Hmmm, a day of hardware trials down the drain, because the robot was not calibrated ahead of time. Whatever the quality of software, lack of calibration breaks any endeavour. How is it on famous platforms like Boston Dynamics’s dog or Figure AI’s?

“Curiosity, an intellectual and physical restlessness that led to grand discoveries, was a virtue exclusively present in the coloniser. This was powerful leverage: It gave them the self-appointed status of the Greatest Race on Earth, and the divine right do with the rest of the world as they pleased.”

“driven largely by sharply increased defence budgets in the US”, everyone else’s spends more on NW. Definite doom gloom. Or gloom doom. https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/jun/17/global-spending-on-nuclear-weapons-up-13-in-record-rise

Yeah, but the source is also the best documentation. It save even more time?

A small computer based on living organoids (c.f. Levin's anthrobots, etc) operating 24/7 for 4 years, now open for others to play with. Not clear how "Turing complete" this is now---not read all---but interesting whether Turing completeness matters. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/frai.2024.1376042/full

Can’t find the original study yet on GroundTruthAI (nothing completely new here, though), but interesting conclusion: Advice to *not* integrate and release GenAI-based search yet. https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/ai-chatbots-got-questions-2024-election-wrong-27-time-study-finds-rcna155640

Taking a break on Warpcast, after a few minutes of all-apps repeating the thing happening to the ex-president of some famous country on this planet.

People on bsky are surprised there is no mention of the Trump conviction confirmation on Warpcast. I thought my feed was just not tuned to such piece of news, but the trending feed has apparently nothing after a short doom-scroll session. Any opinion or interpretation or evidence-based facts?

Many people on bsky never heard of Farcaster and Warpcast. An opportunity to advertise? @dwr.eth https://bsky.app/profile/mmasnick.bsky.social/post/3ktqhizohdg2k

Would it be possible to let users select actual text in casts on mobile? There is this tendency in mobile apps to prevent selecting text. Many SNS apps like that, as well as web sites (used to it in a country where a lot of text has been *images* for decades to “protect” copywriting IP).
