United Airlines cockpit access codes leaked online

The Independent - Tech

The passcodes securing cockpit doors on United Airlines aircraft may have been leaked to the public. Over the weekend, United Airlines owner United Continental Holdings informed staff that passcodes and safety information had been posted online by a flight attendant. According to the company, it was a mistake rather than the result of a cyber security breach. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph. The giant human-like robot bears a striking resemblance to the military robots starring in the movie'Avatar' and is claimed as a world first by its creators from a South Korean robotic company Waseda University's saxophonist robot WAS-5, developed by professor Atsuo Takanishi and Kaptain Rock playing one string light saber guitar perform jam session A man looks at an exhibit entitled'Mimus' a giant industrial robot which has been reprogrammed to interact with humans during a photocall at the new Design Museum in South Kensington, London Electrification Guru Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart talks about the electric Jaguar I-PACE concept SUV before it was unveiled before the Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California, U.S The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar.


United Airlines incident video could have broken flight provider's rules, but not the law

The Independent - Tech

A video of a passenger forcibly ejected from a United Airlines flight has been condemned across the world. It shows a man being dragged off a plane, sustaining injuries as in the process, apparently because the airline wanted to make space for it own passengers. But some have chosen instead to focus on filming of the video itself -- even claiming that the people who should actually be punished are the people that recorded it. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

Mobile phones could soon work properly on London Underground

The Independent - Tech

Tube users could soon get phone signal underground, it's been reported. TfL is said to be in talks with telecommunications groups, and could offer full mobile coverage on London Underground after next week's general election. Commuters can already access the internet on sections of the tube network by connecting to Virgin Media's Wi-Fi service, but it isn't especially practical.

Uber to launch flying cars to replace taxis, suggests everyone will use them in the future

The Independent - Tech

Uber is to launch flying cars to replace its taxis. The company hopes to have people flying around on special platforms that can take off vertically and carry people to their destination, the company has said in a major press conference. The flying vehicles will be made available at a similar cost to the existing UberX service and eventually be much cheaper than owning a traditional or flying vehicle, Uber head of product Jeff Holden said. The I.F.O. is fuelled by eight electric engines, which is able to push the flying object to an estimated top speed of about 120mph.

#artificialintelligence

Today's cars negatively affect our climate, our time, our physical abilities, our finances and our living and working environments. Coupled with the safety aspect of driving, which relies on a person performing well, human error (including, but not limited to, boredom, limited reaction times, limited attention span, tiredness, mood) has amounted to the cause of 90% of road accidents. The International Journal of Intelligent Unmanned Systems recently published a paper discussing the management of single and multilane roads with driverless cars. It argues, by using intelligent systems, such as radar, laser, GPS, odomotry and computer vision, that the 90% of road accidents mentioned above can be eliminated altogether. It also states that by embedding Spatial Grasp Language (SGL), the resulting infrastructure can mediate traffic increases by slowing down and'pre-empting' traffic hotspots, as well as navigating past broken down vehicles safely, changing lanes and overtaking slower vehicles.
