The Air Force Will Embed Airmen at Carnegie Mellon University

Earlier this week, WIRED spoke with Heather Wilson, the secretary of the Air Force. She was just finishing a visit to Carnegie Mellon University, which has developed a special relationship with the service. We spoke about the Air Force’s new Science and Technology Strategy, which was announced earlier this month, as well as their new initiatives in artificial intelligence, surveillance, and space. We unfortunately did not have the opportunity to discuss whether the allied forces of the living had misused their tactical air power advantage in the battle with the Night King.

Nicholas Thompson: Secretary Wilson, hello. Thank you for talking with WIRED.

Heather Wilson: Nick, thanks for doing this. Just as a little bit of background, Carnegie Mellon is one of our strongest research partners. In 2016 the Air Force established a six-year agreement with them on trusted swarming and autonomy. Then in the fall of 2018, we established a center of excellence [...]  read more

Fanduel is now charging inactive users $3 per month for not playing

You expect to lose money gambling, but you don’t really expect to lose it abstaining from gambling. But if you’re Fanduel user who hasn’t made any bets or deposits for two years, the site will now deduct $3 per month until you put some money on the table. You have to play to win, it seems, but not to lose.

In an email sent to such lapsed (or perhaps recovering) users, including Engadget’s Richard Lawler, Fanduel wrote:

It appears your account has been inactive for over two years, which means you have neither deposited nor entered a contest during that time. We’ve recently updated our Terms of Use to impose a monthly inactivity fee of $2.99 for any accounts that have no play or deposit activity for a period of 24+ months. Per our terms, we are providing you with 30 days notice prior to imposing this fee.

How many inactive accounts do you think you have at random sites you signed up for and never ended up using? Dozens, maybe even a hundred for some? Has any one of these sites [...]  read more

The Plan to Dodge a Killer Asteroid—Maybe Even Good Ol’ Bennu

If you go to the website for the Planetary Defense Conference, a large red box contains a warning: “This webpage does not describe a real potential asteroid impact,” it reads. “The information on this page is fictional.”

The page is for the people who look up at the night sky and think—as part of their jobs—not of pretty, twinkling stars but of hurtling objects that might crash down and pulverize us all. These asteroid-impact planners need fake threats to work through how exactly we’d survive a real encounter with a space rock headed straight for Earth. This year, the fictional killer asteroid that got their blood pumping was fake-discovered on March 26, 2019.

Somewhere between 100 and 300 meters across, this rock could crash into Earth at several points in the future, most likely on April 29, 2027. The “[risk] corridor wraps more than halfway around the globe, spanning from the Hawaii on the western end, across the US and Atlantic Ocean, and all the [...]  read more
