Video: AMAZING U.S. AIR FORCE MILITARY ROBOT DOG YOU MUST SEE! United States’ Tyndall Air Force Base is integrating robot dogs from Ghost Robotics for security and surveillance of the base. The base, which is located 12 miles east of Panama City, Florida, is the home to the 325th Security Forces Squadron and is the first base to use the technology for enhanced security patrolling. Air Force will test capabilities of robots at Tyndall base, results of which can influence the decision for a wider implementation of robot dogs across other bases. Although the 100-pound robot dogs can be controlled with a remote, they will operate autonomously around the base for security and have the ability to turn themselves right side up if they are knocked over. The robot dogs can run for an extended period of time, and a single charge will support surveillance distance of 7.5 miles. The robots will have access to wireless charging doghouses to ensure easy charging. The robot dogs are capable of handling tasks such as remote inspection, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, mapping, distributed communications and persistent security. The robotic technology in combination with other technological innovations is expected to replace and upgrade the capabilities of traditional static defense equipment. According to Ghost Robotics CEO Jiren Parikh, the robot dogs can cover 7.5 feet per second, which is equivalent to covering the length of a football field in about 40 seconds. The company is aiming to enhance its performance to 10 feet per second. Ghost [More]

The U.S. Transhumanist Party’s first expert discussion panel, hosted in conjunction with the Nevada Transhumanist Party, asks panelists to consider emerging developments in artificial intelligence. Key questions addressed include the following: (i) What do you think will be realistic, practical applications of artificial intelligence toward improving human lives during the next 5 years? (ii) Are you genuinely concerned about existential risk stemming from AI, or do you think those concerns are exaggerated / overhyped (or do you have some intermediate position on these issues)? (iii) On the other hand, do you perceive significant tendencies in contemporary culture to overhype the positive / functional capabilities of AI? (iv) How can individuals, particularly laypersons, become better at distinguishing between genuine scientific and technological advances in AI and hype / fear-mongering? (v) What is your techno-optimistic vision for how AI can help improve the future of human (and transhuman) beings? (vi) What are your thoughts regarding prognostications of an AI-caused technological Singularity? Are they realistic? Panelists * Zak Field is an international speaker, consultant, games designer, and entrepreneur based in Norwich, UK.
