📝 Pro- notes... and industrial

📌 Industrial robots today are programmed to perform specific and repetitive tasks, which limits their versatility; to make them perform different actions, they need to be reprogrammed by a person.

📌 Incorporating into industrial could enable them to learn autonomously from their own actions and the environment; they would thus learn to perform diversified tasks and decide in real-time which task to carry out.

📌 Developing -integrated capable of adapting and learning is no small challenge, especially for complex and dynamic work environments; one of the critical aspects is that robots can cause significant damage, including harm to people, if not properly controlled.

📌 The Covariant is precisely addressing this issue, currently focusing on the warehouse sector; to delve deeper, I recommend listening to the episode of "This Week in Startups," which I'm sharing at the end of this thread.

❓ Now, considering the potential developments of a like this, several questions come to mind; here are some:

🤔 If industrial were to become capable of autonomous learning and real-time , what are the ethical implications of granting them a degree of decision-making autonomy? How should we manage on a legal level the for actions taken by such robots?


@startupnews @philosophy @cogsci

🤔 of this kind could reduce the need for human in certain tasks and industries. What implications could arise? How should we rethink the right to ? What actions should and training institutions take today to prepare tomorrow's workers for a like this?


@startupnews @philosophy @cogsci

krishnadeltoso,
@krishnadeltoso@mastodon.world avatar

🤔 Considering that these can cause severe harm, how should the responsibilities of and developers be distributed in ensuring and control of such machines? What kinds of technologies and approaches should we develop to prevent accidents or abuses arising from their autonomy? How should we rethink the concept of safety in the ?

📌 Google Research, American Airlines, and Breakthrough Energy have collaborated to develop maps for contrail formation (the white trails seen behind flying airplanes) using artificial intelligence based on such as satellite images, meteorological data, and flight paths.

📌 The trade-off is that this approach could lead to a 2% increase in fuel consumption; however, the overall fuel impact on an airline's flights could still be limited to 0.3%.

❓ Now, a couple of among the many I have contemplated while considering this news from a perspective:


@startupnews @philosophy

🤔 How could the use of contrail maps evolve in the field of navigation and air traffic policies, and what work, economic, social, and environmental challenges might emerge from this evolution?

🤔 What could be the consequences of using in reducing contrail formation on potential climate impact disparities among different airlines or regions of the world?

Veilid Framework Overview:
Veilid is an innovative open-source, peer-to-peer, mobile-first, networked application framework. It bears conceptual similarities to IPFS and Tor but boasts faster speeds and is designed to offer services over a privately routed network. Interestingly, the framework allows the creation of fully-distributed applications without the need for a blockchain or a transactional layer. It can be integrated into user-centric applications or operated as a 'headless node' for those keen on expanding the network. Learn more about this groundbreaking framework at Veilid.
