What qualifications should the 'driver' of a fully autonomous car need?

Truekaiser Re:Ban them, forever. (301 comments)

Put the car makers under the same strict regulations that the airplane autopilot manufacturers are.
It's the same principle just a different amount of passengers.
four to six instead of fifty +.

Truekaiser Re:So a good match... (354 comments)

As long as it costs less than 1 trillion(the f-35's current running total) it is not only a match but a good counter.

Valve Announces Linux-Based SteamOS

Truekaiser The real question is. (510 comments)

Are they going to share their patches to stuff like the open source radeon driver, the open source nvidia driver, and mesa to upstream?
They might just say 'we will give you all the source for our linux distribution, except the steam client(obviously), the streaming client, and any in house made performance enhancements.'

45% of U.S. Jobs Vulnerable To Automation

Truekaiser won't happen. (625 comments)

I used to think like this, but that was before I had a job at a major mail order prescription company.
Middle management tried to impress upper management by purchasing a one million dollar automated packing system, in theory it could do thousands of orders a day.
Far outclassing a single human packer at a packing station.
It only did that occasionally, why?
It was a dumb automated machine, ONE little deviation and it stopped working.
This was on top of other stuff on it not working like printing the wrong order's paper work, it throwing a fit if the rx's did not come down the line in the exact order it expected.
It also did not care if for instance the printers messed up, or the paper came out non flat causing the grabber arm to get it stuck on it.
This is the general problem with automation fantasies, physicly it may be possible to replace the human doing the job with a machine.
But the machine is no where near as fault tolerant as a human.
If one of these machines encounters a minor error such as product being out of order, or objects not being 'exactly' where it expects it to be, they stop at best and at worst ignoring it causing more problems.
For a human worker it's just a fraction of a second routine correction.

Google Speeding Up New Encryption Project After Latest Snowden Leaks

Truekaiser I don't buy it. (3 comments)

Goolge already complies, and rather willingly to the government spying.
How can they possibly claim what they are working on does not have a back door, or bugs they are unwilling to fix to allow access to cia, nsa, and other agencies?
It is sad i have been proven right after years of saying 'be suspicious of all publicly available encryption.'
Has it really gotten to the point that if you want secure encryption you have to make your own?

World-First: Woman Becomes Pregnant After Ovarian Tissue Graft

Truekaiser Re:Good and bad. (87 comments)

Acknowledging a fact, and advocating for it are two different things. I hope one day you realize the difference.

I Acknowledge that from 100,000 years ago to roughly 10,000 years ago being born blind or with any such handicap was a death sentence. If not by nature then by fellow tribesmen who can't afford to take on an extra burden of someone who can't do anything.
I Acknowledge that from about 10,000 years ago to only 200 or so years ago, being born with a handicap entitled you to a short life at worst. At best depending on your class, creed, and culture you might live a semi productive life.

We have the tools now to overcome our limitations, but those won't last long. How long is up to debate.
So I Acknowledge the fact that without those tools we will be back to viewing those things as burdens.
Yet with them a handicapped person, baring prevention by class and creed, can live a full productive life.

Do I advocate for those things to happen? No, I do admit that these facts exist.
I admit that while wrong to anthromorphize nature by saying nature doesn't care, but it is the best way to describe it.

Well here is the thing.
It would of happened in nature anyway, if he was born as any other animal he would of died young. If humans were still living as we were when we first came onto the planet, he would of.

How Gen Y Should Talk To Old People At Work

Truekaiser Re:How about some respect for ancient knowlege (459 comments)

No just poking holes in you're 'always respect' comment.
Age does not equal wisdom or knowledge.
And it is no secret about office politics, the corporate office system as it is now is geared to psycopathic behavior. And unless you are born into the boss's or owner's family. Or are a family friend. It is the only way to get ahead.

How Gen Y Should Talk To Old People At Work

Truekaiser Re:Baby Boomers are a burden now. (459 comments)

If i had not already posted a bunch. I would mod this up as MUCH as i can.
I think most of the gen x and y people. Myself included looking at our parents. The so called 'baby boomers and greatest generation(HA)'. Saw how the 50+ work hour weeks wrecked them, heard how they lamented how they did not have the time they wanted for themselves. Or how they could not spend the time they wanted to their family.
And thought. No, I, won't do that to myself.

How Gen Y Should Talk To Old People At Work

Truekaiser Re:Whatever happened to merit? (459 comments)

There is a problem, or maybe it was the 'point' of the work hard mindset.
That if you work hard at where you're at, you can be seen as 'you best fit here' so the bosses will pass you over for promotion because they figure your replacement will be worse.

But to be honest, everyone should agree and realize it's not your merits that get you jobs and promotions. It has always been and always will be WHO you manage to befriend, and WHO'S family you were born into.

Topeka Kansas repeals domestic violence law.

Truekaiser Truekaiser writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Truekaiser (724672) writes "Facing budget cuts of 10%. By a vote of 7 to 3, the City Council repealed the local law that makes domestic violence a crime to reduce costs. this forces the cost of prosecuting the crime from the district attorney and the state it's self. In response to this and the budget cuts, District Attorney Chad Taylor has refused to prosecute all misdemeanors in Topeka."
