On the night of May 09 2018the earth moved and Malaysia is never to be the same. Malaysians have never seen such an event and were overwhelmed with joy. Two weeks have gone by and we are now faced with the rubbles and garbage underneath the mangled wreckage of the rotten past administration’s ship.

The clean up action by the new government begun almost immediately the next day. It started with assessing the damage and reports of the various parts of the government machinery came in one by one. The list is long and even Santa Claus shook his head in disbelief when compared to his annual Christmas present delivery list.

Simply put, the country was robbed of its assets and finances, and are now literally broke and left with a humongous amount of debt, which is impossible to ever be repaid… anytime.

The new government swiftly put together a couple of think tank groupscomprising of the nation’s crème de la crème to help and advice on how to lift the country out of its predicament.

Please allow me to give my two-cent opinion.

Its the system stupid.

Malaysia inherited a filthy rotten system from her colonial masters in her pursuance of “independence” 61 years ago and without much thinking (then and even now) accepted it as the only way to be independent, to build and run a nation. After all the leaders then had nothing, zilch to go by and didn’t know any better (how to run a country/company). The rest as they say is history.

May 09 2018, 61 years later we’re left in a worse position than when we were colonized. The freedom we were shouting and dreaming of was just that – a dream. It is in fact a nightmare.

There is only ONE way to get out of this nightmare.

No. Repairs and tweaking won’t work. Trust me.

How do you mend a broken flimsy system which was designed to break?

We must reset and boot into a completely NEW system, which has never been done before and (I know) which will cringe even the best political science professors, economists, and politicians. YES they will faint.

What caused the disaster?

Everybody shouted “CORRUPTION!”.

They are going after the corrupt ex PM and his forty thieves. Rightly so!

Will that solve the problem?

No. How about a revolution? Definitely a no no. Its a vicious cycle.

Corruption is the symptom. The disease is called “Centralization” and the only treatment is de-centralization

How?

Technological Change

Have you heard of Blockchain?

What is blockchain?

How Blockchain Technology is Changing the World

Now though, perhaps more than ever before, the future is clouded in uncertainty. No one really knows what the world will truly look like in ten, twenty, fifty years. Unfortunately, this often leads a lot of people to believe it will be fraught with distrust, turmoil and maybe even a bit of madness.

As our world evolves, so do the breakthroughs that help meet those fears head on. And with technologies like the blockchain reconfiguring the way we interact with one another, the future may well be a very bright place.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

See…I told you people will cringe!

If you’ve been following the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency developments and news you’ll find that ALL the governments and banksters in the world are against it and for a good reason. Behind/underneath Bitcoin is Blockchain, which will decentralize every Federal government and the dreaded Central Banks.

I will not drag this essay into the nitty-gritties of this technology and leave you to read and research it…and perhaps will see that it is the ONLY way forward.

On a final note I suggest you also find and learn more about Quantum Computing, which, believe me will change the world as you know it.

Will the new government Pakatan Harapan be willing?

AI Will Be an ‘Immortal Dictator’


Elon Musk Worries That AI Research Will Create an ‘Immortal Dictator’

Space.Com

elon

Imagine your least-favorite world leader. (Take as much time as you need.)

Now, imagine if that person wasn’t a human, but a network of millions of computers around the world. This digi-dictator has instant access to every scrap of recorded information about every person who’s ever lived. It can make millions of calculations in a fraction of a second, controls the world’s economy and weapons systems with godlike autonomy and — scariest of all — can never, ever die.

This unkillable digital dictator, according to Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, is one of the darker scenarios awaiting humankind’s future if artificial-intelligence research continues without serious regulation. [Super-Intelligent Machines: 7 Robotic Futures]

“We are rapidly headed toward digital superintelligence that far exceeds any human, I think it’s pretty obvious,” Musk said in a new AI documentary called “Do You Trust This Computer?” directed by Chris Paine (who interviewed Musk previously for the documentary “Who Killed The Electric Car?”). “If one company or a small group of people manages to develop godlike digital super-intelligence, they could take over the world.”

Humans have tried to take over the world before. However, an authoritarian AI would have one terrible advantage over like-minded humans, Musk said.

“At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die,” Musk added. “But for an AI there would be no death. It would live forever, and then you’d have an immortal dictator, from which we could never escape.”

And, this hypothetical AI-dictator wouldn’t even have to be evil to pose a threat to humans, Musk added. All it has to be is determined.

“If AI has a goal and humanity just happens to be in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it. No hard feelings,” Musk said. “It’s just like, if we’re building a road, and an anthill happens to be in the way. We don’t hate ants, we’re just building a road. So, goodbye, anthill.”

Those who follow news from the Musk-verse will not be surprised by his opinions in the new documentary; the tech mogul has long been a vocal critic of unchecked artificial intelligence. In 2014, Musk called AI humanity’s “biggest existential threat,” and in 2015, he joined a handful of other tech luminaries and researchers, including Stephen Hawking, to urge the United Nations to ban killer robots. He has said unregulated AI poses “vastly more risk than North Korea” and proposed starting some sort of federal oversight program to monitor the technology’s growth.

“Public risks require public oversight,” he tweeted. “Getting rid of the FAA [wouldn’t] make flying safer. They’re there for good reason.”

