What will happen to us?

The Royal Institution of Great Britain has stood on the same site since 1799, and on most days it would seem one of the older and fustier buildings in central London.The institution’s 212 years of existence suddenly contracted, and went from seeming unimaginably long to unimaginably short.

“Our sun formed 4.5 billion years ago, but it’s got 6 billion more before the fuel runs out,” Sir Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, told the audience seated among the busts and weathered books of the institution’s second-story library. “It won’t be humans who witness the sun’s demise: It will be entities as different from us as we are from a bug.”

Petri dish brain has 12 second memory

Petri dish brain has 12 second memory | Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
This petri dish contains an artificial brain consisting of about 60 rat neurons. It's not much, but that doesn't stop the brain from having about 12 seconds worth of working memory, which is probably just long enough for it to start wondering what the heck it's doing in a petri dish anyway.

Now that they've got this brain in a dish remembering things, the researchers plan to use it to try to figure out just exactly how our brains go about transmitting electrical signals, ...
