The US government is deploying robot dogs to the Mexican border.

AAre we all doomed to live in Charlie Brooker’s techno-dystopia? In Metalhead, a season four episode of her acclaimed Netflix show Black Mirror, a woman navigates a stark post-apocalyptic landscape while fleeing from a murderous robot dog for her life. What makes the series’ mechanized beast particularly frightening is the deadly combination of a computer program’s determination with the extreme ferocity of an angry wild dog.

But that’s only TV, right? Not exactly. The military, tech, security, and political classes of this country seem united in their desire to make robot dogs part of our future, and we should all be concerned.

The latest example came on February 1, when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a Press release titled “Robot Dogs Take Another Step Towards Border Deployment”. The DHS dressed up its statement with the kind of adorable language made to warm the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. “The Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate is offering U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) a helping hand (or ‘paw’),” the statement read. Isn’t that cute? A photo of the “four-legged ground drone” accompanied the release, and the “automated ground surveillance vehicle”, as it is called, looked remarkably (and frighteningly) like the monstrous quadrupeds seen in the Black Mirror episode. But let’s not judge on appearance. The real problem is that we keep rushing towards militarized and technological solutions to what are ultimately human and political issues, creating more problems along the way.

These particular robot dogs are made by Ghost Robotics, which says its 100lb machine has been “bred” to handle “all types of natural terrain, including sand, rocks and hills, as well as man-made environments, such as stairs”. Each robot dog is equipped with a multitude of sensors and capable of transmitting real-time video and information streams. The devices are not yet operational at the US-Mexico border, but a test and evaluation program is underway in El Paso, Texas.

Listening to DHS, it all sounds so lovely and so next-gen — until you realize what we’re talking about is the further encroachment of government surveillance on our daily lives. As Electronic Frontier Foundation Remarks“the people who live along the border are among the most heavily guarded people in the United States. A massive amalgamation of federal, state, and local law enforcement and national security agencies is flying drones, install cameras and fair in general attempt to deny civil liberties – capture the general comings and goings of people who live and work near the border.

Then there is the issue of lethal force. These specific land drones may not be armed, but Ghost Robotics is already infamous for the combination of a robot dog and a robot gun. In 2021, small arms maker Sword International (should these companies choose such dystopian names?) equipped a robot dog of Ghost Robotics with a bespoke weapon, called a “Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle” or Spur. This cherished invention was unveiled at the annual conference of the Association of the United States Army.

Incidentally, American politics not only “does not prohibit the development or employment” of killer robots (formally known as “lethal autonomous weapons systems” or laws), but also opposes any international precautionary ban. Meanwhile, as the Congressional Research Service notes, Israel has already exported what many consider a lethal autonomous weapons system to Chile, China, India, South Korea and Turkey. We are running out of time for a solid international dialogue on this issue.

Domestically, the short history of the use of robot dogs in our cities is also troubling. The Honolulu Police Department used around $150,000 in pandemic funding to buy its robot dog, which it then used to scan eyes and take temperatures homeless people to check for Covid symptoms. The practice raised alarm bells with advocates who said the practice was fundamentally dehumanizing. Needless to say that no person lodged was treated in this way.

And after public outcry in 2021, the New York Police Department returned its $94,200 robot dog, Digidog. This robot was deployed in a home invasion in the Bronx and a tense situation in a public housing building in Manhattan, attract attention angry of New Yorkers. Once again, many black and brown New Yorkers felt over-policed, over-policed ​​and under-funded.

“You can’t give me a living wage, you can’t raise the minimum wage, you can’t give me affordable housing; I work hard and I can’t get paid time off, I can’t get affordable childcare,” Rep. Jamaal Bowman said in a video he posted on Twitter. “Instead, we have money, taxpayers’ money, going to robot dogs?”

Bowman is not alone. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized both the NYPD’s robot dog in 2021 and the recent news of robot dogs on the border. “It’s shameful how both sides are fighting tooth and nail to defend their ability to pour endless public funds into militarization,” she said recently. tweeted. “From tanks in police departments to corrupt military contracts, funding for this violence is bipartisan + non-controversial, but health care + housing is not. It’s BS.

She’s right, of course, as is Bowman. Where exactly are our priorities?

The Biden administration has a chance to stop this program before the border becomes yet more of a militarized technological dystopia. We are so easily mesmerized by the enormous capabilities of technology, but the fact is that techno-military solutions to human problems too often create more problems than they solve. Just ask the homeless people of Honolulu, the poor in New York City and – if the program isn’t canceled – asylum seekers at the border. These are the people whose daily realities are increasingly weaponized by this technology. And because they are vulnerable and without political influence, they are the ones who live closest to an episode of Black Mirror. Meanwhile, the rest of us are being sold a list of high-tech merchandise that brings together everything Americans love — tech, dogs, and guns — and told to believe it’s all for the best.

Listen, I love my technology and all it can do as much as anyone else, but when our adoption of technology reduces rather than enhances our dignity, then we have a problem. Humans deserve better. And frankly, dogs too, even robots.

AUSTIN (KXAN) – A boil water advisory was issued for users of Austin Water on Saturday evening. Additionally, emergency water restrictions have been issued meaning residents are urged to conserve water.

