Posted by in categories: drones, government, military, robotics/AI, terrorism

Oh, joy. You can take the drone out of 2020, but you can’t take the 2020 out of the drone.


A “lethal” weaponized drone “hunted down a human target” without being told to for the first time, according to a UN report seen by the New Scientist.

The March 2020 incident saw a KARGU-2 quadcopter autonomously attack a human during a conflict between Libyan government forces and a breakaway military faction, led by the Libyan National Army’s Khalifa Haftar, the Daily Star reported.

U.S. has almost 500,000 job openings in cybersecurity

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, government

The need for more web watchmen spans from private businesses to government agencies, experts say, and most of the job openings are in California, Florida, Texas and Virginia. That means for anyone looking to switch careers and considering a job in cybersecurity, there’s no greater time than now to find work, the job trackers said.

“You don’t have to be a graduate of MIT to work in cybersecurity,” said Tim Herbert, executive vice president for research at CompTIA. “It just requires someone who has the proper training, proper certification and is certainly committed to the work.”

Army to Equip First Unit With Augmented Reality Headsets

Posted by in category: government

The Army will begin equipping units with augmented reality headsets by the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, according to Congressional testimony by two of the service’s top officials.

In written testimony prepared for the House Appropriation Committee’s defense subcommittee, Acting Secretary of the Army John Whitley and Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville detailed the service’s priorities as lawmakers wait for President Joe Biden’s 2022 budget request. Whitley and McConville wrote that they need continued Congressional support for rapid prototyping, development and procurement for the Integrated Visual Augmentation System, or IVAS, among other emerging programs.

“By 1QFY22, we’ll equip the first unit with IVAS,” Whitley and McConville said in their joint written testimony prepared for a Wednesday hearing. The government’s fiscal 2022 year begins in October.

New technique can print life-like organ models in minutes

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics, government

I still don’t get how there seems to be No organized effort anywhere to achieve the ability to 3D print a perfect genetic match of all organs by 2025 — 2030. You would think some government somewhere would want to work round the clock on this.


NIBIB-funded engineers at the University of Buffalo have fine-tuned the use of stereolithography for 3D printing of organ models that contain live cells. The new technique is capable of printing the models 10–50 times faster than the industry standard-;in minutes instead of hours-; a major step in the quest to create 3D-printed replacement organs.

Conventional 3D printing involves the meticulous addition of material to the 3D model with a small needle that produces fine detail but is extremely slow —taking six or seven hours to print a model of a human part, such as a hand, for instance. The lengthy process causes cellular stress and injury inhibiting the ability to seed the tissues with live, functioning cells.
