Irrigation Systems in Israel Disrupted

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, food, sustainability

Automated irrigation systems in the Northern part of Israel were briefly disrupted recently in an attack that once again shows how easy it can be to hack industrial control systems (ICS).

The Jerusalem Post reported that hackers targeted water controllers for irrigation systems at farms in the Jordan Valley, as well as wastewater treatment control systems belonging to the Galil Sewage Corporation.

Farms were warned by Israel’s National Cyber Directorate prior to the incident, being instructed to disable remote connections to these systems due to the high risk of cyberattacks. Roughly a dozen farms in the Jordan Valley and other areas failed to do so and had their water controllers hacked. This led to automated irrigation systems being temporarily disabled, forcing farmers to turn to manual irrigation.

Here’s why faster-than-light travel leads to maddening time paradoxes

Posted by in category: space travel

Forever intrigued by attempting the impossible, we’ve made traveling faster than the speed of light a staple of our works of science fiction. Most science fiction stories feature some way of getting from point A to point B faster than light, whether it’s via activating the warp drive or jumping into hyperspace.

Securing Artificial Intelligence in Large Language Models

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) encompasses several disciplines: natural language processing, automated reasoning, machine learning (ML), deep learning, neural networks, cognitive computing, advanced analytics, and data mining, among others. Michela Menting, senior research director at ABI Research, explores the state of AI today and highlights the need to secure LLM models to prevent the risks of the unbridled evolution of AI.

More strictly, AI involves the study and creation of computer systems capable of intelligent behavior, i.e., capable of performing or mimicking cognitive functions that are intuitively associated with human minds, including the ability to learn from the environment, adapt to it, interpret it, make inferences, and solve problems.

OpenAI CEO Sam Altman recently warned that he has no qualms about removing ChatGPT from Europe if legislation designed to regulate AI becomes law. The legislation in question is the AI Act and includes several provisions that Altman argues are overly broad and overreaching.

“The current draft of the EU AI Act would be over-regulating,” Altman said in remarks picked up by Reuters. “But we have heard it’s going to get pulled back,” he added.

Graphene sensor could let you control robots with your mind

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI

Australian researchers have used the “wonder material” graphene to develop a sensor that could enable anyone to control robot technology with their minds.

“The hands-free, voice-free technology works outside laboratory settings, anytime, anywhere,” said co-developer Francesca Iacopi. “It makes interfaces such as consoles, keyboards, touchscreens, and hand-gesture recognition redundant.”

Tesla Model Y is now the world’s best-selling car, first EV to do so

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation

The Tesla Model Y was the world’s best-selling car in Q1 2023, marking the first time ever that an EV has achieved this feat, according to industry analyst JATO Dynamics.

Model Y sales have been growing around the world for the last few years, putting the car on the trajectory to become the world’s best-selling vehicle. The feat was first predicted even before the car came to market, as Tesla thought the car could see up to a million units of demand per year.

It was an ambitious goal at the time, with many considering it another example of an “optimistic” Tesla prediction, but last year Tesla said the Model Y was on track to become the world’s best-selling car in 2023.

Elon Musk Says Bill Gates’ Understanding Of AI Is “Limited”

Posted by in categories: education, Elon Musk, employment, health, robotics/AI

Billionaire Elon Musk took a dig at fellow billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates over his knowledge of artificial intelligence (AI). He insisted that Mr. Gates has a “limited” understanding of AI.

This was in response to a tweet by Sandy Kory, who praised the leadership of Mr. Gates at Microsoft and his approach toward AI. “‘I’d been meeting with the team from OpenAI since 2016…” –from Bill Gates’ essay, The Age of AI Has Begun. It’s big when someone like Gates is so bullish on AI. Also notable that MSFT has been tracking this so closely for so long,” he said.

Mr. Kory was referring to a long, 3,639-word essay the billionaire wrote on his blog titled “The Age of A.I. Has Begun”. He wrote about how humanity was waiting for another great revolution. Mr. Gates discussed the potential impact of AI on employment, health care, and education.
