Good news for EU farmers, and us

Industrialised farming, here I use an over simplified definition, where you have a corporation owning massive large scale farming operations, is not a good idea. A corporation is geared towards profit. Profit first, is never good for us or the planet.

Planet, then people, then profit – that’s the right way to a sustainable future for farming (fishing, lumber, [insert anything you like here…]).

It’s great to see the EU recognising that it’s made mistakes and that they are going to rectify these to help support small scale farming. This will help slow down the decline and loss of these critically important farms and families from our communities.

For more insight, here is a great article form The Guardian.

AI as a ‘hacker’

Excellent article by Bruce Schneier about the unintended consequences of allowing AI to “hack”. This is a bigger issue than most realise, take the time to read this article to get a better understanding of the issue and the possible outcomes.

If you don’t have enough to worry about already, consider a world where AIs are hackers.

Hacking is as old as humanity. We are creative problem solvers. We exploit loopholes, manipulate systems, and strive for more influence, power, and wealth. To date, hacking has exclusively been a human activity. Not for long.

As I lay out in a report I just published, artificial intelligence will eventually find vulnerabilities in all sorts of social, economic, and political systems, and then exploit them at unprecedented speed, scale, and scope. After hacking humanity, AI systems will then hack other AI systems, and humans will be little more than collateral damage.
