World’s First Haunted Object 3D Scanning Project is Confusing Ghosts, Producing Paranormally-Active Prints

By Martin Nelson on 06/17/2017

The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, the world’s only mobile museum of haunted artifacts, has launched the first-ever initiative to 3D scan and compile a database of paranormally-active objects. There’s just a couple problems: the project is confusing the ghosts and producing haunted 3D prints.

“In hindsight, I guess we should have anticipated this,” occult museum director Greg Newkirk says, “but when it comes to working with haunted artifacts in new, unexplored ways, you never know what’s going to happen. We’re attempting something that’s never been done before, laying the groundwork for future study of paranormally-active objects. There are going to be quirks we can’t see coming.”

Newkirk is referring to the unintended consequences of the Haunted Object 3D Scanning Initiative, an effort to build a comprehensive database of the world’s most haunted artifacts. Launched in February, the project has seen Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult founders Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews scanning cursed idols, self-immolating Ouija planchettes, drums used to summon voodoo-spirits, and even a haunted mask with a habit of kickstarting out-of-body experiences. Unsurprisingly, the project is the first of its kind, combining the study of supernaturally-influenced artifacts with cutting-edge technology. But now that the project is four months in, the museum curators are discovering that it’s hard to teach an ancient spirit new tricks.

Question: If AI takes over all driving chores, what happens to all of the police departments that depend upon making money off of human errors and deliberate acts?

What happens to all of the fire truck and ambulance drivers that respond to the results of human errors and deliberate acts?

Oh.... Wait..... They can go get coal mining jobs in West Virginia!



Semi-autonomous cars: No more stopping for red lights?

Date: June 16, 2017
Source: The Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR)

Cars could soon negotiate smart intersections without ever having to stop.

Sick of waiting at traffic lights? The semi-autonomous driving aids being fitted to many new cars could consign the red light to history, Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) researchers report. According to their modeling, a system in which each car crosses the intersection in its own virtual bubble of safe space, modulating its speed using adaptive cruise control, will result in smooth traffic flow in each direction.

In the city of the near future, traffic lights would be complemented by and then replaced with a communication beacon, explains Bo Yang from the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing, who led the work. The beacon gathers and transmits data about the distance and approach speed of vehicles nearing the intersection, which each car feeds into an algorithm that plots a safe course through without having to stop.

At the algorithm's heart is the concept of "adaptive repulsive force." The closer two cars' trajectory would bring them at an intersection, the stronger their repulsion and the greater the speed adjustment they make to pass each other safely.

Yang set out to reduce barriers to adoption of this system. "One of our most interesting findings is that the rules governing the necessary repulsion between vehicles is rather simple," he says. The result is a system that does not require much computing power at the beacon or in the vehicle itself.

Cars need not be fully self-driving, but rather simply able to brake and accelerate autonomously -- which cars fitted with smart cruise control can already do. The driver gives up control of the car's speed through the intersection but remains in charge of steering.

In Yang's simulations, the algorithm worked effectively even for relatively complex intersections. "In most cases, pre-emptive deceleration only slightly lowered the vehicle velocity, resulting in safe passage of each vehicle across the intersection without coming to a full stop at any point," Yang says.

The system's other advantage is that it could be phased in gradually. Initially, traffic lights would still be needed to help older cars pass through the intersection. As smarter cars become prevalent, the lights can switch off for more and more of the time until they are no longer needed at all. "Our simple algorithm only requires basic vehicle intelligence, but is also fully compatible with more intelligent vehicles that may come in the future," Yang adds.

Artificial intelligence and the coming health revolution

June 19, 2017 by Rob Lever

Your next doctor could very well be a bot. And bots, or automated programs, are likely to play a key role in finding cures for some of the most difficult-to-treat diseases and conditions.

Artificial intelligence is rapidly moving into health care, led by some of the biggest technology companies and emerging startups using it to diagnose and respond to a raft of conditions.

Consider these examples:

— California researchers detected cardiac arrhythmia with 97 percent accuracy on wearers of an Apple Watch with the AI-based Cariogram application, opening up early treatment options to avert strokes.

— Scientists from Harvard and the University of Vermont developed a machine learning tool—a type of AI that enables computers to learn without being explicitly programmed—to better identify depression by studying Instagram posts, suggesting "new avenues for early screening and detection of mental illness."

— Researchers from Britain's University of Nottingham created an algorithm that predicted heart attacks better than doctors using conventional guidelines.

While technology has always played a role in medical care, a wave of investment from Silicon Valley and a flood of data from connected devices appear to be spurring innovation.

"I think a tipping point was when Apple released its Research Kit," said Forrester Research analyst Kate McCarthy, referring to a program letting Apple users enable data from their daily activities to be used in medical studies.

McCarthy said advances in artificial intelligence has opened up new possibilities for "personalized medicine" adapted to individual genetics.

"We now have an environment where people can weave through clinical research at a speed you could never do before," she said.

