addition to securing their data, social networks and historical memories on the web.

Conclusion

The targeting, silencing and censorship of women, feminists and GLBTQI people online has been and is being challenged in multiple ways. Women, feminists and GLBTQI people have been particularly creative in their everyday forms of resistance and their solidarities and care towards one another. While the initiatives outlined above are exciting, they do remain at an embryonic stage where only a few are able to participate. The reasons why so few initiatives exist ought to be at the core of a feminist analysis to understand how gendered technology actually is. Who is encouraged at a young age to tinker with technology? What kind of division of labour exists when it comes to technology? Why is the level of attrition so high for women in the tech industry?

While seriously considering the above, it remains that if we want to see the Feminist Principles of the Internet as formulated by APC become a reality, we need our own feminist autonomous infrastructures. To do so, we need to have feminist tech collectives that focus on providing these services. We need to be active in developing our expertise and that of the younger generation. But for that to happen we need the feminist and GLBTQI movement(s) to pay more attention to these issues, create more safe spaces to learn collectively, stop fearing technologies and decide collectively that we need to change gears to reshape our own communication and technological infrastructure. After all, freedom of expression is part of the feminist struggle and women, feminists and GLBTQI people can contribute by providing collectively the knowledge and means to ensure that their right to speak up remains accessible online, offline, and wherever and in any format where expression emerges.

Aston Martin's First Motorcycle Looks Futuristic as Hell

 Cache   
Aston Martin Revealed Its First Motorcycle, the AMB 001

Aston Martin is a name which inspires images of class, elegance, and luxury. Oh, and of course, James Bond. Now the brand famously featured in so many episodes of the British spy-thriller series, has a motorcycle. And it’s everything futuristic and luxurious you might expect.

RELATED: Riding Motorcycles May Make You More Focused and Reduce Stress

Aston Martin has collabed with Brough Superior create its very first motorcycle, the AMB 001. This bike blends the extremely rich finery that the manufacturer has always been known for with a futuristic, nearly anime-inspired aesthetic with the engineering of Brough Superior.

It's not just a fancy bike, either. The classic sensibility of Aston Martin is evident from the get-go, according to recently released photos, with the seat — or “saddle” as the manufacturers prefer — being made from hand-stitched Oxford Tan leather. Matching handlebars in a chestnut hue help to offset an unusual color scheme, while a smooth carbon fiber, titanium, and billet aluminum exterior look swanky (and super sci-fi).

Matte black wheels, forks, and brake assemblings bring a bit of understated strength to the otherwise flashy as f*ck look, and the “Sterling Green” and “Lime Essence” colorways are carried out to the same standard of excellence one would expect.

Looks are one thing, though. There's a reason you can't take the AMB 001 out on the road. The bike is track-legal only, meaning you won't be spinning the tires to pick up a pack of smokes and a few scratch tickets at the corner store any time soon. A turbocharged 180 horsepower V-twin engine is partially responsible for this restriction, though the six-figure price tag likely means that whoever picks up one of these bad boys won't mind taking it to the speedway for a bit of harmless fun.

And the price? Nearly $120,000, so start saving up your nickels and dimes if you want to take a spin on this two-wheeled bit of British ingenuity. But don’t drag your feet because only 100 of the AMB 001s are slated to roll off the assembly line—you’ll need to get your pre-orders in fast if you're serious about taking home a bit of automotive history.

“This is what we believe a cutting-edge motorcycle should be and we are very proud to see the Aston Martin wings on a motorcycle for the first time,” Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman said in a statement. “In addition to applying the skills we have developed for cars such as the groundbreaking Aston Martin Valkyrie we have also been able to bring our special expertise in the traditional craft techniques to this project. The finished product is a truly beautiful motorcycle; a design and engineering work of art.”

It's hard to argue with such powerful words, especially given Aston Martin and Brough Superior’s track record of engineering excellence and stylistic success. Bringing Aston Martin into the world of luxury motorcycles is one thing — doing so with such a degree of exclusivity and effectiveness is another entirely.

Turkey’s green light in Syria now flashing yellow

 Cache   

Turkey’s green light in Syria now flashing yellow

Components

The initial rise in President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s popularity that greeted Turkey’s success in securing a green light from Donald Trump to attack the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria quickly transformed into cautious negotiations with other actors in Syria. 

Faced with economic sanctions that Turkey, and his political position, could not endure, Erdoğan agreed to a pause in the assault on the People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces to allow them to withdraw from the 32 km safety zone along the Syrian border with Turkey.

Subsequently, Erdoğan had to accommodate his ambitions to the agenda of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, and by extension, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s goal to re-establish his control of the entire country.   And we can expect Iran to assist Assad in that and encourage a reconciliation of the YPG/SDF with Assad’s regime.  And though promised to depart, U.S. forces remains in northeast Syria with a mandate to secure potentially lucrative oil fields.

Military operations are expensive, and though the use of irregular militias reduces the casualties Turkey might face, the financial burden is not eased much by their use.  At the same time, foreign investors are still holding back on investing in Turkey, seen by many as less financially stable following the incursion into northern Syria than before.  The Turkish people overwhelmingly support Erdoğan’s efforts against the YPG, but the political gains may be fleeting if the economy does not show signs of improvement soon.  Also, by claiming success against the YPG, Erdoğan opens himself to a call from his opponents to focus on domestic economic issues now that he’s handled the terrorist abroad.

Economic growth will be hard to come by, in part due to the threat of sanctions.  Even if the U.S. Congress does not proceed with sanctions, either because the Senate under Mitch McConnell’s leadership won’t vote on sanctions or because President Trump blocks their implementation, the potential for sanctions will make foreign investors and domestic business hesitant to undertake new projects.  Business investors like predictability, and in U.S.-Turkey relations, that is in short supply.

