Future is Nearer !



Much nearer than when I conceptualized :


Fast  Forward  to  Future  [  F 3  ] -  20  Oct  2016





I thought , this may happen by 2022



But , after reading the following news-snippet ( Economic Times / 01 Aug ) , I cannot escape the feeling that ARIHANT could well arrive ( - and save the mankind from Robots taking over  ? ) , by next year !



It goes to prove :


If you can “ Imagine “ a “ technological innovation “ , it will happen , sooner or later


More likely , sooner than later  !





“ These Ghosts Can Haunt Your Phone “



Las Vegas :


Chinese researchers have demonstrated an attack called the “ Ghost  Telephonist “ , which allows hackers to take over  “ PHONE  NUMBERS “ and gather “ CALL  and  MESSAGE  CONTENT  “



The demonstration was made by the Unicorn Team researchers from 360 TECHNOLOGY , Chinese leading security company , at the Black Hat , USA 2017





Those who have lingering “ doubts “ ( as to when this future will arrive ) , are requested to read the following news that appeared in Times of India ( 31 July ) :



“ Google flirts with AI that can imagine , plan “



Google’s artificial intelligence division is developing a system that can make its own PLANS


DeepMind  says its “ IMAGINATION  AUGMENTED  AGENTS  “ can “ IMAGINE “ the possible consequences of their actions, and  “ INTERPRET  “ those simulations



They can then make the “ RIGHT  DECISIONS  “ , for what it is they want to achieve



They , essentially THINK like HUMANS , trying out different strategies in their heads , so to speak, and are therefore able to LEARN , despite having little REAL experience



“ The AGENTS we introduce benefit from an IMAGINATION  ENCODER  - a neural network which LEARNS to ‘ extract any information ‘ useful for the Agent’s FUTURE  DECISIONS , but ignore that which is irrelevant “ , the researchers wrote in a blog post





For details , read :










I suppose , advocates arguing that “ RIGHT to PRIVACY “ is a fundamental constitutional right , may not like the above developments



But future of privacy does not look rosy !
