a life of obscurity in russia but despite efforts to reform it there are still traces of the system he left behind people who feel that a position in parliament a position in government are certain routes to easy riches and possibly in ukraine there always will be jonah hold al-jazeera kiev. british and specter say that they found significant security problems with software supplied by chinese telecom giant huawei their report identifies defects which they say could be exploited by hackers but it stops short of calling for an outright ban on the firm's equipment the united states is pushing european nations to ban huawei for next generation mobile networks to be introduced in the coming weeks well john biggs is a reporter for tech crunch an online publication on the tech industry he says the u.k. government's problems with weiwei are nothing. what they've described here is
3:34 am
a an active refusal to fix problems that were announced it sounded like even five or six years ago and also a information that there are some open holes here they call these zero days these call they call these these exploits holes that could be used by hackers down the line ideally all these are patched up before these things go into production but in this very specific case looks like why hasn't patched those up the concern there is that if you have these switches and they're really fair they're giant machines the things that that we don't even expect to see anymore but these massive switches are fairly complicated because they have to route all our calls. in the past the you had nokia you had siemens you had a number of companies doing this and now it looks like wall weighs the number one and whatever your number one you people are going to start taking potshots at you. do they deserve. potentially that they're undercutting competitors in the each one of these countries and that's
3:35 am
a problem but if there are actual holes here that we're dealing with and that's a very big deal so they should be able to fix that and they should fix that as quickly as possible. scientists say that they've discovered a new genetic mutation in the seventy one year old woman who barely feels pain or stress joe cameron has never needed pain relief despite experiencing broken lames cuts burns and childbirth that researchers say cameron's d.n.a. has two mutations that suppress pain and anxiety while boosting happiness forgetfulness and wound healing that they hope to discovery could pave the way for treating people who suffer from chronic pain amazing story well that's it from london let's go back to come out lindo ha thank you barbara and more with barbara in the team at the top of the hour meanwhile new zealand's prime minister welcomed facebook's decision to ban any support praise or misrepresentation of white nationalism on both sides the social media giant came under increased scrutiny
3:36 am
after a gunman used facebook to live stream an attack on a new zealand mosque under the change people who search for terms associated with white supremacy will instead see a link to a nonprofit organization that helps people leave such groups ok we're going to talk about killer robots now because scientists and health care professionals have written a letter to the u.n. calling for an international ban on them but they don't yet exist campaigners say they're only a year or two away science and technology at a meeting at a honda. mention killer robots and many of us saying. of this i'm ashamed able to think feel and kill we have no way of knowing whether the kind of artificial general intelligence needed to create a scene tiant robot like this will ever be possible but here's what we already have sameeh autonomous machines dryers tanks aircraft robots big and small machines that
3:37 am
can be wittman ised even programmed to find targets but the final decision of whether to take a life lies with us so-called killer robots fully autonomous weapons that can select and kill without human intervention well they don't exist. here we don't want to see killing outsourced to machines on the battlefield or in policing or in border control an obvious circumstances this is why we call for a preemptive ban on the development production and use of killer robots as soon as possible we already have facial recognition technology to unlock hellfire and they could be used by a fully autonomous weapon and trying say to identify and then attack a target without a human heavy lift final say but what if it kills the wrong person or the machine malfunctions and continues to hunt and kill long after a conflict has been resolved whose responsibility is it when a fully autonomous weapon gets it wrong so everybody's got their experience with
3:38 am
computers not working with barns and i pads failing. and that's an inconvenience at best imagine that when you have the weapon system which is failing which is failing to turn off killer robots could be hacked and then used by your enemy forces against you and against your population and that they could be programmed to target a certain popular part of the population to go out there and to seek all military age males you. and determined them to be legitimate targets and fire upon them sixty one percent of people polled in twenty six countries last year oppose fully autonomous weapons twenty eight countries have signed up to a ban to companies scientists researches and engineers in their thousands have over the years pledged not to knowingly create killer robots but plenty of that those are embracing artificial intelligence and war fia and states like israel russia
3:39 am
south korea and the united states are among those resisting the ban countries may agree we're all better off without killer robots but no one wants to be left behind on the battlefield. yes.

3:58 am
could face the same violations the usually face at the hands of people smugglers in libya multis prime minister joseph muscat. that. is going to follow the international rules in this respect but as for libyan coast guard libya's coast guard officials say that it's their right to capture the migrants as long as they have entered libya illegally and have sailed of libyan sure illegally we understand that some of those migrants could be proved innocent and they can apply for asylum in malta but some others will probably be guilty because they are accused of hijacking. the vessel. venezuela's opposition leader one bill has been barred from holding

4:00 am
have because they're barring him from running an institution the opposition control national assembly that the government that nicolas maduro already consider is illegitimate so it's difficult to understand exactly what it takes that this could have short of course of trying to arrest him but do you think it can in any way affect the stalemate that we're seeing currently in venezuela and have been seen for a couple of weeks. probably probably not and actually the only there's probably been a long. one in self. interest in president we've seen these challenges continuing challenges against the government and the collapse and i do though it's difficult to see how this could be affected and why door already responded to this and now.