There are other concerns as well.  The lopsided vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on an Armenian Genocide resolution, 405-11, shows that Turkey, or at least Erdoğan, has few friends remaining in the U.S. Congress.  The apparent lack of coordination with Turkey in tracking down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, even though he was only 5 kilometres from the Turkish border, raises doubts about the degree to which the U.S. and Turkish militaries trust each other.  Among policy makers, some suspect, without evidence, that Turkey was at least aware of Baghdadi’s location, if not actively protecting him, much like suspicions some U.S. officials had about Pakistani military intelligence personnel protecting Osama bin Laden given his location near Pakistan’s military academy.  Such suspicions, speculation without evidence or merit, are corrosive in the relations between two nations. 

In response to the Baghdadi raid, Erdoğan recently hinted that Turkey could pursue terrorists in foreign countries and assassinate them, as the Americans did.  This ignores the fact that Erdoğan alone names those opponents as terrorists while Baghdadi was labelled a terrorist by every nation in the world.  To suggest that hunting down a vile murderer is akin to sending assassination squads after political opponents living abroad may play well with his most ardent supporters, but no reasonable person sees them as comparable in any way.  Any such, action undertaken in the U.S. would be destructive to what remains of positive U.S.-Turkish relations.

Turkey’s burgeoning partnership with Russia also calls for caution.  Turkey may engage in joint patrols with Russian forces in some border areas, but the anti-Assad militia fighters it uses as ground forces have already clashed with regime forces. 

Assad’s forces would certainly like to eliminate the opposition fighters that Turkey is using, and they for their part would like to re-ignite their actions against the Syrian regime. So Turkey now finds itself depending on Russia to work with it to secure its southern border as it had previously worked with the U.S. to restrain the SDF/YPG.  For how long the various sides can be held back from avenging themselves on others remains to be seen.

The YPG/PYD has already reached an accommodation of sorts with Assad’s regime. They know that plans for a semi-autonomous Kurdish enclave within northern Syria are dead, for now.  However, they to for Assad to use them as a counterweight against the anti-regime militias now supported by Turkey.  How they will operate against Turkish forces and its allied militias, as the U.S. would not allow, remains an open question.

Overhanging all of this is President Erdoğan’s commitment to return one million or more Syrian refugees from Turkey to Syria.  But to do so, he will need the agreement or at least acquiescence of the different factions and actors in northern Syria, as well as that of the refugees themselves.  Of course, he could try to force them back into Syria, but that would only intensify the denunciations of his policies by European, Arab (excepting Qatar), and North American politicians, and further reduce willingness for their nationals to invest in Turkey.

In sum, just as the death of Baghdadi does not solve the problem of ISIS, the green light from Trump to Erdoğan (better seen as the removal of multiple stop signs) does not signal an easy path forward for Turkey in Syria.  Without the U.S. as its partner, Turkey will increasingly enjoy the gentle and warm embrace of a partnership with Putin’s Russia.  Given all the curves in the road and the competing vehicles on the road, Erdoğan must proceed with caution to avoid a crash.

It doesn’t need COOLING SYSTEM, it doesn’t use the FUEL but some lubricant, it doesn’t need any FILTERS and it is able to work “openly” underground, underwater, in GASEOUS ATMOSPHERE and in the OPEN SPACE. It is reversible, can work without transmission.
It’s a COLD MECHANISM which doesn’t need heating and then COOLING. Neither heat of deserts nor the Antarctic cold can hinder it’s work.
It’s production is not expensive, it is simple in operation. Any transportation (AUTO, AIR, SHIP’S, RAILWAY and other) will become profitable with this mechanism. It can not only compete with electric stations, atomic included but to give them odds. Neither the earthquakes nor other natural calamities frighten it. This is IDEAL for (ELECTRO-GENERATOR, BUS, TRUCK, SUV & VAN, HELICOPTER, DIRIGIBLE, EKRANOPLAN, UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE, JET PACK, HOVERCRAFT, AMPHIBIAN, SUBMARINE, REFRIGERATOR, RAILWAY, METRO, RAILGUN, LASER, DESALTER OF SEA WATER, OPEN SPACE,SMOG…).
It can save the WORLD CIVILIZATION from the GLOBAL increasing of the temperature (HOTBED EFFECT, FLOODS, WATERSPOUTS…); oil pollution; energetic crisis; industrial breakdown; toxic gas ejection (CO, NO, CH); further destroying of the Ozone laver of the Earth; progressing AIDS (during the temperature increasing and organism dehydrating), and also diseases cancer.

However much it might yearn for a new tank, the Army lacks the critical technologies that would justify the time and expense pursuing such an objective. Moreover, it doesn’t need to make the effort. The Army’s current main battle tank, the Abrams, is the tank of the future.

The Army is just beginning to receive the first of the latest Abrams upgrade, the System Enhancement Package Version 3 (SEPv3), with additional upgrades in development. Instead of searching for the elusive Holy Grail of ultralight armor or laser weapons, technologies that would justify building a brand new tank, the Army would be best served by aggressively pursuing a major redesign and improvement program for the Abrams, an M1A3.

The leadership of the U.S. Army is taken with the idea of transforming how and with what the Army fights. They particularly want new armored fighting vehicles. And not just another family of metal boxes with a turret and cannon. Technology enthusiasts, including many in the Army’s new Futures Command, wax eloquently about the potential for hover tanks that shoot laser beams and are autonomously guided by artificial intelligence housed in quantum computers.

Brigadier Gen. Ross Coffman, the leader of the Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross Functional Team (CFT) responsible for the Bradley replacement and a future tank, is determined to think outside the box regarding what a future tank might look like and the capabilities it might incorporate. According to General Coffman, it might not be a tank. The CFT has been thinking about “everything from a ray gun to a Star Wars-like four-legged creature that shoots lasers. But the reality is that everything is on the table. We have to get away from these paradigms that we created that decisive lethality must come from a tank.”

Meet the Spice-250 Bomb: Israel's Smart Weapon That Can Choose Its Own Targets

A great idea or the Terminator in waiting?

