GPS spoofing makes ships in Russian waters think they're on land

USATODAY

Researchers are calling these "mass GPS interferences" and they appear to be linked to the intentional transmission of false GPS signals to provide incorrect time or location information, possibly to veil certain facilities from attack. Putin has long been rumored to have a lavish secret estate on the Black Sea coast near Gelendzhik, where researchers found one instance of GPS spoofing. The report's authors initially started to examine instances of GPS misdirection after a vessel master in the Black Sea reported his GPS showing him to be at the Gelendzhik airport, in southern Russia, about 25 miles from his real location, said Dana Goward, president of the non-profit Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation. The authors of the report found three specific instances of GPS spoofing in which ships' GPS-based navigation systems told them they were many miles from their location: at Russia's Gelendzhik Airport and Sochi International Airport near the Black Sea and St. Petersburg Airport near the North Sea.

Will AI become a basic human right? Marc Benioff thinks it should

The backdrop for Benioff's comments was debate around the impact of technology and innovation on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Benioff cited recent comments made by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the effect that the country that controls mastery of AI can control the world. In San Francisco, we have taxis without taxi drivers, buses without bus drivers, trucks without truck drivers, cargo ships without crews. There was a wider sustainable development and innovation debate that went on, which we'll pick up on tomorrow, but the idea of AI as a basic human right is a very interesting topic in its own right.

The author of Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century, Singer is a leading expert on 21st-century security issues and has even written a novel about what the next world war might look like. I asked him if he thinks the race for AI superiority might lead to actual conflict. Elon Musk versus Vladimir Putin is not the greatest of ways to frame the debate. There are three forces driving this arms race: geopolitics, science, and capitalism.

But Musk's recent statement also brings to light the name'Russia'.


Elon Musk is wrong about AI

Mashable

And now he's got all of us worrying about artificial intelligence triggering World War III. Musk's comments, which were triggered by a global AI supremacy statement made by Russian President Vladimir Putin, were more of a feint at AI's possible role in the next, big global war. Can't we build and celebrate AI before running away in terror? I welcome and agree with every bit of his oversight inclinations, but please can't we build and celebrate AI before running away in terror?

Another more political warning was recently broadcast on VoA: Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking to a group of Russian students, called artificial intelligence "not only Russia's future but the future of the whole of mankind… The one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world. One that would regulate but not thwart the already growing global AI business.