“Do You Trust This Computer?” focuses on the growing public health and safety concerns linked to the rise of AI, and contains interviews with many other tech moguls, researchers and Erica the creepy news-casting robot.

The ‘Dumb Fucks’ are moaning but won’t #Deletefacebook


merahza on Steemit

Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook for dumb fucks :

Zuckerberg explained to a friend that his control of Facebook gave him access to any information he wanted on any Harvard student:

Zuck: yea so if you ever need info about anyone at harvard

Zuck: just ask

Zuck: i have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, sns

Friend: what!? how’d you manage that one?

Zuck: people just submitted it

Zuck: i don’t know why

Zuck: they “trust me”

Zuck: dumb fucks

Its pretty clear ain’t it?

A thief is a thief and stealing is his preoccupation.

In this case, Zuckerberg didn’t have to steal as YOU (dumb fucks) served it (your complete data) to him on a silver platter.

Replying to the dumb fucks in the current Cambridge Analytica scandal:

ZUCKERBERG HITS USERS WITH THE HARD TRUTH: YOU AGREED TO THIS

…and he’s right about that as I’ve twitted earlier:

Of course its YOU.

You and many won’t dare to #deletefacebook for all the dumb reasons:

The Problem With #DeleteFacebook

and stop moaning!

#deletefacebook if you dare!

Elon Musk Deletes SpaceX, Tesla Pages Amid #deletefacebook Challenge


Sputnik

Following a scandal, caused by recent Facebook data breach, and the social media outrage with people deleting their accounts at the website, Elon Musk decided to join the #deletefacebook movement and delete Facebook accounts of his car company Tesla and rocket company SpaceX, which had more than 5 million followers combined.

The visionary and multi-billionaire, who has recently launched a red roadster into space, has accepted a trending social media challenge by removing pages of both of his companies from Facebook.

Facebook is in hot water right now after it emerged that third party organizations, such as data and political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica, had access to private information about Facebook users.

Responding to messages during a Twitter storm caused by the data breach, Elon Musk said that he didn’t even know that there is a SpaceX page on Facebook and agreed to delete it. “What’s Facebook?” Elon replied to a tweet with a trending hashtag #deletefacebook.

It’s horrifying how much they know

An anonymous Facebook employee has explained in a new interview with The Guardian what it’s like to be under investigation by Facebook’sinternal investigations team.

‘They’ll squash you like a bug’: how Silicon Valley keeps a lid on leakers

‘It’s horrifying how much they know’: An anonymous Facebook employee explained what it’s like to go face to face with Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘secret police’

fb

One day last year, John Evans (not his real name) received a message from his manager at Facebook telling him he was in line for a promotion. When they met the following day, she led him down a hallway praising his performance. However, when she opened the door to a meeting room, he came face to face with members of Facebook’s secretive “rat-catching” team, led by the company’s head of investigations, Sonya Ahuja.

The interrogation was a technicality; they already knew he was guilty of leaking some innocuous information to the press. They had records of a screenshot he’d taken, links he had clicked or hovered over, and they strongly indicated they had accessed chats between him and the journalist, dating back to before he joined the company.

“It’s horrifying how much they know,” he told the Guardian, on the condition of anonymity. “You go into Facebook and it has this warm, fuzzy feeling of ‘we’re changing the world’ and ‘we care about things’. But you get on their bad side and all of a sudden you are face to face with [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg’s secret police.”

The public image of Silicon Valley’s tech giants is all colourful bicycles, ping-pong tables, beanbags and free food, but behind the cartoonish facade is a ruthless code of secrecy. They rely on a combination of Kool-Aid, digital and physical surveillance, legal threats and restricted stock units to prevent and detect intellectual property theft and other criminal activity. However, those same tools are also used to catch employees and contractors who talk publicly, even if it’s about their working conditions, misconduct or cultural challenges within the company.

While Apple’s culture of secrecy, which includes making employees sign project-specific NDAs and covering unlaunched products with black cloths, has been widely reported, companies such as Google and Facebook have long put the emphasis on internal transparency.

Zuckerberg hosts weekly meetings where he shares details of unreleased new products and strategies in front of thousands of employees. Even junior staff members and contractors can see what other teams are working on by looking at one of many of the groups on the company’s internal version of Facebook.

“When you first get to Facebook you are shocked at the level of transparency. You are trusted with a lot of stuff you don’t need access to,” said Evans, adding that during his induction he was warned not to look at ex-partners’ Facebook accounts.

“The counterbalance to giving you this huge trusting environment is if anyone steps out of line, they’ll squash you like a bug.”

Technology is hijacking our minds and society.

A group of former Google and Facebook employees have created a group called the Center for Humane Technology, to raise alarms about technology hijacking our minds.

Early Facebook and Google Employees Form Coalition to Fight What They Built

SAN FRANCISCO — A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies they helped build.

The cohort is creating a union of concerned experts called the Center for Humane Technology. Along with the nonprofit media watchdog group Common Sense Media, it also plans an anti-tech addiction lobbying effort and an ad campaign at 55,000 public schools in the United States.

“The largest supercomputers in the world are inside of two companies — Google and Facebook — and where are we pointing them?” Mr. Harris said. “We’re pointing them at people’s brains, at children.”

“How a handful of tech companies control billions of minds every day”

From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they’re all competing for one thing: your attention.

Together, we can can get technology platforms to stop hijacking our minds and start putting our well-being first.