Key point: Letting a weapon choose its own targets means it could make a mistake to disastrous results.

An Israeli company has unveiled a smart bomb that is truly smart.

The SPICE-250 glide bomb has the ability to autonomously recognize and select targets. But how safe is a bomb that can pick its own targets?

Israeli manufacturer Rafael calls this Automatic Target Recognition, which relies on electro-optic sensors (which process light into sensor data) and Artificial Intelligence. “The newly-unveiled ATR feature is a technological breakthrough, enabling SPICE-250 to effectively learn the specific target characteristics ahead of the strike, using advanced AI and deep-learning technologies,” according to a Rafael announcement. “During flight, the pilot selects the target type to be attacked and allocates a target to each weapon. The weapons are launched towards the vicinity of the targets, using their INS [inertial navigation] for initial navigation. When approaching the target area, the weapons use the ATR mode for detection and recognition of the targets. Each weapon homes-in on the pre-defined target, either autonomously or with a human-in-the-loop, aided by the ATR algorithm.”

The SPICE-250 is a glide bomb with a range of 75 kilometers (47 miles) and armed with a 75-kilogram (165-pound) warhead. A single F-16 can carry sixteen of these weapons.

The SPICE-250 uses terrain data, 3-D models and algorithms to identify targets amid the surrounding clutter of objects and terrain in the kill zone, Rafael deputy marketing manager Gideon Weiss told IT magazine Insight Analytics. A two-way data link and video stream enable a pilot to retarget the weapon until just seconds before impact.

Yet most significant is that if the primary target cannot be hit, the SPICE-250’s AI algorithms can select a secondary target. “This goes into the area of user-defined policies and rules of engagement, and it is up to the users to decide on how to apply the weapon, when and where to use it, and how to define target recognition probabilities and its eventuality,” Weiss said.,

The Battle of Mosul - The Last Great Battle Against Isis

 Cache   
While many of you can recite the great battles of WW I and II and even the Civil War, the more recent battle that have been fought in the Middle East against ISIS are already forgotten. Certainly, the battle for Mosul was one of those

Beyond that, there is the relevance to events taking place today. The battle for Mosul, which helped take down ISIS in 2017, had as a major component, the forces of the autonomous region of Kurdistan. 40,000 Kurds that were part of the joint military effort in a battle every bit as important and as bloody as those of WW II.

Uber Test Vehicles Involved In 37 Crashes Before Fatal Self-Driving Incident

 Cache   
Uber's autonomous test vehicles were involved in 37 crashes in the 18 months before a fatal March 2018 self-driving car accident, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said on Tuesday. Reuters reports: The board said between September 2016 and March 2018, there were 37 crashes of Uber vehicles in autonomous mode at the time, including 33 that involved another vehicle striking test vehicles. In one incident, the test vehicle struck a bent bicycle lane bollard that partially occupied the test vehicle's lane of travel. In another incident, the operator took control to avoid a rapidly approaching oncoming vehicle that entered its lane of travel. The vehicle operator steered away and struck a parked car. The NTSB will hold a probable cause hearing on the crash Nov. 19. A spokeswoman for Uber's self-driving car division said the company has "adopted critical program improvements to further prioritize safety. We deeply value the thoroughness of the NTSB's investigation into the crash and look forward to reviewing their recommendations." Bloomberg is also reporting that Uber's self-driving test car wasn't programmed to recognize and react to jawalkers. The report said "the system design did not include a consideration for jaywalking pedestrians." [Elaine Herzberg, the 49-year-old pedestrian that was struck by one of Uber's self-driving cars] was crossing the road outside of a crosswalk.

An elderly cyclist luckily survived being run over by a truck in southern China. In CCTV video of the scene, filmed in the city of Beihai in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on October 26, a truck knocked down a 78-year-old cyclist after it turned a corner. The cyclist then went under the bottom of the truck as it drove over him. According to the truck driver Yang, since the cyclist was in the truck's blind spot, Yang did not see the old man. After Yang realised what had happened, he helped carry the old man to the side of the road. He then sent the old man to hospital and called the police. The old man suffered fractures to his toes and ribs and was hospitalised. Yang paid the medical costs for the old man's treatment and also hired a nurse to take care of him.

UK highways will go “naked” by 2027 as infrastructure is stripped back

 Cache   

Zenzic, the organisation dedicated to accelerating the self-driving revolution in the UK by uniting industry, government and academia, has revealed that emerging CAM (connected and automated mobility) technologies will eliminate the need for road signage, with UK drivers seeing “naked highways” by 2027. 

Zenzic’s UK Connected and Automated Mobility Roadmap to 2030 reports that from as early as next year, new planning guidance and blueprints for CAM-ready cities, towns, highways and rural roads will look to accommodate CAM services for efficient operations. This will see new highway schemes move away from high cost (£10 million per km of smart motorway) assets in favour of digital infrastructure. 

In addition, improved vehicle connectivity will eliminate the need for new road signage. The physical evolution and decommissioning of signs and signals expected from 2027 will be the first visible indication that new road infrastructure has been deployed, followed by the widespread adoption of in-car signalling (using in-car technology to digitally display speed limits, highway exits, and traffic updates for example) in 2028. 

The transition, development and widespread adoption of digital road infrastructure will be informed by new standards, following agreed models for the digitisation of sign assets, as well as the specification of new safety services. In the next ten years (2029), this will include identifying common approaches to safety and design standards and in the next five years (2024) describe the mapping requirements for digital road infrastructure. 

Having the infrastructure in place to facilitate the development and testing of self-driving technologies and services will be key to unlocking insights that inform these standards and regulations, service design, and technology requirements. 

In order to develop and bring to life the infrastructure that will enable “naked highways”,  mature testing procedures and standards need to be in place. Initiatives such as the highly automated validation capabilities, at sites which are part of Testbed UK, will need to begin by 2025 in order for the wider CAM industry and government to agree on the test and validation methods and standards for safety. 

