Warren Buffett on hand as Navy commissions newest warship

  Warren Buffett on hand as Navy commissions newest warship The U.S. Navy on Saturday commissioned its newest warship, the USS Omaha, a futuristic, $440 million vessel named for the Nebraska hometown of billionaire Warren Buffett, who was on hand for the ceremony. The Omaha, a 218-foot-long littoral combat ship, was commissioned at its new home port in San Diego.Buffett's daughter, Susie Buffett, who was designated as the ship's sponsor, gave the traditional order for officers and crew: "Man our ship and bring her to life.""Aye, aye, ma'am," they replied and ran to the ship as a band struck up "Anchors Aweigh."The aluminum-clad Omaha is designed for missions close to shore.

We knew this day would come sooner or later. Like the cloned velociraptors before it, Boston Dynamics’ newly redesigned Spot Mini has figured out how to open doors — with either its arm or face, depending on how you look at it.

The team behind the Big Dog proves that it's still the master of viral robotic marketing, even after switching teams from Google to Softbank. Three months after debuting a more streamlined version of its electronic Spot Mini, the company’s got another teaser wherein one robot equipped with a head-mounted arm makes (relatively) quick work of a door, letting his his pal waltz through.

The video’s impressive for both the agility of the arm itself, as well as the robot's ability to maintain balance as it swings open what looks to be a fairly heavy door.

Biomedicine: Self-Healing, Recyclable Electronic Skin

  Biomedicine: Self-Healing, Recyclable Electronic Skin Making recyclable electronics is crucial for curbing electronic waste."This has quite broad applications, in a sense, to enable sensation of otherwise passive systems," Jianliang Xiao, mechanical engineer at Boulder who led the study, told Newsweek. Those passive systems are the electronic devices we use, but which don't have the same capabilities that our skin naturally has.

“Clever girl,” indeed.

Like the last video, the teaser doesn’t offer a ton of insight into what’s new with the bumble bee colored version of the company’s already announced robot. Last time out, it appeared as though we got a preview of a pair of Kinect-style 3D cameras that could give a little more insight into the robot’s navigation system.

That tech seemed to hint at the possibility of an advanced autonomous control system. Given the brevity of the video, however, it’s tough to say whether someone’s controlling the ‘bots just out of frame.

If the company managed program Spot Mini to actually open the door on its own in order to help free its friend, well, perhaps it's time to be concerned.

Artificial intelligence poses risks of misuse by hackers, researchers say .
The researchers said the malicious use of AI poses imminent threats to digital, physical and political security by allowing for large-scale, finely targeted, highly efficient attacks. The study focuses on plausible developments within five years."We all agree there are a lot of positive applications of AI," Miles Brundage, a research fellow at Oxford's Future of Humanity Institute. "There was a gap in the literature around the issue of malicious use.
