Yes: a flying, jet-powered motorcycle
As spec’ed out, the commercial speeder will weigh 231 lbs and be powered by four jet engines fueled with kerosene, diesel or Jet-A fuel. An ultralight version of the speeder will fly 60mph and won’t require a pilot’s license; alternatively, an experimental version of the craft will be able to fly over 150mph, but will require a formal license to fly. That aircraft should also have 30 minutes of flight time with 1200lbs of max thrust and a flight ceiling of 15,000 feet, though JetPack fully admits that most of its customers won’t need that…

How AI Will Rewire Us
Nicholas A. Christakis, Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science at Yale and author of Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society, believes AI is the only general purpose technology (GPT) that will fundamentally change our relations towards each other. If you look at any other GPT – the steam engine, electricity, the internet – these have changed everything around us except our “love, friendship, cooperation, and teaching” – what Christakis calls our evolutionary social suite. In this Atlantic piece, he explores how AI will be the first GPT to affect our social suite. Christakis noticed some peculiar things at his Yale lab. For one, when you include a cheerful bot who admits to occasional mistakes in a group assignment, the humans in the group work better together, vs. groups with bland robots. This holds true in larger experiments, with thousands of participants: “groups with mistake-prone bots consistently outperformed groups containing bots that did not make mistakes”. ~ Joly MacFie
John Gilmore **Copyright seizure approaching** SpaCCS 2019 CFP (10+SIs): The 12th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage
Don’t submit your paper to this conference! When researchers refuse to
supply their papers to the publishers who extort monopoly fees from
academic librarians, they have found the easiest way to tear down these
If you submit any paper to this conference, you will be forced
to assign your entire copyright in the paper to “Springer Nature
Switzerland AG”, now and forever, for their profit and your loss
and the public’s loss (see below).
Jun Feng is a program chair. He should know to warn authors that
the whole conference is a scam on academic authors, which steals their
copyrights in order to extract large fees from academic libraries. But
perhaps he did not mention this because he’s helping to run the scam.
I recommend publishing your work in Open Access conferences and journals in which (1) you are free to retain your copyright and control your
rights, and (2) the public is free to read your paper without paying
exhorbitant fees to a walled-garden publisher that prevents public
access to your scholarship. See
For example, the USENIX
Association runs many respected conferences and does Open Access
publication of their proceedings (https://www.usenix.org/
). The Public
Library of Science journals are also Open Access
). Open access publishing increases your impact,
because all potential readers can actually read your paper. Many
funders and academic institutions *require* that your work be published
with open access, because they have seen how the academic publishing
monopoly has damaged academic libraries (and science in general).