Daniel Ruiz, CEO at Zenzic said: “We are in a period of dramatic social and economic change. Transport is fundamental to the change and will soon be transformed by the new technologies associated with connectivity and automation, including digital infrastructure that will change the face of the UK’s highways. 

“The “naked highway” concept aims to bring economic benefits in terms of local and national efficiencies, as well as tangible benefits to public mobility including improved safety and better routing through centralised communication with drivers.” 

Roberto Ponticelli, Senior Consultant for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles at HORIBA MIRA said: 
“In order to achieve the concept of a ‘naked highway’ the industry will need to move from component-based testing towards system-based testing; a paradigm shift affecting every level of the value chain in the road transport industry. 

“A collaborative, integrated and coordinated approach to system design, testing, verification and validation that is orchestrated around scenarios meaningful to road users, mobility and infrastructure providers, local authorities, certification bodies and insurers, is at the core of this new paradigm. It will enable us to realise the promises of these new technologies and successfully implement the ‘naked highways’ concept, with all its benefits on traffic management and optimisation, cost of infrastructure, and the associated societal benefits.”
          

DB Schenker deploys autonomous mobile robots as “next-generation supply chain”

 Cache   
DB Schenker has put Gideon Brothers’ autonomous logistics robots into service at its Leipzig, Germany, facility following a successful trial. 

The Gideon Brothers robot is able to move 800kg and is designed to navigate safely around people and equipment, as well as moving other machines. It is also equipped with a visual perception-based robot autonomy system, which integrates machine learning with stereoscopic cameras to create next generation robot visual capabilities.

The robots also feature a hot-swappable battery system, allowing minimum downtime for recharging.

Xavier Garijo, member of the board, contract logistics at Schenker, said: “In our drive to offer strategic advantages for our clients in the increasingly complex digital environment, DB Schenker continuously explores opportunities to integrate innovations from visionary start-up companies.

“Delivering automation possibilities for logistics and warehouse operations is a foundation for building the next-generation supply chain.”

During the pilot, robots automated tasks associated with regular order fulfillment, speeding it up and allowing employees to focus on more complex tasks. A few weeks into the project, DB Schenker expanded the pilot by adding a significant number of new pick-up and drop-off points.

In the first month of the pilot, a typical distance covered by a robot surpassed 26 km per week.

Matija Kopić, chief executive and co-founder of Gideon Brothers, said: “Our machines perceive the world just like we do – by processing visual inputs and understanding what surrounds them and how it relates to their tasks.

“This is a technological leap. Self-driving machines, powered by vision and AI, will succeed where earlier technology failed – it will become ubiquitous in industrial environments. We are incredibly proud to have built a team that has the potential – the vision and expertise – to disrupt material handling in indoor manufacturing and logistics environments.”

Gideon Brothers finalised a second seed financing round earlier this month, raising €2.65 million (£2.3 million), with investors including NJF Capital, whose founder Nicole Junkermann said: “Logistics and intra-logistics have so far seen very little automation as the available technology didn’t offer the level of flexibility most operations need. This is changing.

“Gideon Brothers is one of the few players globally developing – and validating – next-generation autonomy, which places them in a good position to be the company to disrupt material handling.”

DASA awards £2m contracts to counter hostile drone threats

 Cache   

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has announced it has awarded nearly £2m to develop new capabilities to detect, disrupt, and defeat the hostile and malicious use of drones.

Eighteen bids have been funded as part of the Countering Drones competition launched earlier this year by the then-Defence Secretary.

Among the proposal being developed are methods for detecting 4G & 5G controlled drones, cutting edge applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence for sensors to automatically identify UAVs, and low risk methods of stopping drones through novel electronic defeat or interceptor solutions.

The competition, run by DASA – the MOD’s innovation hub – on behalf of Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), is the latest stage in Dstl’s ongoing research programme into countering unmanned air systems (UAS) which has been running for ten years.

The competition has also been supported by the Department for Transport and NATO to counter the rapidly evolving threats from UAS.

David Lugton, competition technical lead, said: "The introduction of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS), often referred to as drones, has been one of the most significant technological advances of recent years and represents a shift in capability of potential adversaries.

"The threat from UAS has evolved rapidly and we are seeing the use of hostile improvised UAS threats in overseas theatres of operation. There is a similar problem in the UK with the malicious or accidental use of drones becoming a security challenge at events, affecting critical infrastructure and public establishments; including prisons and major UK airports."

There was a very high level of interest from industry with over 90 bids from a wide range of organisations from micro businesses, small and medium-sized enterprises, large defence firms and academia.

The Importance of Space and Time for Signal Processing in Neuromorphic Agents: The Challenge of Developing Low-Power, Autonomous Agents That Interact With the Environment

 Cache   
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) and computational neuroscience models have made tremendous progress, enabling us to achieve impressive results in artificial intelligence applications, such as image recognition, natural language processing, and autonomous driving. Despite this, biological neural systems consume orders of magnitude less energy than today's ANNs and are much more flexible and robust. This adaptivity and efficiency gap is partially explained by the computing substrate of biological neural processing systems that is fundamentally different from the way today?s computers are built. Biological systems use in-memory computing elements operating in a massively parallel way rather than time-multiplexed computing units that are reused in a sequential fashion. Moreover, the activity of biological neurons follows continuous-time dynamics in real, physical time instead of operating on discrete temporal cycles abstracted away from real time.

Forest degradation in Mexico's Monarch Reserve decreases by 25.4%

 Cache   
Monarch butterflies in Oyamel pine forests, Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, Mexico. © naturepl.com / Sylvain Cordier / WWFMexico City  Five hectares of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve (MBBR) degraded between March 2018 and March 2019, which represents a decrease of 25.4% in comparison to the 6.7 affected hectares recorded during the 2017-2018 period, according to forest monitoring carried out by the WWF-TELMEX Telcel Foundation Alliance, the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP) and at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) Institute of Biology.
 
