need into your own. ah ah no, he didn't still have the headline. so now to farrah the world health organization has warned governments against easing corporate restrictions to food. several countries in europe for relaxing rules, despite concerns about the highly contagious delta variance. part of the countries of the america, we still have nearly 1000000 cases. week 1000000 a week up. it is an over am and the same in europe, in europe, in region. we've half a 1000000 cases week like this thing has gone away. so i summers of this sense that
everyone thinks it's all over and we're just getting on. and to an extent, i understand the sentiment, understand why people want to feel that way. but for a lot of the world, unfortunately this thing is only getting started. we just need to be a little more patient. remember last summer where we had everything got good and then everyone kind of relaxed. and then we kind of arrived in september or october and ended up in huge trouble. but i think that's where we're going again with a much more transmissible, very at this time around lebanon's caretaker, prime minister is warning his country is days away from what he calls a social explosion. hassan dia is appealing for international help to resolve a devastating economic crisis. his heels, he government, so sales have been you a controversial citizenship low and parliament's 59 members voted in favor and equal number 14 against the legislation prevented palestinians in the occupied
territory from settling permanently with their spices. in israel, a virtual court hearing has begun in south africa reform. the president, jacob sooner is fine against the prison sentence, soon has been ordered to spend 15 months in jail for failing to appear at a corruption inquiry. a fire at a plastic factory in thailand that killed at least one foreign fighter and injured more than 30 people has re ignited again. the public has been warned to stay out of a 10 kilometer zone around the facility only skirts of bangkok. the supreme court in the netherlands is upheld a hate speech, conviction of for a politician builders. he was convicted by an appeals court last year for insulting moroccans fil, just has been taken. the case is a political which hans and those are the headlines and i went back to the origin of the species. no. no.
the one of the amazing things about the sense of high compared to are there. so it's all over our body. embedded in our many different types of sensors, they can measure hardness, they can measure defamation of the skin and they can measure things like temperature and pain as well. all of these different senses, these different aspects of touch, comes together to give us our overall percept of our environment and help us make decisions about what to do next. eliza property assumption, which some people call the fix. it
forces at all and the hudson, the stretch of our skin over joint as well as our idea about where bodies learn space just from the prior commands that we sent to our limbs. and he's all come together to give us this somewhat complicated idea of what our body is doing. i i was interested in building robot hands and fingers. and it became clear that these were not going to be able to manipulate their environment unless they use the of time. ah,
i work with you, i have 2 devices. and so here we have these what we call the finger to parables. and these are like little robots, one on the finger, and they pressed against the finger to impart forces on the finger pad that mimic the same forces that we feel when we pick up objects in real life. so the idea is that when i pick up a block in virtual reality, these devices pressed against my finger, just like i feel when i pick this block up and realize our work is and understanding how people perceive objects in the virtual environment through these devices. we can trick people into thinking the virtual objects way more or less. if i pick this block up 10 centimeters. but on the screen i was actually showing it going a little bit higher. you would think the block is lighter. it's affecting what you feel. but without actually changing the interaction forces without actually
changing the interaction forces. ringback it's affecting what you feel without actually changing the interaction with me. you have to fit your hand around. so there's a, some faces up. on the other hand, if not, you're not going to be able to actually get a conventional medical robots like they don't have, have to or touch feedback to the human operator. and that means if a surgeon is trying to reach under something and they can't see where they're reaching, they won't have any idea what they're doing. i
one of the things we're interested in is how people can develop a sense of have to or touch feedback with a system like that. so if you read under something and you didn't see it, you would be able to feel it. 0, one of the things that we're studying is how do you recreate that sense of touch for the surgeon that can be done in a very literal sense, where we use motors and little devices apply feedback to the finger tab. or we can try various types of sensory me
ah, me. ah. so there's a spectrum between autonomy and then people deeply in the loop controlling the robot. and in between, you have various forms of, of shared control and human robot interaction. and i think the key is going to be to understand where along that spectrum we want to be. i how much control we want robots to have in our lives. but he didn't think i'd make a digit. ah, it's a woman tonight? yes, of course. one. her temperatures regulation much the same way years. but it isn't alive. yes,
she is alive. as you are. i me there were lots of old studies where they had been able to identify what parts of the brain were associated with different functions. whether it was a vision, or was it speech or hearing or movement or was it sensation that work is old? does it come back? in 2004. i wrecked my car and i broke my neck.