Predictive analytics

AI is better known in the tech field for uses such as autonomous driving, or defeating experts in the board game Go.

But it can also be used to glean new insights from existing data such as electronic health records and lab tests, says Narges Razavian, a professor at New York University's Langone School of Medicine who led a research project on predictive analytics for more than 100 medical conditions.

Utah artist creates art from junk — and sells it all over the world

By Parker Atkinson
Published: June 19, 2017 11:15 a.m.

LEWISTON, Cache County — Malen Pierson grabs a rusty wrench from a pile of similarly oxidized junk and moves it deftly into place. After a couple of blinding flashes from the welding torch, it is no longer a wrench, but the side of a goat’s face.

The metal goat sculpture’s face is one of Pierson’s most popular pieces among his found-metal art — an art form he helped pioneer and popularize.

Pierson has been a professional, full-time artist for more than 20 years. His work has been purchased by a who’s-who list of celebrities that includes Johnny Depp, Queen Latifah, Robert Redford and Martha Stewart and can be found for sale in galleries across the world.

Many of Pierson’s big-time clients aren’t just interested in his art, but in befriending the artist as well. When he’s not fly-fishing with patrons in Bolivia, attending World Series games or shooting $100,000 shotguns with English royalty, the award-winning, globe-trotting artist lives in this tiny Northern Utah town, population: 1,759.

“I love small towns,” he said, explaining how the privacy of a small community allows the outgoing and sociable 48-year-old artist to more easily focus on his work.

Pierson's home — and backyard workshop — are just a few blocks from Lewiston's Main Street. Colorful skis line the fence around an old '20s-era train station that Pierson converted into a house, where he lives with his wife and two teenage children. A tall, rusted metal sculpture of a child swinging in the hands of his parents sits in the front yard, and beyond a similarly artistic-looking front gate, a massive 12-foot metal fly with a World War II-era bombshell for a body and satellite dishes for wings can be seen perched atop Pierson’s workshop.

The backyard is a gallery of its own.

Finished sculptures surround the workshop: an imposing, life-size bison, welded together from conveyor belt chains and other parts, stands near several moose sculptures, made up of old tractor seats, pitchforks, hammers, monkey wrenches and an assortment of other rusty old bits of metal left behind, now reclaimed and made into art.

'I spoke to aliens' Woman tells of bizarre encounter after UFO 'tailed her car'

A WOMAN shockingly claims to have made contact with aliens after a bizarre incident in which a "flaming UFO" reportedly followed her car.

By Jon Austin
PUBLISHED: 10:38, Tue, Jun 20, 2017

The woman said she and her 10-year-old son encountered an object following them along a rural roadway, near Mexico in Missouri.

She claimed a flaming UFO followed above her car before shooting off and stopping in front of them.

It was at that point she attempted to speak to its alleged crew.

In a report to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), based in the US which investigates UFO reports, she said: "As I was driving north, I noticed ahead of me, and to the left of the road, a fiery image about treetop level.

“The fiery image moved from its location left of the road and instantly appeared on the right side of the road.

"I knew then it was a UFO due to how quickly it manoeuvred direction. I was then driving east with the UFO following me to my right – about 100 feet higher than my van – and it stayed maybe two car lengths ahead of me.

"The UFO seemed to be traveling the same speed as I was, which by then I had probably slowed to about 40 mph.

“After about 30-45 seconds of following us, it instantaneously appeared about one-quarter mile ahead and to the left side of the road. It was stopped and hovered above a grove of trees.”

After about four to five minutes of wondering what to do, the witness decided to attempt to communicate with the object.

She said: "I said, ‘I know that you can hear me because you all are a lot more intelligent and advanced than we are, so please just go on and leave us alone.’”

After about 10 seconds, the UFO moved away at “lightning speed in an upward and south-easterly direction” and disappeared from view.

She added: "“The entire time of the sighting, I encountered no traffic in either direction. However, as soon as it disappeared, there was traffic again.

"I have since regretted that I didn’t try to make better communication because I would like to communicate with them. Evidently, they were seeking me out, but I just had no idea of their intent.”

But she did get a view at the UFO.

She said: “It was disc-shaped with a seemingly darker band around the centre of it and a lot of fire from the underneath.

"Either the flames below were so bright that they illuminated the craft or the moonlight was such that I couldn’t get a good view of it (or both).”

The woman sent her report to MUFON 40 years after the incident in June 1977.

Missouri MUFON State Section Director Charles Frieden is investigating the claims.

KFC Chicken Sandwich's Balloon Flight to Near-Space Is Delayed

By Calla Cofield, Space.com Staff Writer
June 20, 2017

The launch of a stratospheric balloon carrying a fast-food chicken sandwich to the edge of space has been delayed until Thursday (June 22).

The sandwich's four-day flight is a promotional stunt for Kentucky Fried Chicken, but it will serve as a valuable test for World View Enterprises, the company developing high-altitude balloons for applications ranging from weather monitoring to tourism. This is the first long-duration flight of the company's Stratollite balloon vehicle.
