News high-tech: the most dangerous artificial intelligence

In the world of high technology is constantly going on so much that even we sometimes difficult to choose the most interesting. But we could now tell. Spoiler: Musk has not yet flown to Mars, but the Chinese are willing to settle on the moon.

1. Soon, instead of Turkey on the ISS will fly! Roscosmos will send to the ISS two new space tourists. Russian state Corporation and the American company Space adventures has signed a new contract on the implementation of the short-term space flights. On the website of the Roscosmos indicated that both space tourist for the first time will be sent on the same ship.

Since 2001 under this program have been in space 7 — the last tourist was there in 2009. At this time, “Roscosmos” will offer space tourists to fly around the Earth along the route of Yuri Gagarin, this will reduce preparation time for flight.

Already looking for somewhere to write, to become one of the tourists? Forced to disappoint — they have already been identified, though names have not yet been reported. However, it is unlikely you will be upset when you learn that the execution of all works on creation of space technology will be at the expense of their funds. Oh, another billionaire would send…

2. This is gonna be a bit of a scandal. Elon Musk and his company SpaceX sued the space Agency NASA to court — Yes, his direct employer and partner, after all, under contract with NASA, the company Mask supplies supplies to the ISS using its Falcon 9 rockets. The problem is that SpaceX lost the bid and now demands an explanation. First and foremost, Musk wondered why for a scientific mission to the Trojan satellites of Jupiter was selected as the missile of a competitor, if the rocket SpaceX is 30% cheaper.

You see, the fact is that U.S. support for private space activities is carried out directly through NASA — the Agency gives grants and contracts to large companies, supporting their development and partly financing. If not for the support of NASA in the difficult years of SpaceX, the company could not have been possible.

However, on January 31, NASA announced that the tender for the launch Lucy asteroids of Jupiter in October 2021, will go to United Launch Alliance, a joint venture of Boeing and Lockheed Martincompeting with a Mask.

3. This week in the Internet appeared the video with tested marine drone “Poseidon” with a nuclear power plant. The video shows the process of preparation and the launch itself. It is known that the underwater vehicle, Poseidon has a greater fighting power — it can be equipped with conventional ammunition and nuclear. Its maximum speed is estimated at 200 kilometers per hour, and the power of a nuclear shell can reach an impressive two megatons. The cruising range of the new devices may be virtually unlimited.

Беспилотник «Посейдон»

In the message to the Federal Assembly the President announced that the first nuclear submarine “Poseidon” will be launched in the spring of 2019. It is expected that the naval fleet of Russia will acquire 32 unmanned vehicles that will be placed on four submarines. One of them is likely to be the submarine special purpose “Khabarovsk”.

And if I called it “Kraken”, it would be fun.

4. Who better than Elon Musk, known for his bold predictions? This week he once again “insulted” anyone who doubts its ability to rid the world of drivers: the Tesla CEO said that the function of full self-government in the cars of the company will be completed before the end of 2019. Until the end of 2020, he added, it will be so capable that you will be able to sleep at the wheel until it the car takes you from the Parking lot to work.

Today, the Tesla customers who want to spend an extra $ 5,000, can unlock the advanced function of the autopilot in their cars, which is much simpler than promises Musk. This technology brings the car on the road offers to keep or to change lanes, helps with navigation, highway interchanges and exit.

We’d like to see the Tesla autopilot will cope with traffic jams in Central Moscow during the summer excavations…

5. Ah, life is not a scientist quietly took and developed the most dangerous artificial intelligence in the world.

He was supposed to translate texts into other languages, to answer questions, and perform other useful tasks, but research has shown that it can be extremely dangerous and used by criminals in mass deception of the people.

For example, artificial intelligence can write a whole essay about the positive sides of recycling or fantasy story in the style of “Lord of the rings”. The system also copes with writing false news about celebrities, disasters and even wars.

Due to the fact that it can be used for uncontrolled creation of false news and publications in social networks, it was decided not to publish in open access and to keep them secret.

These are the main news from the world of high technology for the week. Who do you think will fly to the ISS? Win Elon Musk court? Write about it in our Telegram chat.
