We can now use cells from dead people to create new life. But who gets to decide?

'Simana wants more people to start thinking about the possibility of their own eggs, sperm and embryos being used after their death. In the same way that we’re encouraged to consider organ donation, we should all be writing down whether we’d be happy to have our sex cells retrieved and used, she says. “Ideally we’d have people write a biological will,” she says.'

Lovely to hear this, even if their vision of the near future isn't so positive, if only they knew the rest of it all to come....

That's EXACTLY what I thought and felt like when I watched it Enig! 😄  Espcially that girl at the end that says "and such things"  Such a dignified, honest and noble form of communication.  Nice one . 👍

Will 2021 Be The Year Cyberpunk Style Takes Over China?
https://jingdaily.com/china-gen-z-cyperpunk-2077-balenciaga/

 

"Last week’s launch of the video game Cyberpunk 2077 stirred up enthusiasm among China’s youngsters, and it has turned cyberpunk from a subculture trend to a mainstream one almost overnight. The latter half of 2020 has set a tone for China that is disconnected from the rest of the world, and the need for escapism is continuing to grow. This development is good for the youth-oriented brands that have already tapped into the trend. That list includes Balenciaga, which just released its latest Fall 2021 collection in the form of the video game, and local sportswear brand Li-Ning, which has a cyberpunk-themed collaboration in the pipeline: a collaboration with Sorayama, a Japanese illustrator known for his detailed portrayal of female robots."

Rise of the Digital Surveillance State - Senate Speech - Australia

AMLnZu-qudAKwlHHdxtqDz3NhcAixpdzdD9_Lfh_

Australians are sleepwalking into a technocratic future as so-called “smart city” technology rolls out across the country. Invasive technology such as facial recognition cameras are now commonplace in Australian cities and along with digital ID and central bank digital currencies, Australians are staring at a CCP-style social credit future. We have already lived through the early stages. Watch as I speak in the Senate about our digital future:

Makes me so angry. AI for art or code should not be allowed.

 

Edit: Don't worry, I blurred the dodgy bit.

 

 

I tried  asking some coding questions of my own and the Javascript it produced worked ok but was probably not the way I would have written it myself.

 

However, there are other fun ways to use this AI bot ...

Then there's this one ...
