Surveillance State: Toilet Cams in Primary Schools

- By TruePublica

Unfortunately, it’s not a new story – toilet camera’s in school toilets or changing rooms. The excuse being used is either to stop bullying or vandalism. And just like the surveillance state intrudes on every aspect of our lives due to ‘national security’, the panopticon architecture of life in Britain is basically over-reach by the state, a self-imposed paranoia common to everyday life in Britain.

China’s CRISPR babies: Read exclusive excerpts from the unseen original research

- By Antonio Regalado

Earlier this year a source sent MIT Technology Review a copy of an unpublished manuscript describing the creation of the first gene-edited babies, born last year in China. Today, we are making excerpts of that manuscript public for the first time. Titled “Birth of Twins After Genome Editing for HIV Resistance,” and 4,699 words long, the still unpublished paper was authored by He Jiankui, the Chinese biophysicist who created the edited twin girls. A second manuscript we also received discusses laboratory research on human and animal embryos.

Technology has advanced to the point that many Americans have artificial intelligence devices in their homes. But what the majority of the sleeping masses don’t realize, is that AI is watching us and judging us.

AI mind-reading tool produces video of human thoughts in real-time

- By David Rivers

A mind-reading tool powered by artificial intelligence has produced a staggering video of human thoughts in real-time. Russian researchers trained the programme to guess what people are thinking based on their brain waves.

- By Anthony Cuthbertson

The price of bitcoin has fallen to a six-month low following the second major crash in the space of just three days.

Japanese hotel Asahi Ryokan offers $1 rooms for guests who live-stream everything

- By IRINA IVANOVA

Visitors to Fukuoka, Japan, can get a hotel room at the bargain price of $1 — but there's a catch. To take advantage of the deal, visitors must agree to live-stream almost everything. That doesn't include using the bathroom, which is outside the range of the table-mounted camera, and the guests are permitted to turn out the lights during sleep, the Washington Post reported. Everything else is fair game for 24 hours.

DONALD TRUMP FACES PRESIDENTIAL CHALLENGE FROM TRANSHUMANIST CYBORG

- By Anthony Cuthbertson

Mr Istvan previously ran as a third-party candidate in the 2016 US elections for the Transhumanist Party but decided the Republican ticket would provide a better platform to promote his message that science and technology can profoundly transform both America and Americans.
