A burger-flipping robot has just completed its first day on the job at a restaurant in California, replacing humans at the grill.Flippy has mastered the art of cooking the perfect burger and has just started work at CaliBurger, a fast-food chain.
The robotic kitchen assistant, which its makers say can be installed in just five minutes, is the brainchild of Miso Robotics.
“Much like self-driving vehicles, our system continuously learns from its experiences to improve over time,” said David Zito, chief executive officer of Miso Robotics.

New Facebook pages have sprung up to keep spreading photos of naked women, a sign that the scandal engulfing the Corps isn’t going away.
The Facebook group at the heart of a U.S. Marine Corps nude-photo sharing scandal has been busted, but at least two new private groups have sprung up and are defiantly sharing the same.A private Facebook group called Marines United—with more than 30,000 current and former male Marines, U.S. Navy Corpsman, and British Royal Marines—was caught sharing thousands of nude photos of women without their consent. Hundreds or thousands joined chat rooms with links to Dropbox and Google drives filled with videos and images of female Marines, both nude and clothed, as well as Marine wives, ex-wives, girlfriends, and ex-girlfriends. In some cases, dozens of the women were identified by their full names, ranks, and location of duty station.After journalist and former Marine infantryman Thomas Brennan broke the story on March 4, thousands of members exited the group and moderators and admins tightened any restrictions they could find. Almost immediately, posting and sharing of the videos and photos shifted to other groups or sites and resumed, and in some cases even accelerated.

Drone aircraft recently carried out unauthorized intrusions over Air Force and Navy nuclear facilities, and the incidents pose a growing threat, the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command disclosed to Congress Wednesday.Gen. John E. Hyten revealed the drone threats in written testimony before the House Armed Services Committee for a hearing on nuclear deterrence.“Of recent concern have been the unauthorized flights of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) over Navy and Air Force installations,” Gen. Hyten said. “These intrusions represent a growing threat to the safety and security of nuclear weapons and personnel.”Currently, the Navy and Air Force are planning to deploy counter-unmanned aerial system defenses that Gen. Hyten said will “effectively detect, track and, if necessary, engage small UAS vehicles.”The commander said protecting U.S. nuclear forces and facilities is a top priority.“We are continually assessing threats to ensure our security apparatus is capable of denying unauthorized access or use of nuclear weapons,” he said.

MARK Zuckerberg’s top artificial intelligence expert has admitted he’s trying to teach computers to predict the future.Yann LeCun, leader of Facebook’s AI research division, said this terrifying-sounding capability is “a big part of our effort in making progress” in the development of super-smart computers.
He previously worked on the development of technology which could be useful to anyone developing surveillance systems.
LeCun contributed to academic papers exploring the creation of software which would serve as a “key component” in an automated surveillance network.
“We are very interested in the idea that a learning system should be able to predict the future,” he told MIT Technology Review.
“You show it a few frames of video and it tries to predict what’s going to happen next.
“If we can train a system to do this we think we’ll have developed techniques at the root of an unsupervised learning system. That is where, in my opinion, a lot of interesting things are likely to happen.”

The latest insane offering from the regressive left is a coloring book about menstruation that claims that men get periods too.Newsbusters reported:DC-based artist Cass Clemmer wants to destigmatize periods. But, in the process, she wants to “de-gender” them as well.Growing up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Clemmer hit puberty in a society that kept mum about menstruation and the biology behind it. Because of her personal experience, she sought to stop that silence, while also shining a light on the “men” who get periods too.To achieve that goal, she created the character “Toni” — a literal tampon with googly eyes — and started posting photos of it to her Instagram account. The project soon developed into a coloring book. Called The Adventures of Toni the Tampon, the book has a full range of feminine product characters, including Marina the Menstrual Cup, Patrice the Pad and Sebastian the Sponge.Apparently, acknowledging the biological reality that only women get periods amounts to excluding those who have mental issues about their gender and have decided to call themselves men despite being biological females.Mashable’s Katie Dupere wrote, “Sebastian the Sponge is a man. And yes, men do get periods.”No, they do not. Biological females get periods — just because a woman pretends to be a man and even gets hormones pumped into her body doesn’t change the basic, scientific fact that she has two X chromosomes and is, in fact, a woman.Leftists claim to love science so much and claim that anyone that doesn’t buy into their ideology regarding, oh say, climate change is somehow a “science denier.” Yet in terms of both climate change and gender, the science doesn’t work in their favor.According to Newsbusters, Clemmer chose a non-gender-specific name for the book’s main character so as to “affirm all menstruators.”“I’d rather help just one genderqueer or trans menstruator feel like they were seen, than sell a thousand copies only to reinforce the boundaries society draws by gendering periods in the first place,” Clemmer told Dupere.

Virginia is set to join four other states that allow hunters to don blaze pink in addition to the traditional fluorescent orange when they go out hunting.A bill passed the General Assembly in Virginia that will allow hunters to wear the bright pink color if Gov. Terry McAuliffe signs it.When the legislation was introduced in the upper chamber, Senator Richard Stuart said, “This just authorizes some alternative fashions for deer hunters. They’re required to wear blaze orange now. But those that prefer could wear blaze pink.”The Washington Post reported:Four states — Colorado, Louisiana, New York and Wisconsin — now allow hunters to wear fluorescent pink in addition to the traditional orange, said Jennifer Schultz, senior policy specialist with the National Conference of State Legislatures. Legislation is pending in Montana and Minnesota, though it failed in the latter state just last year. It also was rejected in Illinois and Maine in recent years. Michigan is studying whether “hunter pink” or any other colors would be effective and safe.“I have a 13-year-old daughter who absolutely loves [hunting], probably as much as I do,” said Del. James E. Edmunds II (R-Halifax), who proposed the Virginia bill after hearing of similar legislation in other states. “I think my daughter was intrigued by the thought of blaze pink. It may help the hunting industry. Maybe the attention it’s drawing will, perhaps, recruit more females to the sport.”

Back when it was still just Women’s History Week, the CIA decided to commemorate the occasion with a day-long symposium on “the role of women in intelligence,” including a brief history lesson on pivotal female spies.
Among the famous figures featured by the agency are …
Patience Wright, who went by the sweet nickname “The Promethean Modeler” …
Lydia Darragh, who didn’t give a dang …
