luiy's insight:

Krichmar and his team are experimenting with robotic awareness and trying to teach mechanical brains to behave more like human and animal brains by programming traits that mimic obsessive-compulsive disorder or a fear of open spaces.

 

For instance, the team studied the actions of neurotransmitter chemicals serotonin and dopamine in mice as the animals solved a maze or reacted to an unfamiliar environment. Neurotransmitters are the chemicals that combine to constitute awareness and to contribute to our senses of pleasure and well-being.

Teaming up with Greenpeace to help raise #awareness of the growing disappearance of honey #bees

Teaming up with Greenpeace to help raise awareness of the growing disappearance of honey bees, this short film was produced and animated at WOODBLOCK with support…

luiy's insight:

This science-fiction infomercial was made to raise awareness of the fact that bees—which are crucial for the survival of all species, including ours*—are dying all around the world. The fact is that this video isn't too far from the truth: bees may go extinct if we don't act promptly and scientists are already working on robotic replacements.

 

Scientists at Harvard University have already created the alpha version of these robotic bees, created for "rescue operations and artificial pollination."
