Well,, come the apocalypse, you're safe from zombies with mobility issues...

As long as the ammo holds out, yes.
I will NOT comply.

There are no "Socialists", no "Progressives", only Communists, with every negative image that totalitarianism might muster, demanding fealty and conformity to their views, with a legacy of 150,000,000 dead and counting.

Today I'm re-reading The Zombie Survival Guide.  One of the things that is covered in the sections on terrain types is how dangerous the ones with mobility issues (broken backs, missing legs, etc) are, because you are liable not to see them in high grass, shallow water, etc, since they will be crawling/dragging along the ground.

You need the sort of obstacle which will impale or otherwise cause them to lose that slithering mobility.

The Battle Over Artificial Intelligence

"https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/18/opinion/letters/artificial-intelligence.html"


Your reporting on the use of facial recognition in China for “minority identification” is a stark reminder that the battle over the future of artificial intelligence will not simply be about who gathers the top scientists or who is first to innovate. It will also be about who is able to preserve fundamental rights during a period of rapidly changing technology.

The White House has already made some progress on this front, highlighting American values, including privacy and civil liberties, in an executive order earlier this year, and backing an important international framework at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. But there is much more to be done.

The United States must work with other democratic countries to establish red lines for certain A.I. applications and ensure fairness, accountability and transparency as A.I. systems are deployed.

The administration should open the American policy process to ensure that the voice of civil society is heard. And the United States should be prepared to make oppressive uses of A.I. a trade issue that could trigger sanctions and more.

Coming of Age in the Age of AI: The First Fully Digital Generation

The first generation to grow up entirely in the 21st century will never remember a time before smartphones or smart assistants. They will likely be the first children to ride in self-driving cars, as well as the first whose healthcare and education could be increasingly turned over to artificially intelligent machines.

Futurists, demographers, and marketers have yet to agree on the specifics of what defines the next wave of humanity to follow Generation Z. That hasn’t stopped some, like Australian futurist Mark McCrindle, from coining the term Generation Alpha, denoting a sort of reboot of society in a fully-realized digital age.

The way things are going it's looking more like we've seen the last generation to grow up entirely.

They will become what they need to.  I have no idea what that will be though.

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.
