Thats nuts, it's on the BBC!!!

Try looking up BBC future Data, the article is called Moral Machines, it would definately be one that interests you.

Can't find anything on the .co.uk site. We often have problems with your .com links.
I assume everyone but UK surfers can see the .com site. Weird and very annoying.

Comfort the Disturbed! Disturb the Comfortable!

I was able to read the article just fine. It opens up talking about how a bloke programmed a quad-coptor to "escort" (I think, "stalk" is a more fitting term) his child to the bus each morning, by tracking a GPS chip placed into the kid's backpack. A rather impressive bit of hackery, but a very UN-impressive bit of parenting (or, should I say, NON-parenting?).

Oh, I'm sorry! did I say that out loud? Tongue

I dunno, it's a quite ingenious way of ensuring the kid at least gets on the bus to school!!

I could think of a few parents who would have loved to be able to track their kids like this back in the day   Lips Sealed

It's that "ingenuity", and other "shining examples" of parenting, that have put us in the moral & cultural straights we're in now. Whatever happened to being engaged and involved with our kids, and when did it become ok to delegate that responsibility to machines?

This came up in a news feed today. Although manufacturers have been striving toward this for many years, maybe the technology has advanced enough to bring it to fruition.





Let's just hope it doesn't run on XP, clearly having to "Switch it off and on again" in the fast lane could be worrysom.  lol

I was disappointed by the clip that Toyota presented. 4 seconds of video of a car doing half a lane change? {insert derisive snort/scoff here} Useless!

Anyway, the idea of a self-driving vehicle is intriguing, but I don't think I'll ever want one, myself. I'm a HORRIBLE "back seat driver", and I'd be yelling at the AI constantly. Too stressful, if you ask me. Smiley

And Diesel, don't you mean Vista, rather than XP?
