Far too gauche and brute force.
The AI would likely just infiltrate Facebook's newsfeed algorithm, and subtly manipulate a variety of people and groups to act in unrelated ways at certain places and certain times. The ultimate purpose isn't to have them do anything specific, but in actually, to make the movement and weight distribution infinitesimally alter the spin and balance of the Earth so that the precise location of the Falcon 9 intersected with the path of a meteorite - a meteorite that was picked up by automated observation, yet which humans missed... but the AI saw.
THAT is how an AI would destroy a rocket.
If necessary, yes.
The old adage about everybody except you jumping off a bridge comes to mind, and this isn't the XKCD case where the reason for leaping is nebulous and open to humorous investigation. We've established the mob is stupid. Your choice comes down to telling them they're stupid and why, silently refusing to participate, or leaping just because everyone else is - even though you know it's a stupid idea.
Then his friends and family are stupid and need to be ridiculed into migrating to something more secure. Like effectively anything else, including smoke signals and pig latin.
WeChat is a Tencent product, and Tencent is partially state-owned by the People's Republic of China. So I can guarantee you that anything you do in that program - in fact, probably anything you do in any device with that program installed, or any device linked to your WeChat profile with social media or other links - is going straight to a national surveillance agency. Just not an American one.
That being the case, I have to seriously question the credibility of anybody suggesting WeChat in the context of basically anything.
Did anybody bother to control for the prevalence of smoking and other environmental factors that may not be in play for most individuals 50 years later?
Mission Control looked like a nicotine hotbox half the time back then, and astronauts rotated through as CAPCOM. And that's not even starting to consider what else they may have been deliberately or accidentally exposed to during the early space program.
So many squirrels, but NONE of them are the right shade of purple. What are the odds?
She's corrupt and senile and completely off in la-la land. Time for her to retire somewhere she can yell at clouds and grumble about not being able to divert federal contracts to her husband or wipe her ass with the Bill of Rights anymore.
This article is part of an excuse-building campaign for companies to hire more H-1Bs.
"We can't find any Americans! They're all too incompetent, expensive, and doped to the gills!"
The core goal of 'Mechs is to pack a lot of firepower into an easily transportable package that requires a single pilot and can traverse ground like infantry.
Tanks are good - on Earth. When you suddenly have to force project across multiple planets, sometimes with hostile LZs from deorbital burns, and occasionally into completely unknown environments, 'Mechs suddenly have a lot of useful qualities as an overall warfighting system.
Once the technology matures to tie them into a pilot's nervous system for balance and direct neural control - and we are NOT that far off, really - they'll be highly effective as shock weapons and expeditionary warfighting platforms.
Microsoft owns the video game license to BattleTech, and Topps owns the tabletop side of the franchise.
Neither is anywhere near as likely to sue as Harmony Fucking Gold (may they be tentacle-fucked in Hell).
There are "hammerless" revolvers that have no exposed hammer, and I believe there is at least one striker-fired revolver design.
Your analogy would be valid if somebody was reacting to street racing deaths (human behavior) by shouting for speed governors that prevented speeds above the speed limit, tiny gas tank sizes (to require more frequent fuel stops), and convoluted electronic interlocks that had to be painstakingly disabled every time you wanted to use the full performance of a "unregulated racing car" (aka, anything more powerful and sporty than a Nissan Leaf).
There absolutely have been deep investigations of defective and faulty firearm designs. Look at the investigation that was done following the disastrous budget-oriented changes to the M-16 technical data package after the DoD adopted the initial Eugene Stoner design from Armalite (later Colt). The M1911, Browning's masterpiece, was almost entirely a response to the performance and technical failures of existing US Army handguns in the Philippines against the Islamic Moros. The list goes on.
Firearms designers have been very rapid to iterate on failures that are legitimately because of design or technical flaws. They'll even incorporate human factor issues in the designs. But they have absolutely no obligation to purposefully hobble and mangle a sound design based on logical fallacies that claim the changes will somehow (we're not sure how) reduce human negligence.
egrep patterns are full regular expressions; it uses a fast deterministic algorithm that sometimes needs exponential space. -- unix manuals
