Video: A Robot With a Human Skeleton

Video: A Robot With a Human Skeleton | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Over at BBC, mathematician Marcus du Sautoy has examined what he’s calling the world’s first anthropomimetic robot--a robot that mimics in extremely high anatomical detail the movements and construction of the human body. The robot, named ECCEROBOT, possesses artificial analogs of human bones, muscles, and tendons that endow it with human-like motions and--perhaps someday--will imbue it with human-like intelligence.

Framing Optimization in Contemporary Architecture

Framing Optimization in Contemporary Architecture | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Optimization, as a concept per se, is anything but a new concept[2]. Nature, as well as humankind, has always strived to do things better, which usually means increased performance of the resulting object[3] coupled with less effort spent doing the thing itself.

There is No “Cyberspace” » Cyborgology

There is No “Cyberspace” » Cyborgology | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The words and ideas we use to make sense of the Web owe as much to science fiction (particularly, the cyberpunk genre) as they do to the work of technicians or to rigorous scientific inquiry. This by no means a bad thing; the most powerful of such literary works call upon our collective imagination and use it to direct society to prepare for major transformations looming on the horizon. William Gibson’s (1984) Neuromancer was, no doubt, one such work. Neuromancer features the exploits of a “console cowboy” (i.e., a computer hacker) named Case, who travels across a dystopian world serving a mysterious employer. The work is notable for popularizing the term “cyberspace,” which Gibson coined a couple years earlier in a short story called “Burning Chrome.”

Talking Data With Your Doc: The Doctors | Quantified Self

Talking Data With Your Doc: The Doctors | Quantified Self | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

One day you decide to lead a data-driven life and naturally data collection seeps into the realm of health. Maybe you buy a Zeo to better understand your sleep patterns. Or maybe you decide to start tracking your blood pressure with one of the various new connected tools. Heck, maybe you’re just tracking your daily pain symptoms using plain old paper and pencil. Whatever it is you’re tracking, most likely you have the urge, the need, to take it to your physician or medical provider. That data represents you, the whole you, not just the you that sits on that sterile paper that’s rolled onto the examination bed in the cramped room with the poor lighting and six-month old issue of Time magazine.
