Your link was unclickable. I mean it was clickable but didn't go anywhere. In my browser at least. I made it so that was not the case.

Unrelated idle thought: what kind of weapon personal protection equipment would be suitable for incapacitating protecting yourself from an autonomous vehicle?

How long before someone shoots one of these things?

After a quick search, this is a CocaCola Freestyle machine, a fancy soda machine designed to mix flavors, with preset flavors and user savable ones on their app, like an advanced version of what everyone did as a kid to make Cola diet orange sprite aide.

Cocacola“The team developed the touch-free offering in just over a week as coronavirus lockdowns took effect, building off the Coca-Cola Freestyle Operating System (FOS) introduced in 2019. “This is a fully connected platform, which means we could use existing software system to create this experience without having to rewrite tons of code,” Connor explains.”

So apparently they developed their own OS for a soda machine? This all sound all oh so hackable. We’re just one bored hacker away from every Freestyle soda machine suddenly playing the Star Wars theme with its syrup nozzles while trying to steal credentials from everyone in bluetooth range.

It's probably just a Linux variant with a few customizations, but yes to the rest. :)

Scientists use AI to create drug regime for rare form of brain cancer in children | Medical research | The Guardian

Quote:
“DIPG is a rare and aggressive childhood brain cancer, and survival rates have not changed over the past 50 years so we desperately need to find new treatments for this disease,” said Chris Jones, professor of paediatric brain tumour biology at the ICR.

“Our study demonstrates just how much AI can bring to drug discovery for cancers like DIPG, in proposing new treatment combinations that would not have been obvious to people.

“The AI system suggested using a combination of two existing drugs to treat some children with DIPG – one to target the ACVR1 mutation, and the other to sneak the first past the blood brain barrier. The treatment extended survival when we tested it in a mouse model, and we have already started testing it out in a small number of children.
This is great!

Our next project is to invite your like-aged friends to your house and have them make lists of "things that make them happy" without the consent of their parents or guardians.

Next week, we will talk about our fears, insecurities, family issues, and other concerns.
