Artificial data give the same results as real data — without compromising privacy

"“Once we model an entire database, we can sample and recreate a synthetic version of the data that very much looks like the original database, statistically speaking,” says Veeramachaneni. “If the original database has some missing values and some noise in it, we also embed that noise in the synthetic version… In a way, we are using machine learning to enable machine learning.”

SRI Report Independently Verifies Brillouin LENR Reactions (report included)

https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/thread/5552-sri-report-independently-verifies-brillouin-lenr-reactions-report-included/

https://www.lenr-forum.com/attachment/4676-sri-technical-report-kopia-pdf/

Brillouin’s LENR technology includes a proprietary method of electrical stimulation of nickel metal conductors using its Q-Pulse™ control system. The process stimulates the system to produce LENR reactions, which generate excess heat. Other than the heat output, there are no (zero) toxic or CO2 bi-product emissions of any kind.

Pulse - 1988

A movie "loosely" based on the 84 story by John Varley called " Press Enter []". X Files also did a take-off on it, but all i remember was a "defense" satellite targeting a hide out trailer. I believe both of those were based on an un-freindly AI, but the Pulse movie was just a bit o' evil in the lines.

Some fabulous macro photog of electronic components overheating,and the play out of circuit boards to city streets is reminiscent of Tron.

An exemplary display of how important music and audio are to make suspenseful and tense tableau. Acting just adequate, and decent S.E. of elect discharge don't date it to bad.

Seems to me at 3.4, the first stage is to bring down all competing nations electric grids, thereby slowing trade, transportation, and hampering retaliation. Think of non-lethal mines. The side effects would be instantaneous, and lethal. And the military could easily see it as a defensible and deniable action.

this would be trivial to anything hooked into the net, and has access to SCADA coding and grid diagrams.

It would also behoove the local "friendly" AI , to interupt communications in it's home base, to keep outside influences from retaliating against it's base. So you would likely get a comms blackout , except when the AI wanted to communicate it's orders. It would also make sense to set up new frequency hopping algo's on existing lines where that would be possible (i.e. not old POTS lines?)

"The MILD technique works on what we call 'prospective memory' - that is, your ability to remember to do things in the future. By repeating a phrase that you will remember you're dreaming, it forms an intention in your mind that you will, in fact, remember that you are dreaming, leading to a lucid dream,"

  1. reality testing - which involves checking your environment several times a day to see whether or not you're dreaming.

  2. wake back to bed - waking up after five hours, staying awake for a short period, then going back to sleep in order to enter a REM sleep period, in which dreams are more likely to occur.

  3. MILD (mnemonic induction of lucid dreams) - which involves waking up after five hours of sleep and then developing the intention to remember that you are dreaming before returning to sleep, by repeating the phrase: "The next time I'm dreaming, I will remember that I'm dreaming." You also imagine yourself in a lucid dream.

Suicide molecules kill any cancer cell (in mice)

"Peter found that a large number of these small RNAs derived from certain genes did not, as expected, only suppress the gene they were designed against. They also killed all cancer cells. His team discovered these special sequences are distributed throughout the human genome, embedded in multiple genes as shown in the study in Cell Cycle.

When converted to siRNAs, these sequences all act as highly trained super assassins. They kill the cells by simultaneously eliminating the genes required for cell survival. By taking out these survivor genes, the assassin molecule activates multiple death cell pathways in parallel."

Of particular interest was one of the found oscillators, which generated voltage spikes resembling stimuli typical for neurons. The similarity of impulses was striking here, but not complete.

"Our artificial neuron analogue proved to be much faster than its biological counterpart: pulses were produced thousands of times more often! If it were not for the lack of criticality and multi-fractality, the speed of operation of this circuit would justify talking about an electronic super-neuron. Perhaps such a circuit exists, only we have not found it yet. At the moment, we have to be satisfied with our 'almost super-neuron'," comments Dr. Minati, with a smile.

Physically active white men at high risk for plaque buildup in arteries

"When these findings were stratified by race and gender, they found that white men were at the highest risk-they were 86 percent more likely to have CAC. There was no higher odds of CAC for black participants who exercised at this level, and while there was a similar trend for white women it was not statistically significant."

"High levels of exercise over time may cause stress on the arteries leading to higher CAC," said Rana, "however this plaque buildup may well be of the more stable kind, and thus less likely to rupture and causes heart attack, which was not evaluated in this study."

Next Steps • Publish – – One or more papers on results of our current laboratory scale test program – Additional peer-reviewed papers on theory are in preparation – Paper on IMES-1 design and Concept of Operations (CONOPS) • Upgrade test facilities and increase thrust – –Increase data rate and number of channels –Improve torsion balance – Increase thrust ~10x • Design an on-orbit test of the MEGA drive – – Our planned on-orbit test using a microsatellite (or CubeSat) is presently at TRL ~ 2 – We favor a rotational test, spinning a microsatellite up (and down) by opposing drives. This removes atmospheric drag as a major error source.

What I Hate About Dating Women vs What I Hate About Dating Men

https://medium.com/@emmalindsay/what-i-hate-about-dating-women-vs-what-i-hate-about-dating-men-bb2699ba182b

"There is also something a little bit socially darwinian about the whole thing. The overriding assumption with guys I date seems to be that the most valuable thing I have to contribute to my children is my DNA. My life experience and wisdom? Worthless. I mean, maybe that’s too harsh — many men do care about personality — but only after I’ve made the DNA cut. And, it’s worth mentioning, I think many men care about intelligence more than looks, so they’re not “superficial” exactly, but they view intelligence as an inheritable trait and they like me because they think my kids will get that trait from me. My primary bartering chip with men is what I was born with."

"This article was triggered by the contemporary experiences of the authors. We were tired of hearing economists talk about how necessary growth and productivity are for well-being. We don’t believe in this story any more."