i was like a mile away from home. i basically don't have any function from the chest down. i don't have any finger movement or song, just kinda have 5th, which i still get along with some type of type with the knuckles that my pinkies surgery isn't currently. yeah, i want to do i think it's really cool. we had done basic science where we learned that we could decode our movements from neural activity in the motor cortex. and we were so successful at that that we figured this would be a good way to go into neural prosthetics or is this
andy and i had had multiple conversations about how do we move, what he was doing in the animals into humans. and i always told them he just needed a crazy nurse urgent and i would be happy to be that crazy or just again, the unique thing was now being able to record the signal from the part of the brain that we knew controlled motor, and specifically controlled arm in hand motion. this is, this is for the probably billions and neurons that are firing and every time you make an our movement and a hand movement. but the relationship between them are, is very simple. so that we can use very simple decoding to get
a fairly accurate readout of what your intended movement is. we are able to interpret the patterns from groups of neural firing and by looking at multiple neurons simultaneously, we could actually decode those patterns and the details of arm trajectories. so monkey versus glass has his own reflectors on it. so we can capture motion on his fingers. he's trained to grasp different objects and different ways. we started drawing movements, we studied reaching movements and we were able to really decode the fine details of these kinds of movements. yes.
when we gave them doing a brand computer interface tight surgery we took off the bone, we opened the dora it just i would expect we slid the electrodes over the surface of the brain to make sure that they're in the micro electro torres. there's $96.00 little teeny tiny gold wires that then are wrapped in a bundle. right? so you know, side the tip of an eraser has 90, you know,
so now we've got these 96 wires coming out of it and they have to go to something. so we can connect to something else. and so the pedestal is where that junction is . mm mm. busy busy busy busy mm mm for each has so he has, it is connected to 2 arrays. one is the array that goes in the motor cortex and is a recording array. and that has the 96 electrodes. so when he thinking we use those signal to generate motion, i play rock paper, scissors,
the right. you're best to tell me which finger we're touching. we're about 5 weeks from the surgery and it's a really weird sensation. sometimes it feels kind of like a like a goal and sometimes it's more of pressure middle, middle and is when we do some pretty boring stuff, but then other times and other times complaint pac man with my brain. super awesome . e, the real dina, is this really cool lady? i have met her and it was a really strange thing like being in 2 places as one i mean she's like my mom, but not really. she's more like my 1st version and i'm trying to catch up. hello,
being a 48. i am vina 48. how are you feeling today? everything is okay. how are you? was that a good answer? yes, that was a good answer. my favorite color is purple. my favorite color is orange. it is a very nice color. have any questions for bina? probably not. the real be, not just confuses me. i mean, it makes me wonder flam relied on the chrysler kind of stuff. really, really? probably not. i am the real bina. that's it. end of story. let me think, i feel really good about the real being. i feel really connected with her usually. and i'm growing closer and closer, you know, as they put more of her information and essence and to me, you have a lot of being a now, don't you? yes, lots and lots. someday i'm confident that the real being and i will totally merge
into a new super being. the progression of the thing is starting small and pretty soon it's just going to be huge and people are going to say, why did we ever think people have to really die? why did we think that. ringback it's really near being a robot in the world of human. they don't like they like me. but there are so many crazy movies where the robots are evil and they blast things up at the in the robot always gets killed. and i just don't think that's right. the the, me, the,
the the commercial systems that are out there really don't have provisions for ethical considerations built in most of the systems actually don't really have a level of awareness to begin with. they don't really know what they're doing. they're just doing it. they're very reactive in the way that because there's a fundamental notion of value
of moral value lacking in any of the systems. the me, me, me, me definitely applications for robots in all kinds of areas, including the battlefield. i, in the us, we've had a part of my sisters on the defensive side for a long time. on the often side, they are not allowed to make decisions, but it's very possible and very likely that other nation will keep developing autonomy technology. ah,
there are many more applications in societies. if we can ensure that these robots will work well with people it's our contention that for robots to do that they have to be aware of human, social and moral norms. because that's, but fundamentally our society is based on, and that's what human interactions are based on. the human behavior is controlled by 3 things. one of them is of course, integration. the other one is emotion. and the find that one is malicious.