Clandestine logging decreased from 1.43 to 0.43 hectares, while losses from forest sanitation also dropped from 1.35 to 0.38 hectares in the same period. The main causes of degradation were drought and tree fall, which affected 4.19 hectares, with a slight increase compared to the previous year, when it registered a toll on a total of 3.93 hectares.
 
Jorge Rickards, WWF-Mexico's General Director, said: "Forest degradation declined because there was no large-scale clandestine logging, nor serious storms like the one that affected the Reserve in 2016. Its core zone has been conserved thanks to the commitment of local and indigenous communities, as well as brigade members, who monitor the forests in exchange for payment for environmental service, while we create options so that the Reserve is a source of life and development for the people.
 
"The main threats to the Monarch in North America are the reduction of the reproductive habitat in the United States, due to the diminution of the milkweed by way of the indiscriminate use of herbicides and land-use changes; forest degradation at Mexican hibernation sites due to historical clandestine logging and tree fall; along with the extreme weather conditions in Canada, Mexico and the United States," Rickards said. 
 
Gloria Tavera Alonso, Regional Director for the Center and Neo-volcanic Axis of the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas, said: "Through the permanent surveillance operation in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve that has gone on with the National Guard since 2016, they have carried out 1,280 tactical actions to reduce illicit environmental activities in the area. Similarly, ongoing attention has been given to forest fires, pests and diseases, with the purpose of maintaining forest ecosystem health in the region."
 
She mentioned the Monarch Butterfly collective seal launched this year, which is made up of women and men from five community groups, in addition to the publication of a product catalog and a website to strengthen the creation of green jobs in the Reserve. "11 adaptation measures were identified through the Climate Change Adaptation Plan to reduce the vulnerability of forests where Monarch butterfly colonies hibernate each year and sustainable livestock projects are currently being developed to reduce impacts on ecosystems," concluded Tavera.
 
During his speech, Víctor Sánchez Cordero, a full-time researcher at the UNAM Institute of Biology, commented: "The first study on changes in forest cover in the Monarch Region was carried out in 1999, as a scientific basis for the establishment of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, while the baseline to monitor the change in forest cover of the core zone of this Protected Natural Area was established in 2003. Periodic monitoring has been implemented since then, in order to provide economic incentives for conservation that the Monarch Fund gives to the owners in the core zone, which is where the priority sites for hibernation of this species in Mexico are located."
 
These actions are part of a conservation strategy created 16 years ago by the WWF-TELMEX Telcel Foundation Alliance and the Mexican Fund for Nature Conservation, in coordination with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, as well as the governments of Michoacán and the State of Mexico, to promote long-term protection of the Monarch Reserve's forests. These benefits add to the CONAFOR environmental hydrological services payments.
 
Sergio Patgher, Telcel's Brand and Social Responsibility Manager, recalled that, from 2003 to date, the Alliance has carried out work to strengthen sustainable forest management such as planting more than 14.9 million trees on 13,501 hectares of the Monarch region, which is a product of 13 community nurseries that create 300 jobs, and the creation of a network of 32 mushroom production centers.
 
The work has contributed to sustainable tourism in the region, as well as educating, training and equipping 39 forest brigades and dozens of service providers, who receive an average of 100,000 people during the hibernation months. All of which was done in close collaboration with CONANP.
 
"Societal involvement is key. That is why, in July 2019, thanks to the support of more than a thousand volunteers from Telcel, WWF and their families from Puebla, Querétaro, Guadalajara, Morelia, León and Mexico City, we planted 15,000 oyamels in the Monarch Butterfly Reserve, as part of the environmental awareness actions carried out by the Alliance," said Patgher.
 
"In addition to the actions to conserve the Reserve, gardens, with native flowers for pollinators, have been planted in Chihuahua, Mérida, Morelia, Hermosillo, Monterrey and Tijuana in order to offer shelter and food to the Monarch during its migration. 1,300 volunteers from Telcel, WWF and their families participated in planting these gardens between August and September 2019," highlighted Patgher.
 
The Reserve offers refuge to 132 bird, 56 mammals, 432 vascular plants and 211 fungi species. The region's basins filter water to the Cutzamala System which is distributed to more than 4.1 million people in Mexico City and its metropolitan area, while oxygen is generated at the same time. This is in addition to the unique experience of observing butterflies during their hibernation.
 
The monitoring results are validated through field verifications by WWF, the UNAM Institute of Biology, the Monarch Fund, the Reserve Directorate, the National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), the Federal Attorney General's Office of Protection for Environment (PROFEPA) and PROBOSQUE personnel, along with community and ejido representatives.
 
The Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve was recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a Natural World Heritage Site that protects 56,259 hectares, 13,551 of which are in the core zone, between Michoacán and the State of Mexico, where priority forests are found in which the Monarch (Danaus plexippus) hibernate, after traveling more than 4 thousand kilometers from Canada and the United States.

Report Suggests Rampant Negligence In Uber Self Driving Car Fatality

 Cache   

Earlier this year you might recall that a self-driving Uber in Tempe, Arizona killed a woman who was trying to cross the street with her bike outside of a crosswalk. The driver wasn't paying attention, and the car itself failed to stop for the jaywalking pedestrian. Initial reporting on the subject, most of it based on anonymous Uber sources who spoke to the paywalled news outlet The Information, strongly pushed the idea that the car's sensors worked as intended and detected the woman, but bugs in the system software failed to properly identify the woman as something to avoid:

"The car’s sensors detected the pedestrian, who was crossing the street with a bicycle, but Uber’s software decided it didn’t need to react right away. That’s a result of how the software was tuned. Like other autonomous vehicle systems, Uber’s software has the ability to ignore “false positives,” or objects in its path that wouldn’t actually be a problem for the vehicle, such as a plastic bag floating over a road. In this case, Uber executives believe the company’s system was tuned so that it reacted less to such objects. But the tuning went too far, and the car didn’t react fast enough, one of these people said."

