counterpoint: there is not good reason to believe we're on a path towards full-fledged mind reading

it's about as inevitable as flying cars, level five autonomous vehicles, and human intellect general purpose AI

if the legislation is to get out in front of more techno-charlatanism like people using FMRI in place of polygraphs, with the same kind of accuracy, but an all new veneer of respectability, then it's fine.

they desperately wanted to tell a story. the actual story is a single paragraph halfway through the article, but presumably they're paid by the word

yesterday i learned that the cyberpunk genre and its progenitors are racist because the aesthetic leans heavily on orientalism due to 80s western fears of eastern dominance

i learned this because someone in the cyberpunk 2077 thread in games asked a CDPR dev who posts there why they made the game

i got the game on sale and started posting there just to bullshit about it as i played thorough but about 2/3rds of that thread are weirdly aggressive about everything, the other third are just weird

the dev has not responded, presumably because they have sense enough not to make a public statement on that subject on behalf of their entire company on the something awful dot com forums

Ornamental Dingbat posted:

So their infotainment systems just execute whatever code it receives? That's awesome.

I'm guessing this is some feature that was built in for the factory or dealerships to OTAP firmware updates?

no, and also no.

it's an image file for ostensibly album art, being broadcast OTA by the station. the infotainment unit caches the broadcast image data and tries to read and display it, and fails due to bad error handling, and then reboots. immediately post-boot it finds the file in cache and attempts to display it, etc.

Oh yeah, I forgot HD Radio was able to transmit album art along with the other metadata. I haven't listened to the actual radio in a car new enough to have that feature.

i had managed to go about a decade without listening to the radio in a car, so i was surprised to see it in my business partner's new hyundai

I picked up a dot matrix vfd at Active Surplus one time but of course had no controller chip or any idea how to make it work. was neat to look at though

if you don't mind the lazy man's complete overkill, you can drive it from an rpi, probably without any adapters

man, i miss active surplus a lot. i used to go down a couple times a month just to wander around and see if anything caught my eye for a project. above all electronics is gone now too

it's still neat to see it in a holdable package that can lob a bullet-sized payload a modest distance. [s]I feel like one of those youtube maker channels made a[s/] that channel was arcflash labs and the gr-1 anvil is their latest model. maybe they were hiding the power line, or the distance was smaller, but their earlier videos had better speed and performance

it's neat for sure, it's just funny seeing something that's been a perennial student project for like 30 year as "cyberpunk"
