Mind over machine: Use your brainwaves to control your computer | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Brain to computer interfaces have been a topic of research for years. Using the mind to control a prothetic arm, a computer game, or a wheelchair are all things one can do today. But a new Indiegogo project aims to make the interface better.

Constructor Theory | Conversation | Edge

Constructor Theory | Conversation | Edge | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

There's a notorious problem with defining information within physics, namely that on the one hand information is purely abstract, and the original theory of computation as developed by Alan Turing and others regarded computers and the information they manipulate purely abstractly as mathematical objects. Many mathematicians to this day don't realize that information is physical and that there is no such thing as an abstract computer. Only a physical object can compute things.

Far from random, evolution follows a predictable genetic pattern, researchers find | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Evolution, often perceived as a series of random changes, might in fact be driven by a simple and repeated genetic solution to an environmental pressure that a broad range of specieshappen to share, according to new research.

Living is information processing; from molecules to global systems by K. D. Farnsworth, J. Nelson, C. Gershenson (2012) (pdf)

Abstract:

"We extend the concept that life is an informational phenomenon, at every level of organisation, from molecules to the global ecological system. According to this thesis: (a) living is information processing, in which memory is maintained by both molecular states and ecological states as well as the more obvious nucleic acid coding; (b) this information processing has one overall function - to perpetuate itself; and (c) the processing method is filtration (cognition) of, and synthesis of, information at lower levels to appear at higher levels in complex systems (emergence). We show how information patterns, are united by the creation of mutual context, generating persistent consequences, to result in 'functional information'."

"Yes, you can teach old bacteria new tricks. It is now routine to genetically reprogram microbes to make plastics, biofuels, vaccines and antibiotics. They have been engineered to detect arsenic levels in drinking water, destroy cancer cells and store digital data in DNA, making bacteria into biological flash drives.

Reinventing Society In The Wake Of Big Data | Conversation | Edge

Reinventing Society In The Wake Of Big Data | Conversation | Edge | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

With Big Data we can now begin to actually look at the details of social interaction and how those play out, and are no longer limited to averages like market indices or election results. This is an astounding change. The ability to see the details of the market, of political revolutions, and to be able to predict and control them is definitely a case of Promethean fire—it could be used for good or for ill, and so Big data brings us to interesting times. We're going to end up reinventing what it means to have a human society.
