ReRAM can now store and process data in the same chip | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Computer data commutes from the system memory to the processor, but now researchers have found a way to help that data effectively work from home. The team is developing chips that can process information where it’s stored, potentially allowing for faster, smaller and more efficient devices.

The Privacy Threat From Always-On Microphones Like the Amazon Echo

The Privacy Threat From Always-On Microphones Like the Amazon Echo | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
A warrant from police in Arkansas seeking audio records of a man’s Amazon Echo has sparked an overdue conversation about the privacy implications of “always-on” recording devices. This story should serve as a giant wakeup call about the potential surveillance devices that many people are starting to allow into their own homes.

Engineers Have Released Plans for a 5-Km-High Skyscraper That Eats Smog

Engineers Have Released Plans for a 5-Km-High Skyscraper That Eats Smog | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
2017 only just arrived, but one manufacturing company is already looking 45 years into the future.

Arconic, a materials science company, has envisioned a 3-mile-high (4.8-km) skyscraper built from materials that are either in-development or have already been brought to market, including smog-eating surfaces and retractable balconies.

The tower was concocted as part of the company’s larger campaign known as The Jetsons, an homage to the 1962 cartoon set in 2062. Arconic’s engineers worked alongside futurists to imagine the technologies that will be most useful several decades from now.

Sherri McCleary, one of Arconic’s chief materials scientists, says one of the most exciting and immediate projects is EcoClean, a special coating that helps buildings self-clean and purify the surrounding air.

It was first released in 2011 and offers a number of benefits over traditional pane glass windows, McCleary says.

"The functional coating provides aesthetics, it provides maintenance benefits, and it also provides a benefit to the surrounding environment by reducing the content of pollutants around it," she tells Business Insider.

EcoClean works with help from light and water vapour, which mix with the chemicals in the coating to produce atoms known as free radicals.

These free radicals pull in pollutants from the air and break them down to get sloughed off the side of the building along with dirt and grime - almost like dead skin.

I hope this ambitious project "gets off the ground."  Human-cause pollution will eventually kill us if we don't figure out a way to mitigate its damage.  This futuristic skyscraper is just one of many ideas advanced to control the waste that is devastating our planet.

For Benkler, network pragmatism is fundamentally about the embrace of the diversity of organizational forms. This pursuit of an “organizational bricolage” resonates with our understanding that platform cooperatives are but one practical near-term alternative. They are part of this bricolage of the solidarity economy, the pro-commons movement, and various other successful organizational forms including B-corps, non-profits engaged in economic production, philanthropic LLCs, and, central to our community, platform co-ops."

How a computer sees history after "reading" 35 million news stories

How a computer sees history after "reading" 35 million news stories | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
So far, humans have relied on the written word to record what we know as history. When artificial intelligence researchers ran billions of those words from decades of news coverage through an automated analysis, however, even more patterns and insights were revealed.
nukem777's insight:
""What cannot be automated is the understanding of the implications of these findings for people," said Dr. Tom Lansdall-Welfare, who led the computational part of the study. "That will always be the realm of the humanities and social sciences, and never that of machines.""

EU to debate robot legal rights, mandatory "kill switches"

EU to debate robot legal rights, mandatory "kill switches" | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
A draft report submitted to the European Parliament's legal affairs committee has recommended that robots be equipped with a "kill switch" in order to manage the potential dangers in the evolving field of self-learning autonomous robotics.

The broad-ranging report, recently approved by the legal affairs committee, contains a variety of proposals designed to address possible legal and ethical issues that could arise through the development of autonomous artificial intelligences. These include the establishment of a European Agency for robotics and AI, plus a call for discussing the implementation of a universal basic income as a strategy to address the possible mass unemployment that could result from robotics replacing large portions of the workforce.

In a supreme case of life imitating art, the report opens by referencing Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and later suggests Issac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics as a general principle that designers and producers of robotics should abide by.

Issues of identifying legal liability in regards to the potential harmful actions of robots are prominently discussed in the report. As robots develop cognitive abilities that give them the ability to learn from experience and make independent decisions, the question of legal responsibility becomes an urgent one to address. The report asks how a robot could be held responsible for its actions, and at what point that responsibility falls on either the manufacturer, owner or user.

Interestingly, a proportionate scale of responsibility is proposed that takes into account the capacity of a robot's self-learning abilities. The report states,

"the greater a robot's learning capability or autonomy is, the lower other parties' responsibility should be, and the longer a robot's 'education' has lasted, the greater the responsibility of its 'teacher' should be."

prgnewshawaii's curator insight, January 16, 4:43 PM

The union of science fiction and science fact is upon us.  The wonders and cautions described by Isaac Asimov in a series of novels ("I,Robot" among them) are soon to become a part of our daily lives.  The potential dangers and opportunities afforded by self-learning autonomous robots are now so serious that the European Union is debating robot legal rights and the use of mandatory "kill switches" to stop robots from displacing humans. Be careful what you wish for.  The singularity is sitting next to us.


Are we prepared for how our lives will forever change?  I don't think so.
