Think about it: the most important part of a heist is getting away, and that’s where things go wrong.

You can’t out-drive the cops: they’ll close off the roads and lay down those spikes. You can’t hide: they’ve got those DNA sniffers. You can’t go underground: the sewer is full of mutants. So obviously you’ve got to go up, up, up.

Powerful computers are studying our digital footprints, down to the most mundane activities in our day-to-day lives. They know what we buy and how we vote, and may end up altering society in unrecognisable ways.

Should fully autonomous military robots that can kill without human intervention be banned from use in warfare? http://bit.ly/Tczws0

Here are 2 RELEVANT LINKS about Robots and War with videos that you might want to look at...  The first has a look at one of the robots from Boston Dynamics + links to a TED talk about robots & war from a couple of years back that looks down-the-road at where we are headed... https://plus.google.com/u/0/110811729614009320896/posts/QBAkijXz15K
The second includes links to things like the "DARPA humming bird robot video"...

To give you more context, think of this, the military doesn't invest in these technologies just for the heck of it, they see a future where some of these will be lethal to "enemies"... and from there, it's an arms race.

If we know the personality traits associated with the placebo effect, should they be taken into account when conducting drug trials? #medicine #health

Perched like giant metal spiders in the remote Australian outback, the antennae of a newly unveiled telescope array will give the world a vastly improved view of the Sun – and much faster warnings on massive solar storms. #sciencesunday

An underground movement in Australia and the U.S. is giving people a sixth sense: the ability to 'feel' magnetic fields.
