Yes, I think so. I sent you a u2u.
Things are moving right along, I hear the Robots even
have their own internet - RoboEarth.
Will check out the Who news - thanks.
Nice to see ya! check your messages.

benefit of human beings?
depends on what your definition of human beings is
AI's, Robots ( and possibly frozen embryos and maybe cyborgs ) can space travel, and/or can shut down to wait for better times on this
wreck of a rock, which is like one way time travel...
biggest killer of the last century at some 262 millions directly is government
....like the one(s) that google is in bed with
it only takes one nutbar on the joystick whether it be man or machine
do drones ever get qualms of concience?
ever bring a gun to drone fight?
Several years ago Ralph Gomery warned me that the damage done to US labor by jobs offshoring was about to be superseded by robotics. Gomery told me that the ownership of the technology patents is highly concentrated and that breakthroughs have made robots increasingly human in their capabilities. Consequently, the prospect for employment of humans is dismal.
Gomory’s words reverberated with me when I read RT’s February 15, 2014, report that computer and robotic experts at Harvard have constructed mobile machines programmed with the logic of termites to be self-organizing and able to complete complex tasks without central direction or oversight. rt.com...
RT doesn’t understand the implications. Instead of raising a red flag, RT gushes: “The possibilities are vast. The machines can be made to build any three-dimensional structure on their own and with minimal instruction. But what is truly staggering is their ability to adapt to their work environment and to each other; to calculate losses, reorganize efforts and make adjustments. It is already clear that the development will do wonders for humanity in space, hard-to-reach places and other difficult situations.”
The way the world is organized under a few powerful and immensely greedy private interests, the technology will do nothing for humanity. The technology means that humans will no longer be needed in the work force and that emotionless robotic armies will take the place of human armies and have no compunction about destroying the humans on whom they are unleashed. The picture that emerges is more threatening than Alex Jones’ predictions. Faced with little demand for human labor, little wonder thinkers predict that the rich intend to annihilate the human race and live in an uncrowded environment served by their robots. If this story has not been written as science fiction, someone should get on the job before it becomes ordinary reality
the technology will do nothing for humanity. ......
