#Singularity University, les technologies exponentielles | #transhumanism | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
Cette université un peu particulière, qui considère que les technologies bouleversent fondamentalement l'humanité, se délocalisera deux jours en Europe en novembre.
luiy's insight:

Cela dit, les membres de la Singularity University reconnaissent que la tâche ne sera pas aisée. Paradoxalement, le terme de « singularité », emprunté à la physique, désigne un événement sans précédent, d'une telle ampleur qu'il empêche totalement de prévoir ce qui arrivera ensuite – à l'image des phénomènes inconnus se développant aux abords d'un trou noir...

 

Neil Jacobstein n'imagine pas que les technologies exponentielles provoquent un bouleversement aussi radical, mais il entrevoit un risque majeur, déjà évoqué par Ray Kurtzweil, inventeur du concept de singularité dans cette nouvelle acception :

 

« Certains humains s'intégreront de plus en plus aux systèmes d'intelligence artificielle, selon un mode opératoire encore inédit. Par contre, ceux qui seront exclus de ce niveau d'interconnexion avec les machines ne comprendront plus du tout le nouveau monde. »

MindRDR Is A Google #Glass App You Control With Your Thoughts | #cyborgs #throughmind

MindRDR Is A Google #Glass App You Control With Your Thoughts | #cyborgs #throughmind | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
Google Glass has made a name for itself (somewhat infamously) as head-mounted hardware that you can control with your voice and a sliding finger. Now, a team..

Via Jean-Pierre Blanger
luiy's insight:

MindRDR, as the app is called, links up Google Glass with another piece of head-mounted hardware, the Neurosky EEG biosensor, to create a communication loop.

 

The Neurosky biosensor picks up on brainwaves that correlate to your ability to focus. The app then translates these brainwaves into a meter reading that gets superimposed on the camera view in Google Glass. As you “focus” more with your mind, the meter goes up, and the app takes a photograph of what you are seeing in front of you.

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin | #AR #enhanced #cyborgs

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin | #AR #enhanced #cyborgs | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it

La notion de «réalité augmentée» peut être prise au pied de la lettre dans la mesure où le procédé permet de saisir des dimensions dissimulées rendues manifestes, révélant un panorama élargi des choses non directement perceptibles par les sens. Appellation qui pourrait tout autant faire l’objet d’une torsion, vu les conseils à vocation généralement commerciale, qui appelleraient un léger déplacement de la dimension plutôt flatteuse «d’augmentation», pour la prise en compte de la force «orientante», devant alors plus justement être qualifiée de «réalité orientée». ...

TOURNANT COGNITIF

 

La réalité augmentée expose la preuve patente d’une puissance virtuellement omnisciente de la technique collant désormais au corps ou faisant corps à notre perception des choses, à l’instar des Google Glass ou autres lunettes connectées qui adjoignent à l’expérience quotidienne un réservoir en théorie infini et évolutif d’indications en rapport. Ultime étape avant l’implémentation de lentilles au contact des rétines, nous érigeant comme des cyborgs non pas augmentés d’organes artificiels, mais enveloppés de données individuellement ajustées à chacun de nos «profils» et de nos situations. Dispositifs en sophistication croissante, dont on ne peut réduire la portée et les enjeux à de seules informations ou conseils prétendument «pertinents», mais qui appellent de saisir le «tournant cognitif» qui s’instaure.

luiy's insight:

Grâce au casque Q-Warrior, il sera prochainement possible pour les militaires américains de recevoir de nombreuses informations directement devant les yeux.

 

Ainsi avec ce casque à la Iron Man, il sera par exemple possible de balayer du regard pour démasquer des individus recherchés dans une foule, de prendre et transmettre des images vidéo avec la caméra, d’identifier des points sur une carte et même de diriger le combattant vers un point d’extraction. Ces lunettes intelligentes auront la particularité d’être beaucoup plus robustes que celles disponibles pour consommateurs comme les Google Glass. L’armée aurait déjà procédé à ses premières commandes auprès de BAE Systems.

Meta Launches Its #AR Eyeglass @Hologram Computer To Compete With Glass I @Cyborgs

Meta Launches Its #AR Eyeglass @Hologram Computer To Compete With Glass I @Cyborgs | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it

luiy's insight:

Meta, a Silicon Valley startup with an Israeli Defense Forces veteran at the helm, has opted to try to out-perform Glass in functionality, even if it means a significantly less lightweight product. The company recently opened pre-ordering for its first consumer product, Meta Pro glasses.


