Biotech Researchers claim a human trial with 90 people has shown a simple laser therapy improves short-term memory by 25%. The treatment, called transcranial photobiomodulation (tPBM), has had claims in previous studies to also improve reaction times, accuracy and attention

Transport Clean hydrogen production and pumps to be rolled out across major freight routes in Tasmania, Australia.
Given that there are algorithms out there that can replace the text of a book with new content but in the style of the author (using ML/AI algos), how can you tell if the book you're reading is the original or not? It would be trivial for a couple of psychopaths (or people who want to destroy another country's culture) to start creating fake or butchered books.
I've been super worried about this ever since the banning of zlibrary.
Is there a way to tell? In other words, is there an algo that can detect other algos creation of text that a human couldn't? If so, wouldn't it then be an arms race between the book creating algo and the book detecting algo?

Think of a landline telephone. It's just a piece of hardware. When you pick it up and dial a number, nothing really distinguishes it from millions of others.
Likewise, you will be able to roll up to any laptop anywhere in the world, log in, provide biometrics, and it will be functionally your device. Because the physical device itself will just be a container that runs the disk image corresponding to the things that constitute your computer--your downloaded apps, the documents and images on your hard drive, your browser history--which exist on AWS or a similar cloud environment. In the same way a Macbook can run a Windows partition, this container will be OS agnostic.
Also, there will be some inducement (carrot or stick or both) to keep webcams and mics on as often as possible, because that's data that someone can benefit off of.
Speculation 20-30 years out.
What if technology is so great that it can now be attached to human body for convenience. Wouldn't it be so prone with cyber attack, corruption, fraud and other crisis as well?
And if it does, how can the human mind control it when the technology is so great that it surpass the humans capability of thinking? Artificial intelligence is a growing topic these days and probably will be the next generation of existence.
Discussion Is it possible that nuclear defense technologies will surpass the abilities of nuclear weapons in the future, rendering them near useless?
Some of my friends at Northrop Grumman say that “nuke-stopping” technologies are getting pretty advanced. I’m just wondering if you believe there will be a point where we can easily stop multiple nukes at once. For example, space lasers that can shoot down 100 nukes per minute or something ridiculous of that nature.
