Future is Nearer !
Much nearer than when I conceptualized :
Fast Forward to Future [ F 3 ] – 20 Oct 2016
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 !