So what can the user do with an always-on hologram interface? Much of that will depend on the roughly 1,500 third-party developers who are set to receive the chunky prototype headset in early 2014.

But in one app the company demoed to press, the user can pinch a sun icon to turn a connected lamp on and off. In another, the user can create a 3D digital object and physically plop it in a 3D printer to print. The headset also displays the user’s smartphone interface, allowing him or her to use its apps through the Meta display.

Glasses to make you a real-life Tony Stark I #cyborgs #augmented | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
A California startup is creating 3-D glasses that let you interact with virtual objects in the real world.

Via Wildcat2030
luiy's insight:

A Silicon Valley startup called Meta is creating augmented-reality glasses that will let you interact with virtual objects in the real world.

"It elicits this very magical effect where you could literally place holograms on the real world, reach out and touch them with your hands," said Meron Gribetz, Meta founder and CEO.

 

Gribetz, 28, is the brains behind the technology. Originally from Israel, he moved to the United States seven years ago to study computer science and neuroscience at Columbia University.

 

As a student, he began contemplating what the next computer could be.

"All I knew was that I wanted an infinite computer screen, and I wanted to be able to touch holograms and stick them on parts of the real world," he said.

Gribetz launched the company in December 2012 and moved to California with help from Y Combinator, which helps fund and nurture promising tech startups.

Google Invents Micro Camera System for Future Contact Lenses | #Patents #AR #cyborgs

Google Invents Micro Camera System for Future Contact Lenses | #Patents #AR #cyborgs | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it

Last month Google surprised the market with a new wearable Glass off-shoot project relating to future smart contact lenses. Our report that was titled "Google Takes their Glass Vision to Smart Contact Lenses," will now act as a sort of foundational report for this invention on an ongoing basis. Today's new patent revelations cover the integration of tiny cameras into their future smart contact lenses. The user will ...

luiy's insight:

Being that this is a patent application, Google focuses on the ideas they have for future their smart contact lenses and skirts any possible health issues that may arise from wearing devices that are constantly sending and receiving wireless communications. They don't explain what materials the camera and other components will be made of to determine whether there's a risk for possible allergic reactions or if there are risks to the eye being scratched by the various components outlined in this invention.

 

Yet, to Google's credit, we see in other recent patent applications published by the US Patent Office that they have gone out of their way to demonstrate that their R&D teams have been exploring many ways to ensure that their product will be safe. Of course until it passes through the hoops of varying Governmental bodies it won't be as safe as it should be, but in the short term, Google is demonstrating that they've thought this project through from many angles including consumer safety that we'll be covering in upcoming reports throughout the coming week.

 

Google originally filed their patent application back in Q4 2012. The US Patent Office published this patent application earlier this month. Considering that this is a patent application, the timing of such a product to market is unknown at this time.

luiy's insight:

Oui, l'usage d'Internet a un impact sur la mémorisation dans notre cerveau. C'est ce que montrent les récents travaux de Betsy Sparrow, basée à l'institut de psychologie de l'université de Colombia (USA). Selon l'étude publiée dansScience le 5 août dernier(3), l'utilisation fréquente de moteurs de recherche et de ressources en ligne a modifié la façon dont nous mémorisons les informations. Les ordinateurs et internet (sans oublier les smartphones) sont devenus une sorte de moyen de stockage externe de notre mémoire, sur lequel l'humain se repose. Plutôt que de se rappeler certains faits, les internautes se souviennent de la façon de les retrouver en ligne, ou dans leur ordinateurr(4).

Smart drugs to 'moral enhancement': a chemical approach to #transhumanism | #health #augmented

Smart drugs to 'moral enhancement': a chemical approach to #transhumanism | #health #augmented | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
As part of Wired.co.uk's Transhuman Week, we take a look at what chemical enhancements there are on the horizon
luiy's insight:

Memory enhancement


Baylor University researchers have discovered a molecule called PKR, which regulates how neurons interact in memory-related tasks. When the molecule is genetically suppressed, another immune molecule called gamma interferon steps in. The understudy molecule is much better at increasing communication between neurons and making memory more efficient. By finding a chemical inhibitor for the PKR molecule the team realised it could generate the memory boost without using genetic engineering. They found a molecule that did the trick, and it could be used to develop drugs to help Alzheimer's patients combat memory loss. Likewise it could be used by people who don't have Alzheimers to turbo-charge their memories.
