How the Pentagon's Robots Would Automate War

koan Laugh (115 comments)

I'm not reading 72 pages of military sales pitches, but I do challenge this assertion:

Pentagon officials are worried that the U.S. military is losing its edge compared to competitors like China

That sounds like complete BS.

What Would Have Happened If Philae Were Nuclear Powered?

koan Re:RTG (519 comments)

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011

koan koan writes  |  more than 2 years ago

koan (80826) writes "The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, allows companies or the government free rein to bypass existing laws in order to monitor communications, filter content, or potentially even shut down access to online services for "cybersecurity purposes." Companies are encouraged to share data with the government and with one another, and the government can share data in return. The idea is to facilitate detection of and defense against a serious cyber threat, but the language is so broad it could be used as a blunt instrument to attack websites like The Pirate Bay or WikiLeaks"