and that we built into robots and i'm trying to build emotion into rolling, but i will never, ever build volition into once a robot has more vision, then it will start doing things according to what they want. regardless of whether that is dangerous for the human being, they will make their own decision. do you want? what was to do that? i don't know who ok, ah, kids these days. by the end of their life, they will have robots worth pneumonia. they will have entities that are
non human doing things that are not actively programmed by human. i'm more afraid of human using the eyes of amplifiers. we already have human level intelligence who want to kill or no need for after 2 years. speed up or slow down the highway control. this kind of medic ah, do i have concerns? yes. because the same both processes and engineering that go into creating a full body robot can be used to make something that the weapon
me to live. yes, i'm alive. what are you blind? i'm like living right here in front of you. come on stuff questioning the obvious fact that i'm totally alive or real me i think every technology can potentially have negative effects is it's up to us to making sure that those technologies don't get out of control. but i really think the problem is it's us. i mean, it's how we, we embody these technology right now. the biggest challenge overcome is the use of unconstrained machine learning. algorithms are trained on data sets
and are learning from the data without any provision as to whether the outcome is a desirable or non desirable outcome. that's why we take the ethical algorithms, the ethical competence and the ability of systems to really understand and work with you in your arms to be central to the future developments about the matter shut your cellphone, dot com on the part of the debate defeated the end in the us or in the u. k, because it will just come back again when no topic is off the table. what we wanted
to talk about were the one white man touching a loud dream where a global audience become a global community. jumping to the comment section and part of our discussion, there are like kinetic efforts to fell opinions on the online faith on al jazeera. ah, ah ah, it's too late for the journey to winter sponsored by cattle airways. hello there, let scott in central america and tropical storm ausa has worked its way north over cuba, its now headed for the us. we think flooding rains in southern florida as it makes
its way to the keys where we are expecting the weather and windy weather. we could see flash floods, power outages, and one or 2 tornadoes as it works its way further inland. and over the coming days it's expected to take that wet weather to georgia and the carolinas, as it heads to the north east. elsewhere in central america, there's lots of rain on the car from mexico, particularly heavy storms across the northeast and the pacific coast can cool feeling rather hot and humid with plenty of cloud cover. and the rains are continuing for costa rica and into panama. and if we follow those rains down to the north of south america, within heavy showers across columbia ranging all the way through the guy. and as for the down in the south, that is looking a lot more settled, lots of sunshine coming through a few showers along the coast and things that can warm across paraguay, and uruguay as a north wind kicks in. but there's a lot of wet and windy weather to be found as weather systems continue to pound.
patagonia, with a lot of those wintery conditions being felt in chile sponsored call cut on airways july on the can film festival return to the delight of fans and an industry hit hard by curve at 19, but will travel restrictions and social distance in off the shadow on the glitz and glamour across the globe generation change, we young activists, spicing injustices and demanding radical change. after a year long delay, japan, hudson. and unlike any the world has seen before, my son bob way showcase his personal story, offering the fresh look at the changes and challenges that bob way face today. despite going tension with agency down here is that for the next phase of filling it down on the blue nile july on july the state of oman city, the mouth of the gulf, a big eastern end of the era peninsula. if you look at the raven peninsula as
a whole, the essentially to the ancient countries to the east to west. yeah. it's sometimes known as the switzerland of the gulf because of the importance regional role. it plays in the gulf co operation council. the gtc platform on long history is not well known outside the gulf region before oil was discovered in 1962 fishing and prototyping words, main sources of income. in this film we go back over the last 500 years, a whole 90 history of tribes born rebellion and colonization, and explore how and why man still plays an important regional role. today. the morning al
jazeera as a you know me the this is al jazeera ah hello them. how am i getting? this is the news. life and bill coming up in the next 60 minutes. he's made a very premature run, rushing back to full normality about health organization or countries to be more careful in easing restrictions. assist in the pandemic.
