Autonomous Trap 001

“What you’re looking at is a salt circle, a traditional form of protection—from within or without—in magical practice. In this case it’s being used to arrest an autonomous vehicle—a self-driving car, which relies on machine vision and processing to guide it. By quickly deploying the expected form of road markings—in this case, a No Entry glyph—we can confuse the car’s vision system into believing it’s surrounded by no entry points, and entrap it.”

-James Bridle

using salt circle motor runes to trap driving AI is the most cyberpunk thing I’ve ever seen


I feel like this shares an important connection with the “make a cat sit in a specific place by making a square out of blue tape” Phenomenon, namely that self-driving cars are secretly cats and both are def magically imbued beings, susceptible to glyphs.
