So here is De Blasio’s plan for the Brooklyn-Queens streetcar. And I don’t hate it.

I definitely hated it a few months ago when this plan was being thrown around, but this model fixes a bunch of the problems that people were pointing out. That little divot to provide service coverage to Red Hook is amazing - that neighborhood has been cut off from rail transit for 70 years, and a streetcar would provide access to all the industrial and maritime jobs on the hook as well as transit service for 6,000 otherwise-isolated residents of the biggest public housing development in Brooklyn (the line would also serve the Whitman, Ingersoll, Astoria, and Queensbridge Houses, all of which could use some transit access). And Sunset Park makes a great anchor. It looks like it extends to the Brooklyn Army Terminal, which provides rail service directly to Lutheran Hospital, and even walkable from Bay Ridge. Plus access to jobs in the Navy Yard, Sunset Park Industrial Yard, and LIC…

Not saying it’s perfect. For example, it’s a big problem if the city pays for all of this, or if this takes money away from SAS, or if banking on waterfront real estate rising in price amounts to a ponzi scheme method of paying for this system…but it’s something, and it’s better than the plans that were being thrown about over the summer.

If killer robots arrive, the Terminator will be the least of our problems

By Matt McFarland, Washington Post, January 25, 2016

Autonomous weapons experts sounded the alarm last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, cautioning that unless governments act to limit these weapons’ risks, it may be too late.

Autonomous weapons haven’t surfaced in the mainstream but loom on the horizon as the technology behind them is young, but rapidly advancing. Based on existing technology, the weapons could be able to independently find and kill enemies, so that a country doesn’t put its humans in harm’s way. The weapons may arrive in a variety of forms, including small drones or robot soldiers.

“Being attacked by an army of Terminators is a piece of cake when compared to being attacked by this kind of weapon,” said Stuart Russell, a computer science professor at the University of California-Berkeley. “We’re [talking] about systems that weigh less than an ounce, that can fly faster than a person can run, can blow holes in their heads with one gram of shape-charge explosive, and can be launched in the millions.”

Russell and Angela Kane, a senior fellow at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation, warned that time is running out to prevent us from opening Pandora’s Box. They estimate that the problem needs to be addressed within two years to prevent a global arms race toward autonomous weapons. The fear is that autonomous weapons could become akin to a new, more powerful AK-47–an affordable, easily obtained weapon of global destruction. These weapons wouldn’t require rare and expensive materials, which help to limit access to nuclear weapons. Russell and Kane called for scientists, governments and the artificial intelligence industry to convene quickly.

“Do we really want to put the power to wipe out everyone in New York City in the hands of individuals who just need to be able to afford to buy those weapons?,” said Russell, who described autonomous weapons being capable of targeting individuals based on their age or style of clothing.

That is one reason experts are calling for an autonomous weapons convention similar to what the world did to address biological and chemical weapons. Russell’s group, the Future of Life Institute, hopes a ban on the weapons will head off a global arms race to develop autonomous weapons.

So far little has been done to address the risk.

While some may take solace in the fact that autonomous weapons aren’t fully developed, Russell is concerned that some bad actors won’t care.

“Do you think ISIS needs their drones to be that reliable in discriminating civilians from soldiers? No,” Russell said, “80 percent is pretty good for military equipment. So I think that would be very easily achievable with present-day technology.”
