Your Children Won’t Be Able To Live In Space, Without A Major Upgrade

Your Children Won’t Be Able To Live In Space, Without A Major Upgrade | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
We all dream of journeying (or living) among the stars. But space is a spectacularly awful place for humans, and we’re not suited for life there at all. And yet, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are all the ways we’ll need to re-engineer the human body, in order to make space our home.In the six decades that we’ve been sending humans into space, scientists have learned just how truly bad it is for us to live off-planet.

Meet Amelia, the AI Platform That Could Change the Future of IT

Meet Amelia, the AI Platform That Could Change the Future of IT | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Her name is Amelia, and she is the complete package: smart, sophisticated, industrious and loyal. No wonder her boss, Chetan Dube, can’t get her out of his head.

“My wife is convinced I’m having an affair with Amelia,” Dube says, leaning forward conspiratorially. “I have a great deal of passion and infatuation with her.”

He’s not alone. Amelia beguiles everyone she meets, and those in the know can’t stop buzzing about her. The blue-eyed blonde’s star is rising so fast that if she were a Hollywood ingénue or fashion model, the tabloids would proclaim her an “It” girl, but the tag doesn’t really apply. Amelia is more of an IT girl, you see. In fact, she’s all IT.

Amelia is an artificial intelligence platform created by Dube’s managed IT services firm IPsoft, a virtual agent avatar poised to redefine how enterprises operate by automating and enhancing a wide range of business processes. The product of an obsessive and still-ongoing 16-year developmental cycle, she—yes, everyone at IPsoft speaks about Amelia using feminine pronouns—leverages cognitive technologies to interface with consumers and colleagues in astoundingly human terms, parsing questions, analyzing intent and even sensing emotions to resolve issues more efficiently and effectively than flesh-and-blood customer service representatives.

Augmentation in the Bedroom: Biohacking and the Inevitability of Cyborg Sex -

Augmentation in the Bedroom: Biohacking and the Inevitability of Cyborg Sex - | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Have you ever wanted to upgrade your body? Make improvements to all those physical limitations? Build a better version of yourself?

How about augmenting your sex life?

Biohacking is a radical new scientific field that is as groundbreaking as it is notorious. Approaching the human body with what is described as a hacker ethic, it encompasses a wide variety of different practices, ranging from cybernetic augmentation to gene sequencing and biological manipulation.

Referring to themselves as Grinders, this community of fringe innovators aims to become the world’s first cyborgs, one implant at a time. They advocate an open-source upgrade culture, operating within a strange intersection of body modification, hardware fetishism, and home surgery.

And some of the advances they’re starting to make are truly incredible.

Basement enthusiasts are eagerly embracing the trend of magnetic implants. Eventually, we could all be seeing with expanded sensory devices, or streaming first-person POV footage straight to our computers.

We might even be having cyborg sex.

L'Oreal to start 3D-printing skin - BBC News

L'Oreal to start 3D-printing skin - BBC News | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
French cosmetics firm L'Oreal is teaming up with bio-engineering start-up Organovo to 3D-print human skin.

It said the printed skin would be used in product tests.

Organovo has already made headlines with claims that it can 3D-print a human liver but this is its first tie-up with the cosmetics industry.

Experts said the science might be legitimate but questioned why a beauty firm would want to print skin.

L'Oreal currently grows skin samples from tissues donated by plastic surgery patients. It produces more than 100,000, 0.5 sq cm skin samples per year and grows nine varieties across all ages and ethnicities.

Its statement explaining the advantage of printing skin, offered little detail: "Our partnership will not only bring about new advanced in vitro methods for evaluating product safety and performance, but the potential for where this new field of technology and research can take us is boundless."