A statement from Austin Water says Austin Water’s Ullrich Water Treatment Plant is out of service due to an “internal treatment process issue that has resulted in elevated turbidity in the plant.”

“It looks like it will be over in a few days,” Austin Mayor Steve Adler said in the statement.

KXAN is working to determine if the problem was caused by this week’s winter freeze in central Texas.

Austin Water says it is increasing water production at two other water treatment plants, Davis and Handcox, and managing water lines to keep water service getting to customers. . There have been no power outages at drinking water plants since this report was last published.

Austin Water is expected to hold a press conference Saturday night. KXAN will broadcast it live in this story.

This is Austin Water’s first boil water advisory since the February 2021 winter storm. Austin Water issued a boil water advisory that lasted nearly a week on February 17, 2021 when the city’s largest water treatment plant temporarily lost power during winter storm power outages.

What to do during a boil water advisory

During a boil water advisory, you must use bottled water or boil tap water for drinking and for preparing and cooking food. Don’t use water from a device connected to your water line, such as ice or water from a refrigerator, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

In many cases, you can use tap water to wash your hands. When it comes to bathing or showering, be careful not to swallow any water. Don’t use it to brush your teeth, says the CDC.

The CDC says it’s generally safe to use washing machines and wash clothes as usual. As for your dishwasher, that too is generally safe as long as your final rinse temperatures reach at least 150 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the CDC.

Who is affected by the boil water advisory

The press release says all Austin Water customers and retail customers Districts and wholesale water utilities in Austin must follow the advisory.

Here is a list of affected retail customers according to Austin Water:

  • night falcon
  • Travis County WCID 10
  • Windermere
  • Creedmoor-Maha WSC
  • morning side
  • river ridge
  • San Leanna
  • Marsha WSC
  • Wells Branch MUD
  • Northtown Mud
  • Manor
  • rolling wood
  • Sunset Valley
  • Upper Valley
  • Mid-Tex Utilities
  • North Austin MUD 1

Who should save water?

Emergency water use restrictions were issued by Austin Water Saturday at 7:30 p.m., which means all customers must limit indoor water use and stop water use outside.

Residents should not use water for irrigation or foundations, washing vehicles (including at commercial car washes), washing sidewalks, adding water to pools and spas, or operating a fountain or an ornamental pond unless necessary for a pet.

Commercial users should reduce water unless necessary for health and safety. Commercial customers should not use water for irrigation or commercial car washing. Manufacturing groups that average over 100,000 gallons per day should reduce water as much as possible.

Austin City Water Stations

Austin Water is setting up Saturday night water distribution sites for anyone in need at the following locations:

  • Glen Bell Service Center: 3907 South Industrial Dr.
  • North Service Center: 901 W Koenig Ln.

The Austin Water manager said he will add more water pick-up locations on Sunday.

KXAN will update this story as more information becomes available.

Biden administration officials will meet with key software developers and big tech companies like Apple and Google on Thursday to discuss ways to make open source computer code more secure after a a critical vulnerability has arisen last month, according to U.S. officials, it could have affected hundreds of millions of devices around the world.

The virtual meeting, which will be attended by officials from the White House, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and other departments and agencies, will focus on “what worked and what can be done about it.” other to secure open source software. which we all fundamentally rely on, ”a senior administration official told reporters.

The guest list includes executives from Amazon, parent company Facebook Meta, IBM and Microsoft, among others, as well as open source software organizations Linux and Apache, according to the White House. Open source software is publicly available code that Internet users can inspect and modify on behalf of the collaboration.

Analysts say the latter two nonprofits are crucial in addressing the issue, as countless software products sold by the world’s biggest tech companies rely on open source code.

The Apache Software Foundation, which is run by volunteers, manages Log4j, an extremely popular software that organizations use to save data in their applications. Public disclosure of an easy-to-exploit bug in Log4j in December run a race between hackers trying to break into vulnerable systems and businesses and government agencies trying to plug the hole.

To date, the impact of the vulnerability has not been as severe as some feared. U.S. officials say there is no evidence federal agencies were breached using the Log4j flaw. But officials also warn that it could be months before they know the full extent of the bug’s impact, given the software’s widespread use.

In a briefing with reporters on Monday, Jen Easterly, head of DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, called the 2017 hack by credit reporting agency Equifax a warning.

the infringe, which compromised the data of about 145 million U.S. consumers, was not made public until September 2017, but was made using a flaw in open source software discovered in March of the same year. The Justice Ministry accused four Chinese military officials in 2020 of carrying out the hack to steal trade secrets and for espionage purposes.

The Federal Trade Commission warned US businesses in a press release this month to address the Log4j vulnerability in order to “reduce the likelihood of harm to consumers and avoid FTC lawsuits.” The agency cited the Equifax breach in 2017, after which the credit reporting agency had to pay around $ 700 million to settle lawsuits brought by the FTC and US states.

“As a company, we need to fund critical open source projects [that] technology vendors rely on us and make us all vulnerable when vulnerabilities are discovered, ”said Chris Wysopal, former member of an influential hacker collective that warned Congress about Internet vulnerabilities in 1998.

“I hope the White House has invited members of the Apache group or other prominent open source maintenance managers so that they can hear about the struggles of these volunteer teams and the resources they could use on the more, “Wysopal, who is now chief technology officer at cybersecurity company Veracode, told CNN.