Thanks to that report, a narrative emerged that the vehicle largely worked as designed, and the only real problem was a modest quirk in uncooked programming.

But a new report by Bloomberg this week shatters that understanding. According to NTSB findings seen by Bloomberg, the vehicle in question wasn't even programmed to detect jaywalkers. Like, at all:

"Uber Technologies Inc.’s self-driving test car that struck and killed a pedestrian last year wasn’t programmed to recognize and react to jaywalkers, according to documents released by U.S. safety investigators."

Assuming Bloomberg's read of the 400 page report (only a part of which has been made public) is accurate, that's a far cry from a bug. The NTSB report found that Uber staff had also disabled Volvo auto-detection and breaking software that could have at least slowed the vehicle if not avoided the pedestrian impact altogether. Investigators also noted that despite the fact that Uber was conducting risky trials on public streets, the company had little to no real system in place for dealing with safety issues. Again, not just underwhelming public safety protocols, but none whatsoever:

"The Uber Advanced Technologies Group unit that was testing self-driving cars on public streets in Tempe didn’t have a standalone safety division, a formal safety plan, standard operating procedures or a manager focused on preventing accidents, according to NTSB."

Again, that's not just buggy or "poorly tuned" software, it's total negligence. Despite the fact the driver was distracted, the car was never adequately programmed to detect jaywalkers, some safety features were disabled, and Uber had little to no safety protocols in place, prosecutors have already absolved Uber of criminal liability (though the driver still may face a lawsuit). The NTSB also hasn't formally affixed blame for the crash (yet):

"The documents painted a picture of safety and design lapses with tragic consequences but didn’t assign a cause for the crash. The safety board is scheduled to do that at a Nov. 19 meeting in Washington."

Self driving cars are remarkably safe, and most accidents involve autonomous vehicles getting confused when people actually follow the law (like rear ending a human-driven vehicle that stopped at a red light before turning right). But that's only true when the people designing and conducting trials are competent. If the NTSB report is anything to go by, Uber fell well short, yet got to enjoy a lot of press suggesting the problem was random bad programming luck, not total negligence and incompetence. Later this month we'll get to see if Uber faces anything resembling accountability for its failures.

State Estimation, Control, And Planning For A Quadrotor Team

 Cache   

Teams of aerial robots have the potential to become effective information gathering instruments, specially in the fields of infrastructure inspection, surveillance, and environmental monitoring due to their ability to operate in environments which may be difficult or impassable for ground robots. This dissertation addresses the problem of developing a team of autonomous quadrotors that can be quickly deployed and controlled by a single human operator.

First, we describe the system design and algorithms for robust single robot autonomy and demonstrate it with experiments in a variety of environments. The developed robot uses onboard cameras for state estimation and is capable of autonomous navigation through natural and man-made environments at high speeds.

Next, we develop the system architecture and components to allow a single operator to deploy, control, and monitor a team of robots.

In order to focus on the multi-robot coordination problem, the robots used for this part utilized GPS for state estimation and required known maps of the environment for obstacle avoidance, which limited the usage of the system to known outdoor environments.

Finally, we combine the robots from the first part with this multi-robot framework. The main challenge here is that due to using onboard sensing for state estimation, each robot has a different reference frame for its state estimates, typically with the origin at the starting pose of the robot while the high-level planner for the team requires all the robot state estimates to be in a common reference frame.

We propose a method that uses the relative position/bearing measurements of nearby robots detected using the onboard camera to solve this problem. The complication in this method is that these relative measurements do not contain any identity information since all the robots in the team are equivalent and look the same. In order to fuse these unlabeled measurements and estimate the states of the robots in a common reference frame, we used the Coupled Probabilistic Data Association Filter (CPDAF) and developed an approximation to reduce its computational complexity enabling online estimation with a team of up to 15 robots.

Rather than selling equipment to its plant and warehouse customers, Honeywell Intelligrated is creating solutions that include a range of technologies. As the name Intelligrated implies, Honeywell is acting like an integrator, by providing a range of equipment and software to solve warehouse, plant, and packaging solutions from concept to operation.

“We’re expanding our smart robotic offerings to provide end-to-end solutions to make work cells more efficient,” Joseph Lui, VP and general manager of robotics, computer vision and AI at Honeywell Intelligrated, told Design News at PackExpo 2019. “We can be a single source for autonomation for our customers. That’s automation with a human touch.”

Lui noted that the use of technology – including voice-guided solutions for workers to increase picking efficiencies and automated mobile robots for transporting items quickly – is just the start of the digital transformation of warehouse and manufacturing operations. “The next 10 years will see a revolution in how these centers work and operate,” said Lui.

Partnering to Build a Collection of Technologies

To accomplish this, Honeywell has brought together the expertise from a range of companies and equipment providers, including software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators. “In the digital technology space, we’re connecting warehouse operations to increase efficiencies by employing advanced solutions that include machine vision, smart robotics, augmented reality, and voice technologies,” said Lui.

As part of the buildout for creating solutions, Honeywell has partnered with Fetch Robotics to provide autonomous mobile robots for effectively fulfilling orders. The robots operate safely alongside human workers to transport items through distribution centers without human guidance or fixed paths. Honeywell is also utilizing a number of other robot companies. “In additional to Fetch, Honeywell has created strategic partnerships and investments in Soft Robotics and Attabotics,” said Lui.

In order to blend these technologies into solutions, Honeywell has created space where all the technologies can be integrated. “We’ve taken these investments, and established a robotics center of excellence,” said Lui.

Curating a Collection of Technologies

The investments to build out Honeywell’s logistics and packaging solutions reach beyond robotics and into advances that are still in world of academics and start-ups. “We’re investing in partnerships with software vendors, universities, startups, and incubators to create new solutions for both simple and complex needs,” said Lui.

