    Well, US law enforcement could enlist the help of mosquitoes so they could spy on you and get your DNA at the same time. :rolleyes:

    Wow. This seems like a little bit of overkill.

    it is unless you want to use war funding and law bipasses to develop something that can be used unresponsibly later down the road.

    The article is confused to the point of uselessness. It seems to be combining at least three unconnected lines of research.

    The first one described seems like an expensive way to get a load of images of light bulbs and candles, that being just about all that moths can manage to find.

    Much though it pains me to criticize the 'Tute, the MIT AI Lab (which might be what's cited in the article - it's none too clear) is not as hot as it thinks it is. In my student days the AI guys were Marvin Minsky, Ed Fredkin, and that crew. They really thought that they were going to solve the problem of artificial intelligence in about five years.

    Danger danger, Will Robinson - hubris alert!

    Five years later they hadn't even figured out what intelligence is, let alone how to synthesize it. Maybe they're gotten better since then, but maybe not.

    I just hope it's not running a Microsoft OS. I mean how the hell would you reboot a moth?

    "AI" has been shunned as a term by the leading researchers in the field.

    I can see the headlines now: "terrorists using raid and off to thwart U.S. intelligence".:eek:
