A lot of videos on YouTube complain about how China’s bike sharing had become a problem since the sidewalks are littering with unused bikes. This gave me an idea, why not replicating China’s bike sharing problem into something good for car drivers! Imagine cars could be available everywhere so everyone can use their smartphone to unlock, pay, and drive away for a day. After a person is done with the car, he or she can just park the car in any parking lot nearby.
Of course, car sharing might come with more problems for the car operators/lenders than the car renters because cars are more expensive to maintain. Also, car operators need to make sure each car needs to be covered by insurance policy. This could also get rather expensive for the car operators. Nonetheless, if someone could use some good math skill or an artificial intelligence algorithm to figure out the bottom line, then I guess if the bottom line is good then there shouldn’t be a problem to allow car sharing en masse.
A Chinese news agency Xinhua had just unleashed a world first news anchor AI presenter which based on a real human’s facial expressions. You could easily tell the speech is spoken by AI since the voice is quite digitized. Anyhow, I think they could as well make the voice seems more human-like if they choose.
I wonder if someone else out there is watching this video and has an idea that what if we could also get rid of real actors by using this technology, right? I think it’s possible in the future that we could use AI to replace real human actors! Nonetheless, I could also foresee the possibility of using this technology to fabricate and frame a good person in a scandal!
In the video right after the break, the video suggests China is planning a mission for Mars in 2020. I assume they’re planning to send taikonauts to Mars in 2020 since the video is about how they had built a Mars simulation base for taikonauts on earth. I think this is amazing! Sending humans to Mars would be a new next biggest achievement for humans outside of earth! I can’t wait to see this happens in 2020!
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad thinks that the richer the Chinese get, they will not accept the domination of the Dollar. He thinks that China may force the world to trade in Yuan. This is certainly a scary thing for the United States!
If China could force the world to trade in Yuan, people like me who are living in the United States would have to face many scary outcomes of a much weaker Dollar. Just imagine if the world decides to drop the U.S. Dollar as the reserve currency, the United States then has to worry about the balance of trade even more than ever before.
A country in some ways is not that different than a normal household. Besides getting loans, what you make is what you have got to spend. Nonetheless, a normal household got bills to pay, and so what you make is what you have got to save somehow. Without enough saving, you don’t have enough money to spend. Living beyond one’s means will get one into huge debts.
Dr. Mahathir Mohamad hints that if China forces the world to abandon Dollar for Yuan, the United States won’t have enough gold and whatever to pay back debts and could declare bankruptcy overnight. I’m an American and so I don’t want to see something like this to occur, but we’re not Chinese and so we can’t really know what the Chinese would do when they get even richer.
Check out the video right after the break to see Dr. Mahathir Mohamad — current Malaysia’s prime minister — speaks on how the Chinese may drop the Dollar in the near future and force the world to trade in Yuan.
Isn’t it natural that soon Artificial Intelligence (AI) would steal jobs from soldiers? We all know that AI had beaten best Chess and Go players at their games. We also know that AI also had beaten best video gamers in video games. This means the responsiveness and the intelligence parts of the AI could be used in war scenarios to outdo the human counterparts.
I won’t be surprised to see the future where many wars would deploy AI for automation of submarines, tanks, jets, missiles, and so much more. The video right after the break suggests that China is developing fully automated submarines with AI capability to outdo foes’ submarines and surface ships in a war.