In order to reach some of the bleeding edge technology, Honeywell has engaged Carnegie Mellon University. “Our collaboration with AI researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center is helping to develop breakthrough technologies for distribution centers,” said Lui. “The focus is on building architecture relying on artificial intelligence and advanced robotic systems for advanced supply chain demands.”

To support the packaged solutions, Honeywell has created platform that enables the technology elements. “Part of the collaboration comes from the Honeywell Universal Robotics Controller (HURC). This is a high-performance platform for vision, planning, and motion,” said Lui. “The HURC leverages the machine learning and robotic control software to provide the processing power to handle volumes of real-time data for faster perception and more effective action. The HURC uses a virtual environment for simulation, testing, and troubleshooting to drive rapid solution deployment.”

Rob Spiegel has covered automation and control for 19 years, 17 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cyber security. For 10 years, he was owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.


          

NXP Makes V2X Communication a Standard in the New Volkswagon Golf

 Cache

Volkswagen’s eighth-generation Golf compact hatchback boasts an impressive array of technologies and upgrades over the current model, but the real breakthrough is the integration of NXP Semiconductors’ Vehicle-to-Anything (V2X) WiFi communications technology.

The Golf is the first high-volume, mainstream model to feature V2X technology. Previously, V2X has been limited to niche models like the Cadillac CTS, but it is now standard equipment on all versions of the Golf. This is critical because widespread deployment of V2X is crucial to the technology’s ability to deliver its promised benefits.

Those benefits include the ability for cars to survey smart infrastructure devices such as traffic signals and areas such as construction zones, as well as communicate with other V2X-enabled vehicles. The aim is to create what VW is calling “swarm intelligence,” which refers to the ability of enabled cars to tap information from other cars around them on the road.

NXP’s V2X technology uses a WiFi signal to communicate with other cars and infrastructure – allowing cars within an 800-meter range to inform the Golf of their speed as well as important information such as whether they’ve crashed, or activated their anti-lock brakes or electronic stability control. Cars can even communicate small details, such as the state of their windshield wipers to inform trailing cars of rain ahead.

On-board sensors such as radar, infrared night vision, LiDAR, and cameras are limited to line-of-sight, and are inhibited by vision-impairing conditions such as fog, snow, and heavy rain. By using WiFi, V2X, by contrast, can communicate around curves, over hill crests, and further through the fog to notify vehicles of unseen hazards. “[V2X] even works in a tunnel environment,” Steffen Spannagel, NXP’s general manager for the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), car infotainment, and driver assistance product line, pointed out.

V2X data sharing is also possible via a cellular telephone connection. NXP asserts that WiFi is preferable though because of its shorter latency compared to cellular systems, as time is crucial in reacting to emergencies. Also, cellular network access costs money. “There is no subscription, there is no monthly charge,” emphasized Spannagel. “That is another key benefit compared to mobile-based networks.”

Of course, transferring technology meant for wirelessly relaying internet access from a router to a laptop to the dynamic environment of traffic safety involved many challenges. “WiFi is typically for stationary use,” Spannagel said. “We’re using it at 800 meters and operating at very high [vehicle] speed. Running communications in such challenging conditions is one big challenge, especially with the [interconnectivity software] stacks you run on your WiFi protocol.”

The wireless signal must also be secured against intrusion, which is another challenge NXP says that it has successfully overcome. “At NXP, we are bringing together all of these factors,” Spannagel said. Volkswagen must agree, considering that it selected NXP’s solution for the Golf.

As nations and municipalities build out smart infrastructure, cars like the Golf will benefit from still more data flowing in about the state of the road. Austria, in particular, is ambitiously equipping construction zones and safety response vehicles with transponders to relay information to V2X-equipped cars. Ideally, this solution will quickly achieve critical mass, rather than be mired in a standards war with alternatives like cellular, so that drivers can benefit from V2X sooner rather than later.

However, V2X is a complimentary technology rather than a substitute. It works best when vehicles are also equipped with sensors such as radar. Anti-collision systems equipped with such vehicle sensors can provide an early warning system to tell trailing cars to watch for pedestrians and cyclists, for example.

Of course, those leading vehicles must also be V2X-equipped for the Volkswagen Golf driver to benefit. VW's hope is that its commitment to the technology will encourage other carmakers to follow. “We are hoping that VW going through with it is a breakthrough and will make it a de facto technology, and makes other OEMs jump on it,” Spannagel said.

Majority Of U.S. Voters Say President Trump Will Be Re-Elected In 2020 Despite Impeachment Process

Daily Mail: Comfortable majority of voters say Trump WILL be re-elected in 2020 despite impeachment process – including one-third of Democrats

* A new poll found that 56 percent of registered voters believe President Trump will win again in 2020
* That includes 85 percent of Republicans, 51 percent of independents and 35 percent of Democrats, according to the Politico/Morning Consult survey
* Pollsters found that voters believed that Trump's voters were twice as likely than Hillary Clinton's to be 'very motivated' to go vote
* Another poll found that the percentage of voters who believe Trump should win re-election hasn't significantly changed since the impeachment inquiry opened

A majority of registered voters believe President Trump will win again in 2020.

A new Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 56 percent of all voters said Trump will be re-elected next year. The president obviously has an edge with Republicans, with 85 percent saying a Trump 2.0 is happening.

But a majority of independents - 51 percent - agreed. Even a third of Democrats, 35 percent, said they believed there would be four more years of President Trump.

WNU Editor: He will be difficult to defeat. President Trump has the advantage of the incumbency and the bully-pulpit. The economy is also doing well, and his base overwhelmingly supports him. The Democrat candidates for President are also not inspiring, and I have trouble seeing them being able to attract independent voters. But the election is still far away. A lot can happen in 12 months.

Should CIA Director Gina Haspel Protect The Ukraine Whistleblower From President Trump?

NBC: Intel officials want CIA Director Gina Haspel to protect Ukraine whistleblower from Trump

As Trump allies denounce the whistleblower, pressure is building on CIA Director Gina Haspel to take a stand, say current and ex intelligence officials.

WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump and his allies continue to denounce the CIA whistleblower whose complaint led to an impeachment investigation, pressure is building on the spy agency's director, Gina Haspel, to take a stand on the matter, current and former intelligence officials tell NBC News.

"It will be incumbent on her to protect the whistleblower — and by extension, the organization — moving forward," Marc Polymeropoulos, a recently retired CIA officer who oversaw operations in Europe and Russia, said in an interview. "This is a seminal moment for her leadership, and I'm confident she will do the right thing."

So far, Haspel has been publicly silent as Trump has railed about the whistleblower, a CIA analyst, on Twitter. So has the director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire.

Read more ....

WNU Editor: There is a problem with this "CIA analyst". He was removed from the White House for lying and leaking. He is implicated in filing a complaint against President Trump and Ukraine that has led to this impeachment inquiry, even though his complaint is at odds with the transcript that was released. He is a well known Democrat activist who is closely affiliated with former Obama intelligence officials whose opposition to President Trump is well known. Bottom line. This is a person who has used his CIA position to pursue a political agenda against the President and his policies. In this context, this is someone that I am sure CIA Director Gina Haspel does not want to step in and defend.

Democrats' 'Star Impeachment Witness' Admits He Was Not On The Trump-Ukraine Call, And That His Sole Source Of Information Was From The NY Times

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 09:17 PM PST


Zero Hedge: Democrats' 'Star Witness' Admits He Wasn't On Trump-Ukraine Call, Sole Source Was NY Times

House Democrats have released the latest in the series of heavily-redacted transcripts of the secret hearings they had undertaken in recent weeks - that of Bill Taylor - the top US diplomat in Ukraine - ahead of his public testimony next week.

As The Hill notes, Taylor is viewed as a key witness who previously testified in meticulous detail about what he considered an effort by Trump and his allies to pressure Ukraine into opening investigations that would benefit Trump politically.

In leaked copies of his 15-page opening statement, Taylor voiced concerns that the Trump administration had withheld nearly $400 million in aid as leverage to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into interference in the 2016 election and former Vice President Joe Biden, one of his leading 2020 political rivals.

WNU Editor: When you listen to the main stream media they are saying that Ambassador Bill Taylor is a critical witness to President Trump's demand for a quid-pro-quo from the Ukraine government on military aid and an investigation on the Bidens .... Why William Taylor's testimony is central to the impeachment inquiry (PBS). But when you read his transcript .... READ: Testimony Of William Taylor, Acting U.S. Envoy To Ukraine (NPR), the story is very different where he admits that his source of information comes SOLELY from the New York Times?!?!?! You gotta be kidding me. His sole source of information that he is basing his testimony on is from the New York Times?!?!?! It is not surprising that the main stream media is ignoring this critical admission. Kudos to the above post from Zero Hedge and The Federalist .... Testimony Transcript Shows William Taylor Never Talked To Trump, Wasn't Even On July 25 Phone Call (The Federalist) for their summary and analysis on Bill Taylor's testimony. As for the Democrats hoping that he will be their "star witness" next week, my advice to them is that they find a better witness.

José Barajas, who was snatched from his home, joins the ever-swelling ranks of thousands of desaparecidos, victims of the drug conflict that shows no sign of easing

As he set off into the wilderness under a punishing midday sun, Jesse Barajas clutched an orange-handled machete and the dream of finding his little brother, José.

"He's not alive, no. They don't leave people alive," the 62-year-old said as he slalomed through the parched scrubland of tumbleweed and cacti where they had played as kids. "Once they take someone they don't let you live."

Reuters: Iran fuels centrifuges, resumes uranium enrichment at Fordow

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran resumed uranium enrichment at its underground Fordow nuclear facility, the country's Atomic Energy Organisation (AEOI) said on Thursday, further stepping away from its 2015 nuclear deal with major powers.

The agreement bans enrichment and nuclear material from Fordow. But with feedstock gas entering its centrifuges, the facility, built inside a mountain, will move from the permitted status of research plant to being an active nuclear site.

"After all successful preparations ... injection of uranium gas to centrifuges started on Thursday at Fordow ... all the process has been supervised by the inspectors of the U.N. nuclear watchdog," the AEOI said in a statement, Iranian media reported

Israel Expects To Be Engaged In A Major War Very Soon

Michael Oren, The Atlantic: The Coming Middle East Conflagration

Israel is bracing itself for war with Iranian proxies, as Tehran escalates its provocations. But what will the United States do if conflict comes?

The senior ministers of the Israeli government met twice last week to discuss the possibility of open war with Iran. They were mindful of the Iranian plan for a drone attack from Syria in August, aborted at the last minute by an Israeli air strike, as well as Iran's need to deflect attention from the mass protests against Hezbollah's rule in Lebanon. The ministers also reviewed the recent attack by Iranian drones and cruise missiles on two Saudi oil installations, reportedly concluding that a similar assault could be mounted against Israel from Iraq.

The Israel Defense Forces, meanwhile, announced the adoption of an emergency plan, code-named Momentum, to significantly expand Israel's missile defense capacity, its ability to gather intelligence on embedded enemy targets, and its soldiers' preparation for urban warfare. Israeli troops, especially in the north, have been placed on war footing. Israel is girding for the worst and acting on the assumption that fighting could break out at any time.

Media Upset That Trump's Son Tweets Name Of Alleged Whistleblower Even Though His Name Was Revealed Last Week

AFP: Impeachment: Trump's son tweets name of alleged whistleblower

Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump's son published on Wednesday the name of the alleged anonymous whistleblower whose complaint fired the impeachment inquiry against Trump, breaking strict conventions for protecting officials who reveal wrongdoing in government.

Amid calls by the president himself to expose the whistleblower, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the name of a CIA analyst which has circulated online for weeks, and linked to a Breitbart news article implying the person was pro-Democrat and anti-Trump.

AFP could not independently verify the whistleblower's identity and is not publishing the name.
