The robot bodyguard is coming — and you’ll want one

Posted by in categories: business, law enforcement, military, robotics/AI, security, transhumanism

My new story for VentureBeat on the coming of robot bodyguards. I’ll be speaking about this next week at RoboBusiness 2016, a major robotics conference in San Jose:


I recently consulted with the US Navy on all things “transhuman.” In those conversations about how science and technology can help the human race evolve beyond its natural limits, it was clear that military is keen on replacing human soldiers with both fighting and peacekeeping machines so American military lives never have to come under fire or be in harm’s way.

However, it’s the peacekeeping technology that is particularly interesting for many civilians. While you wouldn’t want an armed Terminator in your home, you might like a robot that travels with you and offers personal protection, like a bodyguard. In a survey by Travelzoo of 6,000 participants, nearly 80 percent of people said they expect robots to be a significant part of their lives by 2020 — and that those robots might even join them on holidays.

Prepare for threat of quantum computing to encrypted data, Canadian conference told

Posted by in categories: business, computing, encryption, government, quantum physics, security

My suggestion; don’t be one of those companies and governments in the next 5yrs that waits until the 9th hour meanwhile others planned, invested, and executed properly so they’re not exposed like you are.


The race to create new cryptographic standards before super-fast quantum computers are built that can rip apart data protected by existing encryption methods isn’t going fast enough, two senior Canadian officials have warned a security conference.

“I think we are already behind,” Scott Jones, deputy chief of IT security at the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), responsible for securing federal information systems, told the fourth annual international workshop on quantum-safe cryptography in Toronto on Monday.

China is more innovative than people think

Posted by in categories: business, economics, government

China has its sights to be the World’s SV.


Editor’s Note:

The New York Times business bestseller Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle which explores the roots of Israeli innovation has garnered global attention and won its co-authors Dan Senor and Saul Singer worldwide fame overnight. In a recent interview with Global Times reporter Zhang Ni (GT) in Beijing, Singer (S), who served as an adviser to the US House Foreign Affairs Committee before moving to Israel in 1994, said he believes China is more innovative than people think. He suggested that China is ahead of the US in some aspects, as Facebook is now trying to copy China’s WeChat.

DARPA and the JASON Scientists – The Pentagon’s Maladaptive Brain | Nathaniel Mauka – Waking Times

Posted by in categories: business, military, neuroscience

Nathaniel Mauka, Staff Writer Waking Times

An uncensored look into DARPA, the US government’s secretive agency, reveals exactly how the brain of the military industrial complex operates. Utilizing the super-scientific intellects of men, the agency may have stumbled upon the ultimate code to utterly control the human race, making all other DoD achievements pale in comparison.

DARPA’s arms reach far and wide – touching universities, small businesses, the public, of course, and also the established media. Despite its collaborative success, the brain running the show is acutely flawed, for its aim is not to protect and serve, but to control.

Hotel de Slaapfabriek to construct Europe’s first zero-footprint 3D printed building in 2017

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, business, energy, transportation

3D printing obviously has many advantages, but energy efficiency is one that is rarely mentioned. In fact, depending on the application and scale, 3D printing produces far few carbon emissions than many other manufacturing options. In an attempt to harness that advantage, the luxurious Dutch Hotel De Slaapfabriek from Teuge is planning to build a unique, 3D printed and zero-footprint conference location that provides a highly inspiring and modern environment. Construction is scheduled to kick off in July 2017, and could be completed in as little as ten days. If successful, it could pave the way for a new environmentally-friendly construction 3D printing paradigm.

This forthcoming structure could not have picked a more inspiring location in the Netherlands. De Slaapfabriek is a luxurious experience hotel in Teuge, The Netherlands (very near to International Airport Teuge in Gelderland). With unique twelve rooms available to clients, it’s a premier location for honeymoons and business trips. Since opening its doors in 2009, De Slaapfabriek has also won award after award, and currently boasts a Booking.com appreciation score of 9.3. The only thing that’s missing is a conference location, and when necessary the luxury breakfast and lounge area is transformed into a conference room. But this is not the best solution, and founders Arvid and Marjo Prigge developed an ambitious plan: to construct a completely new, environmentally-friendly conference location.
