luiy's insight:

In a paper published on Thursday in the journal Science, physicists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology reported that they were able to reliably teleport information between two quantum bits separated by three meters, or about 10 feet.

 

Quantum teleportation is not the “Star Trek”-style movement of people or things; rather, it involves transferring so-called quantum information — in this case what is known as the spin state of an electron — from one place to another without moving the physical matter to which the information is attached.

 

Classical bits, the basic units of information in computing, can have only one of two values — either 0 or 1. But quantum bits, or qubits, can simultaneously describe many values. They hold out both the possibility of a new generation of faster computing systems and the ability to create completely secure communication networks.

En parvenant à inoculer un virus à son propre implant électronique sous la peau, un informaticien britannique souhaite mettre en garde la communauté scientifique contre les dangers potentiels que recouvre cette technologie.
luiy's insight:

Le Dr Mark Gasson prétend être le premier homme touché par un virus informatique. Dans le cadre de ses recherches sur les implants électroniques, l'universitaire britannique de Reading s'est en effet lui-même inoculé un virus informatique : il a contaminé la puce sous-cutanée qu'il s'était greffée dans la main gauche un an auparavant. Cette opération de piratage, tout à fait bénigne sur le plan sanitaire, pose d'importantes questions de sécurité concernant l'usage, notamment à des fins médicales, des puces de radio-identification (appelés communément RFID pour Radio Frequency IDentification).

Wearable Technology as a Human Right | #googleGlass

Wearable Technology as a Human Right | #googleGlass | Cyborgs_Transhumanism | Scoop.it
Hostility to the use of wearable computers and cameras threatens to limit their benefits, says Steve Mann.
luiy's insight:

Let’s value people at least as much as we do merchandise and elevate the wearable computer to the level of a security camera. We never forbid cameras to protect five-cent candies. So let’s not forbid people to protect themselves with this same kind of technology. I have proposed legislation to protect the right of individuals to remember, computationally, what they experience.

 

As wearable computers and cameras become more widespread, we will certainly need to adopt new protocols and social attitudes toward the capture and sharing of visual information and other data. But these protocols should not include discrimination against users of these valuable assistive devices.
