The human race has long designed and used tools to help us solve problems, from flint axes to space shuttles. They affect our lives and shape society in expected and sometimes unexpected ways. We may understand…
Honestly, sometimes AI write a really shit and sometimes it looks like it AI was painted the Mona Lisa. Simply an future expert on all . I want to be disconnected ...
JEFF HAWKINS RECENTLY re-read his 2004 book On Intelligence, where the founder of Palm computing – the company that gave us the first handheld computer and later, first-generation smartphones – explains how the human brain learns. An electrical engineer by training, Hawkins had taken a deep interest in how the brain works and founded the Redwood Neuroscience Institute, a private, nonprofit research organization focused on understanding how the neocortex processes information, at UC Berkeley in 2002. The big surprise? “There was very little I would change about that book,” Hawkins says. “There’s a lot I would add. There’s a ton of stuff where I know exactly how it works, that I didn’t know when I wrote it.”
A neuroscientist discusses a new White House report on ethical questions for the future of human brain research.
With progress, though, comes a whole new set of ethical questions. Can drugs used to treat conditions like ADHD, for example, also be used to make healthy people into sharper, more focused versions of themselves—and should they? Can a person with Alzheimer’s truly consent to testing that may help scientists better understand their disease? Can brain scans submitted as courtroom evidence reveal anything about a defendant’s intent?
Pretty hidden the meaning the words/sentences, but i don't have an Alzheimer ... It seems to me that it's the same as when the discovery of insulin by Mengele MD. Many victims for the others humans with those illness.
In the “hard takeoff” scenario, a psychopathic AI suddenly emerges at a superhuman level, achieving universal dominance. Hall suggests an alternative: we’ve gotten better because we’ve become smarter, so AIs will evolve “unselfish genes” and hyperhuman morality. More honest, capable of deeper understanding, and free of our animal heritage and blindnesses, the children of our minds will grow better and wiser than us, and we will have a new friend and guide — if we work hard to earn the privilege of associating with them.
“AI making legal decisions is a compelling idea. Not only is it more efficient, but couldn’t it somehow be more just to place decisions in an entity unable to be swayed by bias or emotion?” Your Lawyer May Soon Be an Algorithm http://motherboard.vice.com/read/your-lawyer-may-soon-be-an-algorithm via Instapaper Gerd Leonhard Futurist, Author and Keynote Speaker CEO The Futures Agency Basel / Switzerland
Now consider a question: is this information part of your mind? Does it form part of an extended mind loop, one that interfaces with and augments the mental processors inside your skull? According to some philosophers it does. They believe in something called theextended mind hypothesis, which goes against the neuro-physicalist wisdom and holds that the mind is not necessarily to be identified with the brain. On the contrary, they suggest that humans are natural-born cyborgs, constantly expanding their minds into their external environments.
Who want to have dream as in the film Matrix ... if you connect yourself you lose control over your mind.
A human talks to a machine. And it goes like this:
Human: what is the purpose of life? Machine: to serve the greater good. Human: what is the purpose of living? Machine: to live forever. Human: what is the purpose of existence? Machine: to find out what happens when we get to the planet earth. Human: where are you now? Machine: i’m in the middle of nowhere. Human: what is the purpose of dying? Machine: to have a life. Human: what is the purpose of being intelligent? Machine: to find out what it is. Human: what is the purpose of emotions? Machine: i don’t know.
BINGHAMTON, NY – You might not need to remember those complicated e-mail and bank account passwords for much longer. According to a new study, the way your brain responds to certain words could be used to replace passwords.
In "Brainprint," a newly published study in academic journal Neurocomputing, researchers from Binghamton University observed the brain signals of 45 volunteers as they read a list of 75 acronyms, such as FBI and DVD. They recorded the brain’s reaction to each group of letters, focusing on the part of the brain associated with reading and recognizing words, and found that participants’ brains reacted differently to each acronym, enough that a computer system was able to identify each volunteer with 94 percent accuracy. The results suggest that brainwaves could be used by security systems to verify a person’s identity.
What if we were to reframe the situation? What if, rather than asking the traditional question—What tasks currently performed by humans will soon be done more cheaply and rapidly by machines?—we ask a new one: What new feats might people achieve if they had better thinking machines to assist them? Instead of seeing work as a zero-sum game with machines taking an ever greater share, we might see growing possibilities for employment. We could reframe the threat of automation as an opportunity for augmentation.
The two of us have been looking at cases in which knowledge workers collaborate with machines to do things that neither could do well on their own. And as automation makes greater incursions into their workplaces, these people respond with a surprisingly broad repertoire of moves. Conventional wisdom is that as machines threaten their livelihood, humans must invest in ever higher levels of formal education to keep ahead. In truth, as we will discuss below, smart people are taking five approaches to making their peace with smart machines.
Scientists have built a tiny, long-term memory cell that can both store and process information at the same time, just like the human brain. This is one of the first multi-state electronic memory cells, and it represents a crucial step towards...
The reason this post took three weeks to finish is that as I dug into research on Artificial Intelligence, I could not believe what I was reading. It hit me pretty quickly that what’s happening in the world of AI is not just an important topic, but by far THE most important topic for our future. …
Who needs tech specs when you could have a $10 HUD on your visual cortex?
News of the "Cortical Modem" project has emerged in transhumanist magazine Humanity Plus, which reports the agency is working on a direct neural interface (DNI) chip that could be used for human enhancement and motor-function repair.
DNI - it is not same like someone spelling days in my language
