PORTLAND, OREGON - The U.S. military on Thursday christened an experimental self-driving warship designed to hunt for enemy submarines, a major advance in robotic warfare at the core of America's strategy to counter Chinese and Russian naval investments. The 132-foot-long (40-meter-long) unarmed prototype, dubbed Sea Hunter, is the naval equivalent of Google's self-driving car, designed to cruise on the ocean's surface for two or three months at a time — without a crew or anyone controlling it remotely. That kind of endurance and autonomy could make it a highly efficient submarine stalker at a fraction of the cost of the Navy's manned vessels. "This is an inflection point," Deputy U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Work said in an interview, adding he hoped such ships might find a place in the western Pacific in as little as five years. "This is the first time we've ever had a totally robotic, trans-oceanic-capable ship." Air, land, sea drones For Pentagon planners such as Work, … [Read more...] about US Military Christens Self-driving Warship

Video Player Close HONG KONG, April 16 (Xinhua) -- Secretary for Security of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government John Lee said on Friday that the "black terror" in 2019 has seriously damaged Hong Kong's rule of law and people's law-abiding awareness, resulting in a rise in local crimes for two years in a row. Lee said at a Legislative Council meeting that the number of crime cases in Hong Kong had been on a downward trend in the past 40 years before the social unrest, but it rose by 9 percent and 7 percent respectively in 2019 and 2020, notably the fraud, extortion, drug and gambling cases. He said that the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the HKSAR has greatly contained "black terror", and other criminal acts related to "Hong Kong independence" and collusion with external forces. However, social security risks remain as some people have continued to use the media, culture and art to advocate "Hong Kong … [Read more...] about “Black terror” drives up Hong Kong crime figures for 2 consecutive years
