    AI and Automation: Will you be affected?

    I work in an insurance company (albeit on the admin/facilities side), and driverless cars are indeed going to present challenges for the industry. I once watched a tie-in programme to Channel 4's sci-fi drama 'Humans', in which a professor of robotics suggested that if a driverless car has another vehicle coming towards it that can't stop and the only way to avoid a collision is to swerve onto the pavement (even if said pavement has on it, for example, a mother and child) then the driverless car will do so because it will be programmed to protect its occupants above all else.

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Next episode looks like it satirises Amazon. The title (Kerblam!) is like an onscreen caption from a fight scene in the 60s Batman show, lol.
  3. R.I.P. indeed ... thanks for the happy childhood reads and in more recent years, the spectacular movie and TV entertainment. Excelsior, sir.

    Don't cry for me, Argentina!

    Hair/nylon weave/dead animal. Hard to tell, really.

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    And then, just in time to save the day (much like the Doctor herself) ... Demons Of The Punjab comes along and ends up being the best episode since the season opener (IMO).

    Read that it was rumoured to be, but no it isn't.

    What are you drinking tonight?

    Last night, some Abbot Ale whilst watching Anthony Perkins do his thang.

    Overlord - this WW2 action-horror rattles along most entertainingly.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Psycho 2 - many years since I last saw this ... as good a sequel to Hitchcock's classic as one could hope for, I'd say. Damn, Meg Tilly was cute as a button.

    Presuming she was considerably less naked in Paddington, lol.

    Anyone else obsessed with their lawn?

    Don't have one, gardening's always looked suspiciously like unpaid work to me. And to address the underlying thread title innuendo, I don't trim my pubes either.

    It's what he wants! He wants you to shoot him!

    The Doctor Who Thread.....

    Eh ... I dunno. Maybe I'm just finding Chibnall's take on the 'Whoniverse' hard to adjust to after 7 years of Moffat's.
