Human extinction warning from Oxford

Human extinction warning from Oxford | BitsOfKnowledge | Scoop.it

What are the greatest global threats to humanity? Are we on the verge of our own unexpected extinction?

An international team of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute is investigating the biggest dangers.

And they argue in a research paper, Existential Risk as a Global Priority, that international policymakers must pay serious attention to the reality of species-obliterating risks.

Last year there were more academic papers published on snowboarding than human extinction.

The Swedish-born director of the institute, Nick Bostrom, says the stakes couldn't be higher. If we get it wrong, this could be humanity's final century.

Do you mind map?

Audrey's comment, April 12, 2013 7:11 PM
This is probably one of the most efficient ways of recording a lot of information.

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface | BitsOfKnowledge | Scoop.it

Brown’s wireless BCI, fashioned out of hermetically sealed titanium, looks a lot like a pacemaker. Inside there’s a li-ion battery, an inductive (wireless) charging loop, a chip that digitizes the signals from your brain, and an antenna for transmitting those neural spikes to a nearby computer. The BCI is connected to a small chip with 100 electrodes protruding from it, which, in this study, was embedded in the somatosensory cortex or motor cortex. These 100 electrodes produce a lot of data, which the BCI transmits at 24Mbps over the 3.2 and 3.8GHz bands to a receiver that is one meter away. The BCI’s battery takes two hours to charge via wireless inductive charging, and then has enough juice to last for six hours of use.

Towards a Market for Intelligence | A Computer Scientist in a Business School

Last September, I was visiting CMU and a student asked me a question: "Do you know any crowdsourcing market, where we can assign tasks to people, as opposed to waiting for the workers to pick the tasks they want to work on?" Most crowdsourcing services do not satisfy this requirement. Mechanical Turk, oDesk, eLance, and all others typically expect the workers to express interest to a task. At most, you may be able to invite workers to participate in a task, but you cannot really assign a task to a worker.  A notable exception is Fiverr, which plays the supply side of the market; however, Fiverr has a different limitation: The tasks that can be performed are posted by the workers, and the employers pick from a set of existing tasks.  After thinking for a while, I realized that there more such markets in which you can assign tasks to "workers". The main difference is that the "workers" are not necessarily humans, but APIs. Enter the world of Mashape, an API marketplace. Are you looking for someone to classify tweets according to their sentiment? Query the Mashape marketplace for sentiment analysis API's and then assign the task to the intelligence units of your choice. With the advent of the API marketplaces, we see the emergence of marketplaces for "intelligence units". All these intelligence units (API's, or human workers) have different levels of quality, various levels of pricing, and even various levels of capacity and responsiveness. With the proper abstraction, a task management platform, can use and optimize these distributed intelligence units without having to worry about the "implementation details" of this intelligence.

Our species can’t seem to escape big data. We have more data inputs, storage, and computing resources than ever, so Homo sapiens naturally does what it has always done when given new tools: it goes even bigger, higher, and bolder.
