Oculus’s chief scientist says realistic experiences should be in VR as the technology improves

Oculus’s chief scientist says realistic experiences should be in VR as the technology improves | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Michael Abrash says he’s looking at “specific aspects” of how VR affects us over time.
nukem777's insight:
"And the thing is, the directions you can go in [with VR are] basically—what directions can you go in in reality? I mean, you wake up in the morning, and it’s like, what will I see, what can I do? And some of them are good and some of them are not great—it’s like that. It is really another space that’s potentially as big as reality. Which is the weird thing."

The Third Wave of AI – Becoming Human

The Third Wave of AI – Becoming Human | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

Over the decades, combinations of various programming techniques have enabled slow spotty progress in AI — punctuated by occasional breakthroughs such as certain expert, decision and planning systems, and mastering Chess and Jeopardy! These approaches, and in particular those focused on symbolic representations, are generally referred to as GOFAI (Good Old-Fashioned AI). Importantly, a key characteristic that they share is that applications are hand-crafted and custom engineered: Programmers figure out how to solve a particular problem, then turning their insights into code. This essentially represents the ‘First Wave’.

Dubai has its very own official cryptocurrency

Dubai has its very own official cryptocurrency | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

The city of Dubai now has its own cryptocurrency, thanks to a new partnership fostered through the city's Accelerator Initiative. This new cryptocurrency, called emCash, runs on its own blockchain and is designed for various financial transactions.

Future city, future cash

The government of the city of Dubai launched their own blockchain-based cryptocurrency last week. The city’s economy department partnered with one of its subsidiaries called Emcredit Limited and U.K.-based Object Tech Group, Ltd. to create emCash. This new “encrypted digital currency” is a product of partnerships Dubai has cultivated through their Accelerators Initiative and brought under the umbrella of the Dubai Economy Accelerators.

“A digital currency has varied advantages – faster processing, improved delivery time, less complexity and cost, to name a few,” Dubai Economy deputy director general Ali Ibrahim said in a press statement. “It will change the way people live and do business in Dubai, and mark a giant leap for the city in harnessing game-changing innovations to improve ease of business and quality of life.

This ICO for an AI blockchain is the most tech-hype idea of the year

This ICO for an AI blockchain is the most tech-hype idea of the year | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
We might have just hit Peak 2017 Buzzword: a startup is about to launch an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to fund a blockchain-based network of Artificial Intelligences (AI), called SingularityNET.

Its goal — as the venture’s Kurzweilian name sort of gives away — is fostering the emergence of human-level artificial intelligence on a decentralised, open-source platform, spoiling the game for governments and technology colossuses striving to conjure up general AI in their secretive data centres.

The driving force behind the project is Ben Goertzel, a Hong Kong-based AI researcher and Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics, a company specialised in building humanoid robots — such as eerie talking head Sophia. Over the last few years, Goertzel has grown wary of the concentration of AI power in the hands of a few Silicon Valley giants.

“I don’t think that what’s happening—with a few companies essentially owning AI, hiring every AI researcher, and buying every AI startup— is best for humanity,” he says. “It means that eventually human-level AI will come from these big corporations.”

The Textbook Is Dying. Meet the Artificially Intelligent Software That’s Replacing It.  | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
This fall Pearson introduced an “immersive digital learning tool” called Revel that reimagines the textbook as a multimedia experience replete with videos, interactive exercises, and animated infographics. The goal, Pearson’s Stephen Frail tells me, is to make the course materials “more compelling than Facebook,” which after all is only “one click away” whenever a student is doing coursework on her computer or tablet.
