A bioterrorist attack which could wipe out 30 million people is becoming increasingly likely because it is easier than ever to create and spread deadly pathogens, Bill Gates has warned.
As reported by the New Yorker, the desire to live forever is as common today as it was in the ancient world when Gilgamesh tried to force the secret of immortality from the gods. Researchers across the country and around the world are trying to solve the problem of aging and chronic disease – and ultimately death – through a variety of techniques and technologies. Moreover, in the quest to live forever, we may be closer to our goal than ever before.

Facebook is encouraging users to report what they believe to be “fake news.”
The architect of the world wide web Sir Tim Berners-Lee today talked about some of his concerns for the internet over the coming years, including a nightmarish scenario where artificial intelligence (AI) could become the new ‘masters of the universe’ by creating and running their own companies.
In 2017, social media has just become another mundane part of life, but most people never stop to think of just how powerful it really is. The Arab Spring revolutions back in 2011 could not have happened without social media; since then governments have woken up to just how much of a threat social media can pose. Make no mistake, social media is a weapon, and it is a critical part of the arsenal that is being deployed to bring about a one world government.
This is the way the world ends: not with a bang, but with a paper clip. In this scenario, the designers of the world’s first artificial superintelligence need a way to test their creation. So they program it to do something simple and non-threatening: make paper clips. They set it in motion and wait for the results — not knowing they’ve already doomed us all.
Drone technology is now fully fledged with their functioning and majority of the failures are recovered such as a battery failure, handling the malfunction, hardware issues. It seems that drone will be the next helper and delivery person of the future. Tech giants are applying this technology for their multipurpose projects such as internet drone from Facebook and Google. Deliveries of medical equipments and medicines are also successfully tested by using these spectacular flying technologies. Now the situation has standing on that platform, where drones technologies by itself asks what else you want me to do, bring it on.
A sci-fi staple for decades, laser weapons are finally becoming reality in the US military, albeit with capabilities a little less dramatic than at the movies.
The first tests of Elon Musk’s revolutionary high-speed transport system could begin soon after Hyperloop One, one of 12 companies competing to make the idea a reality, completed its test track. The […]
A pair of tethered drones built by a local company will hover over the Boston Marathon starting line in Hopkinton for the first time as part of a high-tech security plan targeting low-tech terror attacks.
The idea of a robot that can learn and function on its own, without the need for any human help, might sound like the plot to the latest science fiction blockbuster. But […]
Are you familiar with the concept of a “smart city?” MasterCard, Big Data, and corporations alike are striving towards smart cities because when the governments meet their end, smart cities will be the hubs of the New World Order. Or at least, that’s according to Parag Khanna who has previously purposed that FEMA regions govern the US, and who actively supports technocracy.
The syringe slides in between the thumb and index finger. Then, with a click, a microchip is injected in the employee’s hand. Another “cyborg” is created. “The biggest benefit I think is […]
The Sexbot And Robot Revolutions: Cataclysms Colliding – Nationalism, race, and family are the only bulwarks that can stop the dystopian juggernaut, and that’s why the elite are in a frenzy to stump what Trump represents
There are two societal cataclysms set to collide in the West, and unless we foresee them, as CH has foreseen them, and actively prevent their efflorescence, the West is doomed. The Sexbot […]
Stealing debit card information using “skimmers” at gas pumps and ATMs is an old problem. But thieves are becoming more sophisticated at hiding the devices and getting around some of the fixes merchants have put in their way.
Connecticut could become the first US state to allow police to use drones equipped with deadly weapons if a bill opposed by civil libertarians becomes law. The bill, which was approved overwhelmingly […]
AI-powered bots assess the animals’ condition based on a number of inputs, and interact with farmers, reminding them about vaccination and feeding times, and gestation periods, in addition to providing additional tips […]
Harvard engineers who launched the world’s biggest solar geoengineering research program may get a dangerous boost from Donald Trump, environmental organizations are warning. Under the Trump administration, enthusiasm appears to be growing […]
Humans and computers are going through a transformative time, but there are still many more questions than answers. Nick Bostrom, Oxford Martin Programme Founder, and Gray Scott, futurist and technology expert debate the possible effects of this change.
A virtual private network (VPN) is a convenient way to protect your privacy by redirecting your online activity through secure remote servers. Free VPNs typically give you as little as 500MB per month, but Canadian provider Windscribe is giving new users an impressive 50GB every month for life.

Facebook, (i.e. Spybook) is opening a division of research with the NSA. And what are they researching? The use of mind-reading on social media. This sounds incredible, but it is unquestionably true. Here are the details.
Now the biometrics are becoming advanced enough to be able to measure the spacing between your eyes, the shapes of the ears, and other idiosyncrasies that are peculiar to each individual. But […]
Bill Kochevar, 56, was paralysed below his shoulders in a cycling accident eight years ago but can now grasp and lift objects after having two pill-sized electrodes implanted in his brain. The […]
A cell could be programmed, for example, with a so-called NOT logic gate. This is one of the simplest logic instructions: Do NOT do something whenever you receive the trigger. This study’s authors used this function to create cells that light up on command. Biologist Wilson Wong of Boston University, who led the research, refers to these engineered cells as “genetic circuits.”
A professor at the University of Texas thinks that “mission creep” could one day lead to the government listening in on private conversations in people’s homes via the new Google Home device.
The dangers of vaccines are real, yet most Americans refuse to believe this distressing fact. While the pharmaceutical industry, medical experts, and the government keep reassuring us that the shots are safe, […]
