Future  is  Nearer  !

Future  is  Nearer  !

 

Much nearer than when I conceptualized :

 

Fast  Forward  to  Future  [  F 3  ] –  20  Oct  2016

https://myblogepage.blogspot.in/2016/10/fast-forward-to-future-3-f.html

 

I thought , this may happen by 2022

 

But , after reading the following news-snippet ( Economic Times / 01 Aug ) , I cannot escape the feeling that ARIHANT could well arrive ( – and save the mankind from Robots taking over  ? ) , by next year !

 

It goes to prove :

 

If you can “ Imagine “ a “ technological innovation “ , it will happen , sooner or later

More likely , sooner than later  !

 

“ These Ghosts Can Haunt Your Phone “

 

Las Vegas :

Chinese researchers have demonstrated an attack called the “ Ghost  Telephonist “ , which allows hackers to take over  “ PHONE  NUMBERS “ and gather “ CALL  and  MESSAGE  CONTENT  “

 

The demonstration was made by the Unicorn Team researchers from 360 TECHNOLOGY , Chinese leading security company , at the Black Hat , USA 2017

 

 

Those who have lingering “ doubts “ ( as to when this future will arrive ) , are requested to read the following news that appeared in Times of India ( 31 July ) :

 

“ Google flirts with AI that can imagine , plan “

 

Google’s artificial intelligence division is developing a system that can make its own PLANS

 

DeepMind  says its “ IMAGINATION  AUGMENTED  AGENTS  “ can “ IMAGINE “ the possible consequences of their actions, and  “ INTERPRET  “ those simulations

 

They can then make the “ RIGHT  DECISIONS  “ , for what it is they want to achieve

 

They , essentially THINK like HUMANS , trying out different strategies in their heads , so to speak, and are therefore able to LEARN , despite having little REAL experience

 

“ The AGENTS we introduce benefit from an IMAGINATION  ENCODER  – a neural network which LEARNS to ‘ extract any information ‘ useful for the Agent’s FUTURE  DECISIONS , but ignore that which is irrelevant “ , the researchers wrote in a blog post

 

For details , read :

 

 

 

I suppose , advocates arguing that “ RIGHT to PRIVACY “ is a fundamental constitutional right , may not like the above developments

 

But future of privacy does not look rosy !
